My new single, “Savage Nomads” will be released on Tuesday. There are lots of ways to put music out there these days — I’ve used SoundCloud, BandCamp and Tunecore separately and simultaneously for years. Lately I’ve been releasing a new single every few months on Bandcamp, but I decided to to something different this time. It seemed like the blockchain was the only place to put my music at this moment because of all the creative insights I’ve had since becoming a part of the Steemit community.
Here’s a video that I posted after my first month on Steemit. I’m sharing this again because it demonstrates how being on the site has clarified my creativity and shown me a way forward after a frustrating period of having to come to grips with the fact that I wasn’t getting my music across because I wasn’t getting it to the audience that could hear it. If you’re a creative artist with talent and drive, but you’re also hungry for a breakthrough, I hope these thoughts can help!
Please follow the goings on at my DSound page — the song will drop in the next 24 hours. Take this opportunity to join the Steemit community and start being compensated for your curation and content. Steemit is the anti-Facebook and there are very active music and photography communities on the site.
In anticipation I have some good mentions I’m rolling out and I’m doing some radio and podcasts here in Nashville to help promote the song. I’m most excited about the capsule review the song got from legendary music critic Anthony DeCurtis…
“Savage Nomads” evokes its smart sources, but isn’t overwhelmed by them. It feels loose, free and contemporary — full of pleasure and ideas.”
