HARRIET HORDEN - A Night At The Savoy, 1933
Reminder: the Sample track ("The Year of Wonders") from the album is now available for you to listen to on the MANNING web site as well!
So, the burning question is "How do you get to play gigs in Europe" (please don't say Practise!).
Many promoters are simply not even bothered to speak to you unless you have played there before. Catch 22? Times are tough!
There are currenty a lot of bands out there fighting for the same festival slots, gigs etc
So any suggested venues, promoters or friends of the family who know people in the know...please pass them along!
So how do you self promote a new release without coming across as a self serving egotistical git?
A hard job IMO!
Every year I need to inform people about the new album but there is no distanced objective management function really doing that for me...so it becomes a case of "..hey I've got a new album out..".
Many bands must face this problem, alot simply hijack FACEBOOK, MYSPACE etc through their friends network...but this inevitably just p***es everyone…
