Home to the artist collective known as 11 Grooves, Lawson-Montgomery, brings under its umbrella a selection of talent that sets the stage for a new dynamic in Southern music. The mission of the label is to deliver quality and meaningful products to meet the needs and wants of global consumers.

11 Grooves was founded in 2000 by Marc Law a native of Duplin County, NC. As a long time fan of hip hop music, he began his career kicking verses with friends and on underground tracks in various studios. He is also a member of the Tsunami Gang, a group comprised of artists on the 11 Entertainment label.

Ever wondered why some super talented musicians don’t get the fanbase and recognition they ‘deserve’, while other not as talented musicians get a lot more exposure and seen in all the right places? Well while there could be a number of different reasons for this, one of the most common is that successful person’s ability to handle the business side of the music industry. More specifically, they probably know how to market themselves well.

 

Music marketing is that key piece to the puzzle many musicians simply never put into effect – Tweet This.

 

It’s because of this that many don’t get where they could have otherwise been, and why they struggle to make sales, get gigs, and generally move their music career forward in any meaningful way.

 

The good news however, is if you’re willing to put in the work, it’s possible to learn how to market your music. There are plenty of guides which show you how to do that on both Music Think Tank and on my site Music Industry How To.

 

Before you learn specific tactics for marketing your music though, it’s important you get a good idea of what music marketing is and isn’t. There are a lot of common misconceptions about this among musicians, so have a read of the below to see some truths about what it all entails. I truly hope it gets you on the right path when it comes to how you approach the promotion of your music.

Cordula Davis

Singer/Songwriter Cordula hails from the DMV and brings with her a wealth of musical and performance training, creating a polished yet very natural presence on stage and in her personal engagements with her fans.  Cordula’s new single “My Ride,” on her own imprint Music’z Therapy distributed via Universal/Fontana, is set for release Tuesday, September 10, 2013 and is sure to be a fan favorite.  Already capturing radio and music executives’ attention and energy, Cordula is positioned to be one of the breakout artist of the year.

A stunning natural beauty, Cordula’s music overshadows that aspect as she effortlessly weaves between the husky low alto and sharp soprano scales, presenting a musical adventure not to be missed.  Ok, so I have to confess that I am a fan of great music and perhaps I sway to the less journalistic in my description but hey, this IS The H.Y.P.E. Magazine which means, “How You Perceive Everything” and MY perception is that no matter how great her look…Cordula’s SOUND can be likened to one of the most pleasurable “ooohhhh DAMN!” moments you have ever had in your life.
Artistic talent not withstanding, Cordula is also the subject of one of the greatest quandaries in the music business right now. She is a medical doctor who also teaches up and coming medical doctors, that sings like a nightingale and desires to let the music take over and be her vehicle of expression.  My mom always said being a doctor was as good as being president, but Cordula’s heart had been with music and performing since she was three years old, when she began tap and ballet training.

Managed by Robert Terell aka “The Official Deal Maker” and one of the shining diamonds of his Wealth Nation Entertainment roster, Cordula has been brought along at just the right pace to be an impact on the music industry when it is the most quiet as regards real artistry.  Wealth Nation Entertainment guided and orchestrated Cordula’s label situation with Universal/Fontana, and her imprint Music’z Therapy is not only to be a vehicle for her music, but also a home for other artists in the future.
