Where Most People Discover New Music

Radio has the biggest slice of the pie, but its still just a slice. A vast majority of people (65% to be exact) rely on sources outside of AM/FM radio to discover new music.

35% of people discover new music through radio but... an equal percentage can be reached by combining Word of Mouth (21%), Youtube (10%) and Facebook (4%). All of which are more accessible for an independent without a huge budget.

Many artists are sleeping on the power of Pandora. It trails Youtube by only 1%, but is a platform inherently built to help music listeners discover new music and doesn't require the added expense of producing a music video.

Twitter doesn't even show up on the list. Couple that with the recent shutdown of (a project started just a year ago to help Twitter users discover new music through Twitter) and one could assume that Twitter is not an effective medium for promoting new music.
