How I’m Promoting My Music This Month

I’m embarrassed.

I haven’t written a music promotion post since August, and not for lack of ideas. I’ve got plenty!

For starters, I want to share my results on Deezer via, take the new Audiokite reports for a spin, and review social media co-marketing platform CoPromote.

I’ve got a good excuse though – I’ve been completely overhauling the way I release music!


  1. A new website
  2. A new bio (professionally written by StoryAmp)
  3. A new photo shoot

All to prepare for a big launch in the next couple weeks. Stay tuned!

With that in mind, I don’t expect to find any serious writing time in the near future. And I’m tired of disappearing for months on end. So I’ve come up with a compromise:

Every month, I’ll send a short email telling you what I’m doing to promote my music.

    Hey friend! Commenting on this particular post is more random-ish than anything. That is, I wanted to say a sincere ‘thank you’ for what you do & put out to us little-guy artists. I haven’t really had any super success from, well, anything. A blog here & there, making a playlist/online station episode every once in a while with a new release. I sometimes allow myself pride in those small victories, that I’m doing what many in their existence will not. Though, often I feel mired in declines & rejection. But still, songwriting & singing exists as so purposeful to me, I SOLDIER ON! Anywho – that you share all of this, give me avenues to attempt & explore, you give me a CHANCE. My friend, it means the world. It’s f-ing ridiculous that you put all this time & effort into putting your experiences & advice out to us. And I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you.
    This may seem like an odd manner of ‘doing good in the world’ … but, to me, you are.
    My best to you.

      My pleasure Brian! Thanks for the kind words.

      I actually feel a little guilty, since I’ve been lucky to post an article every couple months. Rest assured I feel the same way about small victories in a sea of rejection. Only the most promising ideas get written about here, so you don’t hear about the majority of stuff that never pans out.
