Why your fans should always be Number 1!
Blog by Mark Knight - Right Chord Music under Artist Managers, Media, Recording & Production, Selling & Distributing Your Music
As an unsigned, or self released artist it can feel like you have all the time in the world. There is no time pressure from a label or publisher to record, the only time pressures are the ones you put on yourself, or so it seems.
It’s 2 years since your last release, finally you have enough material and enough money to record the perfect album. You have attracted a named producer and the record is sounding great. But your fans have deserted you and have lost interest, you have no money to promote the record to radio or the music press. The release date edges ever closer, labels aren’t interested in releasing it because they haven’t seen any signs of life or fan engagement. The album finally comes out, but by then it’s too late, the music press have moved on to the next hot new thing.
