Any artist interested in promoting their career without heaps of cash or insider contacts should read this article by Chris Salmon from today’s Guardian.

You may or may not  like the music artists Chris has chosen as his examples, but every one of them is Doing Something Right in terms of leveraging the web in ways that were unthinkable even six or seven years ago:

Daryl Hall
Alex Day
Rihanna
OK Go
Tom Waits
Azealia Banks
Odd Future
Tim Burgess
Tiësto
Mike Skinner
David Byrne
Björk

…and three of my personal favourites:

Imogen Heap
Pomplamoose
Amanda Palmer

It’s such an informative and well-researched piece, it taught me loads of interesting stuff this morning. See what you think: guardian.co.uk/music/2012/feb/26/pop-internet
