So, I’ve been wanting to get in on the other side of music journalism for a while now. I’ve been quite used to working with press persons and teams for a few years, but I want to know if I can be successful at the other side–reaching out to bloggers, magazine editors, podcasters, etc. to get acts coverage. Rather than start with a band who needs someone experienced right out of the gate, I’m teaming up with a band with members I am close friends with, a band that has barely started even being a band.
I don’t want to spill the beans just yet as there are some finalizations that need to be made with the band and their music, but I can tell you it’s going to rock, and I can’t wait to help get them out into the world with it. They’re great dudes who just want to rock ‘n’ roll, and that’s just what they’re dead-set on doing.
Perhaps in the future once I sort of get the hang of it I’ll take on doing press outreach for other bands so feel free to shoot me an e-mail about this stuff, especially if you’re a contributor to a music blog/magazine/podcast/etc.!
