I’m in a strange place where I’m trying to stop using Facebook, but about to release an album and I’m feeling like I’m out of options to get the word out about the music and its upcoming release. I ended up reactivating my account to promote the release. It feels like a personal failure.
Anybody else been through this? Are there alternatives? Places where one can build a “home base” for their music with its own identity, nurture and build a relationship with listeners, provide an experience that’s more than just a list of streamable audio files, etc.? I feel like I’m completely out of touch with how to get my band’s music out there and everything I know feels so formulaic and generic.
