How to Leverage Social Media for Musicians

Indie artist recording music at home


How do you use social media as a musician? Recently I received questions about this from my conservatory students.

Social media is no longer new. They are now indispensable in our daily lives. Websites, apps, web apps, search engines, communities, social music, social gaming, TV, and radio programs. Social media has penetrated all other layers of communication, such as traditional media, mass media, and offline events. Incidentally, we can also do pretty well without it for a day.

Social media marketing, or SMM, also became a big opportunity for musicians to promote their music online.


Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and Instagram are now considered ‘traditional’ social media.

I also consider YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud to be social media. For musicians, these are channels that you can no longer ignore.


That could be anything. Choose a medium because the people you want to reach are there.

If Facebook is the place to talk to them, then you build your audience there.

So be where your audience is. And keep in mind that it changes.


The development of social music (streaming) is still in the beginning. The changes are happening fast.

Social media play a very big role in this, that’s how the news is spread.


With all those channels, you have to make sure you don’t drown.

The trick is to filter. That is why there are sites that do curate. They filter for you.


If you want to reach people, you need something they can relate to. It’s not that complicated.

Timing is also important, so responding to current events can work well. Especially on Twitter, it is very much about news.

Just try and find your way in it. This way you will find your own tone of voice.


I started Twitter myself out of interest and love for the medium.

Follow nice people and watch that a bit.

They’re all people like you.

Share what you would like to read yourself.

You don’t have to become a professional copywriter. But when you write something, try to put yourself in the reader’s shoes.


Look at yourself (or your group) as a brand or a product. Then ask yourself what things are fun, interesting, entertaining, newsworthy, and distinctive to tell about.

Ask questions. How can you look at it? If you can’t figure it out, ask your biggest fans. They see, hear and say things that you would never think of yourself.

See the big picture, think of it as a big story, then divide it into pieces and then divide them over time. Then it is easy for others to understand and follow.

The more coherence there is in your stories, the stronger it comes across. For example, look at the success story of Caro Emerald. A strong concept.

Just like texting, social media is not suitable for everything.

When it comes to emotional things, stop by or call.

The written word sometimes comes in hard.

I would also avoid too much breast-beating.

People decide for themselves what they think of something. So post whatever you would like to read yourself.

Personally, I especially enjoy posting, sharing, and starting conversations. I’m not so worried about target groups and objectives. I enjoy contact with (more or less) like-minded people.

Make sure you have something to say. And if in doubt: just start listening.

I assume that people who follow me find about the same interesting as I do. So that’s my criterion. I have nothing to do with the people who don’t follow me. That’s not what it’s for.

Being authentic is the most important thing. In the end, it’s about whether the other person recognizes himself in it. So if you tweet once that you’re looking for a room, everyone understands. But I wouldn’t do that every month.


Social media as a musician starts with: seeing yourself as a brand, and your work as products of your brand. Even if you’re a session musician.

A brand is much more than a product. Look at Queen or David Bowie. They are more than the sum of their oeuvre. The performer is also the source.

What’s going on in great artists when they make a new record?

A product is usually easy to oversee and you can put it on the market.

A musician is actually someone with different products. They give you your face.

You are not your product, although you can identify with it very strongly for a while. Nike is not one particular sneaker.

Seeing yourself as a product can work for a while, but as a brand, you have more of a long breath.


Too much is of course not good. Where is your own boundary? Chances are that your audience also has a boundary.

Make sure you have something to say or don’t do it.

On Facebook, one post a day is more than enough.

On Twitter, it’s no problem to repeat things.


Even if you determine the artistic part yourself, ultimately others determine your success.

I’m a big proponent of self-reflection. Occasionally look in the mirror.

Make sure your activities are in line with who you are and how you want to come across.

Ways to Reset Apple Music on Library

Your favorite musical genres are requested when you initially join up for Apple Music. By doing this, it can make personalized custom playlists for you and make sure you hear less of the music you don’t like. This is incredibly effective, although it goes without saying that people’s musical preferences change over time.

What you enjoy today might not be your guilty pleasure tomorrow.

