whcanuck Posted July 21, 2013 Share Posted July 21, 2013 I wanted to get your guys' thoughts on something. Growing up in Canada in the 90s, I was a big fan of Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good Band, Tea Party etc., I was a little too young to appreciate the Tragically Hip at that time but now they're one of my favorite bands. I remember these bands and a lot of other quality groups like Big Wreck, the Watchmen and I Mother Earth get played on Much Music a lot, every Friday my brother and I got home from school and we turned on the MuchMusic countdown, and these bands held heavy influence. Now if you're not a fan of these groups or similar artists, that's ok, you are entitled to your opinion. But for fellow fans like myself, why couldn't they gain an audience in the U.S. Especially OLP and the Hip, they were huge in Canada. Matt Good is one of the most inventive musicians I've heard and he had no audience in the States. Perhaps it's because these artists never sought success in the States? Poor marketing by the label? What do you guys think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
