About Bards Crier Music Marketing Tips

Greetings! Since February 2000, I have provided free music marketing and promotion tips for working musicians like you. The name may have changed, and I may have briefly dropped out of the music biz world, but my passion has never died.

Bards Crier Music Marketing Tips is a Free music marketing and promotion ezine for musicians. It features articles on how to promote music, book reviews, awards, music business directory, and tips for unsigned bands. When you subscribe you get free tips on how to sell more CDs, plus other bonus eBooks.

Who am I that I can write about music marketing and promotion. My name is Marc Gunn. I am the lead singer and autoharpist for the Brobdingnagian Bards. We perform music that is like a Renaissance of Celtic music. Imagine the Barenaked Ladies as roaming minstrels. That's us.

Since my partner and I started playing music to us, we've steadily beaten the odds. We were a no-named band that barely knew what Celtic music was. Now we have tens of thousands of fans worldwide largely due to our astounding success on MP3.com. One of our songs, "Tolkien (The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)" had over a million downloads before that website shut it's doors.

We had number one MP3 hits out the wazzoo, but ye know. Ye probably still haven't heard of us. That's because we've mastered the art of niche guerrilla music marketing. You may not have heard of us, but ask about us among the Renaissance Festival or even online Celtic community and more than likely you will have heard of us.

We've made an impact. And this impact is largely due to the tips you will read in this ezine. I'm a big proponent MP3s and aggressive guerrilla (meaning low-cost or free) marketing. I'm also extremely dedicated to reaching my goal of making a living as a full-time musician. It's taken longer than I anticipated, but it's a great story to tell.
