Over the years I've been very lucky that the people who come to my shows are often folks I relate to on a personal level. Not always, but often. I dig connecting with other oddballs, bohemians or "fish out of water". My community does feel like a weird and fun rock n' roll family. This is a note for that family, my inner circle.
Please note I'm not selling anything here, I’m just writing to ask for your ideas in launching this new album, Life Upside Down, with me.
This album was made with a minimalist and analog approach...it was recorded to tape with just me and my drummer Matt. Because this record was made so differently than previous ones, I want to market it differently as well.
Rather than working with a marketing team of industry pros who may not have a "heart connection" to the project, I want to market this album grassroots and work with those who feel most connected to the project...ideally, you :)
This is the album I've been trying to make for years, and now I want it to reach as many people as possible.
I’d like to team up with you in getting the album into communities and outlets that would benefit from it. If you have a podcast, work in radio (or have a friend who does), run a big blog, or are connected to an influencer who would love this album, let me know by emailing LifeUpsideDownAlbum@gmail.com Please include...
- The community or media outlet
- your relationship to the community or media outlet
- size of community/number of readers
- how you'd like to help (specifically :)
I’m open to anything, of course, but ideally I'd like to focus on outlets that will move the needle.
If you have ideas, suggestions, or better, have access to a large audience of your own, I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks friends. Good times ahead,