You would then need to restart Apple Music in order to add your new preferred genres. Below are the possible procedures to take.

How to Restart iPhone or iPad’s Apple Music Library

1. Tap your profile picture in the Listen Now tab to clear your Apple Music library on an iPhone or iPad. You might be prompted to log in.

2. Click “Edit Profile” from the drop-down menu by tapping the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.

3. Select “Delete Profile” at the very bottom of your scroll. As this is irrevocable, make sure you are doing what you are supposed to.

How to Restart Mac’s Apple Music Collection

1. On a Mac, click on your profile image in the top right corner to start the process of resetting your Apple Music preferences. You might be prompted to log in.

2. There are two menus—an Edit button and a three-dot menu—on the far right side of the page. Select “Edit Profile” from the three-dot menu by clicking it. Your current musical tastes are saved in your profile.

3. You can delete your profile by clicking the red link on the left. Press that. Your profile and soundtracks will no more be visible to others when you select “Delete Profile“, losing all of your selections in the process. It would be like starting over from scratch.

Push Music Through Instagram Marketing

You wrote a great song and now you want to get it out there. Then it comes down to successful marketing. Especially social media can help you with the seemingly endless stage of the internet.

Instagram marketing for artists and bands

First of all, it is important to understand that you do not make any money on Instagram yourself. The platform is more of a means to an end to generate attention, win new fans or enter into cooperation. With intelligent forwarding, for example to Spotify or the iTunes store, you can also convert your listeners’ enthusiasm into profits. With countless active user profiles, you can be sure that users from your genre will find and like your music. This is how you give your music a big stage on Instagram.

Of course, Instagram is rarely a stepping stone to the charts, but with proper use, the platform will be able to expand your relevance in the genre. Professionalism plays a crucial role here and should be apparent the first time you look at your profile. You should make this as individual as possible in order to be remembered by your fans.

buying Instagram likes

Targeted advertising for your music

To expand the potential of your Instagram marketing, you should also link your Instagram band profile to Facebook. This lets you design custom campaigns to draw attention to new songs or albums. If a musician is wanted, you are guaranteed to score points with an active campaign and will be recommended to the seekers. Therefore, pay close attention to the insights about your target group in the advertisement so that you address the right followers.

Tailor-made analyzes with the Instagram tools

The meaningful and detailed insights that can be called up will quickly tell you whether your posts are working. If you decide on an advertising campaign on Instagram, you will also receive many evaluations via the associated analysis tools. For example, you can see how many of the users who saw your campaign switched to your profile. The views of the associated videos and posts are also directly related to this. By buying Instagram likes, you can improve your social media status.

Even if the first campaign didn’t bring the desired results, you should stick to this strategy. It is not without reason that countless musicians trust Instagram to develop the right target group and become better known. Only in very few cases will you be able to achieve high profits with your first campaign. Stay tuned, tweak a few things, and make the next ad more relevant to your music.

Why should Towing Companies Throw Music Parties Sometimes?

Towing services have a lot of responsibilities. There are regulations to follow, customers to serve, and cars to drive. Towing companies like tow truck San Jose need to make sure they’re handling all of these responsibilities well.

Reasons Why Towing Companies should also Throw Music Parties

If you’re the manager of your local towing company, you might be wondering what more you can do to improve things. However, throwing a party is probably not the first thing that comes to mind if you want to improve your business. When it comes down to it, there are many benefits of throwing a music party as part of your company’s strategy.

Here are three reasons why throwing a music party can help your business grow and thrive.

You’ll Show Your Employees that You Care

One of the best reasons to throw a music event is to show your employees that you care. If your business is anything like many other businesses, you probably have a lot of stressed-out employees who aren’t being paid enough to deal with their stress.

When you have stressed-out employees, it’s really hard to get work done. If you want to improve your business, you need to find ways to relieve your employees’ stress levels. Music events allow your employees to let loose and have a good time.

You’ll Build Trust with Customers

Trust between businesses and customers is incredibly important. But what does this have to do with music events? Well, when you throw a music event, you’re not just throwing a party for your employees. You’re also throwing a party for your customers. When you throw a music party for your customers, you can foster the growth of trust between them and your company.

