ikmultimedia-teamWHO IS IK MULTIMEDIA?
Our company motto, “Musicians First,” actually has a couple of different meanings. First, we’re musicians. And we’re musicians first — engineers, software designers, business specialists, marketing and sales pros, warehouse experts, logistics managers and overall nice guys and girls second. What does that mean to you? It means we only design and create products that we would use. It’s a very simple philosophy, but there’s beauty in simplicity, and it actually guides our product development and production processes. And it works extremely well for us and for you.

ikmultimedia-team2So that’s our philosophy for operation. And we’ve been doing it longer and better than any other company in the market. You see, we don’t “exceed” expectations at IK. We create completely new ones by creating tools that inspire new levels of creativity.

Kill the competition: How to Build Your Own Electronic Press Kit

20130719-210033.jpg
Sample page: www.reverbnation.com/jacquelinejax

Music industry professionals are loving the use of electronic press kits to not only see the full scope of an artists brand, presentation and fan response but to also to keep their offices clutter free. If you want to get serious about your music, add an electronic press kit to your promo plan. First impressions are everything when trying to get the attention of the music industry so make sure your press kit blows them away.

What to include:
A great press kit should include, your photos, music, story and fan demographics.

Where should you send it:
Press kits should be sent to labels, radio, online magazines, news papers, managers, venues and everyone else you want to get coverage from or do business with.

Who has the best deal?
I have shopped around for great deals on press kits for you and would recommend you check out Reverbnation. At only $5.95 for unlimited distribution, the tools and price for what they offer is unbeatable.

How easy is it to set up?
All you have to do is set up a free reverbnation page for your music or band and your account will ask you if you would like to automatically upgrade your account by adding options like: press kits, a music app, newsletters, distribution, etc. All you have to do is opt in for the press kit which you can cancel at any time should you feel your not using it or still not ready.

What are the advantages of the RPK (Reverbnation Press Kit)
As a bonus, you can opt in for opportunities to gain exposure for your music through Reverbnation and they will email you opportunities to submit your press kit to. I also like the way they automatically include all your goodies in very few clicks.

When do I need to get one?
You should get a press kit after your music is at its best, its available for sale, and you have built a strong and engaged fan base.

Here’s a page where you can get more Info when your ready:

Justin J Grant

Behind The Music with Irish Singer Songwriter Justin J Grant

Behind the music Justin J Grant - Jacqueline JaxJustin J Grant is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Newry, N.Ireland. He has been performing in public from the age of fifteen, formerly as the front man of a locally acclaimed six piece band and currently as a solo artist playing all over Ireland and the U.K. Justin is a prolific writer and has an extensive Catalogue of wonderful melody driven contemporary songs of which fourteen are presented on his debut album, “  Break The Wing  “

INTERVIEW

JAX: Where were you born and where have you been living for the past 10 years.
JUSTIN: I was born in Newry Co Down N. Ireland,  I got interested in music from an early age.  And then people told me I could sing I just thought I was making a funny noise,  So I ended up playing guitar and singing in bands.  In 2001 I had ideas about songs of my own so I bought a cheap ticket & headed for the bright lights of Belfast City.  And I am very grateful I have had the chance to enlighten a few peoples ear holes along the way with my music.


JAX: Why do you create music and what do you most love about it?
JUSTIN: Well I had nothing else to do,  I started out as a guitar player back then I had to sing well because nobody else wanted to sing my songs, And I had a natural talent for the guitar because my father was a musician he tought me how to play and I really liked the idea about that. My passion for song blossomed on the back of a love for an eclectic range of stars like The Mamas and Papas,  The Beatles, David Bowie, Tim Hardin, Glen Campbell, Hendrix, Cream, And I used to watch people playing on stage and thought wow hey one day that could be me and now it appears to be that way,  Weather people like it or not is neither here nor there.  So I just started writing more songs working with my then producer/ manager Andy Cowan Martin where we shuffled songs about,  From some scratchy beginnings we have ended up with what I think is a really great album of which I am very proud.


JAX: Do you play gigs, tour or primarily share your music online? And are there any challenges to what your doing?
JUSTIN: Last year I played live across Ireland and England and we have picked up radio play in Japan, Nashville, Spain, Holland, UK Ireland and number 10 in the UK Country charts. At the moment I am working on new material writing recording demos that sort of thing,   All I can do is put my music out there and hope people like it,  And if they don’t well I can always do a runner Hee Hee. Well the internet is taking over in a big so I am afraid to say I will have to let peter the carrier pigeon go,…But for the time being if any one wants to get a hold of my music then go to I tunes/ Amazon & just squirt Justin J Grant “Break the Wing”  into the web & I shall pop up.


