Major Changes Coming to Indie Music Bus

Major Changes Why major changes? It's time to make Indie Music Bus more than just a learning, music sharing and interview platform.

These new service types will make Indie Music Bus more useful on a daily/weekly basis. Addition: 5/24/18 One of the difficulties I have is getting in [...]

Advice from Whiplash PR & Management @Whiplashpr

Whiplash PR & Management   Introduction How do I take over 20 years of experience and mistakes and boil everything down to a blog. I started to think about where I spend most of my time these days when discussing press campaigns with potential clients and it all comes down to education. Most bands really have no idea what a publicist does and when they should hire a publicist. Plus, there are blogs on every site imaginable telling you what you HAVE to do to [...]
