Hardly anybody buys albums any more, yet I decide to "break in" with a four-album narrative. Then I make a web site and a blog for it. The only reason this doesn't seem like a sad ego-trip is because I'm not selling anything. All profits from the music will go into a charitable gift trust. I am fortunate in my life and want to give something back. That sounds like ego too, but if you really believe in your ideas, and those ideas might help in even the smallest way, then just do it.
I hired a PR/radio firm to help get some interest in the first album. As you can imagine, my phone isn't exactly blowing up. But we'll see. In any case, they advised that I should release the albums 30-60 days apart. That makes sense from a marketing perspective, but if you like Part 1 you might not want to wait five months to hear the ending.
Do you think I should release the other albums sooner, and, if so, how soon? If anyone's out there, please post!
Let love commence,
