Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
  •  The EvO:R-Pedia Musicians Tips Section

    Welcome to the EvOR Tips Section. We call this section EvOR-Pedia because it is like a complete reference library for Indie musicians...Just about every tip has been used successfully so you won't find false promises and a series of books to buy after reading each tip.

    This section was painstackingly put here by musicians, for musicians so that artists that followed can take this knowledge and use it's full power.

    It's not always who you know, sometimes you just have to read the road signs.

    5 Very Fun and Effective Ways to Promote Your Music
    By David I Naranjo

    Here are a few really fun things you and your bandmates can do to promote your music.

    1. Do live or semi-live street performances. Post up someplace busy on a Friday or Saturday night. Do this every weekend when you don't have real shows booked. If your whole band isn't available the singer can do this one by him/her self. All you need to do is have a recording of the music tracks and play them on a portable music player while singing along to the music. Works great for rap & hip hop artists as well. Get out on the street and let people hear and see you. Bring our CDs to sell.

    2. Do a live stream show- Let your fans see one of your "practice" sessions live online. Do this when you aren't playing shows or doing street performances. Let your Facebook, Twitter and MySpace friends know when the live performance is going to be. You can use a service like Livestream.com to broadcast your sessions LIVE and free. This is great for the busy people who never have time to see you in concert. They can still see you live on their computers.

    3. Get a sponsor. Approach a few local business owners about supporting your band. Tell them you'll give away their coupons at your shows or mention them on your website or during your live stream. If your sponsor is a restaurant maybe they'll give you guys a free meal after the show or give you some cool stuff that you can give away to your fans.

    4. Get all the members of your band to join Secondlife.com. Walk around together in the virtual world as a team and promote your music to everyone you meet!

    5. Join eJamming.com and jam live together from anywhere in the world. Great for practicing because you don't have to pack your gear and schlep it to the rehearsal space. You can also stream your eJamming session into Second Life and perform live as your avatars!

    The key is always to be doing something that helps promote your music. Get out there and keep performing live as much as possible (even if LIVE means virtually live). The more you get out there the more people will hear your music. You never know when that one "right" person will hear your music. That one extra live performance might just be the moment when you run into that person who can really launch your career.

    Promote your music to thousands of college students while also getting the chance to win tons of great prizes. Go to http://bit.ly/battleofthebandsgig and sign up. The entry fee is just $5 but you get tons of FREE promotion of your music along with entry into this really cool music contest.

    A Message from the founder of EvO:R
    The Independent Music world has become so fragmented that anyone entering into this arena will be lost without having a chance of survival. What every independent musicians needs is information, understanding and a path that leads to success. Sure, you can buy a few books from authors that never played a note or loaded a single amp into a moving van. Pipe dreams are all over the Internet.

    At EvO:R we pride ourselves with sections dedicated to Independent Music News called (The EvO:R Street Journal), Musicians Success Stories and Tips called (EvO:R-pedia) and a Musicians Testimonial Section called (The Goods) dedicated to Internet based companies that deliver on their promises.

    All this news and information and we don't charge a single penny. We also respect your online privacy by refusing to track your browsing habits while on our website. We simply want to deliver the BEST news, information and success stories for the Independent Musician.

    Thank-you for visiting EvO:R and tell the world that we are out here..
