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!

    I'm an R&B singer/songwriter. I started recording my first album 3 years ago. I am very proud of my work, and I feel that I've come a long way in this short amount of time. Check me out, and keep up with me on twitter. @missarethahenry


  2. SMBB says:

    Starved Man and the Begging Beggar is a two piece ambient rock project created by Matthew Flaherty and David Robinson.

    We started way back in 2006 recording a few very low quality tracks. SMBB was almost forgotten about until early 2011 when we decided to restart the project with better equipment and take it a little more seriously.

    Our 5 track EP, Have You Ever Been So Angry You Kicked A Flower? is due for release on the 5th of December 2011.


    Thank you.

  3. 'Foreign Sketches' is the first draft on the selected sketches. Foreign by nature, as is mine, and presented in their rawest form. Blown wide open, letting the stories, emotions, sensations, live through a voice and a guitar.
    Their blueprints are constantly mutating themselves, choosing new friends, new sounds... But that will be then. This is now.

  5. Atomic Fate says:

    Emerging from the pits of Holy Hell, Atomic Fate climbed to the top of the metal scene in 2008 with their debut album, Welcome To Holy Hell. The band's latest album, This Is Only The Beginning, welds earth-shattering vocals, gnashing guitar, pummeling bass, and maniacal drums to fabricate a record brimming with pulse-pounding scorchers. With standout tracks like "Step Into The Ring," look for Atomic Fate to be a major part in the metal landscape for years to come. Keep it Metal... Very Metal ! ! !

    I was with my friends having a Friday night drink at Cargo in Shoreditch, London last Sunday. And I heard a really cool live band called Pharaohs From The Grave.

  11. Fronted by award-winning songwriter Hillary Reynolds, this band is a pinnacle of innovation in today's pop music. The powerhouse foursome makes its trademark sound by fusing tight vocal harmonies, the flash & polish of cutting-edge production technique, and authentic instruments for a diversity of sound unachievable in other realms. HRB are 100% Berklee College of Music alum, with diverse talents in songwriting, live performance, orchestration, and production, just to get started.

    The social media strategies are only viable if we all work together, sharing followings and cross-promoting each other. It's great to participate in things like this!

    We are Flight Of Arrows, a four piece alternative rock band based in Preston and Sheffield.

    We have been together since early 2011 but spent the first 6 months writing and rehearsing before recording 5 new songs and playing our first gigs in and around Preston during Summer 2011. We have been well received building a strong local fan base, drawing large crowds to our local venues already having supported James Walsh, All The Young and Paris Riots in the last six months.

    We have generated interest from the London music industry and look forward to 2012 with great anticipation. We have received great support and air play from local radio and we began 2012 with a live session on Radio Lancs BBC Introducing show in January. We also aim to expand our fan base beyond Lancashire into our other base in Sheffield and beyond. We have a couple of festivals lined up for the summer.

    We have just recorded two more songs to add to our existing collection, all of which can be heard here;

    and our official web site here;

    Please have a look and listen. We would appreciate any comments.

    Many thanks

  31. Lauren says:

    Hey Jenny and all other music lovers,
    I just figured I would come here and try and promote my friend's band (I love music, but am not able to do anything musically, unfortunately).

    Ohio indie band Woodson manages to mix folk, americana, and rock all into breathtakingly beautiful and hauntingly delicious music. With roots in the once great steel town of Youngstown, Ohio, Woodson draws so much inspiration from the environment in the Midwest. Said to sound like Kevin Devine and Brand New, Woodson’s music can make you feel disappointment, heartbreak, anger and a sense of freedom all in one sitting.

    Please feel free to check them out:

    Thanks all, and keep rocking!

  37. Hello Luvs,

    Come along on The Marmalade Army’s sophomore effort “All Tomorrow’s Yesterdays” and get “unstuck” in time. Is it 1962 or 1974? You may easily be lost anywhere in between as the lovable lads celebrate long hair, loud guitars and L-O-V-E! Slide over the hood and climb through the window as we take a sonic ride in the backseat of their musical Trans Am. Several years in the works, they have dusted off their wah wahs and proceeded to kick out the jellies and jams with a “brand-old” collection of ditties guaranteed to perm your hair and snap your underpants. Strap in, turn up and hang loose with the music scene’s most confused rock combo this side of the Way Out City Limits!

    Available at CD Baby, itunes, Amazon, etc.
