We tweet. We post on FaceBook and My Space. We write blogs, We"pay to play". We perform at open mic stages. We perform in small dives.Sometimes we play for free. Sometimes we get paid. We get to open for NAME ACTS for very little money. We record EP's and CD's. We release single digital songs on iTunes. We are striving musicians trying to get our beloved music, our little "babies" out there for the world to hear and hope that one day we can play for decent pay and actually quit our day jobs! We are Independent Artists. We dont have big record deals or signed contracts. We don't have executive producers with deep pockets. What we do have is HEART and SOUL and DESIRE to play music. If you've ever been to a concert to see a big name act remember the opening "no name" band. They are the guys in the little RV tagging along behind the giant 18 Wheeler trucks while the head line act sleeps in and flies to the next venue. With our amazing technology it doesn't take much to download a .99 cent song to support independent musicians. And it's even better when the people you support are your local homegrown musicians, who might even be a friend or family member! We have dreams! You are the ones who make it happen! I am an Independent Musician! Thank you for your support!
It's difficult in this market to promote your band and get local gigs that actually financially support bands. recently I started writing music for other artists and I am working on getting my compositions out to music promoters, movies/tv shows and a new reality TV show bassed on local talent in the San Diego area! I am excited at the prospects and I hope you will all partner with me to support local bands!
