i'm a gospel music artist which company would you suggest for this type of music for promotion and distribution
Hi Dennis, sorry for the delay, just saw this. CD Baby, DIstroKid or Tunecore are all fine options and they work with all genres of music. Have you explored indie gospel labels? Pick your favorite 10 (independent) gospel records of the past 5 years and see which labels they are with. You can find this information on Wikipedia, AllMusic.com or their Facebook Page. If they are independent (not tied to the Big 3 Majors, Universal, Warner or Sony), it may be worth talking to them about potentially working together. Talk to the bands first on the indie labels and ask them what their experience has been with them. If the music is solid, an indie label that specializes in gospel would have the best understanding of how to promote you.
How exactly should a band in NYC go about building an audience of fans? Sure they spread can spread their shows once a month, but that leaves them with only 12 possible dates in a year for fans to catch them live. Most of those fans in the initial stages are friends.
Thanks for answering these. It means a lot coming from someone of your experience.
