Original Artist Identity in Song - 300-Word Statement
Original Artist Identity in Song examines the variables deployed when constructing public-facing identity in original songs, and the subsequent interaction of artist identity within the market ecology of popular music. The 2017 album, CousteauX, is a case study in the construction of artist identity.
Insights into the inner workings of creative practice arise, and the analytical auto-ethnographic method observes practice for patterns and themes in the songwriting, production and touring phases of the album’s release. This practice develops a model with which to reveal those song variables with bearing on the public impression of the original artist.
