Is Social Media Needed for Your Audio?

Someone sent me a link yesterday about a group of kids that started off playing in the New York subways. This should answer the question of whether social media will help get "your name" out to the world. One day a person walked by and shot a video of them and put it on YouTube in 2016. The video went viral. According to the write up, these guys started getting a tremendous amount of gigs from this video. They no longer had to rely on people dropping dollars in a 5 gal bucket.

They created their own label and saturated their name all over social media. The simple Google search I did just on their name shows this in the attachments I uploaded for this post. Now, fast forward 1 year and one of these guys is playing at the BBC Proms 2017. His name is Leo P. Most of their videos now have over 5 mil views each. They got their break, or as some would say, were discovered by a stranger and made famous by YouTube.
