Promoting yourself as an artist

You could be one of the best singer songwriters in the world but if you don’t promote yourself well enough, no one will hear and appreciate your music. In fact, some consider promoting yourself the hardest part of being an artist because to a lot of people, writing music is natural but getting people to listen to it is a whole different ball game. So what ways are there to get your music out there and listened to by the public and potential labels who are looking for artists to sign? I spoke with David from flowink.co.uk, a digital agency located in Bishops Sortford, about music promoting and he mentioned that there are “many ways to promote yourself as an artist” and to not “limit yourself to one particular type or method of promoting”. I pressed him further about some of the different ways and he sent me a short list of some of the most popular and successful ways to get yourself noticed as an up and coming artist.

Soundcloud

This is a great way of showcasing your music in a quick, easy and mobile format that can be accessed anywhere and at any time as long as there’s an internet connection. This is probably the most common way of showing people your music and it’s really easy to just copy and paste your track link and send it to people to listen to. Also people can search for your artist name and find your tracks or even search for the tags that you’ve labelled under such as “dubstep” or “hip hop” etc. Sending your tunes off to prospective labels is also really simple as most have a soundcloud drop box which enables fast and easy file sending.

Youtube

This can be used like soundcloud as in that it’s a great way of getting your music on the internet in an easy to find format, however youtube is known more for videos than audio only so a good way to stand out here is to create some visuals to go with the audio. This doesn’t mean you have to create a multi millions style music video, however creating interesting and relevant visuals that match the music can really help a tracks view count and could be a good USP to your music.

Twitter

This is a good way to promote yourself as a person/artist rather than promoting your music per say. Twitter is a fast and fun way of interacting with people from all over the world and if you apply this as an artist, it’s a great way to interact with fans and listeners. Artists that interact with their fans will always be much better at promoting themselves than ones that don’t so it’s something to keep in mind. Stay active on twitter and promote yourself as a person and as a musician!

Posters

This is quite an old school way or promoting but there’s a reason why it’s still done. It works! Promoting a new track/album by putting up posters around universities, city centres or anywhere that you deem to be appropriate can be a long process but if you make the poster different and eye catching, it will perk some interest. You could also try something different like hidden messages and codes for the viewer to figure out. Anything that imprints your artist name in the back of the minds so the next time they’re on youtube or soundcloud, they type your name in!

Mixtapes

Ok it’s more mix CD’s now but it’s the same thing! Creating a Cd with your latest tracks is a great way of getting your music heard by people who wouldn’t usually hear it. It will cost you money of course (the price of the CD’s/labels etc) but it’s a very effective way of getting your tracks out into the local area to create a bit of buzz.

What Has Digital Music Done To Bring Convenience To Your Life-Find Out Why Its Been So Great For Many People

Anything in our lives that can make things easier or less stressful is usually something that most of us are searching for and because of the tremendous advancements in technology, digital music sources have grown enormously throughout the years, making our listening abilities so much more convenient and easier, than they ever were in the past years, when our parents were growing up. There were no little compact ways of enjoying music, everything was way too bulky, making it impossible to carry your music anywhere you went, unlike it is for all of us now days. 

Digital music sources have really improved and definitely made my life much more convenient. You should think about this for a little while and try to imagine life without all of these wonderful and amazing advancements because many of us tend to take these little things for granted far too often. We are seriously some very lucky and perhaps even spoiled individuals, there is no doubt about that at all. This is why more of us should truly be more thankful for all of the wonderful and sometimes even materialistic things that we now have in our lives. 

Our listening abilities have changed drastically throughout the years because of all of the great advancements and life has gotten much more convenient. Remember when we did not have remotes for our television sets and now if we lose our remote controls, many of us go into complete panic mode. God forbid we have to actually get up off of our couches and change the channels by ourselves, what has this world really come to anyway? It kind of makes me feel bad at times when I really give it a great deal of thought but it also makes me feel very lucky and fortunate as well. 

Digital music is something that is going to continuously improve throughout the years so all of us definitely have a great deal of cool things to look forward to experiencing over time. Life is more convenient now days and we need to start thinking about how very lucky we really are and perhaps attempt to try and stop taking so many wonderful and exciting things for granted, as many of us do on a daily basis. 

I would imagine that your grandparents, as well as your parents, would really get a thrill out of sitting down and discussing with you some things regarding these incredible advancements in technology and how the new digital music world has changed so many things for so many individuals. It would also be a good time to discuss some of the other things in life that have changed so drastically and made life so much more convenient for us and our children. 

Digital music is not going anywhere, in fact, it is all only going to keep getting bigger and better over the years and who knows what they will think of next?

The Tumblr Album (MP3)

http://disquiet.com/images/2012/2012.02/2012.02-solr1.png

Reviewed by Marc Weidenbaum http://disquiet.com

Sol Rezza’s free-download album makes expert personal use of the ubiquitous curatorial tool.

There is a techno heart somewhere deep in Sol Rezza‘s “The Existence of the Light Part III.” It’s in the wisp of a beat that patters along beneath everything else, a pixel tick tock. There’s a current of a beat above that, too, a more thorough pulse, one that fades in early and out late, that again has some semblance of techno to it. But the music is, after a brief moment at the start that suggests a clear genre slot, adventurous and spacious and adventurous in its spaciousness.

There’s plenty use of techno’s flavors, notably gurgling synth and those bauble beats, that bring Underworld to mind, that ability to have one foot in the rave and another in the gallery, both in the same pair of shoes.

This single track is, as its title suggests, part of a large-scale “album,” more a collection of images, still and moving, and text fragments as well as voluminous sounds that makes extremely creative use of the Tumblr publishing system’s inherent promise as a cabinet of curiosities. This screenshot below is just a narrow band of Rezza’s generous spectrum:

Track found via devinsarno.com. The large-scale project is housed at light.radio-arte.com, a subset of Rezza’s radio-arte.com webiste. She is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
