Another year has gone by and the X-factor song was again usurped by another Christmas number one with ‘Wherever You Are’ by the Military Wives.
Although the Simon Cowell music sausage machine is still churning out a number of good artists from the Xfactor platform like ‘Olly Murs’ and ‘Rebecca Ferguson’, there is little place for longevity for contestants with no musicality. The audience is becoming more savvy, and expects not just a polished act but a desire to write there own music and lyrics.
With the predominant use of digital recording software on PC’s, iPads it’s becoming a lot easier to write and produce your own music from the confines of your bedroom, but you still need the final recording quality if you want to send your demo USB stick to Universal.
RecordingStudioLondon are continuing their generosity to all music fans and offering a few recording session day in their Limehouse studios in London. It’s got to be the best deal for wanne-be music artists, so start strumming that Facebook like button and hopefully you’ll hit the right note and win a full days recording.

Good luck for 2012.
Incidentally, my favourite song at the moment has got to be ‘short change hero’ by the ‘Heavy’ and from this year is ‘ Lana Del Rey’ and ‘Video Games’
