Hi all just wanted to know your thoughts on artists promoting to artists. Does it make sense? It seems that alot of these sites like reverb nation, soundcloud, myspace and the likes are a lot of us unsigned artists promoting to other unsigned artists. I think that our sites are visited by more artists, tracks listened to by artists and ratings normally show artists as being the biggest fans (on my sites anyway). So are we just being nosey to see what other artists have? Are we adding other artists because we know they understand what we are trying to do and the effort it takes, so we know they will take 5 out to listen? Are we doing it to network or it this just how it is and why most are unsigned? Who knows. Feel free to comment your views
Its hard as an artist when you hear someone say they dont like one of your songs - well we can please everone so take it with a pinch of salt and find out why. If it makes sense you have learned something new. If not then disregard it. Either way - dont be afraid of criticism or to criticise.
