Thank you to those who have reciprocated links or shown appreciation or have supported me in some way throughout the years. This weekly newsletter not only takes many, many hours to compile, distribute, blog and promote, but also costs a monthly fee. As many have shared with me, it's both a valuable resource, and a treasured promotional tool. I started it, (in 2003), as a service to my musician clients and friends who, at the time, had few ways of promoting their shows, or a publication that would have an interest in writing about, or even listing their independent shows. It has grown since then to include much more, but its purpose remains the same - not to be a comprehensive list, but a way to help promote and advertise those artists and venues I'm familiar enough with to personally recommend, and whom I feel may need, and appreciate, what I do.
