The change of the music scene and how music is shared now a days is such a drastic impact on todays society and how we communicate with one another. From my standpoint Soundcloud is the most efficient platform/resource for young artists such as myself to express their creativity and share limitless music for the world to hear. It really has impacted our society as a whole giving kids the opportunity to make something of their talents and ambitions. I’ve met people all across the internet mainly from Soundcloud and it has given me and my friends the opportunity to come in contact with other individuals from different countries in attempt to make a career out of our abilities. Which now seems like such a possible thing to grasp and i’m so very thankful for Soundcloud for giving me that outlook and opportunity. Remember, Always Strive and Prosper”.
