Indie Music Bus™ Interview Excerpt

Could you please describe your next record to the readers in terms of clothing?  I mean, is it a hoodie, a turtleneck, leather shorts & what colour is it?  When's it out and where can we all get one?
Ha ha ha ha I have to admit, I have never been asked to describe music in such a way. I mean, music for me is a sound that generates emotions, images, evokes memories etc. I rarely connect any of these with clothing. But to quote Forest Gump, "You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes. Where they are going, where they've been.. my music would definitely have worn-out shoes. ?? "I'm running, I'm running" ?? lol Read More

Review of David Geftakys Music via Tom Wardman's Music Reviews

"Games We Play" was indeed the first track I listened to, and I loved the acoustic, gentle intro. This was complimented well by the soft use of drums, which I found to be something different and a feature not used much in many pop songs of today. The tone of the vocals was beautiful and helped create a soothing atmosphere alongside the soft instrumentation. I particularly liked the use of backing vocals in the chorus and 2nd verse; some of these acted as a pedal at times, which I thought was fantastic, and they were also in perfect harmony with lead vocalist. I also loved the high notes of the lead vocalist. These were at perfect pitch and sounded beautiful. What I liked most of this song was the lyrics of "I'm Running" incorporated intertwined vocals. Furthermore, there was also polyphony incorporated with these vocals as the instrumentation dies away in middle section. Similarly, I thought it was fantastic when the instrumentation faded into nothing to end the song in a peaceful manner. Read More

Red Dragon Records will award the Indie Music Bus Act of the Year winner with:

- Radio and/or TV spots
- 2 Spots on "The Renaissance" compilation

The Renaissance brand was created back in October as an idea to allow and facilitate multiple bands fan bases to interact and discover each others music. Initially we plan two albums per year but this may increase to four.

The '1st Renaissance' Album which is to be released on the 7th January 2013 consists of 22 tracks from 22 artists. 10 of which where picked by the Red Dragon Records and its affiliates and the final 12 picked through a public voting competition. We received in excess of 2,000 submissions for the first album so choice was very difficult to narrow it down to the final 22.

The album is to be promoted through radio, TV, written and digital media for up to 3 months after the release date. All promotion international, our contacts span the globes media industry and grow daily to incorporate every means possible to acquire even one more fan somewhere in the world!

We were the first people to propose the idea of this album and will capitalize on our rapid growth to create a long lived and world recognized brand for the showcasing of the best independent musicians and labels products. Proceeds from any sales of the album through whole or part sale are split 50/50 with the label and the musician/band for as long as the album is available. Physical CD's are also produced and will be sold and distributed worldwide. The label takes no expenses prior to paying out and subject to payment from the distribution service, payments are made within 4 weeks of the label receiving the funds.
