Renegade Radio Interviews

newsreel time!!!


all i can say is HOLY HELL.

let me expand now. :) when i first started using reverb nation it *was* to find artists in a centralized gathering place for renegade. trouble was, it wasn't designed for that - at least that i could ever find. i would still go back and look but since it wasn't that easy, it wasn't my first place to stop. great site, great music - just hard to "harvest" for the stream and to help promote.

all that has changed now, and how. they have a new program we've been invited to and we simply setup an "event" to submit songs for airplay and the response has taken us by storm! 1500 submissions and over 1 mil reach overall. these are #'s we've never seen before and frankly, has put us back some in shifting through all the submissions. i'd like to thank everyone for asking us to check 'em out - we will. every single one. just glad i gave us 3 months.

now - if i could give some advice to people who want to "stand out" - be professional.

1) no out of focus shots of you, the band, lunch, or your pets please.

2) if you're submitting something that sounds like it was recorded in a bucket, understand - where can i play that?

3) listen to the station, read the submissions form. we're a rock station with varying degrees of it. while i dig americana we really don't have a show for it. or country. or rap/hip hop. or electronic, dance, disco, teen pop and i can go on.

4) if you've got the right target going on, have a professional look *AND* sound, the next best thing is - follow up with us, or anyone you're working with - and just check in.

if you're in dallas or long island areas - offer to work with us on co-promotional opportunities. we (and most promoters we know) want to work with people who are going to work also. like us on facebook and we also pay attention to that - and wow, it's taken off this week also. we're still going through the submissions and finding some really good stuff out there. i know on the icehouse i will be featuring nothing but reverbnation bands soon because there's a lot of great stuff out there. the promotional opportunity they've given us will benefit them because we can help provide a platform for expansion and sharing of audiences to the reverb bands. we can help promote locally and online. we get a direct line to their bands, advantage of a well known and respected name, and in the end - we get to hear the music and share it.

jemjem should be back soon and until then, keep rockin and reverbin and we'll see you at a show soon.