When they feel more connected to your company, they’re more likely to trust you and use your services.

It is also Good for Marketing

While you’re throwing a music event, you can also use it to market your towing company. You can post photos and videos of the event on social media. For example, if you’re hosting a DJ night, you can hand out flyers at the event. Finally, you can also use the music event as a way to promote your other marketing campaigns.

Using Solo Ad Plus Tips for Music Email Marketing



You’re ready. Your demo is tip top in order, you have a number of fans behind you, and you are easy to find on the internet so you have something to offer. You open your laptop and start writing an email. The reason for your email could be anything. Maybe you want to promote your music or pique the interest of a record company. Or maybe you just want to contact a radio station for an interview. Anyway, you write an e-mail and want to achieve something with it. Writing an email that perfectly matches the recipient can be difficult. It should come across as short and sweet and arouse the reader’s interest in a few paragraphs. Aside from opting to buy solo ads traffic, here are a few practical tips to leverage email marketing to promote your music.

Ten points that should be reflected in your e-mail anyway

There are a number of points that should be reflected in your e-mail anyway. You can use this as a checklist. We have already listed them for you:

  1. Salutation: This can be done both formally and informally (Dear Sir/Madam … or: Dear … )
  2. Date: If you send a letter by post, you have to add it, but in the e-mail, it is of course already there automatically.
  3. Short biography/ introduction of yourself or your band: No more than a few lines.
  4. What you already have to offer as a music entrepreneur: How many fans do you already have? Have you released an album? Where did you perform? Do you have your own website or demos?
  5. Artist name and/or name of your band: This is best put at the bottom of the email.
  6. Your name and/or signature: Also at the bottom of your letter or e-mail.
  7. Your address, e-mail address, and possibly your logo
  8. Your telephone number and contact details
  9. Close your letter neatly: For example, think of; “Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response”
  10. Links to your website, youtube videos, Facebook page, etc.: Add these at the bottom of your e-mail and briefly state what it is exactly.

The tone of your letter

Once you have found an organization or person you want to contact, for example, a record company, a radio station, or perhaps a club, it is good to know what the organization itself radiates. Take a good look at the website of the person or organization. Read it carefully and calmly. Try to find out what tone they write in. Do the texts on their website come across as formal or informal? Then try to write the letter in a similar tone and adjust it accordingly.


ALSO READ: How Music Change Your Mood?


Introducing yourself

This may be the most challenging. It is advisable to keep your letter short and sweet so that the person who reads it will not drop out quickly. Therefore, use short sentences and do not write too long paragraphs. The shorter you can describe yourself or your band, the better it is. Major record companies receive about 100 demos a day. That is why it is important that your letter immediately stands out.

Describe in two or three sentences what you already have to offer as a music entrepreneur. Talk about your promotional activities, your website or your Facebook Page, your videos on Youtube, the albums you’ve already sold, or the shows and performances you’ve already done or booked. Think of anything a record label, club, or organization would find interesting. Don’t forget to tell us why your music is so unique. What makes your band so special? Why does the record company have to hire YOU? Or why does a radio station have to book YOU for an interview? It is therefore good to know what your originality is. Why is your music different from other people’s?

Attract attention

Many record companies, clubs, and studios are companies that focus on profit, so they should be able to see something in you. However, there are also plenty of smaller organizations and companies that are looking for original and unique talent. Therefore, make sure that you know exactly what kind of society or organization it is that you are contacting. Read the guidelines carefully before submitting demos, for example. Try to put extra emphasis on your originality and why you are so unique as a music entrepreneur. With creativity, you can go a long way!

Let someone else read your email

If the content of your letter is complete, it is of course wise to check your letter several times for language and spelling errors. Let someone else read it too. Ask how it comes across and try to see the criticism you get as constructive.

If you have sent your e-mail and you still have not received a reply after about a week, you can still make a call whether they have received the e-mail. If so, ask what they thought. With record companies, you have to be careful with this, because some do not want this. You can find all this on their website.

A negative answer is in any case an answer!

