Blog: Why Every Artist Needs a Website

Written by Tasha.

User Rating: / 3

A few years ago it was enough to have a MySpace or ReverbNation page, but in 2012 that’s just not gonna cut it anymore.  You need to own a domain name and a fully equipped website if you want to be taken seriously. Why? Simple, let me break it down.

If you haven’t noticed by now, everything is digital, especially music.  Years ago labels and companies wanted to see a physical press kit for each artist to get more familiar with them.  You had to present physical copies of mixtapes/albums or singles, portfolios and all. Now that we're in the "digital era", everything is internet driven. Physical presence will always be necessary, but internet presence trumps all. 

Your website is basically your press kit. It tells everything and visually shows what everyone needs to know. Your bio, music, videos, show dates, contact/booking info, etc. can all be found on your website. That's pretty much a press kit, right? Right. 

So with that said, invest in yourself. Buy your domain name (which only costs $10, if that), find a hosting service, and a designer. And PLEASE...get your site PROFESSIONALLY done. Keep in mind that everything you put out is a representation of you and your brand, so it needs to look good. 

If any of you have any questions pertaining to how to set up your site, or need advice, please email me.

'Think Like A Man' Takes #1 at The Box Office With $33 Million

Written by Tasha.

Congrats to the producers of "Think Like a Man"! The romantic comedy based on Steve Harvey's best selling book took the #1 spot at the box office this weekend, knocking out all of the competition, including "Hunger Games". I went to see it yesterday, and while I wouldn't classify it as a "great" movie, it was decent. Kevin Hart was funny as hell and all of the other actors did an great job. I'm just happy to see a black film back on top. It's been a while.

Here’s the remix to the lead single off the Think Like A Man soundtrack.  Dunson hops on it this time. By the way, the movie was pretty good. Not great, but good. Kevin Hart was hilarious. And Michael Ealy is FOINE.
