    Hi guys.

    I thought this would be a good place to reach out to.

    So I have been on my brothers case for years to let me promote him and try getting him some kind of record deal. I personally think he is amazing. There are no artist like him out there, his style is totally unique. But I would say that.

    He has got like 50 great tunes on his computer that he has made over the years. The thing with our Mark is that is is so self critical that he does not like to show people his music. Which pisses me off to no end. So I dangled a carrot infront of his nose and managed to get him on board.

    Today we have just been messing around in the studio getting him in the mood for things. We aint doing anything fancy. Just some nice simple videos of him playing his stuff raw. Just so that there is something out there. At a later stage I plan on bringing in a producer to make some quality videos, but for now were just using some video effects on my iPhone.

    So I'm here asking 2 things, 1st would be for you to take 5 and go check out the couple of videos we put on youtube. If you dont like the music style then thats fine, but dont hate on it just because you only like Techno music or something.

    The 2nd thing is, if anyone who does youtube would like to get involved in some promotion efforts then that would be epic. I know how to return a favour.

    Yeah the channel needs a lot of work, I plan on doing that over the next day or 2. But the main focus for me today was keeping the media flowing and getting as much stuff recorded as possible.

    Thanks guys.

    He's pretty good! Got that "typical" style thats doing the rounds big time at the moment.

    He should defo persue it! If you want to get some demo tapes on the desk of some producers, that will listen to them instead of just slapped to one side, hit me up.

    I used to do quite a bit of music in my younger days, indie stuff, so have a few contacts, couple of which are fairly big hitters (wont say who here), one of them related to the family.

    Thanks mate. We are gonna redo those videos that are currently up cos the sound is well low. ButI just wanted to get something on youtube to show Mark. When my mate finishes work today, I gonna get on his case to amp up the volume and tidy up the videos on his desktop.

    Then its just a case of adding and keep adding. You should hear some of his other stuff man. Its class, cant wait to have it all up on YT :)

    But yeah, I will deffo be getting in touch as soon as the decent quality stuff is available.

    Sounds good! Keep me posted, I've bookmarked his page so will check up on it over next couple days.

    As for his self-critisism, its normal, I was the same for ages, then finally I let people hear. My wife is the same too, incredible singer, but she gets embaressed or nervous, then she lets the sound come out and everyone is in awe. Unfortunatley she still hasn't properly overcome her's and won't let me promote her.

    Well I stopped over and listened. It's not really my style of music to be honest, however I can tell he has quite a bit of talent there. Just because it's not what I prefer doesn't mean I can't appreciate it and he is very good. I wish you guys luck and wanted to stop by to support him because I think to many times people worry about what others are going to think or say about something instead of just doing it. I completely understand his fear and being hyper-self-critical as I can be the same way. Tell him do NOT give up and you can even show him this post, since as I said before it's not my style of music. But even still I found myself kinda going along with it. It has a great easy going smooth feel to it. I'll stop rambling now I just hate when people don't share their talents for fear of what others might say and wanted to show some support/love in anyway I could so that your brother doesn't hide his own talents and gifts. Have a great day.

    I was checking this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfAaRRCxYQc and my sister-in-law from the other room heard it and was like "who's this ? I like it !"...and now she's listening to it on her laptop.

    Your brother is talented, I think he will eventually make it big coz the songs are great and like you said, his style is unique.

    P.S. congrats for becoming a Jr. Exec. I read some of your posts and I think you are a stand up guy and you deserve it!

    He's pretty good man. Dunno about making it big good, but definately should be able to make a bit of money through downloads and develop enough of a fan base to at least to do small to medium sized paid gigs.

    Im going to get shit loads of stuff up tonight. Im just gonna throw all his mp3's on a Facebook page so people can hear everything. Then work though adding videos on the fly.

    I'm paying for him to spend a week in the recording studio close to where we live. So, watch this space :)

    Great stuff G-S-T, but as it seems the only thing that I can do is give you my view and thumbs up on the videos. When I first opened this thread I thought that your brother is in some electronic music involved. I could help you in that because I know lot's of producers and media buying houses in that part of the music industry. But as I see it it's nothing similar to that type of music and thus I can't help you :(

    p.s. congrat's to jr.vip ;)
