How To Build An Engaging Fan Base

Growing an engaging and interactive fan base is tough… yet possible. Before even looking to start locating your fan base, you might be asking yourself questions such as: “How do the professionals and influencers build their fan bases? and should I be copying them?” “Social media is becoming clogged up with artists sharing their stuff, how will I ever stand out?” “I’ve got some great music, why is nobody listening?” To begin you may need to ask yourself this…  “What makes a fan base engaging or interactive?”  Of course, there are multiple answers… First of all, people could turn...

Music Review – “You’re Gonna Get Lucky” by Jim McGee and Mandy Johnson

From the album – The Lion And The Fox You’re Gonna Get Lucky is a beautiful, acoustic-style track about finding peace in with each other through exposing yourself as you really are.

The production quality...

Music Review – “Wiped Out” by Strange Theories

“Wiped Out” Wiped Out by Strange Theories is a track that has been labelled purely and simply as “Rock”. Although this is absolutely correct, I’ve mentioned the importance of further narrowing down your musical genre in another one of my previous blogs.

Music Review – “Morning” by After Alice

Youtube Facebook Twitter Instagram       “Morning” from the Memories album Instantly, you can hear 90s grunge! They’re quickly apparent in After Alice‘s Morning, the first track from their Memories album. I can certainly hear the Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder influences, which is a breath of fresh air in our ever-changing industry of Rock Music! Of course, the style of the vocalist doesn’t sound completely the same as the likes of Pearl Jam. From what I can hear, it’s a really great sounding, natural voice. By “natural”, I mean it sounds as though there are very few effects on the lead vocals and yet they...
