You wrote a great song, you recorded it, now all you need to do is throw it up on Spotify and watch the streams come rolling in right? Wrong!
The age of streaming presents new opportunities for musicians based in regional areas, but only if you know how to take advantage. With over 60,000 songs being uploaded every day (whoa) you need to understand and engage with these platforms if you’re going to stand out.
MusicNSW Regional Music Officer Sats Kramer is joined by Viv Mellish from digital distribution heavyweight GYROstream in a special session designed to help you get the most out of your digital release.
Join us at 6pm Wednesday 10 November on Zoom as Viv takes you through all the different digital streaming platforms (DSPs), the importance of playlists, how a waterfall release strategy works, pitching tips and HEAPS more. This will be followed by a Q+A session where Sats will put any questions you might have to Viv.
The event is free with registration, and will be hosted by Sats Kramer, MusicNSW Regional Music Officer for the South East.
