We looked at a great article the other day that gives a detailed overview of how to get bloggers to write about your music.
And then, add to that, by reading this interview with Fred Pessaro, one of the editors of Brooklyn Vegan – one of the biggest music blogs that you might hope would cover your music.
It has background on how he came to have that role as well as insight as to how they choose what to cover. But, as a man right at the beating heart of a vibrant music scene, he also has some tips on how to get noticed generally.
I think that’s important. But one of the things I also think is important is just getting out there and playing. People who just get out there and play as much as they can do well. For instance, I book a lot of metal shows in the city, and I notice who plays a lot. Any band that plays a lot, whether it’s the first band, the second band or are in some other position on the bill probably has a strong work ethic. Any band that will play anywhere, at any time is probably a band that really wants to work. And it’s probably a band that, even if it’s not good now, will have the work ethic to be good later on.
