    ...As for promotion...I've found these sites useful, to an extent (mainly for meeting other like-minded composers). I've found that the traditional route of assailing physical radio stations with a quality product (the presentation of your CD - the photography - is excellent) and a quality flyer/bio very worthwhile (although some stations will lazily only play the first track and that's it). And as you know, gigging is the best way to promote, entertain and sell your music; contacting composers societies, music lover's groups who stage regular concerts etc. is a great way to network and to 'get it out there'. Good luck and thank-you for your music...O, & here's a link to some of my solo piano compositions if you're interested: http://www.last.fm/music/Hugh%2520O%27Shea?ac=hugh%20o%27sh Best Regards, Hugh O'Shea PS take a look @ http://solopianoradio.com/submissions.htm too.

    Hey Alex, just listened to some of the previews from your CD @ CD Baby...I was particularly struck by Paradise Lost - quite agitated with a rolling rhythmic momentum (if that makes sense). To me it sounded more 'classical' than the other previews I listened to (yuk - labels). I'll definitely be buying your CD. You have a nice touch too. BTW was it a midi recording? It was hard to tell from the previews...to me it sounded too high in the treble range and sharp...although that could be the MP3 bit rate from CD Baby (I hope I haven't offended you...being a musician you know the pleasure of working with a knowledgeable engineer and a high-end grand in a good studio)...

    One good way to get your CD in the radio stations is first upload your songs on here...then tag them appropriately...or get other listeners to do that....good luck!

Descrizione

I was born in Warner Robbins, Ga in 1971 to a musical family. A military brat, I've lived in New York, Mississippi, Florida, Hawaii, but most of my adult life in Georgia. I felt ungrounded having moved every year of my life, so I sought refuge in music.

My mentor and brother Adam brought me into this magical world of semi-insane characters AKA musicians. Years of ups and downs musically trying to work with bands/duos, I found myself performing solo at a restaurant in Vinings, Ga. After three years of performing and staring at a Kawaii logo, my life started- I met my wife.
During these years I composed these piano musical works and released the cd in 1997 called "Watching You ~ Watching Me". This is a second release of the music, but digitally mixed and remastered.

I now have a beautiful daughter, wife, and great friends. I perform in a cover band locally and enjoy the interaction of other musicians. I also have a recording studio in West Ga and try to help other artists realise their dreams.

I have been lost, confused, depressed, betrayed, but now I'm found, focussed, joyful, and learning to trust again.
Whenever I've set goals, they were usually too high for me to reach by myself. If it weren't for friends and their giving, I would not be typing this. I've heard that perseverance is all you need to succeed, but whenever a desire becomes an obsession, the dream will elude you. So I dream, yet live. I go after my goals, but don't let them rule over me. A dream becomes reality when a dreamer stops dreaming.


My philosophy...
Art is supposed to be shared. I believe an Artist is defined as (obviously) -
One who CREATES art, but is willing to share it with others, open to criticism.
This is what helps define his abilities and challenges him to be better than average.

He must be willing to explore, innovate, develop, and complete the piece.
The time it takes to develop a work is up to the Artist, but he should not hide his work in fear of the Critics & yes "I am my worse critic".
So I decided to get over myself and share my "art".
I truly hope you enjoy it.
