Canadian singer Cole Campbell is in Nashville for the next month working with me on a vocal mentoring program. Here we are having a great time cooking dinner together. What a fascinating young talent and joy to hang out with!
Facebook pages seem to be less and less useful these days for promoting music, especially when we’re talking about your average independent band that doesn’t want to drop a bunch of cash just to reach fans that have already liked their page.
But one aspect of a Facebook page that is definitely still useful is the Facebook Events feature. Since Facebook pages are public, you can use your Facebook Events to announce shows, get people excited, and encourage fans to share information about your band with their friends.

The lovely and talented Rachel Horter will be performing tonight at The Row, located at 110 Lyle Ave, Nashville. Come out for a nice meal and wonderful music. 8:00 PM.
I love it when past students come back to work with me; Marisa Chamberlain began to work with me in 2004. After a break from music she's ready to take out all the stops to pursue a career in music. I was so surprised at how much of what she learned so many years ago was still there. Her support was great, her breath control was right on and she sounded grrrrrreat!
Wanna guess what this little girl will be when she grows up? A drummer??? Check out this 6-year old drummer (you can see her as young as 5 on Youtube.)
May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!
Retired from the Navy and currently working for Department of Defense Dan Petty wants to move forward toward his life-long goal of writing and performing his own music. Listen to why Dan chose to work with Renee to polishing his singing voice.
Working with a band takes a lot of work. You can’t just pick out a few players, get on stage and expect smooth sailing. You have to be invested in these players. And beware, the best ones will get stolen from you. Listen as Tyler Bailey and I discuss working with bands in this YouTube video.
Silence is a great way to give your listener time to digest what you are saying. This is especially important when you sing or say something unexpected, like "cyber space fish" or to allow time for them to feel an emotional bond with the song.
