Worldwide phenomenon LA Velvet is a Los Angeles-based band founded in 2010 by front woman pioneer and lioness Laura V, who provides the vocals and fierce guitar-playing skills to the tracks, in addition to song writing. LA Velvet “plays their own version of modern danceable rock that conquers the charts,” described by Obliveon Magazine as a combination of a “’70s Blondie, an 80’s Kim Wilde and a 90’s Gwen Stefani and No Doubt.”

Prior to their official album release, LA Velvet already licensed songs to 18 television shows, including Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real L Word, MTV, VH1 and OXYGEN. Severe Records and GUnit produced LA Velvet’s second album The One I Love, which they are currently on tour promoting. The band has already been nominated for multiple awards at the 2011 World Independent Music and Film Festival including awards for Best Cinematography, Best Director and Best Rock Video. LA Velvet has major endorsement deals with Mineral Case Make up, Coffin Case and Jackson Guitars, who provided the hot pink Flying-V, which has become a part of Laura V’ s signature style.

LA Velvet’s self-produced debut album has sold thousands of copies worldwide, taking LA Velvet on a successful national tour in 2012, reaching out to fans as far away as Germany. Their latest album, The One I Love, was met with favorable reviews by the critics and hailed by Venture Magazine as “a chart worthy collection of sassy vocals, punchy guitar and high energy,” while Peter Amara of Escence Center Stage describes it as “a thunderous mix of indie rock and electronic influences” that effectively “enthralls and raptures the listening audience with its infectious melodies.”

LA Velvet continues to surprise its audience with a daring and innovative approach to rock music, providing a unique, customized sound mixed with sweet powerful lyrics, resulting in a sound that is fearless and original. A sound that is… LA Velvet.

Major Label Promotion

“We have so many years of experience working with some of the biggest names in the industry and many amazing artists the majors let fall through the cracks. The music industry in the digital age is a results-oriented industry. The only way to come out ahead as an independent artist or label is with a very lean, innovative and tenacious team of music industry experts. It hasn’t been an easy task to assemble such a great team of executives who can produce results and do so in a cost-effective manner, but I’m proud to say we have done it.”

Co-Founder and Major Label Promotion Veteran Erik Baker

Have you had someone promise you radio airplay without delivering on that promise?

Are you looking for a team that can help you fix what a past promotion team has already done or simply looking to avoid the pitfalls that you have seen others fall into?

Are you a developing talent who:

Has reached a plateau in the industry
Seeks new/broader markets
Is interested in more brand partnerships/sponsors?

If so we have exactly what you’re looking for! Our team is comprised of major label veterans in promotion, marketing, and A&R. Over the past 4 years we’ve been helping hundreds of artists, managers and labels succeed in an industry that is changing so rapidly, it’s nearly impossible to stay ahead of the curve.

Our goal at Major Label Promotions is to provide more than what a label provides an artist. The “labels” have been notorious at providing promotion and marketing to artists without involving them in what’s happening behind the scenes. Generally the artist is told, “Just be creative and let the label handle the business.” While the artist does need to be creative, an understanding of its business is the key to long term success. The artist is the driving force behind its business and should know about and understand it.

Do you have or have you had a promotion & marketing team that just cannot connect the dots?

Most of today’s labels, managers and artists outside of the “Major” landscape are simply lacking the necessary tools to effectively develop themselves in an ultra-competitive marketplace.  We give our clients access to all the resources a major label would provide in a personal, more transparent manner. Unlike the major labels, we keep our clients well-informed. We provide a more comprehensive set of services and keep our clients informed as to how and why they are utilized.

King Of The Delta Blues

http://www.reverbnation.com/deltastarz

The term “Delta Blues” has historically been used to describe blues music originating in the Mississippi Delta. In recent years, it has become synonymous with blues played throughout the south in the ‘20s and ‘30s. Eventually, Delta Blues migrated north with the Great Depression – giving birth to the urban blues of Chicago and Detroit.

Early delta blues artists were recorded as they traveled the south, earning a living playing juke joints and street corners. Music historians like Alan Lomax and record labels producing “race records” recorded much of the works of early bluesmen. The tremors of the delta blues influence on American music can still be felt reverberating through country, jazz, pop, and rap. Delta Blues laid the foundation for R&B and rock and roll.

Robert Johnson is the most well known and widely recognized of the delta blues performers. He is revered and admired for his playing and songwriting skills by contemporary rock musicians including Jimi Page and Eric Clapton. In the liner notes of Robert Johnson’s boxed set “Complete Recordings,” Clapton calls Johnson “the most important blues musician who ever lived.”
