Great overview, Clyde! I've been doing music PR since 1997 and have developed online press kits with this exact issue in mind. Artists and their representatives can be walked through an online presence for the media when they use the free service at http://www.storyamp.com , as well as have their concerts emailed to relevant journalists in the respective city. In addition, you can download a free ebook on how to write compelling press pitches here http://www.storyamp.com/book . Thank you! - Dmitri @StoryAmp

Excellent summary, Jeff. I'd be interested to hear what you think the NEXT chapter is for the music industry. Once these gatekeepers are all gone, won't there emerge another group of gatekeepers who earn their status and significant fan followings by discovering and amplifying music they think merits attention? What form will those gatekeepers or curators come in? Thanks! Dmitri @ StoryAmp http://www.StoryAmp.com :: music PR on cruise control :: :: amplify your story ::

How about: - artist retreats inviting your artists as well as a curated list of other artists with facilitators on topics such as: making great music videos, creating compelling press angles, using DIY web tools - artist retreats to inspire new artistic collaborations (could be piggybacked onto the above); also invite artists form other art forms (painters, dancers, architects, chefs, gardeners, etc.) - artist exchange programs where one artist hosts another in their city for a show and then the other returns the favor (could include housing too) and over time you could develop a circuit, especially in cities that are harder to book profitable shows in Amazing to hear you opening this question to the field for ideas... Good luck! Dmitri @StoryAmp http://www.StoryAmp.com

Yes, please. Experienced musicians and industry veterans please join the conversation. BTW the book itself includes examples of musicians who have successfully used their story to break their careers. The people who provide the examples in the book have worked with hundreds of musicians at all levels. -- Dmitri

Thank you for spreading our message about how to draw in press and fans with compelling stories! If I may, I'd like to invite artists to comment about how they have crystallized their stories and the ways they have expressed them to the public. Case studies are a great way to inspire other musicians. Context helps a listener hear a piece of music with greater understanding and sometimes appreciation. Once you identify compelling aspects of your story as a musician or band or composer... how do you express those ideas in your press materials, but also in your photos, video, from the stage, in your album packaging, through your use of the web and social media, etc. Every piece of music has a story... what's yours?
