Things are pretty busy down at the studio at the moment with the new EP and a few other projects I’ve got on the go. One of those new projects is a seminar for musicians who want to learn more about promotion and publicity. I’ve got some amazing speakers onboard for the day so if your in Auckland on July 22nd then come over to Devonport and check it out. I’ll be recording the seminar and will be making it available as a podcast for all those who can’t make it along on the day.
“Promotions and publicity for independent musicians – The Depot Artspace presents a one day seminar aimed at independent musicians who want to learn how to promote their music in New Zealand. Speaking at the seminar will be a selected number of key local music industry figures who will share their experiences and answer your questions on topics including tour promotion; publicising your next album release and how to promote your music online effectively.”
