What genre am I?
I find one of the most difficult things about releasing new music is ascribing a category or genre to it! It seems that however you publish music, it can’t be done without giving it a label.
And the problem with that is that as a creative artist I don’t really want to put myself in a specific box like that.
But as it is an unavoidable requirement…. what genre is best applied? I variously think of my solo piano music as fitting somewhere across a number of common genres. Here are the most popular ones:
- Piano / Solo Piano
- Classical / Contemporary Classical
- New Age / New Age Piano
- Ambient / Ambient Piano
- Instrumental / Contemporary Instrumental / Featuring Piano
If you are reading this, and you have been listening to my music, what genre or category would you use to describe it?
And you might find this article interesting – it describes an alternative way to describe the music you like.
