That leads me to my next question – what advice would you give to up and coming bands?
Put on a great live show and make each performance interesting. Gain an audience by becoming a great live act and then those fans will buy your studio efforts. You don’t need to be a jam band to change your setlist every night. And don’t undervalue Spotify. Ask your fans to add your music to their shared playlists. I’ve discovered plenty of acts that way in 2011.
