Attention all artists, band management, and promoters:
So, you didn’t you share our review?
Our experienced writers need at least an hour (usually far longer) to handcraft a masterful music review for you.
We insist all our reviews are made-to-measure (not cobbled!) Didn’t you notice that we do not cut-and-paste? Of course, our reviews are thoroughly researched (in other words, we listened to your sounds before we gave an opinion.) We took time & care to sculpt an entertaining, interesting, and informative read for army of avid readers.
Having written a review of your music, we then share it with thousands more music fans that we collected on our socials…
Let’s recap: we wrote an honest non-regurgitated review for you — then we championed it too!
So what do we get for all that work- other than a sense of great pride and satsifaction?
Well, the truth is that the only “catch” is a mutual understanding (between you and us) that you are doing the “right thing” and you share the review far-and-wide so we might (together) spread the word about you and collect you more fans…
So, what does it mean to us if you don‘t spend two seconds sharing our finely crafted words?
If you don’t share, it can only mean one of three things:
1: You didn’t approve of our review. That’s possible. Our mission is to be objective & impartial. So it’s conceivable you thought our review was a bit harsh. Is it because we are being too honest? Yes, maybe it is. OK, we get it! But, please remember, we are an independent publication and will always provide our readers with an accurate assessment of your work.
So, it’s either that or:
2: You didn’t appreciate the effort we spent on writing the review — which is why you didn’t think it was worth even a second sharing our finely-crafted words!
3: It means you decided not to promote your work — but that’s a bit irrational isn’t it? It’s also, dare we suggest, a bit conceited. But, hey-ho!
But, deep down, we think you know that it’s not nice to be under-appreciated, is it? You must know how it feels, because you’re either an artist or you represent an artist… How does it feel when your audience doesn’t care?
You will notice that there are no annoying ads in RAW RAMP…
There are no distractions. There is no paywall. There are no misdirects. There is no extraneous clutter. Readers view your reviews freely, cleanly, and without any impediment.
Is that the reason you disrespect us? Is it because we are commited to running a commercial-free site for our readers? If that’s the case, we’ll start to run adverts and we’ll setup pay-walls in future… perhaps thats the only way to gain your respect!
You have to wonder how much longer we can survive as an independent publication if we don’t get support from artists, managers, and promoters. How long will we be able to share your sounds on our non-commercial (ad-free) platform — unless we get your support?
Think about it: either you spend a second sharing our fine words or you will see yet another quality independent music publication go down the plughole. It’s a choice that you make in seconds.
