NEW STORE ADDED - TIDAL

You’ve probably heard a lot of talk recently about a newly launched music streaming service called TIDAL, which offers: * high-fidelity sound quality (yes, hi-fi streaming) * high-def music videos, and… * curated editorial content Oh, and it’s also partially owed by Jay Z, who threw a launch party for TIDAL with appearances by Madonna, Alicia Keys, Kanye, and lots of other big names. Subscribers can access TIDAL’s catalog in high-fidelity for $19.99/month. There’s also a $9.99/month tier for subscribers who don’t need the high-quality audio. My albums were originally delivered to Wimp music - and Wimp has now been aquired and replaced with "TIDAL" . As all of my previous MP3's were recorded in Hi-Def 320 Kbps audio - These tracks have been added to Tidals Store .

Rob Mazurek Music .Com

Hey guys just a quick note that some of you may be unaware of my other website - www.robmazurekmusic.com - The site is operational -but technically still under re-construction as ive been really busy doing other things (Multitasking as always..lol) .. but hope to have it a bit more updated and organized over the next few weeks

Indie Artists and the Essentials of Promotiom

If you're a musician - You know the importance of not only creating great Tracks - but once the album is done - the impotance of promoting You're new album or song . I'll never forget that feeling when promoting my first album - there is so real way to describe that feeling of seeing your work on websites like Guitar world, Guitar player, Rolling Stone , MTV ,VH1 , TMZ , and countless other mainstream music websites alongside major artists in the Biz . The feedback from fans is also a really awesome feeling as well - This is why I always encourage new artists maybe just putting out their first album to remain confident as many believe indies have no hopes of competeing with the major players in the music industry and although this may be true in some cases - the playing field over the years has been levelled quite a bit - whereas the majors now look to indie artists to sign New Talent to labels ....whether you wish to make that transition is a personal choice and major committment - either way - whether you go to the majors or decide to remain indie ....you are your own best promotional Tool - having good business skills these days is just as important to artists as being able to create the music itself ! ....Just my two cents I wanted to pass along ! ....Have a Great week !

Added my Music to Zvooq-Russia,Ukraine, etc

Sorry Guys -Lagging way behind in responses.

Hey Want to apologize to the fans and fellow musicians alike - Ive been really busy lately multitasking daily and trying to keep up with a variety of things at once - so im way behind in responding to mails ,comments, and have been too busy to check out fellow musicians pages ...but I will slowly try to get around to catching up on some things a bit at a time - . I hope you're all having a Great Week so far !!!

Cadillac Rambler

I threw this track together because Ive been a huge fan of a lot of Rock Groups growing up and one of them was always the Rolling Stones - so I loosely based this tune on a Stones /Keith Richards type Rythym Vibe and I overdubbed it with some light slide guitar work just to give it a slightly more bluesly laid back feel to it. Hope you enjoy the stream sample here.
