How to get buzz in different cities

If you want to expand your music career beyond being local then you need to start doing shows in different cities. Start slow and expand throughout your state and then the surrounding states and then further out. Start with a city that is an hour or so away. Make sure you get your music in local stores in that area even if they are small chains that you will sell on consignment with. Next find a local venue to do a show at. Unless you have a large fan base already do not expect to do shows at large clubs. Do research and see if there are any local open mics or do not be afraid to be an opening act for another artist or band. Expect to play in small clubs and bars. After all that is set up call the local radio stations in that area. You will want to start with college stations and tell them that your music is in local stores and you are doing a show that week and see if they will play your song and maybe a possible interview on the station the day of the show. Now that you have all that in place call the local newspapers in that area. Try them all and tell them that your music is in the local stores, you are getting spins at whatever station and most important that you have a show coming up. Many times the newspapers will give you a mention or a possible interview just on the fact you are performing at a local venue. See how all of these steps work together? They are all important steps to get you to the next level. This will help expand your fan base with your music.

Artists and bands be sure to submit your music at these radio networks.
