It seems to be that your group CHOUt, & Small white have a pretty good name for themselves. & I was wondering if you could do some promoting for my group. I know this seems silly, & desperate, but we are. We've been trying for years to get signed & nothing seems to work.
Any promoting you can do would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
No, I am by no means signed. Good Enough Records is my cd-r label that I 'release' mine and my friends' stuff on for fun, not profit. Chout is what I call my own 'one man band' (not solo!) recordings.
Small White are a relatively new band (still under a year old). Though I guess we are slowly making a name for ourselves, we aren't very popular outside of our friends and acquaintances. We just hope to improve our music/songs with time and practice, and if people dig it, that's awesome.
Our main motivation right now is to play shows and have fun, we never even talk about getting signed to a proper label. It's not even on the radar.
I don't know what I could do to promote your group that you can't do yourself (and as we've done for ours). Putting your music on Myspace is a good start, make a webpage (geocites is free), get shows, make flyers, send demos to labels, record stations etc.
