What it is.
New '70s is new music, by new artists that is highly influenced by the singer/songwriters of the 1970's (and the late '60s). It is made to be relevant to the same folks who bought the 100's of millions of records in that era. It also has many sub-genres including R&B, Hard Rock, Country, Blues, etc., and has an evergrowing artist, writer, and fan base.
New '70s is a movement within the music industry to create a new genre that will produce music for a forgotten audience, and provide an outlet for 1000's of writers and artists who have world-class music siiting idle.
Who's it for?
New '70s is for everyone who misses the music of 'Bread', Cat Stevens, Elton John, 'America', Carole King, 'Paul McCartney and Wings', Jim Croce, Todd Rundgren, 'Earth Wind and Fire', and many, many others.
It runs the gamut from the softer style of 'Carpenters' to 'Led Zeppelin' and 'Deep Purple'.
There are an estimated 125 million "Baby Boomers" and Gen X'ers" in the U.S. alone that , we believe, have been ignored by the industry.
Who's making this music?
New '70s is currently being released by such major artists as 'Five For Fighting', Michael Buble', John Mayer, 'Wilco', Rob Thomas , Adam Levine ("Lost Stars)". Major Indie artists include Rumer, Diane Birch, and 'The Pierces'.
Brand new artists who are releasing are 'The Robertson Brothers', Pamela McNeill, 'The Multi-Tracks', 'KATTL', Sam Mullins, and many more. We will continue to update and post links to new artists and writers on this site.
Songs such as Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" are a great example of what a New '70s song sounds like.
