The internet is making it easy for talented artists to showcase their skills before others and grow to be highly paid artists. Internet is specifically useful to young artists who have limited backing in the form of well-connected agents to back them. There are a number of young artists who have used the internet to attain instant stardom. One such young artist is Joseph Birlem. He was a child prodigy who started showing interest in music at a very young age. He started to sing when he was just six years of age. However, he began to get some recognition only when he started using Internet as a launch pad for his future career. Taking note of other young artists, Joseph Birlem too started to promote himself on the Internet rather than depending on music companies which demand a good cut in the artiste’s pay and long-term contracts.
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
As TikTok (earlier known as Musical.ly) was becoming the platform for all the aspirational singers of the time, he opened an account on the portal and started posting his music videos on it. The channel was very well received and got more than a million followers in a short time period. In view of his success on TikTok, he also posted his videos on other social media sites. The short versions of his videos posted on other popular social media sites like Instagram too proved to be wildly popular. The number of followers of Joseph Birlem on Instagram too increased to 567K very quickly. His growing popularity made him emerge as one of the leading personalities on TikTok. During the month of December 2015, Joseph Birlem emerged as one of the most popular young singing sensations along with the likes of Loren Beech. For a young star like Joseph Birlem, this was considered to be a major achievement by the media and his fans.
Another important factor which has contributed to his meteoric rise was his association with another teen internet sensation, Tayler Holder. Tayler too was a young musician who was born in Texas. When he migrated from Texas to California, he immediately collaborated with Joseph Birlem because of their common interests. Together they started a YouTube Channel called Joey and Tayler in January 2016. The channel was an instant hit among the young audiences. Both Tayler and Birlem share the revenues they make from their collaborative YouTube Channel.
