A LITTLE ABOUT US

Just a little bit about us:

We do this for one reason, we love music and we don't think the best of it is getting the attention it should. This includes new artists who are struggling and running into the typical industry barriers and the veteran artists who are still putting out great music but still continue to be overlooked because they don't "fit the mold" of today's country music.

We don't have corporate sponsors, we rarely make any money doing what we do because that's not our focus. We operate off of the occasional donation and we do charge a fee for the occasional long term major promotions but those are few and far between. We don't look to have huge numbers, but instead to help build the artist's audience numbers with people who genuinely care and like the music. If we build big numbers in the process of doing that, we appreciate it but we would rather focus on the quality of who we connect with than the quantity. It's better to have people who care than a bunch of random people who follow and don't care about the music or helping our cause. We also focus on connecting you with the best new music and the best from veteran artists as well and to bridge the gap between the fan and artists.

I am Jenn. I update the website, post press releases, handle our social media accounts, cover concerts, write music reviews and articles, and do photography. I'm basically the CEO of damn near everything and do this in addition to working a regular 8 hr job as a corporate travel agent. I am blessed to have a team of wondeful people working with me to make all of this happen. We have 2 amazing photographers, John Lisa in the NY area and Anthony Barham who covers the NC area, Alyse Smith, a very eager and awesome contributor who submits articles and does music reviews and 2 great occasional contributors that submit reviews as they have time, Han Van Meegerin and John Kreuzer. We all do this simply because we love music and have the same goal - to just make sure the best music is getting out there.

We do giveaways. Most of our giveaways are done through building good relationships with artists and their publicists and management. They provide SOME of the things we give away, but a lot of it comes from our own pockets, including the postage. We like to try and give back in some way for your support and friendship, so know that what we give back isn't just random free merch we have laying around, we actually purchase a lot of these items like the iTunes gift cards, country music related books, cd's, and other items. We hope to have more giveaways coming soon!

So there ya have it, a little background on who we are. We certainly thank you for being here and are so grateful that you choose to be here. Thank you for helping us spread the word about these artists and for helping us do what we can to make a difference. You are part of that difference.
