The Making of a Record – Part 3 Getting People to Hear and Interact with Your Music
So you have an LP, EP or single that you want to release. The recording is done and you’re really excited to share your music with everyone. If you simply want to get it out and don’t really care whether 1, 100, 1,000 or 1-million people hear it; then go for it. It’s really easy to print a few CD copies of your record and/or have the major streaming services carry your music.
Before rushing the release to the world, it’s best to consider a few things first.
- Why are you releasing this record?
- What do you want to accomplish with this release?
- How large is your fan-base and is it big enough to help spread your music to new fans?
- Are you a relatively new or unknown artist hoping that this record will gain you new exposure and fans?
