This week is the first of a two-part instalment on marketing. A tricky business where you can end up spending lots of time with little reward without having a bit of know-how and a plan. In this episode you’ll hear from a mix of artists and industry pros including Steven Page (Bare Naked Ladies), We Are Scientists, Maurice Hissink, The Sheepdogs, Zach Hangauer, She Drew the Gun and Kevin Brown. The good cause is the Dutch Clini Clowns. More info and show notes at www.acpgmusic.com/episode047
After discussing the record deal route last week, here we focus on releasing music yourself. It’s easier than ever to record music, but how do you release it? With things like mastering, distribution and licencing to consider, how do you get your music out there? You’ll hear from ex-label owner Zach Hangauer as well as top artists Laurel, State Champs, Jimmy Eat World and The Sheepdogs. The good cause is the aclu.org.
