We have been fortunate to have had long and rewarding careers in the music industry.

Over different career paths, we have worked with many great artists and great record labels, and witnessed first hand the unique combination of talent and teamwork that best reflects the music business.

Check out our music biz roots here.

Music is an essential part of the fabric of our lives. It is an extremely powerful means of communication. Making music can help break down cultural barriers and strengthen social unity.

But I don’t have to tell you, the music industry is immensely competitive, and good marketing is essential for anyone looking to turn their art into a successful career. After all, artists can expect to make only about 70% of a penny per play on Apple Music, and a little more than half that on Spotify. A song with a million streams will earn you well under $10,000. Plus, touring is expensive.

We help musicians and music-related brands grow their audience, expand their influence and make a living making music.

EMERGENT – in the process of coming into being or becoming prominent. In philosophy and art, emergence occurs when “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” meaning the whole has properties its parts do not have. These properties come about because of interactions among the parts.

For those of you just starting out and don’t have a marketing budget…yet, we’ve taken the time to create an in-depth free DIY music promotion guide to help you reach as many screaming fans as possible, all on your own.  You should also check out our Blog for even more industry info that you should know about.

But…are you experienced enough for your next release?

Do you have a plan for all of these, BEFORE you release:

  1. Spotify (presave & day of plan to shock the algorithm!)
  2. SoundCloud (yes you need this for very different reasons than Spotify)
  3. Presale (you need to make at least SOME money from your release, yes?)
  4. Social media engagement
  5. Website updates
  6. Email announcement ready
  7. PR strategy
  8. A full day of launch plan – individual actions to take on the DAY OF RELEASE!

Tell us about your next project and let’s see how Emergent Behaviors can help you make it as successful as humanly possible.
