Location Based Organization Options/Local Musician Support

   There are probably tens of thousands of amazing musicians that no one knows about- its not easy to promote your own music when you are an independent artist. As a friend said: "putting your music on Spotify and hoping to get heard is like throwing a bucket of water into the ocean and hoping someone find it...". Spotify could change that easily with a location search added to search options. 

 

   There could be genre based playlists organized by country/state (for the us)/or general city areas. Say there was a search filter option, much like other complex searchable sites, where you could type in a location and specify genres- you could then find interesting new music from places you'd never otherwise heard about. Or in addition to a discover weekly playlist made for you, there could be a "Discover Local" playlist that shows you newer releases from within a certain distance. 

 

   I think this would help musicians and listeners alike- supporting music and making the real music being made by real people accessible, rather than a handful of bands that become popular enough to get noticed by algorithms. There are so many genres now, with proper meta data entries and proper ways to search for them, I should have no problem finding new and interesting music to listen to!

 

   The evolved form of this idea would also include more local music being suggested to locals to boost the entire music scene in each city and region because by doing that, more musicians would be incentivized to tour, even semi locally and people would want to go to their shows because they would know their music. I think overall, a more supported local music scene would generate quite a change in how the music world works at this point and I think that that is much needed.
