Why Your Likes And Follows Don’t Matter with Wade Sutton | WHRH 052 5

RocketToTheStars.com’s Wade Sutton chats with me about social media, websites, and capturing email leads for your band.

Ramblings of a Burnt Out Musician with a Shitty Promotion 11

I don’t have anything really ground-breaking to say today. This is more of a journal entry for what I’ve been up to with my band. I ordered t-shirts, a vinyl banner backdrop, and stickers for the upcoming show. I expect I won’t recoup any of the money. For the stickers […]
