Recording With Melvin Sparks

I was there and now I’ve come back. Tonight I’m going be recording with the great great Melvin Sparks a pioneer in funk music. They say he was one of the true godfather of hip-hop because of guitar. His joints makes the party bump.

He will be doing some overdubs on a new album I’ve been producing and will be releasing of the artist S.O.A.Q. (more info. here)

He sounds close to Barry White and Teddy Pendergrass and his songs are coming out ssssmmmoookkkkiiiinnnggg!!

What's Up With Internet Radio?

What’s the best way to get your music played on internet radio? There are so many stations out there it’s mind boggling and hard to choose the one that’s right for you. Of course you should do your marketing-thing before you approach anyone one of them. But still to find the one that’s gonna give you love and help you reach all the fans you need to reach is another thing. To find a legit station and one that’s not out of your brother’s back room starting up only reaching two or three people is a task. Yea they’re fans, and hopefully won’t do to much harm except wasting your precious time.

I’m talking about those stations that will pay you publishing for your plays, those stations that will help you reach the widest audience worldwide and give you a chance to properly market and sell your product.

How do you find them?

Self-Publishing

Putting it in the Universe
Putting it in the Universe

Self-publishing is the way to go. Build up the artist worth and everyone will come to you instead of you begging all the time. I have the pleasure of working with some really great artist and all they need is a “in” somewhere. They have a great base and followers so it’s only a matter of time. So we go the route, first copyrighting, then Ascap, BMI, and Sesac.
