Songwriter's Corner|

COMBO receives a “newsletter” from a group identifying itself as “Smashes” which advertises that it promotes music artists. Each newsletter has some good advice for musicians. We did try to check the group out via their website but information was short and scant (see below). However they did come up with this advice this past week so we decided to add it:

Short version, the lead record that should be getting the bulk of your marketing investment.

Why should you have one?

This is the digital era, chances are you’re releasing multiple singles, EPs, etc more frequently. With emerging artists traditionally working with limited financial resources, it becomes even more imperative to prioritize.

You don’t have the funds to make every record, the one.

Create a system that allows you to test your songs and focus from there on what to really push.

This also allows you to gain notoriety with fans and industry professionals who may have heard your best work.

Release as much as you want, but develop a clear strategy for promoting your music.
