PEACE is in my soul
Artist Review: Han Ho

The bio on this one is legitimately a personal biography. We get this artist’s life story in a few paragraphs. This includes where they were born (Vietnam), the number of brothers and sisters they have (10), and when the love of guitar was sparked (at 13 or 14). And we seem to have a country traveler here who’s seen and lived in so many great places, which I’m hoping has had influence on what we’re about to hear.

Highest selling digital artist of all time, Taylor Swift continues to make chart topping music and stay in the headlines. When it’s said and done, she might very well be considered the most successful artist of the 2010s. It’s only recently that she’s starting to attract negative reviews and tire out her youthful personality. But whether you love her or hate her, it’s undeniable that she’s done well for herself from both a musical and public relations perspective. Here’s a few takeaways of things up-and-coming artists can learn from the Reading, PA native.

Social media channels are a great way to interact with fans and grant exposure to potential listeners. Unfortunately, too many artists haphazardly throw up their pages and have no routine when posting, resulting in a weak online presence with low interaction levels.
Here are a few steps that artists can take when creating their channels to start off in the right direction.
Artist Review: Answer Back
This is a group of newer guys, trying to plan things out and on the brink of excitement in starting a career in music. They’ve got their first video made, and are planning a tour.
Now, here’s something interesting to read. I didn’t think I’d see a day when “90’d punk-rock and 2000 pop” were described as influences. Am I old enough for that statement to be valid? They also adapt based on the crowd, which is cool, but unnerving when you’re hoping for young bands who stick to their own voices.
Introducing Crowdfunding - Part 2
As promised the second part of the Introducing Crowd funding article is out! And, as promised, the differences between the different crowdfunding platforms, i.e Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Pledge Music, Sellaband and Musicraiser, are pointed out.
The thing is, I didn’t want to bore you with a long descriptive article, so I created a table.
I hope it can be useful and it can clear some of your doubts.
Keith Fellows - Artist Review
I went to college for Undergrad in Nashville – the Music City section of Nashville to be exact. Everyone there, and many people outside of the city, know that the additional nickname of “A Songwriter’s Town” is completely relevant. There are so many people there that do not perform on a regular basis, but are the only reasons we know any songs sung by the likes of Carrie Underwood or Lady Antebellum.
I open with pointing out folks like that because, from the sounds of his bio, Keith is one of those people in the background, writing the hits. He outright states, simply, that he wants someone out there to sing the songs he has to offer.
