Lisa Renae has that X factor that all performers, but especially singers aspire to. She and E-motion captivated Tampa and FL audiences at the turn of the century with "Love of My Life" and "Tell Me". I know because I engineered 25 mix CD's from DJ's back then and they all contained one or the other song, and were also featured on weekend mix / mash-ups, before I even knew they were a local concern ... read more

"So You wanna be a Rock Star, eh?" by: Glenn Roberts 1998 The music industry is not what it was pre-napster and ITunes. It is simply a fact of life. One of the last bands to get a pre-napster record deal would most likely be Green Day. Other bands now have to cave to the so-called "360" deal, which simply put includes downloads, streaming, merchandise, and of course Cd's as they do continue to exist, for how long is anyone's guess.Therefore, to have any chance of being signed you need to a) hire a known and trusted (by Label Executives) in LA, New York, or Nashville, perhaps even an entertainment lawyer to shop your demo CD (expensive and time-consuming that process certainly is)) b) be a producer / musician signed with a major publisher. This avenue is more difficult, because they don't accept unsolicited works for fear of litigation) or c) build a following on internet sites such as Reverbnation, ITunes, Soundcloud, Spotify, and the like to generate a high visibility of your brand, it's biography, musical style and the like. INCREASINGLY IMPORTANTLY...having your own commercial website which not only will allow labels, managers, agents, and publishers to see your "online advertisement" of your art (which is a visual work of art in and of itself) with a simple email or click of the mouse. Remember, the site must catch them with a beautiful design, but ultimately, it's your music, image, and most importantly, brand with the goal of the highest rank compared to the competitive bands online. Your rank on your social media sites earned by gigs, word of mouth, college / internet plays of your best single , and merchandise sales that will determine your revenue stream and online "footprint", as it were. It is those bands that best integrate your social media, upcoming gigs, blogs, in a word: message that consolidate all your online promotional efforts thus far into an actual .com professional musician band site. Then you can let the professional Label machinery with there advertising and marketing machinery will begin in earnest on your behalf. Lastly, it's an old adage but for a good reason, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING without counsel or out of desperation. The stories are in the multitude of bands signing there career away on cocktail napkins, and now more then ever before it is necessary, whether you wish to or not, to treat your artistic venture as a business one. It is in my opinion The Golden Rule...Best Wishes Glenn Roberts firstname.lastname@example.org 727-392-9222
