What to do if you're a rock producer?
      16/04/12 07:43 PM
Basically I'm in a strange situation - I am writing and recording a bunch of rock songs however normally you'd get out there in a band situation and promote the tunes. I on the other hand am too old and too deaf to want to go down this route. So say I've got a bunch of quality hard rock tunes (Korn/ Smashing Pumpkins/ Evanescence is the style) recorded where the hell do I go from here.

One option I've been thinking of is to give my songs to a band who can get the fame and do all the gigging, obviously this means my cut is gonna be reduced but I don't see any alternatives really.

Anyone got any ideas?? Even I stuck my tunes on Bandcamp, marketing and promotion will be a massive headache as there will be no live gigs.
