These are recent stories of other bands I focused my new media scouting efforts on. Take a look at life inside the music industry…
# I began pursuing/posted unsigned Virginia artist Ross Copperman two years ago on June 10, 2004. He only just signed with Sony-BMG imprint Phonogenic Records (Natasha Bedingfield’s label) recently. Ross sent an email to me stating:
I just wanted to thank you personally because I have now been contacted by two A&R reps at Columbia records and one at RCA records. They have all been referred to me through your website…
Copperman was October 10, 2006 UK iTunes Single of the Week – most downloaded single of the week ever beating out former picks James Morrison, Orson and Paulo Nutini.
# Tyler Read, who signed to major label Immortal Records/RED, wrote me:
Since you featured us on your website we’ve found management and an entertainment attorney out of a big firm in new york…I just wanted to drop you a quick line thanking you for the spot on your sight. I can’t express enough how greatly appreciative we are or how much exposure we’ve gotten within the past two days because of your help! –Josh Johnson and Jeb Whitley of Tyler Read, September 3, 2003
# Singer J.R. from the newly signed Lizard King Records/Warner act Greater Good wrote me a recent thank you letter regarding his previous band:
Without your help…The Broadcast would have never got any recognition and my career would have never got off the ground. So anyway it was a long string of events but you started it and I have always appreciated it very much.