JAX: Name 3 words that best describe you and tell me why.
JUSTIN: Happy Hoppy Floppy   Well because I am a happy kinda guy,  Hoppy because I cant sit down always on the go go me & floppy because I have long-lasting floppy disk hair.


JAX:  What’s the music scene like where you are? Best places to go to hear music?
JUSTIN: Ireland has always had a great music scene,  My best venues for original music would have to be the Spirit Store in Dundalk, Amplified Bar in Newry & The Black Box Belfast.

JAX: Tell me about your best music moment.
JUSTIN: My best music moment would have to be back in 2008 watching Glen Campbell perform  Wichita Lineman Live at the waterfront hall in Belfast,  tugs at my heart and soul every time.

Hey I have had a few great moments in my life and this is one of them,  Thanks for having me. I am humbled XO

In addition, A.V.A Live Radio also provides a mentoring program where artists give back to other artists, educational resources on the music industry as well as personal and business branding from industry professionals in our community to those who need help thru our Game Changers Series interviews.

I am so excited to see you all become a part of our A.V.A Live Radio Team.RISKS AND CHALLENGES

Despite our limitations, we have been doing it successfully for 3 solid seasons and are setting a first goal to triple our programming. if we reach our fund raising goal to have the proper resources to support it.

OUR COMMUNITY
Our active community of creative people from all around the world is expanding every day but keeping all these amazing free services going takes equipment and resources.

Marketing Tip of the Day: Internet Radio Tour

Radio tour

Jacqueline_jax_Video_liveI was just speaking with one of our music community members out in Canada and we were planning a strategy to help him break into the U.S Music market using internet radio like A.V.A Live Radio. Although you may not be aware there are thousands of internet radio shows bursting at the seems with online listeners seeking everything from new indie music in specific genres, to how to be a song writer, to becoming a better Mom. The topics are vastly diversified and new content is being created and consumed every hour. Many of the stations/ podcasts have thousands, or even millions of listeners and the content they create stays available online for ever mapping out it’s own piece of internet real estate.

As an artist, you want to take advantage of that open avenue that can deliver your music right into the ears of listeners within your sub-niche. Not only that, but most of the shows have web sites, like we do here at A.V.A Live Radio that will host your photo’s and buy music links for the listeners to easily find you. I talk alot about how to do this, what to look for when selecting stations and how to approach them in the A.V.A Musicians Workbook coming out this fall. Be sure to get on the mailing list so you won’t miss the launch of this amazing workbook that walks you through the step by step daily routines of developing your music career and building a strong, supportive and engaged fan base. Signup now: http://eepurl.com/vKMbX

Who is ready to plan an internet radio tour?
You should only spend time on promotional things once you have the following things in order:
1) Your music is perfect with quality recordings and at least one album released and ready to sell.
2) You have a smashing web site with your own .com for people to visit

3) You have set up at least one social media account in your band name (ie. twitter, facebook, reverbnation)
4) You have a mailing list established with a service like (wordpress or mail chimp) and the signup is front and center on your web site and all social media pages.
5) You have carefully thought out what you would like to say and how you can quickly and easily deliver your message when you are interviewed. This should include who you are as an artists, your latest news, upcoming tour, video or music release and your web site/ social media pages.

I hope I got you thinking more about internet radio and why it is an important avenue for you to consider, cultivate and add to your PR schedule. – Jacqueline Jax (Host of www.AvALiveRadio.com)

New Music Monday Live Music Spin with Laurie Cairns

Laurie_cairnsListen in to the show LIVE now: www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2013/07/09/new-music-monday-live-music-spin-with-laurie-cairns

New-Music-Monday-Jacqueline
Join host Jacqueline Jax as she speaks with Singer Songwriter Laurie Cairns about her journey in the business, influences, inspiration, and writing her music.  With a live music spin from artists all over the world.

Connect with Laurie on Twitter: @8outta9

Music From: Iridesense, Ryan Stone, and Jesse Potter.

