Top 7 Socially Smart Indie Musicians!

Today’s post is a showcase of indie musicians who really “get it” about Social Media. One month ago, I posted this article > Let’s Stick Together: Share to Become 1 of “My Top 5 Socially Smart Indie Musicians”.

In it, I asked indie artists to help spread the word about my band‘s upcoming CD release, with the promise that I would post an article highlighting indie musicians who responded and whose music I genuinely respect.

It had to be Top 7!
Today I am making good on the promise. I had to change it from “Top 5″ to “Top 7″ due to the number of gratifying responses we’ve had to this idea. These artists are indeed “socially smart”, as well as being incredible PLAYERS. Please support them!

    I’m pleased to be following 5 of these people on Twitter & Fb and you are right on….will follow the other 2 as well :-)

  4. Tracy Ready says:

    Thanks David… it was a “no brainer” to mention you. It was a fun experiment, and really easy to complete. I simply did what I promised in the first article, highlighted musicians who had retweeted the original post or mentioned Trace Relations music the most times. You stepped up to the plate! (as always) – All seven musicians listed here EARNED the mention. Thanks for your support and for commenting here. All the best, T

  5. Tracy Ready says:

    Thanks Susan for your kind comment – I had fun with this experiment – and you and David and the others really stepped up to the plate, sharing the original post and Trace Relations music. Everyone listed here EARNED the mention. I’d turn around what you said -to say that YOU are “incredibly talented and totally rock the social media scene!”
    All the best, T
