June 2022 Newsletter
The struggle to announce the fact we are in June 2022 is real! This is the moment the dreaded C word starts looping back around. No, I don’t mean Covid, but if the worldwide news is to be believed this may too. Everyone get prepping on those Christmas releases!
Let’s Get This Small-Town Touring Boom Started
Identity Music’s artists are hungry to get back into the live music scene, we couldn’t agree more. From small concerts to fete stands to pub performances, there seems to be stiff competition for tour & performance dates. Anyone who has landed a live performance event throughout the summer, that’s a job well done. Let Identity Music know about your upcoming event and provide a link to the ticket purchase and we will include it in our social media stories.

This Months Theme Is Community!
Community #1 – The Music Scene
Knowing who in your music scene can lead to great connections and mutual growth. This community is made up of similar-sized artists in genres that overlap with yours. This community will be full of potential collaborators, features and projects. Making frequent use of this community will expose you to new fans that are likely to stick around!
Community #2 – The Local One
Connecting to your local community can help boost an artist too! Not only will local, in-person contacts be stronger but you will also spread through word of mouth. So who should you be connecting with and why?
Even if you arent making similar music, local connections can help you form a network of information. They will know about local events or venues that suit you and your music! Supporting each other’s events could also be the boost you needed!
Get involved in the local creative scene! Actors, artists, sculptors, designers and poets. These connections will be aware of events in the community that may benefit you or even need your services. As a musician it’s always good to know a designer, illustrator or animator too, to help with your visual media!
Making professional connections will help too! Get in touch with your local venues, pubs, bars, clubs and stay in the loop! Other businesses that may be useful; printers, photographers, studios and even your local radio station.
Community #3 – YOUR Fans!
Don’t forget about the community that is created around you and your music. All these music fans have something very special in common, they all enjoy your work! Address these fans, show the love and listen to their feedback. Knowing how to keep these fans happy to key to growing it! This community is the one YOU have the most control over, so make the most of it!
Is It All About You?
Yes, there is plenty to gain from making community connections! However, you can’t just think about yourself. You want to support these communities and GIVE as much as you TAKE, helping support up-and-coming talent can be life-changing!

We are loving this track! Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time, or was it just the wrong person? Either way is falling out of love as heartfelt as falling in love. This song expresses just that! “Though it never happened… It tears us apart… apart” A sad, emo, tear-dropping love song.

Spotify Editorial Playlist Pitching Improved
Now, when you pitch your upcoming release for editorial playlists, you can link your social media profiles.
Why Is This So Good?
Providing Spotify with as much information when you pitch for playlists has only even improved an artist’s chance of getting a place on that all-important editorial placement. Curators get a wider understanding of your audience by checking out your social media platforms.
