As an artist on a major record label, when you release a single, a whole slew of promoters are just waiting to run around town marketing and promoting your song.
As an artist who is independent...well...you realize that your promotion team is just yourself. Luckily, I have been blessed to have my single reviewed on many websites (you can view all my press here) and have made some radio headway. And last week, I was able to have my first in-studio performance that will be aired over the radio!
Meet Richard from East Nashville Radio. (eastnashvilleradio.com)
Richard was kind enough to feature my song on his show "Ladies Brunch" that airs every Sunday.
After he featured my song, he asked me if I would like to come into the studio and do a studio performance. So I said, "Heck yeah!" (I probably said it more eloquently...but that's what I was thinking!)
I have to admit, I was a little nervous to play by myself, without the crutch of my band. But luckily, I had just had a show, so I was well practiced! I played my single, "This House Is Haunted" (you can buy it on iTunes!!) and then he said, "ok, what's next?" I had no idea I would play more songs! I ended up playing four original songs and then we had an interview where I got to share some of my story.
My interview will air sometime in the next week or so, so keep up with me on twitter (click here), facebook (click here), or my personal website (click here), to keep tabs on all my on-goings. Also, I will have a radio interview with Rockin Country Radio that will air on 7/30. So turn up that radio!
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
