  2. Just to get things started, many of you don’t know that in addition to Hypebot, I run the national booking agency Skyline Artists (www.skylineartists.com) and many acts on our diverse roster have projects coming out next year.
    On the Hypebot front, we’re working on a mobile friendly makeover. And I’d love to hear from you what we can do better or new for next year. Hypebot exists to serve you.

  3. Hello fellow music lovers. My name is Tommy Marolda from the band The Toms. I am a Grammy nominated songwriter and producer having worked with Imagine Dragons, Killers, Bon Jovi, Cher, Dr. Dre and many more. I have hundreds of songs in movies like The Expendables, Rocky, Stayin’ Alive, Days Of Thunder and more in TV and ads. I am always happy to help the new artist achieve their goals and one way to fast track an artist is to offer my songwriting, production and recording services through my site. Mysonggram.com. A new Richie Sambora / Orianthi project has been completed by lengendary producer Bob Rock and myself assisting for 2017 release. THE TOMS release their new powerpop album titled APPLESTATION in Feb 2017 which comes out in vinyl as well as all the other formats. Pre-orders are going through the roof by word of mouth only…royalty payments and DIY projects are on the rise, so stay tuned to my bible of information, Hypebot.com
    2017 is our year!!!~

  5. Greetings all,
    Dön Harrisön here and I’m always looking to network. In fact, “Learning, sharing, and cultivating relationships” has always been my motto.
    I’m a music biz lifer, creator of ‘Oath of the Indie Musician’ (dubbed Artist Development in Verse Form), and author of ‘Take the Oath: A Practical Pocket Guide for the Indie Musician’ both available at http://www.networkordie.com and I’m part of the team bringing you Professor Pooch’s Music Business Education at http://www.professorpooch.com/Education.htm
    I’ve also migrated into film and self-publishing, sharing that info as @IndieBizCoach on Twitter and at http://www.screamfix.com for those into horror.
    Let me know if you wanna do some cool stuff together \m/

  6. Happy Holidays! I enjoy Hypebot’s daily news links & info on the music industry. I believe these are exciting times for artists with all the new tech opportunities. My husband owns Winslow Ct Studio based in Hollywood & I’m launching a new site http://www.winslowctaudio.com to share what he has learned as sound engineer & showcase the talented artists he has worked with Album Spotlights.

  7. I love this idea! I’m Amanda, a singer-songwriter from New Jersey. This past year I’ve completed a 52-week weekly song project, taken my guitar informally on a punk cruise, spontaneously sung with my favorite artist (Frank Turner) on a chair on said cruise ship, played a last-minute opening slot with two other artists I like in England on vacation/business, and busked all over NJ/NYC train stations. (You can find more about all that on my website.)
    I haven’t worked out all the details yet or told many people, but in 2017 I’m committing myself to release an EP and go on three brief (ultra low budget and no expectations) tours – northeast/Midwest, southeast/southwest and England. It’s kind of a lot but I always commit myself to a lot and somehow I’ve always found a way to follow through!
    I also want to be more involved with the music/singer-songwriter scene in New York City, so if anyone involved with that happens to read this I would love to hear from you!

  8. WE ARE ON FIRE!!!!

  11. Greetings all! Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself to this community – my plans for the coming year already included an entry reading, “follow the hypebot community more closely”.
    I’m a multi-instrumentalist recording artist from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley in the U.S.
    This video offers a nice glimpse of what I do in under 3 minutes for the curious/interested:
    Smoodles! – In the studio music video: https://youtu.be/ZZDWZQMvlJM
    This year I completed a year-long effort to create a video album – it’s ten songs recorded over 12 months – with in-the-studio-music-videos for each song – predominantly one musician with one camera.
    Essentially it’s a year-long rock & roll selfie.
    Blue Ajay’s meatball Surgery Video Album:
    Having completed the video album – I’ve started a new YouTube show. I’ve uploaded the first episode and I’m currently finishing the second.
    Blue Ajay’s #15minShow
    The #15minShow will be my primary artistic vehicle for the coming year – and I have a (methinks lofty) goal of 50 episodes by the end of 2017.
    I’ve been working on the workflow and architecture for this effort for the last two years – 2017 is “planned” to be the year of the output.
    Thanks again for the opportunity to introduce myself and get a bit of self-promotion off of my chest. It’s appreciated.
    Smoodles! Everybody – and to hopes for a wonderful and happy new year.
    Blue – @BoozeMonkey

  12. Hi there,
    My name is Kay Cardinal, and I’m out of Calgary, Alberta. I really like networking with people from all corners of the industry! Hyperbot also provides a plethora of info that I value!
    I run an A class recording studio, as well as a school for audio engineering and production, and an artist development company.
    In 2017 I will be working on BD for the studio; we cover all audio related projects – musical, post production, audio for gaming, applications, digital assets, VO, audio books etc.
    I am interested in networking with individuals in the US who are interested in doing business in Canada to take advantage of the lower price.
    Also I am searching for top shelf professional producers, songwriters, composers, and all sorts of industry professionals who would like to connect and collaborate.
    Please do get in touch if you think it’s a fit!

  14. hey,
    i am not interested in selling anything, including my music. promoting it is an exercise in narcissism. i am a content creator for myself. the stuff i create is a way to look at how i process my view of the world. words and music offer a mirror for reflection. not a “brand” or “platform”, just a personal perspective not intended for commerce. if art becomes commerce, it’s not art, it’s just opm (other people’s money). how sad.

  19. Hello my name is Dior ( aka Artisan). I am an EDM producer from Memphis, Tn. I mainly work in the genres of electro, dubstep, and trance. I have done a couple of remixes but now I am working on my debut EP and looking for some singers and collaborate with. You can listen to my tracks at https://soundcloud.com/artisanmuzik/tracks and I am very open to feedback as it is the best way to learn and improve. Also please feel free to ask me any questions about music promotion as I have a background in sales in marketing and have helped other artists promote their work.

  20. Hi All,
    Today my statup, The Song Market, launched our pre beta. We are a social platform for predicting and discover the next hit songs. Think fantasy football for music. We would love any feedback we can get on how to make the experience better, and I am glad to do the same for you.
    Thank you!

  21. Hello my name is David and am based in Sheffield, England. I have been the executive producer of a 10 track Album Gravel House Project. All the songs are original and high quality. Themes are about relationships and love lost and found but also wider issues like space and time. I would appreciate advice about effective ways to get the music ‘out there’. I have tried online and offline radio, local radio, student radio, music blogs, music publishers, music supervisors, music libraries etc. and had some responses but not great! I consider these songs to be worthy of wider ‘reach’ – do I need to pay for promotion and marketing? If so where should I target a budget? You can check out the tracks at http://www.thegravelhouseproject.com
