DIY Band Promotion


A few years ago before the internet was as BIG as it is now, I remember thinking about all the bands that were out there playing music that I had never heard of. Bands that I would never hear. I felt out of control.

Sure, there were bands that I loved listening to on mainstream radio and seeing play live in my area, but I was fully aware of the fact that there was no way that I was even getting a fraction of what was really going on musically around the country - or the world for that matter.

Fast forward to the present, and luckily the internet has been a key to helping solve my quandary. I can now easily access bands' music online, however, the amount of music seems infinite and overwhelming at times, which can also hinder the process of discovering new bands.

I started because I wanted a place online where I could help myself and others discover new music and to spread the GOOD word about bands, musicians and artists - established and new. Signed and unsigned. All genres. Everywhere. I love receiving emails from bands and artists wanting to share their music. I also enjoy publishing their information on

There has been a large volume of news, music and review requests coming into my inbox as of late, and it frustrates me that I can't publish all of it, as there's only one me here, and only so many hours in the day.

At this point, my solution to this problem is to ask bands, musicians and artists to please leave a comment (not too long) with information about your music along with a couple links, so that readers can learn about you, listen to you - and hopefully buy your music.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

  18. "The Dream of the Southern Seas"


    It is with the greatest amount of excitement that I write to you today to announce the official release of my new music album entitled, "The Dream of the Southern Seas".

    This album is a love-child of my fascination with the sounds of a nylon string guitar and my passion for making music. It took nearly a year to compose, arrange, record, mix and master it in my home studio in Los Angeles, CA.

    I dedicate this album to my father - an accomplished architect, artist, and adventurer who's dream of sailing the Southern Seas was never fulfilled.

    For that, and because I am not a professional musician, I pledge to donate the proceedings of this album to the TopSail Youth Program of Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) a non-profit organization that provides educational, character-building and sail-training adventures for children on their tall-ships, based in San Pedro Harbor, LA.

    With that, I would like to extend an invitation to you to sample the album at where you can listen to the music or for a small donation download either the entire album and burn a high-def CD, or download just individual songs for your iPod.

    Your support and generosity are deeply appreciated and mean the world to me. I hope you truly enjoy this album, and I look forward to hearing back from you. Cheers !


    P.S. If you like the music, please spread the word among you friends and family. I will be so very grateful ! If you donate $15 or more, I will send you a signed original CD
