Since the range is wide, but they're asking for 'mainstream' appeal - seems you might choose the genre by considering the AGE GROUP most-likely being the subject or targeted.
In other words - "think 'young'..." speaking of TIME. You might work a lyric up about appealing to the young listener and their perception of TIME.
Good luck.
As an old-school, Country/Bluegrass guy - I wouldn't know where to begin.
:? :shock: 8-) :lol:

Also, they hammer on MODERN. If your blues-rock (for example) isn't contemporary enough, it'll be 'sorry, not what we're looking for'.

I agree. The listing was clear that they want "modern sounds".
