Bringing Back the Blues By Aaron Klazinga

The blues were once the popular genre to play; all the big hits out were in the blues genre, but over the years music has been simplified into a dull, simple form that we call today's pop music. Many contemporary pop stars have blues roots, but have left the blues genre entirely to pursue an easier market.

Artists that were based in the blues should go back to their roots because modern pop music lacks the depth the blues offers.

The blues is a groundwork for many styles of writing, with many different emotions and thoughts that can be expressed under the genre.

Although they are not as big as they once were, the blues will always be prominent in the music industry as a surefire genre to write under when any musician wants to get into touch with their emotions through their music.
