I would like to shine the spotlight on the many people who provide guidance, knowledge and marketing direction and tips for musicians. The people behind the websites and blogs that you visit. Who are they? What do they like? Get to know who these people that are sharing their experience with you. Take a minute to answer some questions. No real requirements, anyone who has a blog or website that provides marketing services and information for musicians is welcome to submit.

See who we have already profiled in the Marketers of Music.

One word of advice you would give a band that you just saw in a club?
Spend time after you set making connections with your fans. Hang out at the merch table. Be approachable. Smile. You’ll be amazed at the results!

Your first album?
I don’t remember my first album but my first 8-track was Heart’s Dog & Butterfly.

Digital because it’s simple and easy. I was an early adopter, buying music on iTunes before anyone I knew would do it.

Yes, I had one band back in high school. We were your typical early 80’s rock n roll garage band but never made it out of the garage!
