If any of you guys like my music, please join the facebook group, The Sound Of Nails on a Chalkboard.
Being a very small name, most of the people in the group are people that I either live in close proximity to or are actually good friends with, and my personal account is the admin, so if you join please be respectful, and no star wars talk on there please. 😃
I need more ways to promote this. Maybe I should make a website or something. I’m considering spending part of my next tax return getting the rights to all the cover songs so I can actually promote it and sell it conventionally. (Getting the license for cover songs isn’t as expensive as you might think but I bet I’ve done over 100 songs, or at least close to it. I don’t get any financial gain as it is. I pay for everything out of pocket and give out the CDs for free. I don’t really mind that it’s not about money at all I just like knowing I’m entertaining people. But being able to legally charge something small like say 5 bucks a CD would go a long way to helping recoup the costs of the making the CDs. There’s alot of costs, printer ink, jewel cases, special paper for the covers, blank discs… It adds up pretty fast. And for the folks don’t digital downloads maybe something like 3 dollars an album to cover the costs of the music itself e.g. guitar strings, guitar maintenance, microphones, and possibly recoup some of the losses of getting the rights in the first place.
This is a long way off though, as of now I’m still unlicensed and everything is free.
