I need your help! Please read on if you can ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE in helping me get my my new project out there!
Hi Everyone. As some of you may know I have just spent the last 3 years making a record. It has been an amazing process. Now it is time to release it. This is a very independent project and in lue of a marketing plan or budget, I need your help to get it out there. I am relying on word of mouth cos that’s what I gots!
Here’s my plan. Every Monday starting in June 20th am going to release a new song on a bandcamp link that will be posted on my social media accounts and my website (sheilanicholls.com).
This will create a small period of time of exclusivity and focus. A song a week will take 13 weeks since that’s how many tracks there are.
After that the record will be set free into the ether and available on itunes and the like. Read More >>
The idea is to assemble a list of people that, each week, would be willing to share the post as far and wide as possible with their friends and friends friends, music sites/blogs or anywhere you see fit. I am looking for you to reaching at least 100 people per song. Most of you have well over that amount of friends on FB so it shouldn’t be too difficult. Obviously the more the better.
Because this is a record called “All of Nature” – a collection of social commentary to music-….. a part of my intension is to encourage conversation around an accompanying paragraph or two, that poses a thought or a question that each lyric inspires. Each song has a corresponding forum on my website that will go live on my site, on each day of release where I encourage you to help me begin meaningful discussion and debate.
For your troubles, and I do so appreciate your help, I will send you a signed cd. (I know, so retro). It’s not much but I hope it will be enough, it will be a rare item. Making a living as an unsigned artist is a tricky thing . But if I can create an initial bump of traffic we might get something rolling. So I am asking my extended community for your love and support.
So if you are interested and would like to join me, please send me me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject heading “Viral Crew” and I will send you the ‘soundcloud’ link directly each week.
If you live outside the US I really want to hear from you, to get this beyond the beyond. The person I feel has committed the most time and/or created the most viral success will get a free house show anywhere within 100 miles of Los Angeles. If you are the winner and you live further away you will have to pay for my transportation and make sure I’ve got somewhere to sleep. But hey maaaan the show will be free.
Thank you all so much, I want this to be fun and light-hearted. In a hyper commercial world, I make art for the sake of making art and not profit, I can’t be attached to what happens when I put it out there, but I do think this is the best thing I’ve ever made and I would like to give it the best possible chance of reaching people that would appreciate it.
If you have questions please feel free to ask them here, they might inform others.
Thanks again friends. I look forward to hearing from you.
I have come to the personal conclusion that ‘consciousness is a bigger crucible than matter’ what do you think about the statement?
What are your practices for moving through re-triggered trauma?
Is human nature malleable or static?
When you feel into the possibility and potential of humanity, what is your grandest vision?