Maybe you don’t get an answer, or you get a negative answer. No problem! Just keep going! Many famous artists, artists, and authors have been rejected several times before they were discovered. If you get a negative answer, you could take it positively. In any case, they took the trouble to read through your letter, listen to your demo, and write you an email back! That doesn’t happen all the time and again; feedback can be seen as constructive criticism.

So dear music entrepreneurs, start your email today!

Bags undeniably have certain advantages.

This is particularly useful if you are travelling by public transport. They also offer a lot in terms of protection. High-quality gig bags are well padded, additionally reinforced in particularly stressed areas and protect against the weather. This means that they are completely sufficient if you transport your instrument yourself, as long as there is no risk of getting caught between other heavy equipment and being exposed to strong impacts.

With heavy loads, a bag can no longer offer sufficient protection. You should urgently think about sturdy cases or even more robust flight cases.

Pedalboards, which in turn are packed in bags or cases, not only offer good protection for your pedals and the cables connected to them. They can also greatly simplify the construction.

The following applies to drummers. For transport, you should always unscrew the cymbals and put them in a cymbal bag or a cymbal case. A bag or case provided for this purpose is also recommended for the hardware. With a blanket, you can also prevent the hardware from scratching each other. To protect the drums themselves, you can also buy special bags, suitcases or a flight case.

Take care of your safety, musical instruments and car wraps long island

Who doesn’t know this? The car is loaded to the roof with equipment, maybe one or the other band member is buried under the stuff. Of course, not only the safety of your instruments is important during transport, but also your own safety. So always make sure that you secure your instruments in the car accordingly.

Apple Music into Android Phone

Apple Music’s next beta version is going out on Android, including an essential update to the widgets’ home screen and probably the name of Apple’s independent legendary genre app that is reliable on Primephonic.

Apple Music Improved Widgets

In such a long time frame, Apple Music owned two Android widgets. They’ve had their bulky padding at the border taken out in version 3.9, giving them chance to take up a lot screen/widget space. Upon scaling, the widget of the “Apple Music Player” is wider and taller, while “Apple Music Recently Played” gives more options. The grid that displays recent tracks comes handy in 32 and 31 sizes, having the upper half getting bigger as well.

The other big change is that both backgrounds of the widgets are now highly connected to the album artwork for the updated song. It converts back to the old red/pink tint when nothing is playing.

These widgets are present in beta and includes variations in visual flaws, including corners with sharp properties that vary depending on the setup. Before Apple Music 3.9 is released — probably in March with iOS 15.4 — this issue should be rectified.


Apple purchased Primephonic in August of last year to enhance its streaming service’s legendary music capabilities. Right after some time, the music app was shut down, and present members were transferred to Apple Music. This was until the new Apple app was up and coming in early 2022.

The Apple Music beta actually has a string that displays the word “Apple Classical” and the impending selection to open suitable music directly in the optimized service as the deadline is going near.

Loud Music’s Impact on Driving Performance

When driving your 2022 Honda Passport in tough terrain, you would rather want to turn down your loud music to help you concentrate on the rough terrain up ahead. Loud music can distract you.

Driving your car while listening to music might help you feel like you’re on top of the world. When a cop flashes his lights and pulls you over, though, you won’t feel that way. Many individuals are unaware that listening to loud music while driving is very hazardous, increasing the risk of driving recklessly and being involved in a vehicle accident.

Is it against the law to listen to loud music while driving?

The short answer is that it’s difficult. Although there is no national regulation, some counties and localities regard listening to loud music as dangerous driving, which is a traffic violation.

Each jurisdiction has its own view of what constitutes too loud music while driving. If the music can be noticed from 75 feet away, the motorist may obtain a penalty in certain regions. The distance is 50 feet in other cities.

Loud Music’s Impact on Driving Performance

The impacts of loud music on driving have been researched by researchers. Loud music slowed people’s response speeds, according to a Canadian study. People who were listening to loud music took 20% longer to accomplish mental and physical activities than those who were not listening to loud music, according to the research.

The pace of the music has an effect on the driver as well. Drivers who listened to music with a pace of 120 beats per minute were more inclined to drive recklessly, according to a research conducted by Warren Brodsky at Ben-Gurion University.

