All Musicians Are Music Fans First

One of the most helpful promotional tools a recording/performing artists can employ is to write about live shows they see. Yes! Write about other artists’ live performances to give some insight about what you see and hear.

When you give your audience a glimpse into what styles of music you spend time and money to see yourself, they will have a better understanding of what you appreciate in the live music arena.

It’s a very simple promotional tool. Put your name as a stamp of approval for other musicians and suddenly you become visible to an entirely new group of fans and music insiders. When you can verbalize in a short written document what it is you appreciate about someone else’s performance, you become a voice of authority and doors begin to open to totally different corridors of opportunity.

All musicians are music fans first. Show a different side of your musical prowess and promote other musicians in the process. We welcome any and all your thoughts at
