So I’ve been on the hunt for fresh creativity, something different. A few weeks ago I responded to a tweet on Twitter and I just said that Inspire Mysmile is always looking for new artists, creativity to feature on the blog. To say the least I was over whelmed by the response that was received from artists who are so passionate and just want to be heard as so many are often ignored by industry masses. Let me say it was hard going through all of the music. So here are some of the early entries so far. As I didn’t receive enough singers to add to my ‘Green light’ playlist, I thought it would be easier to just have separate features on here instead. More artists will be added next week.
