You've drowned yourself in sweat, blood, and
tears. Now you have a demo or album in your hand.
What now? If you're not already doing shows it's
way past time to think about that. The public
needs to see you! (I should speak, I don't do
shows, go figure,,,)
There are many ways to "spread the word". You
need to use as many of them as possible. With
thousands, perhaps millions of website out there,
the task of picking a good one is just a pipe
dream. I say pick as many as you can! Use a main
website to which all your notifications go to.
That way if you happen to be signed onto a few
hundred sites you can filter your update taske by
activity. It works like this. I have one main
website, LEGASYSSONGS. All the other social and
music sites are signed on with that address.
Therefore, all e-mails, stats reports,
friends/fans requests, sales(!), and anything else
you elect to be kept up to date on, will land in
one single e-mail box. Then it's up to you to wade
thru and respond to them at leisure. You end up
assigning importance to each message and your
actions from there on will move you forward in
relation to thejob you have to do where your PR is
I'm only up to about 108 sites so far. These
include the perverbial myspace "artist" and
"personal" profiles. Facebook , Reverbnation,
Aimest, and many others are a must.
The beauty of centralising alerts from all your
sites is that no news from any site tells you that
your page there is seeing little or no activity.
Still, no news is a good thing too. Just because a
page of yours is dead in the water does not mean
it is not useful. Leave it up forever. At least it
will be there. You never know when a total
stranger will accidentally land on that desolate
corner of the net and discover you!
Spread it on as thick as you can. You deserve the
exposure. You deserve to be seen, heard, reviewed,
bought, sold, exaulted, applauded, screamed for,
Stay Loud! Stay Proud! Keep Pushing Back The
Cliche' Of Course
Reality isn’t the egg in the bowl. Reality is
the wire whisk moving in to do its job. Reality is
the now useless shell, discarded. Reality is the
fact that the egg will now become something else.
Granted, the same stuff is there along with a few
extra ingredients, but now that egg will become
something with another name such as, omelet,
scramble, crepe, hollandaise, or kitsch.
Reality beats us into froth. The air that fills
out our volume is called experience. Seasonings
are wisdom sprinkled in either liberally or
sparingly. We are still the delicate egg when we
splash into the hot pan, plop onto the griddle, or
slosh into the tin. Fried, boiled, or baked we
emerge as something more than what we started out
as. We are still ‘egg’ but, life and reality have
added nuances to our flavor.
Reality rips us apart and we have to pull
ourselves back together. Our new form will
inevitably be different. We struggle to keep from
being changed too much but life has a way of
changing us nonetheless. We go inexorably into the
future and evolve every step of the way. Who we
become, in comparison to who we started out as, is
all but guaranteed to be incomparable.
