OK, so I got my CD. I am so excited about it! It’s been ready for so long and I’ve been listening to it a lot and now I want to hear what everyone else thinks:)
The hard part is really knowing what to do next. I have people who come into the bar where I work and they ask “So when’s the album dropping?” and my answer is “I’m working on it”. Which is true. I have so much information coming at me from a million different directions. My music mentor Cari Cole thinks I should make 2 video firsts, then release each single, and THEN release my album. My patience and bank account don’t seem up for that.
I’m trying to find the balance between what people in the industry think and what I feel is right. When I released my EP “The Difference”, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I thought telling people about it would be enough to get them to the show and although my good friends came, no one else did. I had no idea about proper marketing and PR. So this time I’m taking all that into consideration.
I am trying to be patient and to do what is best for this album even though patience is not my strongest virtue. I just wanted to share how much actually goes into releasing a record. There’s a lot behind the scenes that even I don’t know about yet…. but that I’m learning. So I’ll share with you as I go. Glad you’re here:-)
-Lots of record releasing love,
