Even if it's the greatest song ever written and recorded, it will not get played on radio unless you have something going on. Are you pulling serious numbers to your live shows? Do you have a ton of followers with LOTS of engagement (Likes, comments, retweets) on your social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter? What do you have going on? You have to build it first. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter how good the music is if no one cares about it. So get people to care.
Put it on SoundCloud and network withthin soundcloud. Comment on others' channels. Collaborate with other soundcloud users. Submit to music blogs (found on http://hypem.com ) create a music video and get it on YouTube and Facebook and promote it.
You have to build a buzz first. Anywhere: YouTube, SoundCloud, Blogs, Facebook, Live. Somewhere.
Hi, Ari. New fan from Northwest BC Canada! Great work, man.
What about rural communities? Would you say exodus is always the answer? There's a few old dance/sports halls around here but they're purely rental based and none of them are music specific. Few bars as well. Would it be weird to ask a coffee shop owner to host an event if we play loud raucous old-school rock?
Surely The Orchard are up there somewhere?
