cherubCherub – “TuneCore is easy to use and the customer support is awesome.”
david_ramirezDavid Ramirez – “My advice to other artists is to stay hydrated and seek out other new, undiscovered artists. Don’t stand in line for 5 hours trying to see Justin Timberlake…it ain’t gonna happen.”
DJ premierDJ Premier – “My advice to artists going to SXSW is to focus on business and making your brand grow into a huge success…But also have fun and have some type of promo items to bring awareness to your movement (thumb drives with your music or viral footage, CDs, shirts, etc.).”
ebyEby – “It’s an important opportunity to promote our music at an important festival.”

soul_khanSoul Khan – “TuneCore is the easiest & best solution for distributing our music to the public!”
suite_709Suite 709 – “We did a text campaign last year that got a huge response and allowed fans and industry to be in instant communication with the band. This year we’ll do similar poster campaigns, fliers, and all the baseline promo. Then probably something super top secret and over the top!”
