The micro-blogging of Twitter is typically a conduit to a vast universe of information. That is definitely true of these music industry-related accounts. They provide much more than just 140 characters of commentary—they provide insight that is often elusive or just plain overlooked by mainstream media.@BackstageRider: This gal founded a website of the same name and, though based out of Vancouver B.C., travels all over the Pacific Northwest in search of great live shows and interesting interview angles.
@guerrillacandy: Thought the Seattle music scene saw its demise after the grunge movement ended? Think again. There is great music coming out of the Emerald City and you’re probably missing a lot of it. Following this account is the perfect way to fix that.
@othersongsmusic: Here’s another north-of-the-border account you should be following. Hamilton, Ontario record label Other Songs Music has been churning out music by some super-talented artists for the last couple of years. Get on board and don’t miss their next offering.
@lisa_TTRO: Okay… just one more Canadian. This Toronto blogger writes for Turn the Record Over and tweets about more than just music. Check out her timeline for a unique perspective and friendly conversation.
@pitchforkmedia: You may hate Pitchfork’s site. You may think they pander to artists who really aren’t worthy of the praise heaped upon on them. But none of that changes the fact that following them on Twitter is a good way to learn about new music.
@planetarygroup: This Los Angeles firm is focused on getting new bands noticed. As a result their Twitter account is loaded with information about new music and their website is filled with videos you should definitely check out.
