Artist
Bio
Canadian artist Keith Mosfet has been on a journey of self discovery through traveling countries, and learning from new cultures. Now calling Amsterdam, Netherlands home. He is the definition of an “artist”. Using inspiration from impressionist oil paintings and combining his background in electronic engineering, Keith took on the challenge of writing, recording and mixing his whole catalog music from of his 2019 Album “Superficial Hypocrite”, his 2020 EP "Breathe", then continued to release singles throughout 2020/21.

On his newest 2021 single “I've got this feeling”, Keith shares a deeper, darker side. The single shares his experience with life long depression and dealing with the death of his brother. "Its an anthem for those of us with suicidal thoughts or have lost a loved one. Its about taking control of that pain and learning to grow with it and be content."

Clearly heard in Keith’s new single are his indie-rock influences like Beck, MGMT, Jack White and Cage the Elephant but with his own unique, psychedelic twist, using vocal effects and layering synthesizers to showcase his unique artistry. The powerful backup vocals are artist Heather Mazhar from Beams. Recording remotely in her home studio she was able to capture magic inspired from Merry Clayton of The Rolling Stones - Gimmie Shelter.

I've Got This Feeling by Keith Mosfet

Alan Cross

I love noisy stuff like this. The trashier the better. And here's hoping you'll do your part in bringing guitar rock back.

If there's money in the budget, come up with a YouTube video, even if it's just a lyric thing. That's really important.

Meanwhile, send me a high-quality MP3 and I'll see what I can do about getting this track featured on The Edge.  I'll need a three-line bio, too. Use alan@edge.ca.

Breathe by Keith Mosfet

Scott Cohen

Great track.  Keeping indie rock alive.  

Alan Cross

Nice. Very Beatles-ly 60s vibe. It's certainly the kind of thing that specific types of online radio might be interested in right now (Think XMU on SiriusXM) as well as campus radio.

So what's the plan?

If it's terrestrial radio, you'll need a story to sell before you even approach and independent plugger. That means more songs, social media stats, and a track record of playing live. Radio gets hundreds of unsolicited songs every week, so only the ones who have the best story (and make the most promotional noise) get heard. 

The best thing you can keep doing is to keep writing and recording. Only GREAT songs have a chance these days. The next best thing is to nurture the growth of your fanbase through social media. (Labels look at that sort of thing.) Determine who your audience is and use the appropriate platform. Facebook skews older. Snapchat and TikTok screw young and Twitter and Instagram are somewhere in the middle. YouTube is a must.

Meanwhile, make friends with as many bloggers as you can. Every one of them wants to be able to say they discovered The Next Cool Thing. 

Good luck!

Cool animated video and catchy song that fits well with the aesthetic. Has a strong indie vibe but with some elements of folk, garage rock and classic rock. Good unique sound. 

For starters, I would definitely include a short bio, description of the track and lyrics along with the links to your socials / places to hear more music. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to provide as much info as possible in a clear and concise manner and make it easy for anyone to hear more if they'd like. Also, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm to help with the release of your next single and/or album. 

Once the pandemic ends too, make sure you play live as much as possible as this music sounds like it would do great in a live setting or at least for now perhaps you can participate in online streams and live concerts. Best of luck!
