LETS MAKE MUSICIANS GREAT AGAIN!
not sure where I heard this Great thing from, might have been some political leader, but anyways, I am being an advocate for some, it aint an easy thing working peoples music and getting people in the places you think matter, but trying, having some success right now with a roots blues performer from Kitchener Ontario Sean Poluk and his NO MORE HATE release, it is cooking, great action on the various download platforms I use. looking good as djs radio music directors are loving his brand of roots blues and americana tunage.

There is that special something certain people can generate, especially if you surround yourself with good producers, musicians and let your music percolate and take the time to craft your style, its been 6 long years since I last promoted Sean, ( and 3 other projects of his) and he changed his direction completely laid down the electric guitar, walked away from his band and started learning a whole new way of doing things, picked up the resonator acoustic guitar, and spent years working it, and his writing craft and it is paying off in spades. massive downloads and airplay.

I remember helping the Harpoonist and Axe Murderer and then they took off and got a label and some decent reps stateside. dont need me anymore lol but look, I give direction, support and advocate the best I can, if they can get better and bigger help good for them I am just a small little dude in the Ocean of Slime and Goo out there

find your niche, be genuine, real and work your chops and ass off, be you, dont fake it, and copy someone else or try to mimic someone else, dont work that way,and if you do that then perhaps the Gods of music just may give you the nod and say, be blessed musician, and walk that way LOL

keep your dreams alive, its a long haul to be an overnight success!!

its about the music mostly, the timing and the relationships, but the music really is the thing, if it is good, and people relate to it, connect to it, and it resonates with the djs. then it takes care of itself, almost like the music promoting itself, kinda like priming the pump, then it goes organic ,that is the cool part. me, I just sort of try to do what I can, and find a home, if it crawls, good, walks better, runs, then you know its got legs

It has been my experience that the music is really not as important as we all think. There is so much bad music out there that is successful. What seems to me to be the defining element that makes artists successful is the ability to distribute and promote the music to the masses. This seems to be the advantage that the majors have over the indies. They have the ability to saturate the market with your music by using those big promo tools they have access to. But more important than that is the need to have someone (like Bryon) who has promo skills and believes in the artist enough to put the time and energy needed into getting the music out there. This is where I have failed and many artists like me have failed. Finding a real promo man that believes in your music is nearly impossible these days. They have the skills, knowledge and contacts that we don't have. If they think you are great, they will put time into working with you and your music. Finding these kinds of folks is nearly impossible. Most people I know that have them also have a big major putting money into their promotions. Here's a clue, these people do not work for free. Of course, you can learn to promote your self and eek out a modest living from it. I have done that and it has helped to supplement my retirement income. But I am not good at promotions. Never have been and never will be. I don't like it and I usually fail at things I don't like. Actually, I believe that there are many great musicians today. Some of them are here at IMP. Getting to the next level is not something that most of us know how to do. So, we just keep making music and hoping that someday we will find the holy grail of promotions and magically appear on all the charts that are relevant.
But, we all also know that this is pipe dream and that the odds are tremendously stack against us. Been in this music industry since I was 8 years old and I still don't have a firm grip on what it takes to reach all of my goals. Thanks for sharing your experience and wisdom Bryon. We all wish we had someone like you to help us.

Much Respect Brother,
Stoneman
