The Rock and Roll Report Talks to Ed Dorsey of Promotions Company THEDORSEYTOUCH

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.

Rock and Roll Report: How long have you (Ed) been in the business?

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.
