Why is music such a young person's game? Why don't we se more people starting out after the age of, say, 25 or 30, and making it?

Because you obviously only listen to trash where it mostly matters to look good to become famous.

>>85226919
you arent paying attention
trendy shit is a young persons game, but who the fuck wants it?

25 is young as hell. there are plenty of 30 and 40 year olds making music that you listen to.

Because at this age people already have a normal and stable job.

Young people have more energy and a sort of naive optimism that both help with making music.

No, Grimes is trolling Poppy. She's actually 26.

>Grimes is 30
Yeah, but Grimes was 19 when she started and 23 when she blew up

>>85226919
sex sells. old men write and play the music and young girls sing and do the music video. that is the pop industry model and it's been that way since Francoise Hardy.

Sufjan Stevens first saw mainstream-ish success with Illinois when he was 30, and only reached mainstream popularity with Carrie and Lowell (alongside the CMBYN soundtrack) in his 40s.
James Murphey started LCD Soundsystem at the age of 30.
A lot of art-pop indie chicks like Janelle Monae and Grimes are in their early 30s.

You might love them or hate them (you can't deny their success), but Mark Knopfler started Dire Straits when he was almost 28yo after quitting his job as a college lecturer.
