  Ready :)

Hi Friends,

WE DID IT!! The new Atomic Skunk album, Alchemy reached its pledge goal and has been fully funded by you Atomic Skunk fans! Last week I sent the tracks off for mastering, received them back a few days ago and have been listening non-stop. It sounds AWESOME :)

Be a part of the NEW Atomic Skunk album! 

Dear Friends,
I'm very excited to announce that I'm teaming up with Pledge Music in anticipation of the release of my new album, the 3rd Atomic Skunk album. The tracks are finished and I'm starting the final mixes next week. But I still need to have the album mastered, have the artwork completed and then send the CD off for duplication, so I'm asking you to get involved in exchange for all kinds of cool stuff and exclusive access. Think of it as a CD pre-order on steroids, although even that…

Happy Autumn! 

  Dear Friends,

Thank you all once again for your kind words and healing vibes surrounding my surgery this last summer. I have healed well, my hair has grown back and I'm feeling great :)

I'm writing and producing a lot of music these days for Atomic Skunk album #3. You can listen to the rough mixes of some of these tracks by clicking on the image below:

I have also decided to release…


 Without a doubt, the single biggest factor that has allowed me to market my music and grow a fan base has been social media. As Ariel discusses in her book, the days of the static "brochure website" for a band or artist are over. In order to survive these days, an artist must reach out to his fans and engage them and the rise of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have created opportunities for musicians (and independent artists in particular) like never before.

I've been on top of this for a…Read more

MSI9W - Week 3: Optimize Your Website 

 On to week 3! This week is all about optimizing my website. I'm pretty familiar with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) from my internet marketing experience, and I've optimized many sites selling everything from web hosting to baby strollers, but I never really applied my SEO knowledge to my music website. Ariel covers 5 golden rules for band/artist website optimization. I'll go through each one and make sure I'm covered.

This is a great idea. I've added my pitch, both as my…Read more

MSI9W - Week 2: Creating The Perfect Pitch 

 OK, WEEK 2, "Creating the Perfect Pitch" here we go....... I feel like I'm back where I started, because this is how I first discovered Ariel in February of 2009. She was running an "elevator pitch" contest in which she was asking artists to create a 15 second pitch that offers a unique selling point to potential fans and provides them with some kind of compelling context to pique their interest. A great example of an effective elevator pitch is Leftover Salmon's "Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass." 3 words and…Read more

MSI9W - Week1: Goals 

 Goals. I have a hard time with this one. Musically, I tend to let things evolve organically, try to stay out of my own way and really allow my compositions to progress the way they want to. I may gently nudge and push things in a certain direction, but like my grandfather always used to say (insert thick Yiddish accent here): "Don't force it, you'll break it." So I don't and it's worked out well for me - musically that is. In terms of marketing and PR, I find that I have to put on a different hat and…Read more
