Basic and Advanced Marketing Strategies for Recording Artists in Popular Commercial Music
My involvement with several recording artists (bands and solo performers) has benefited them in many ways. My background in marketing and business is applied to assisting those pursuing (or investigating the possibility of) a career in popular music as a recording/performing act.
In 2011, I booked a young singer-songwriter on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Another of my young proteges is currently on the verge of a major breakthrough in Nashville. My experience includes advancing the careers of select singer-songwriters and bands and assisting them with planning their career moves, connecting them with influential people, introducing them to the best local/regional venues (for gigs), helping them map out short-term and long-term goals, and educating them on what the recording industry executives look for and require from artists seeking recording and management contracts.
My direct, no-nonsense approach is results-driven. That means I provide simple, step-by-step goals and checklists for the artists to consider. We will dialogue and weigh the various paths and tailor a game plan/strategy that works for the unique individual that is each artist.
I specialize in talent scouting of young singers, but can aid anyone striving to make a serious run at a career as a recording artist in Popular Music today. There are specific accomplishments the music executives demand, and I can help outline what you need to do before anyone in he industry will take you seriously. I also can help protect you from being duped by the phonies who want to take your money without actually helping you.
This is a passion of mine. I like helping those who work hard to pursue their sincere ambitions. I admire musicians and feel I can play a vital role in helping to identify your strengths, weaknesses and potential as a recording artist or song writer. We work in unison to advance your career much more rapidly than those who try to carve out a niche on their own, without proper mentoring. My goal is to help you move forward faster. Time is not on our side, as the industry prefers to invest in younger artists.
