Transcript of music
Rock music originated in the United States in the 1950's and was heavily influenced by rhythm and blues. It didn't take long for rock to spread to the rest of the world. (J.M.Curtis, 1954-1984)
Hip Hop was born in the Bronx, New York City in the 70's, when young African Americans and Latinos were bored with bland disco music.Hip Hop is also referred to as rap music. DJ's would isolate beats then the rap would be laid over the top (Aces and Eights 2014).
Heavy Metal came together from the need to diverge from popular music and to create a sound that wasn’t being met by the rock and blues bands of the 1960’s (Wiederhorn & Turman 2013, p. 7). Bands such as Black Sabbath in 1970 solidified the genre with their loud abrasive sound (Wiederhorn & Turman 2013, p. 7).
This style of music took the elements of bands such as Led Zeppelin as well as classical music and created a sonically heavier and more technically proficient genre (Dunn et al. 2013). Imagery became darker and more aggressive in lyrical themes, demonic album art and clothing worn (Dunn et al. 2013).
Rock music has long been associated with political activism, changes in social attitudes to race, sex and drug use. It has been seen as an expression of youth revolt against conformity. (C.Ammer, 2004)
New York City block parties in the 70's is when hip hop was born. Jamaican techniques influenced DJ's to isolate the most danceable part of a song (Aces and Eights 2014). Storytelling, commercial appeal, creativity and rhyming skills are the attributes that make hip hop artists great (Quora 2012).
While keeping much of its original fan base, Hip Hop music and its culture has become popular among mainstream consumers- particularly suburban youth (Smiley 2012). As the music becomes more commercialized it was being played more on radio and this increased its fan base (Smiley 2012).
Hip hop is a multibillion dollar industry thanks to social media making it easier for artists to get promoted and makes the public aware of upcoming artists, which hopefully turns into sales. An artist’s digital footprint will also contribute to their popularity, how many followers on Facebook the number of hits on YouTube (Eskay 2014).
Loyalty is the key to the fan base, often a fan for life they live for the music that gives them an outlet and a sense of belonging (Barton 2013). Usually dressed in black sporting their favorite band tee shirt, long or dyed hair, piercings, tattoos they are quite recognizable (Krovatin 2009).
Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Sound Cloud are used by bands for marketing themselves to their fans. Online promotion has become paramount in marketing Heavy Metal (In Flames Official 2014). How good a band's live show is generates word of mouth and entices people to attend their gigs (Petrik 2009).

Rhythm and blues (aka R&B) started in the late 1940’s and made popular by the African-Americans .R&B sounds were evolved from blues and jazz and the song lyrics had meaning to them. It was mainly listened to by the black race; however it has now expanded its audience to different types of people. (Genres music 2014).
Gospel vocal techniques and practices have significantly influenced the development of R&B music (legg, 2010).R&B imagery has changed over the decades starting with glamorous gowns in the 1960's to the 1990’s & beyond saw a completely different image of leggings, low rise skinny leg jeans and tattoos becoming acceptable (singers room 2011).
Social media platforms such as facebook and youtube are highly used by artists to promote their music, albums and concerts to their fans. Most artists have their own websites to market themselves to their fans. Digital distribution is paramount in getting the music to the fans as well as an in-store for a new artist (Delante butta Murphy).
The man credited with the birth of Australian country music is Tex Morton, first recording in 1936. Initially singing American songs, demand grew so much, that he recorded Australian themed music, inspiring songwriters like Slim Dusty. Australia's most popular country music entertainer, Smoky Dawson, began his journey in 1941. (Ellis, 2006)

Although country has a strong main stream following, a split is looming as Australian country singers such as John Williamson are pointing out the "Americanisation" of Aussie Country. Singers such as Keith Urban are boosting their fan base, which is thought to be having a positive influence on the industry.

Tex Morton gave rise to country music, due to the demand for a more home grown style. In 1969, Tamworth became the home of Australian country music, each year giving hundreds of artists an open stage with the Tamworth Music Festival, Country music is attributed with being the music of our country. (Ellis, 2005)
The biggest marketing tool, that was responsible for the rise of country music, has been radio. From its inception in 1923, over 300 000 radio licenses had been issued by 1929. Country music is marketed via radio, TV, iTunes and online sites. Online catalogues allows organisers to monitor the enormous fan base country music has. (u.k., 2007)

Although R&B has changed over the decades and is now mostly favored by the new generation audience with artist like Amy Whinehouse & Beyonce, powerful songs from the original rhythm & blues can still get a dance floor moving by the fans.
Rock and Roll is often identifies with the emergence of teen culture. It was absorbed via radio, juke boxes and TV programs such as American Bandstand. This was extended to film, clothes and motor bikes. Seeing images of rock and roll musicians on TV helped spur the rise of artists fan bases. (Nolan, 2008 p.150)
In the early years, the only way to market your music was by performing, newspaper and radio. As the years went by and technology advanced we moved to TV appearances. Today, the internet has brought about a new style of marketing for artists. (computerdjsummit. 2007)