They were twice as likely to run a red light as those who listened to slower-tempo music, and they had twice many more accidents as those who listened to slower-tempo music.

In high-speed scenarios, impaired driving accidents are common. Loud music drivers have slower response times and are more prone to accelerate, making them very risky. The repercussions of driving while distracted by loud music may be disastrous.

Common Methods of Starting a Mix

How do you start a mix? – A perfectly legitimate question. Some ponder it and try it out, some don’t waste thought about it and just do everything as usual. It turns out, however, that there are a few starting points that mixing engineers and producers like to pursue.

First of all, it is the case that in many productions the exact point at which editing ends and mixing begins cannot be made out correctly. Even if you use a to-do list or deadline to define a point in time at which all the clipping is over and the sound balance begins – inconsistencies are almost always noticeable in the mixing process. Sometimes they do that because they only step over the masking threshold after processing with EQ, dynamics, and, above all, faders.

Methods To Start A Mix

Bass drum as the first signal

The bass drum as the basis for the mix of an entire track is not only found in music genres in which the kick plays a major role, for example in hip-hop. One explanation for this can be that the instrument is one of the deepest and most energetic and the mix is ​​built up in the spectrum from the bottom up. At least at the beginning. Another explanation could be that the bass drum used to be on channel 1 at the analog console in music production and was recorded on track 1, especially in consoles with simple routing or via direct out on the tape machine – and as the first signal in the mix again on the first Sewer system Even more obvious is that live technicians have carried over the habit of starting the soundcheck with the kick drum into the studio and doing the mixdown.

The advantage of this type is obvious: an essential signal is used as the basis for the mix. But what follows then the snare? Or the bass? And one problem: once shaped as desired, this first signal is unlikely to stay that way. It has to be readjusted, again and again, be it in relation to bass drum/bass or in relation to the attack sound in relation to vocals, guitars, and the like.

Singing as the first signal

“The most important signal first!” – This is how you could explain this approach. And it seems plausible to first shape and polish the part of the music that gets the most attention, i.e. singing/vocals/rap, as needed. This is then the guideline on which all further signals are aligned.

At first glance, that sounds quite reasonable. And on the second too! However, the direction and signals of music have to be right. This is a practicable approach for singer-songwriter music, pop, hit, and hip-hop. The danger here, too, is that the vocal signal itself doesn’t have to sound so “good” and complete in order to work in a mix.

This addresses one of the main problems of the two previous methods: judging signals in the mix in solo mode for a mix is ​​actually a bit clumsy. The topic is definitely something for in-depth discussions among colleagues.

Main microphone as the first signal

Many productions are not recorded with the main microphone. If so, primarily for orchestral and choir productions, it makes sense to work on the stereo system first. If the recording has been done properly here, the mix requirements are quickly kept within narrow limits, and some recorded support microphones do not have to appear in the mix at all.

That seems far away in a rock/pop production? Well: This approach can be transferred, for example, to first starting with the overhead miking of a drum kit in order to mix the drum subgroup.

Overall Mix

Whether it really makes sense to process solo signals in a mix is ​​an open question. Another approach is to roughly create the complete mixture and work your way from a rough mix into the final product. The advantage: At first, the most essential, most important parameters are used, i.e. the level. Then the processing of the level curve by automation or dynamics processing or the setting of frequency-dependent levels (using filters and EQ) can follow. The nice thing about this method is that everything can always be heard in context. However, it is not for everyone to clear the chaos, especially with really complex productions, which quickly contain three-digit track counts. Accordingly, there is an exciting variation:

Main Signals

Instead of creating all the signals for the start of the mix, the basic stock does the same, for example, vocals, bass drum, bass, snare, guitar, and bass – without effects, duplications, background vocals, pads, effect signals, and the like. With this method, the essential parts of a mixture are processed and positioned to such an extent that the sound is balanced. Here, too, it is often noticed that some of the available signals are not necessary at all and only stick the mix together and make it non-transparent. Overall, this approach appears to be one of the most sensible.

Everything else

Of course, there are other approaches to starting with a mix. Did you get to know other methods? How and with what do you start?