Get to know the artist:
Born with a powerhouse voice, Laurie Cairns began singing at eight years of age when she joined the church choir in her hometown of Aurora, Illinois. As she grew older, she became aware of different styles of music.  “The first time I heard Barbara Streisand’s voice, I was in awe. I had never heard anything like that. It was then that I knew that music could touch the soul.”  In high school, Cairns began listening to 60′s rock and 70′s funk, which became part of her own sound. Soon, “The Laurie Cairns Band” was born and performing throughout the Chicagoland area. She later became lead vocalist for groups such as Counterpoint, bliss and Cobalt and performed at many clubs in Chicago including the Cue Club, The Beat Kitchen and Schuba’s. During this time Cairns showcased her versatility through interpretations of Patsy Cline, Melissa Etheridge, No Doubt and Heart and even gave Muddy Waters a run for his money on her rendition of Hoochie Coochie Man.  Motivated by other women performers, Cairns is moved by the pain in Etta James voice, loves the power of Kelly Clarkson’s rock and is inspired by Sheryl Crow’s storytelling.  “I have such an eclectic taste in music, but one constant is my interest in the human experience.”  Now working on a solo career Cairns is recording her own music. She writes about finding love on her terms and accepting change, letting love in and knowing when to let go. Songs such as As I Am and You Don’t Know open her heart up to the audience and leave her vulnerable to scrutiny.  “Everyone has their own heartbreak and their own joy. I feel fortunate that I am able to share mine through my music.”  Cairns would love to one day work with producers such as Glen Ballard and Robert John “Mutt” Lange. “Music for me has always been about following my heart and doing what I love. It is a passion that I will forever pursue.” Cairns manages to say it best with her own lyrics…”Sweet , sweet morning. Morning’s on its way.”

Apple Launches Iphone Music

20130618-001020.jpg

by Pete Pachal June 2013
Apple is diving into streaming music with a new service called iTunes Radio, the company announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco today.

Similar to Pandora, iTunes Radio will create themed Internet radio stations based on specific songs, and Apple provides “featured” radio stations as well. The service will be free for users, although it’s supported by ads. However, if you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you’ll get it ad-free.

SEE ALSO: 10 Better Alternatives to Your iPhone’s Native Apps
iTunes Radio will be available on iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) running iOS 7 as well as the iTunes on the Mac or PC. Some of the pre-packaged stations include Summer Songs and Trending on Twitter (which appears to pull in songs from Twitter Music).

Apple made deals with the major music labels for iTunes Radio in the last few weeks, reports indicate. The company first signed on Universal Music, then Warner and finally Sony just a few days ago.

Although streaming music services have been around for a long time, Apple appeared content to remain the dominant player in music downloads, offering only only an extremely basic “Radio” section of the iTunes app for online radio stations. However, user habits are shifting away from iTunes toward streaming services, market statistics reveal, and Apple clearly decided it need to compete in the space.

1. Three things that would surprise you about me.
My favorite kind of food is Korean BBQ.. there’s something about the taste that I really enjoy. I’m a big Lost fan and pretty much anything by JJ Abrams. I used to work as a baggage handler at Toronto international Airport and really enjoyed being around planes.

2. I have mixed feelings about the music business.
On one hand I feel like there are so many ways to connect with your fans, produce videos, record and get out there. At the same time I feel that consumers feel overwhelmed and saturated with all the music that is out there that the perceived value of music has dropped. I used to enjoy buying albums and enjoying the entire project as opposed to just buying the songs that you hear on the radio. The good news is that I feel like I am getting closer each day at figuring out how to connect with people and help them experience my music for it’s lyrical content and the stories associated with them.

3. Three words that describe you.
Fun, Bright, and Pumped. Life is too short to take yourself serious and humor is a great way to connect with people. My lyrics and music will also have a bright positive message in it.. it will make you feel better and I hope that I can make people excited about their selves and the relationships around them.

4. Single most influential is a tough one.. but I would have to say it’s Billy Joel. I love his songwriting, energy, and the variety of themes he has written about.

 5. My goals are to continue writing songs that people will use as the soundtrack of there lives. My songs will be heard by a lot more people across the country and the world. Besides currently writing, recording, and touring I also run a music school called the Rock Zone and I help other budding songwriters learn the process of being developing artists. As of July I am relocating to Nashville and I have promised myself to be open to learning new things there.

New Music Monday Live Music Spin with Luis Alas

New-Music-Monday-Jacqueline
Join host Jacqueline Jax as she speaks with talented sax musician Luis Alas. Discussing the music business, being true to your self and shooting for the life you love. With a live music spin from artists all over the world.

