Did you know that the Rolling Stones started out covering Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard? Cover recordings and performances can be a great way to showcase your skills and make a name for yourself. YouTube, Glee, and The Voice have created a comeback for the cover, but many artists are reluctant to become known only for their covers. Some even believe there’s a stigma attached. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of starting out with cover recordings and what you can do to get your songs out successfully and legally.
