Twitter is an interesting phenomenon from a musician's perspective - so many people frantically trying to get you to listen to their song or download their album for FREE. Yes, I would say frantic is the perfect word.

Just to turn the world upside down for a moment, I decided to listen to EVERY non-superstar musician I follow on Twitter, and come up with a list of my top 5 favourite acts. I have excluded people I know and love already (Ted Russell Kamp, Aubrey Richmond, Calico The Band, Jim Doyle). I have avoided the truly frantic and focused on bands and artists that seem to be saying something in the music and not just in social media. I will post the list beginning tomorrow.
