Recording an amazing album is wonderful and all but if nobody gets a chance to hear it it kind of defeats the purpose. I had a chat with Ed Dorsey of THEDORSEYTOUCH, a promotions company who, well promotes music and Ed explains the importance of promotions in this Web 2.0 world, why iTunes is not necessarily a great thing for the music business and what bands need to do to make themselves heard.
Ed Dorsey: I have over 25 years of experience working, in one capacity or another, in the music business. I began when I was 16 years old, selling records in an underground record shop in Indiana.
RRR: Do you manage artists or are you primarily a promotions company?
ED: While I have managed artists during my career, I am first and foremost a record promoter. THEDORSEYTOUCH is a promotions company.
