For Immediate Release: Nov 28, 2012 – A new “ultimate” independent musician’s marketing guide has been released with the intention of “cleaning up the music promotion game”; the newly released “Your Band Is A Virus – Expanded Edition” by Independent Music Promotions (www.indepedendentmusicpromotions.com) founder James Moore is available now at all digital outlets. A follow up to the popular 2010 book, the new expanded edition is roughly double the size of it’s predecessor, boasting hundreds of new promotion tactics aimed at helping independent artists become their own publicists.
“The intention of the book is to completely wipe out many of the misconceptions musicians have when it comes to music marketing. I’m a music promoter without a fancy title. This book wasn’t written by an entertainment lawyer or a label CEO. I’m DIY and I write about what has worked for me over the last few years, and many of the ideas I’m happy to say just don’t get talked about anywhere else. It’s all straight talk and actionable advice, and I feel it’s the most valuable music promotion book available today. Musicians have the most trouble and confusion about generating press, so that’s what I mainly focus on. There’s a lot of misinformation and fantasy realities out there, so the intention is to inspire and bring some clarity to artists” says Moore.
“Your Band Is A Virus – Expanded Edition” covers everything from properly reaching out to the music media and generating high amounts of reviews to building a freelance army, promoting music videos, hosting remix contests, embracing the free music model and embracing outsourcing to move your band forward as a business. Also, the book includes an industry insiders interview series featuring legendary producer Stuart Epps (Led Zeppelin, Elton John), HIP Video Promo CEO Andy Gesner (HIP has worked with Johnny Cash, Bon Iver, Pearl Jam, Of Montreal), Justin Wayne of the Justin Wayne show, Katie O’Halloran of Ithinkiloveit.com and Crystal Lee of Vandala Concepts Magazine (www.vandalaconcepts.com).
