IT DOESN’T END WHEN WE’RE DONE WITH THE RECORD…

Something happened recently. I finished an incredibly badass record with one of my favorite artists I’ve ever worked with. Synthpop galoreee. Arpeggiators everywhere. Vocal Samples. THE WORKS. It was done. Songs were mastered. Backing tracks for the live shows / upcoming tour were made. Now comes… the release.

It went like this.

I was waiting. They were waiting. I would wait more… they would wait more… and then - after 4 months. I was done waiting, dude. What the hell was going on?

I had to call them up. This was getting ridiculous. When’s the song coming out?! It’s clearly FIRE.

THE PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THE MUSIC!

Standing there in my studio, looking at the reflection of my nervous face on the monitor… I pressed dial. Seconds felt like minutes long - I realized. “Holy shit. I am my Jewish mother’s son… I am calling them - to nag?! Is this me?! Who AM —-”

Artist: “….Hhhheeeeeeyyyy Mark!”

Me: “YO!! What’s the hold up? When’s it dropping? You ok?”

Artist: “Mark - I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to put out the song yet… I’m getting my release strategy together… but I just feel so fucking lost. This song sounds incredible, the best we’ve ever made. But I don’t want to put it out for nobody to listen to it! How the hell do I get on blogs?! How do I get it in playlists? I FEEL LIKE A LOSERRRR DUDEEEE!”

Me: “Ohhh. That’s all it is? OK. BRB.”

 

INTRODUCING…

THE INDIE PR BUNDLE is literally everything you need to run a badass PR Campaign after we’re done with production. It is complimentary to every artist I produce, sent when we begin working together.

Basically, if you’re not ready to hire a PR Agent, or you’re just the type to hustle yourself. Here is the know how, industry insight, and contact information to get you where you want to, and should be.

I believe in a strong music industry filled with competent, pro-active independent artists. It’s literally my mission to help any artist I work with get to the point that they see themselves stepping to.

To me that is what a producer does in 2018.

The INDIE PR BUNDLE consists of contact information for over 6,000 Music Journalists, Playlisters, and Corporate Contacts.

Yeah.

It also includes a 30-Page Book I wrote called “RELEASE STRATEGY” covering all the best practices, and step-by-step approach to running your own PR Campaign.

mega yeah.

All of the contact information is available exclusively to the artists I produce and develop - as it requires one-on-one advice depending on the project. *It is not, and will not be for sale.*

However, the knowledge and insight in the book? I felt compelled to give to everyone. Because everyone needs to know these things. Whether or not someone works with me (I am typically booked solid) I wanted to give back and at least give everyone a fighting chance to move forward in their artist career - for free.

yeah. It will always be free af.

SO - if you’re thinking to yourself:

“HOLY SHIT. MARK THIS IS SO COOL.”

I would have to agree with you. Wish I had it earlier on. So, I’m glad to help everyone out as much as I can, as well as always help the artists I work with reach their full potential artistically, and in the industry.

RELEASE STRATEGY is the flagship 30-Page ebook I wrote.

After talking to accomplished PR agents, label reps, artists touring internationally, artists I’ve toured with, and other industry professionals I know - I spent a shit ton of time organizing all of these processes and to-dos into a simple, incredibly detailed, and effective resource containing the best practices to running a proper PR Campaign. This in turn will give you real, no bull-shit insight to get your songs into Publications, Playlists, and more. The book is divided into 3 sections.

Mentality, What You Need, and The Playbook.

***FREE FOR EVERYONE***

 

ALONG WITH “RELEASE STRATEGY”

ARtists i produce also receive:

BLOG CONTACTS is exactly that.

It’s a music journalist database. Each journalist has their publication, social handles, e-mail, website, location, genre, preferred way of pitching to them, First & Last name, position at publication, anything you could think of (that is not inherently creepy for them.) In an organized Excel File so you can scroll through and study up - or upload into a mailing list software to blast out.

I’ve compiled over 4,000 for the sake of helping the artists I produce - pretty damn impressive I KNOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

PLAYLIST DIRECTORY

This is a playlist directory covering much of Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, etc. Majority independent playlists, with a few direct to Spotify Official Playlist submission protocols.

Streaming is an ever changing world, but I (and my team) have put the time aside (literally booked out days) to update these lists every 3-6 months depending on the landscape of the streaming world. Giving artists I work with the best possible shot to land on these playlists is crucial. So, we put in the work to make sure they’re taken care of.

That’s ‘cuz it is. I’ll give you some quotes from some of my favorite artists that I work with who’ve used all of this:

“It works.” - Drake Margolnick of Flagship

“It really works.” - Lute

“It really really works.” - Dominique

“It really really really fuckin’ works.” - King Klio

Ultimately, I want every artist I work with to be well equipped and achieve their goals, from songwriting, to production, to marketing, to personal life - that’s simply all I give a shit about.

Furthermore, I want everyone in this industry to only be held back by their musicianship and artistry. There should be no reason at all why any of this knowledge should ever be secret. Transparency is v’dope. And that is the world I want artists to live in one day.

Complete independence, and ability to build their own career, on their own terms.

If you are an artist I am currently producing, the INDIE PR BUNDLE will be available to you to download and keep on file in our Private Chat Application where we discuss the record.

If we don’t work together, download the 30-Page RELEASE STRATEGY book completely free below.

It will always be free af. Just trying to give back. Fill it out, and you’ll get it in your email.

It might take a minute or 2 to send to ya’.
