Organizing all of your music, content and contact information in one location—that is consistent with your branding is critical for the success of your musical career. Your personalized website is your around the clock, 24/7 liaison that will globally promote you while you're sound asleep. It also provides a professional hub to communicate with your fan base and simple accessibility for your network leads to contact you. While having profiles on entertainment geared social networking sites such as Reverbnation, Facebook, etc. is important, you're competing with thousands of other artists and distracting advertisements. Presenting an industry professional with a customized website (with your own domain name) makes you, the artist, memorable and doubly serves as your electronic press kit. More importantly, you want to know who is listening to your music, at what times, and how often. You want need to know the facts and statistics and you can only get that with a web host. Here are 5 idomusiconline recommended web hosts that offer features specifically for musicians with no website design skills (or time) required.
The International Music Conference (IMC) hosted an Artist Showcase last Friday, September 12th at Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia. Talents of all genres competed for the coveted prize of personal meetings with Atlanta A&R executives. As you could imagine the artist showcase differed greatly from the previous night's producer showcase. In the artist showcase, judges had several additional factors to consider outside of production such as image, stage presence, vocal talent, lyrical ability, etc. The judge panel consisted of Associate Director of Writer/Publisher Relations of SESAC, Greggory Smith; Manager & A&R, Charles Connor; and Membership for ASCAP, Joncier Rienecker. Drawn from the remarks of the judges, we compiled 4 lessons learned from the artist showcase. You can use these tips to improve your next performance.
The International Music Conference hit the Sheraton Hotel in Atlanta Georgia beginning on September 10-14th. The IMC combines all facets of today’s music scene and places artists, songwriters, executives, and other music professionals in the same room to network and construct real opportunities domestically and aboard.
I attended a full day of panels discussing everything from how up and coming entertainers can get their foot in the door, to how you can create a cost effective tour. In today’s music we see that a “star” can be made simply by uploading a few singles on to YouTube and gaining major label interest, alla Justin Bieber and Iggy Azalea to name a few. But that route may or may not hold the same level of success, in starting or sustaining your music career nowadays.
The International Music Conference (IMC) returned to Atlanta for it's 4th Annual conference congregating prominent industry professionals and aspiring creatives together for four event packed days beginning Wednesday, September 10th.
Thursday, September 11th, IMC hosted an exciting and entertaining Producer Showcase at Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge. The showcase allotted an opportunity for up & coming producers to present their material to a judge panel and compete for one-on-one meetings with the IMC industry professional network in London. “The IMC provides invaluable feedback and advice about taking your career to the next level,” says IMC CEO/Founder Julia Huie-Martin to Allhiphop.com. “A lot of our registrants [...] are still in contact with panelists from last year."
The International Music Conference (IMC) is taking place starting next Wednesday, September 10th at The Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. The IMC is celebrating its 4th year and Patchwerk Recording Studios is excited to be a sponsor. The exact dates are below:
Thursday September 11, 2014
Friday September 12, 2014
Saturday September 13, 2014
You will also have the opportunity to participate in our Song Feedback Session and the SESAC P.R.O.Mancing The Song Speed Dating Workshop on Saturday September 13.

Sony Music Entertainment is now offering discounts on selected albums through a new app starting today(Aug 14). The United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland, have all been invited to the party following its successful launch in Germany earlier this year.
The application is available to download from the Apple Store for iPhone and iPod Touch users running iOS7. Users have the opportunity to purchase artist albums from Sony's roster with up to a 70% discount, limited for 24 hours. Album of the Day surprises music fans daily with a single album offering, giving fans of all types the opportunity to discover great albums missing from their digitalmusic library.
How can you make your live show performance better? Please understand jumping around on stage for however long your set doesn't qualify as quality either. Considering how money is made for artist/bands in today's music climate, the live show shouldn't be an afterthought.
Most artists understand the importance between a great producer and a great recording, but they fail to recognize the need for the same type of investment (time, energy, money) into their live show. What is the purpose of songwriting days on end, sleepless nights in the studio, and a few minutes before a show figuring out what songs you actually are going to perform? Seems a bit counter productive don't you think? It might be time to change your mind. Producing your live show is an investment that will pay off tremendously. Watch the merchandise sales go up, more bookings become readily available and it's the best marketing tool because word of mouth is the best buzz!
The idea of merging Drake, Lil Wayne, and Capcom together is genius. Taking two of the biggest names in today's hip hop world and an iconic video game spells cash money. Literally.
The concept for the Capcom-sponsored tour is complemented by a new iOS and Android app — also called Drake vs. Lil Wayne —that determines how the tour plays out.
This could be the beginning of something special with an artist vs artist concept. The fan experience at any event is beyond important. It is what will lead the next fan in the other city to want to participate. Especially in a time today where the fan has to be kept engaged otherwise they lose interest quickly.
The file-sharing protocol, BitTorrent, has landed on iOS after years of being rejected.
Thanks to the diligent research developer that finally figured how to get through the insane piracy delaying Apple to grant the go ahead. The application is called Blue Downloader. It only allows users to access above-board torrent sites, most of which offer content within the public dominion. A few for example are BitTorrent's own Bundle, Bitlove(podcast archiving), Archive.org, Public Domain Flicks and Librivox.
Florida Georgia Line is on a roll with their amazing platinum certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America.
Figures recently released show in the month of July that their 2012 single "Cruise" has now hit eight-times platinum status. Their debut album "Here's to the Good Times" has crossed into double-platinum territory.
The honor of a platinum album award means shipments of over 1 million units in the U.S. Platinum singles are rewarded based on a combined total of 1 million units based on figures for digital sales and song streams.
The rate Florida Georgia Line's single "Cruise" is heading, it could reach the 10 million mark calling for the RIAA rarely seen Diamond certification. In January 2014, the song was named the best-selling country digital single of all time.
Iggy Azalea is having an excellent summer. The top two slots of Billboard's Summer Songs
chart have been "Fancy" and a guest spot on Ariana Grande's "Problem." Two more are slowly but surely rising with "Black Widow" featuring Rita Ora and guest feature on mentor T.I.'s single "No Mediocre."
The crossover into film and television has already begun for Azalea as well. Vin Diesel recently revealed she is set to film a cameo in Fast and Furious 7 due in 2015. MTV.com named Azalea host of House of Style also. She seems to have the model for success as a white female rapper and growing clout on tour. She will headline Budweiser’s Made in America Festival in Los Angeles and the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas which will only bolster her promising future.
