Just some news ...
Hey everyone !
I hope you are all doing well. You are probably counting the days until Christmas.
As you may have seen, it has been a very long time since I last posted something on The Indie Discovery. I thought you deserved to know why.
The first reason for that, and one of the most important, is that the site has had to face several hackers attacks since nearly one year. I still wonder why they have chosen The Indie Discovery. It's a small website about music. It doesn't have thousands of daily views. I don't think they have gained a lot of things by doing that, except to exasperat me. Clement Grellier, who did all the design of The Indie Discovery, did a great work to solve each attack. I'm not sure everything is 100% solved now and that it will last for good. Cross your fingers for that !
The second reason has been my lack of free time this year. When I first created The Indie Discovery, I have moved in a new place. I wasn't doing my job for so long. I had plenty of time to listen to music and to discover new artists, and so lot of time to write about them. With years, my job has started to cut into my free time more and more. My load of work tend to increase each year. Add to that my tiredness of this job after nearly 8 years. All of that has finally brought me to think more seriously about a new career choice. My reflections progress quite well. More news next year.
Finally, few of you knows that my second passion is theatre. I'm in a member of an amateur theatrical compagny for several years. I've been working on a new play with my compagny this year, plus on another project of a sound and light show in my town, which has let me time for something else.
So, for now I'm going to bring back to life The Indie Discovery. I won't take submissions of artists in a first phase. My posts will mainly be about news concerning artists who have been featured on TID and some of my favorite artists of the moment.
I've made you a playlist of songs released by artists featured on TID since the begining of 2016.
