Praying For More Pain by Kingfisher

Alan Cross

Love this! Completely radio-ready as far as I'm concerned. What you'll need now is a publicist to get the word out. You need some help to get this in front of music directors and programmers. Don't forget to target college radio, too.

Tell you what: I'll share this with my social networks but if you send me a high-quality audio file along with a basic three-line bio, I'll spread this around some of my contacts. Use alan@alancross.ca

My Fire Inside by Kingfisher

Alan Cross

Another good one! I like the video, too. You can do a lot with everyday stuff, can't you? 

Let me circulate this among some people. Good luck--and keep me posted, okay?

Another good one from you guys. This is totally ready for the world. When the album comes out, makes sure you send me a link. Also drop me an MP3 and a bio so I can try to find a spot for this. Use alan@alancross.ca again.

Another good one. Let me see what I can do about getting one of my writers to pick this for a feature this week or next.

Send along a link to the video and another three-line bio to alan@edge.ca

Tell you what: Send me a high-quality MP3 (alan@edge.ca) along with a three-line bio and I'll make you guys one of my Undiscovered Gems of the Week. That'll get you a spin on The Edge on an upcoming Wednesday. Deal?

I like it. Nice and tight, solid rhythm section, plenty of punk rock "whoaoos."

Send me a high-quality MP3 and a three-line bio and I'll see what I can do about getting you a feature play on 102.1 The Edge/Toronto. Use alan@edge.ca for fastest service.

Bow Down by In Heat

Charlie Ashcroft

Well done on producing a pulsating slice of punk infused energy! Great track. In terms of radio opportunities over here in the UK, it’d be worth approaching the likes of Alex Baker (regular presenter on Kerrang Radio) and Jack Saunders (new music presenter on the BBC, primarily on Radio 1). It’d also be worth getting in touch with Alyx Holcombe - her show Alyx Plays Punk has a decent following over here too.

Alan Cross

More solid stuff. Thanks for keeping me posted on new material. God knows we need more of this kind of music these days: old-school, balls-to-the-wall rock'n'roll. And when we finally get back to live shows, this track is gonna be a killer.

Keep it up--and I'll share this on my social networks. That'll get to about 100,000 people. Lemme know what else comes up.

Solid, hard-rocking jam that definitely made me nostalgic for the glory days of GnR, Motley Crue, etc. The artwork and logo are fantastic too and represent this sound very well. Nice job. 

In terms of promotion, I would start by suggesting that you include lyrics, cleanup the bio so it's more about the band and less about the lineup as no one who reads this knows anything about the lineup. I'd also suggest you inlcude links to hear more music / your social media in your Fluence submission so people can find out more about you. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture and find more of your music if they're interested.

If you're not already, 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 that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Also, consider making a music video or live video for this track or any upcoming singles. Lastly, make sure you have a strong social media presence and unique aesthetic as this will help you draw in listeners and hopefully stand out amongst a sea of performers. 

Best of luck!

Okay. I like it a lot. Send me a high-quality MP3 to alan@alancross.ca and I'll give this a spin on The Edge in the coming weeks. Deal?
