Jim Byrne music adventures: can you help? Who's like me?

Added on Friday 10 Jun 2011

I've been reading about how to market my music and one of the main things seems to be to find artists that are similar to me - and then find ways to let those people know I exist, i.e 'If you like so and so you will also like Jim Byrne' sort of thing.

However I've no real idea who I sound like??? I'd appreciate it if you would help me find out. Either by answering the following questions or just emailing me with your thoughts.

  • What singers/artist do you think are similar to me?
  • What other artists would you expect people to be listening to if they also liked my music?
  • What type/genre of music would you say I fall into? (i.e. singer/songwriter, pop, roots, Americana, country, rock, folk etc)
  • What age group/sex do you think would like my music?
