A real blog for independent musicians - The Talent Meets Potential Project. 

http://talentmeetspotential.tumblr.com/

I have created a group on soundcloud where most of the featured songs come from. I had no idea that it would have 1600 submissions and almost 800 members after I haven’t posted for 2 months. The problem is I don’t have many followers - so if you could help spread the word so that I can provide a true platform for independent artists that deserve the exposure to get heard!

The soundcloud group can be found here - https://soundcloud.com/groups/indie-indie-indie

 

I better get to it - I will keep it updated regularly from now on!

MusikFly: Makes it Easy to Submit and Receive Music

As a musician it is extremely important for your music to be heard by the right people. As a blogger, it is extremely important to discover artists and help them gain publicity as efficiently as possible. I recently launched a service, Musikfly that helps both the musician and blogger to acheive these goals. Right now there are limited options out there for music submissions. Musikfly offers a simple submission platform that can be embedded into a blogger’s site and used in place of email for their submissions. So when a musician goes to their favorite blog and wants to submit their music, they just click a link, connect to their soundcloud or youtube, and add the songs they want to submit. Then once sumbitted, instead of having a clogged email inbox, the blogger has a clean filtered submission feed where they can listen to the songs and learn about the artists all on the same page.

Do You Really Need A Music Review?

Should you really go through the trouble of setting up a press kit, finding good music blogs, and submitting your music for a (Possibly negative) review?  The answer is a big, giant … maybe.  It all depends on the kind of music promotion you’re seeking.  So many artists will spend untold hours blindly sending EPKs out to hundreds of music blogs thinking that the resulting publicity will cause their popularity and career to skyrocket.  It’s a bit naive. (Some might call it stupid)  The reality is that the vast majority of music reviewing websites have a dedicated, but extremely small readership.  Most of the traffic to these sites comes from other musicians looking to promote their own music, and other music industry professionals. Simply sending all your music out will not by itself do much to benefit you, even if you are reviewed by several blogs.
