Good Evening,
I am helping promote Robert Schwartzman of the band Rooney. He is going completely off the grid in terms of record labels and producing his own music. I was wondering if you would listen to his music and perhaps interview him for your blog?
His website is:

From his facebook page:
“I am promoting my album, Double Capricorn, completely independently and would love your guidance. If you are a journalist, blogger, writer of school articles, or anyone with a public voice, and if you’d like to interview me about my upcoming west coast tour or my album, I am here for you. You can email me questions at Thank you. Talk to you soon.”

Hi HearYa,

She’s traveled 7 continents, released 6 albums, remained unsigned for 30 years and made 2012 Grammy Awards history. Last week, Linda Chorney walked the Grammy red carpet as is the first completely independent, DIY artist to ever be nominated at the award’s show.
Linda’s self-produced “Emotional Jukebox” was nominated for Best Americana Album of 2012. Her nomination stirred up controversy, with some accusing her of gaming the system, while serving as a symbol of musical inspiration to others. Check out one of the album’s standout tracks, “Cherries,” here:

We’d love to send you a review copy “Emotional Jukebox” for your critique. Please respond with your shipping address and I will send you a copy of the album.

Best, Cash

Hello there HearYa,

Your Blog has kept me going on some awesome music for some very awesome hours. I would like to thank you! My name is John Villadelgado and I am representing my Portland, Oregon based band Cunning Wolves. I would like to ask for your honest opinion about our music and what we are doing. We are currently doing an open mic tour along the west coast and just trying to get our music out there. We are basically doing everything on our own and we are in need of press to get us off the ground. Thank you for your time I will include links of our music, vids, etc. Hope to hear from you in any way!

I am a big fan of your blog. A piece of my work…

Can you track down Elvis Perkins and find out what the hell is up with him? His website(s) and Wiki page haven’t been updated in ages, and there’s a lot of dead-end links on those pages. It’s as if he’s fallen off the planet. I love his music, but really can’t find ANYTHING about him online any more recent than 2010. I’m actually concerned

Thanks in advance, if you can help!

Hey there! Even though it’s a long shot I guess I want to submit the music my big brother & I make since reading through your blog, I really ‘got’ everything you said about the music you write about. I could really relate. Anywho. Thanks for recommending such great groups that I wouldn’t have come to known through any other way.
Here’s the link to my website if you wanna check it out.. our recordings can be found there for free! In the meantime we’re playing around Los Angeles (The Silverlake Lounge, Bar Lubitsch, and The House of Blues).
Thanks for listening!
