    Hi. Love this place already - so much information, so much for me to learn. I'm mainly looking for ways to promote my band's music via Youtube. Not to directly make money from it, but to drive traffic to our site and our FB page. I guess there must be other musicians here as well. Would be great to hear from any of them.

    Cheers
    Dennis

    Hi, I'm a musician as well.
    Been releasing 1 single already.
    But that's just a fun project and manage to gain real fans from the techniques shared here.

    Hope you'll find your way too... :)

    Hi there I am also a musician. My I know what type of music you play. Some genres are just very hard to market. I create mostly metal and traditional mid-eastern music. This kind of music is a bit hard on the ear for new listeners and also a bit unappreciated. I know for sure it is very hard to become popular with such music but I play for the love of music and not to gain exposure and popularity.

    Hi Mrphuho from Deventer. Would it be impolite of me to ask why your reputation is at -1. Maybe you can help me avoid the same situation :) Groetjes Dennis

    Hi deedee1whoa [great name BTW]. Very nice that you ask about the band. Its mainly a cover band these days, though we had a few minor hits in NL some years back. So the videos I'm posting on YT are some cover songs performed live, actually at some pretty big festivals in NL. Without naming the band, you can find our live version of the Mumford & Sons song, Little Lion Man, on Youtube pretty easily. If you do a YT search for "Little lion Man", then its on the first page at about #16 - its the monochrome live video [sepia] and the song is performed with ukuleles. Sorry to be so cryptic, but its easy to spot. Thanks for asking - appreciate your interest.

    Cheers
    Dennis

    Thanks, Dennis. :) Interesting. I like that song, Little Lion Man, it was a hit back in the day.

    Found the video without a problem, & since you guys are performers the name is perfect for you.

    Your cover is fun, the voices are nice so just keep it up. I honestly wish you success! ;)
