I wanted to touch base on the subject of independent artists and touring your city.
As you know, I play in a band called My Satellite. If you don’t know and you’re feeling adventurous - go check us out: Facebook.com/mysatellite
We are a fully independent, ground starter band that has absolutely no support from labels, promoters, booking agents, merchandisers etc. We are the exact opposite from all the bands you have on your walls.
We get tons of messages asking us why we don’t play “insert city here” “inert country here” “insert city that we just played here” and I wanted to sort of say something on the matter. It’s not that we don’t want to play your city or country. Believe me, thats’ what we are gearing up to do! We are giving it our all everywhere we go so perhaps maybe we will make the right connection to be able to tour more outbound around the US and HOPEFULLY other countries one day. If we could, we would go in a heartbeat! The only thing that holds us back is the reality of traveling on 5 peoples’ personal income. We do this all ourselves. The band paid upfront for the merchandise that we have available for you, we pay upfront for the gas and travel it takes to get to you when we get to you, the recording of the music and distribution. All of it adds up.
I just don’t want anyone to think that they are going unheard. YOU ARE NOT, WE ARE LISTENING! :) We appreciate and love all of the support you give to us, and we want you to continuously ask us to come to your city and country!!! I promise, we will when we can! We are working very hard to make those our achievable goals :)