Connect with Luis Alas and mention heard him on A.V.A Live Radio for a free download..
Twitter : @luisajazz    www.facebook.com/LuisAJazz

1) What are three things that would surprise us to know about you?
Luis Alas: I worked for most of my professional career as a law enforcement officer, including as a Federal Air Marshal after 9/11.
2) How do you feel about the music business today?
Luis Alas: I this is a very interesting time for music. Between social media, online radio and download technology, when was it possible for an unsigned artist to get recognized and listened to in Asia, Europe and beyond? Because people no longer have to buy a complete album, now artists need to make every song count. It is exciting time indeed.
3) Name three words that best describe you and why?
Luis Alas: Tenacious: If I believe in something, I will not quit till I get the outcome I want or need. I will work as hard as it takes and do what ever it takes to make it happen.
 Passionate: I don’t think anyone in this industry can do what they do without being passionate about music.
 Romantic: Though I love funk and soul, I absolutely love romantic music. It is music that allows me to express feelings in the most profound ways.
4) Who was the single most influential person in your music journey so far?
Luis Alas: Wow, this is a tough one. There have been so many that have had a deep impact but I will boil it down to two. My wife and friend Johnny Holliday, both believed in me that I could be a solo artist. To my wife I have always been the greatest sax player, she will listen to Koz or Marienthal and say your style is different than theirs but just as good.
My buddy Johnniw Holliday a fellow musician which I have worked with for over 20 years. After playing for him at the Jazz In The Gardens Festival in Miami, he told me; “I’m sorry, but I won’t be hiring you any more as my sax player.” when I asked why, he replied; “You need to be on stage on your own as a solo artist.. With you I will never play sax on stage cause you out play me. Even as an artist, you out perform me. You need to go solo so hopefully I can open for you some day.” and that is the day I started working on becoming a solo artist.
5) What are your music plans for the future? Where would you like to be in 2 years?
Luis Alas: I hope to have my album out this fall at the latest, and hope that the rest of the album is received like the single. If it is, I hope to tour. Within two years, I hope to have a better organized management team, be touring and working on album #2.

Also With Music From: Johnny Juarez, Joshua Stedman, Jesse Potter, Shauna Sweeney, Lani Nash, Monte Rosa, Underground Junction and Ryan Stone.

Marketing Tip of The Day: Ideas For Selling More Music Online

Marketing Tip of The Day: Ideas For Selling More Music Online
In today’s music world, it’s just not enough to create great music. You have to get moving on your promotion just like any business owner. Here are some ways to generate more music sales long term with a little work and a ton of creativity.

20130315-004114.jpg
1) Create an iTunes playlist : iTunes allows you to publish playlists that you create. The playlists can be rated from 1-5 stars by other customers, and top rated playlists appear on the page for every album that has a song in the playlist. If your songs are included in a top ranking playlist, you will definitely see more sales.

20130315-004726.jpg
2) Video Bloggers : youtube bloggers are always seeking royalty free music or permission to play songs in their videos. The key is to find video bloggers who have millions of fans matching your target audience. Offer a page with one free download (provided they include a link to purchase) and a list of songs for sale that you are willing to let them play on their videos. They will not only love to have great music for their videos, you’ll certainly be getting a ton of awesome exposure for the life of the video.

20130315-005422.jpg
3) Movies and Commercials: Have you ever seen a movie or commercial that isn’t filled with music? You wouldn’t believe how many movies and commercials get made every year and its easier than you think to introduce yourself to a new production company or get listed with an agent. DIY: Subscribe to our station (www.AvALiveRadio.com) and get your music played on New Music Monday and join LinkedIn and start connecting with groups in the movie biz. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you may find.

20130315-005711.jpg
4) Compilation Projects: I have spoken with tons of producers who are making a killing with compilation CDs. They get music from different artists and promote the CD online by genre such as Dance Party or Country Mix. The CDs not only sell thousands of copies, all the artists on them gain fans individually and sell additional tracks.

I hope these tips are helpful and get you thinking about creative ways to up your exposure and music sales. If you think of a great idea, leave it in the comment section below. I would love to hear it.

This is Jacqueline Jax from AvALiveRadio.com with my online marketing tip of the day. Be sure to subscribe to our channel at www.youtube.com/AvALiveRadio and also our main web site for more helpful tips delivered right to your email. Thanks for reading.
