Broadjam Songwriter Hank Thomas is currently seeking a vocalist for several of his productions.

You can find him through the Broadjam search engine, his work is primarily country, and it's a great way to put a little beer money into the back pocket while getting your name on some credits. Last I checked, he was offering a $50 US consolation prize for performing, another $200 if the work gets picked up & licensed.

Please contact Hank directly for details beyond the ones shared in this post.

Let Hank know I sent you. Please direct any further questions his way. I'll vouch for him. Some of the best country I've heard on this website has come out of the Thomas camp.

Food for thought:

I recently connected to over 1000 new artists.

Of those 1000....

10 reached out without prompting. 5 of those ten had a compliment to share, 3 of those ten were suspicious of why I connected, and 2 of those ten were hostile or rude.

Of those 1000....

I earned several fans & hundreds of plays by sharing a work attached to my first email (out to the group,)

After the initial email...

5 artists reached out privately with positive comments.
3 artists pursued services.
4 more artists requested reviews while hinting they'd be interested in services.

At least 8 artists responded negatively... Mostly with a "who the @#$% do you think you are contacting me?" vibe. In two cases... It escalated to highly unprofessional hostility that led to blocking. No... The fire wasn't fueled by a negative response to negative responses. It was seemingly unavoidable.

That's 1%... 1% negative reaction of either extreme or resistant natures while reaching out with "practical or useful content" for a community driven mostly by music.

This week... I shared an interview with Kevin Smith on Prince, two links to music competitions that artists could participate in, and was then told I'm a selfish spammer by not one... But several artists.
For those of you new to Broadjam...
Publisher emails will not be the only kind of messages you receive if you choose to connect with other artists.

As a matter of fact... I've been a member of Broadjam since 2008, I've shopped thousands of dollars in work, and have connected with dozens of publishers along the way. I've gotten perhaps 10 notifications through the Broadjam system over the years, so really, that's not a whole lot of communication (or business) through official channels.
I have on the other hand done a significant amount of business on Broadjam with other artists & film makers in unofficial channels... Much more than I have with publishers to be honest.

I no longer rely on "Broadjam email notifications" to tell me if my music is successful this week. I don't even pay to submit anymore. My work is already out there, it's kind of everywhere, but I don't measure my success by that.
I measure my success by my next great goal... And they only get bigger as I go.
I have accomplished all these things by taking advantage of the vast social network here on Broadjam, by getting the contact information from publishers as they sign me, and by allowing other artists to contact me with "their spam," mostly so I can keep a steady finger on the pulse of the community.

As such, I've created jobs for others with my own goals, I've done jobs for others with "their" own goals, and I have even been published through "non official" opportunities thanks to the relationships I've built through Broadjam's communication system.
Business... Lots and lots of business all thanks to my willingness to engage with others.

That's a lot of business that has nothing to do with Broadjam Ops but everything to do with Broadjam's community. It is literally your own choice as to whether or not you'll take part in it.
How do I give back?

If you're reading this, it means your connected, and it also means that you'll receive likely two to four emails from me in a month.
In most emails, I try to share things that are useful to other artists, artists of every skill level mind you. Whether it be links to competitions, information on awesome gear, or even blogs that can teach you new things... I'm always trying to pull up on the rope.

Why? Because I "too" know what it's like to have a gift that no one is aware of...

I get it... I do.

But artists should not expect to build a profile and then have "the fans just come."
It just doesn't work this way. And if you're an artist with only ten connections... Might I suggest you're not qualified to tell me otherwise?

Being a successful artist in today's market is hard, it takes a lot of networking & social skills, it also takes a lot of hard work in the studio. Some of us are better at some things than others though, and not all of us are approachable, and that's ok. What isn't ok is being a condescending a-hole that thinks he's better than everyone else.

So... If you don't like to be bothered, don't connect. Seriously.
If you feel like Broadjam's mail system should be reserved for publisher communications, that's perfectly fine, and in ten years... You can let me know how that approach to your market worked out for you. I've already got my statistics, but maybe you'll do better, maybe you're a significantly better producer than me?

Really though, I'm just another fish in the fish bowl, doing my thing.
I listen to the work of the people who treat me with respect, I support the artists that I love, and I'm willing to work with anyone who is willing to pay my hourly rate.

This is not exactly what I'd call a negative position to take with a rather large & diverse community. Why people will treat me negatively for reaching out can be over a handful of reasons, but none of them will be reasons I (or any of you) should lose sleep over.
"Angry artist lashing out over another artists existing?"
Yeah... It sounds like they're very successful, both in in personal enlightenment and in their professional accomplishments as well... I'd recommend anyone who bumps into these sorts to just block communications and carry on.

Reaching out is hard... Mostly because no matter what, 1% is going to try and smear their negative crap all over you.
It's a very small world... There are a lot of shallow souls in it, but there are a lot of great souls that inhabit it too.
My best recommendation to new Broadjam members, would be to try to show respect to those who "connect or reach out" to you, you're not going to be earning any new fans be responding poorly or "entitled" in your first email.

My advice to said "entitled" artists would be this.
"To avoid such things... Just don't connect with any artists, kindly direct them to the "follow" tab and let them know you're about as interested in "actually connecting" as you are interested in experiencing their work."
"You can let me know how that attitude works out for you in ten years too."

With all that said, those of you who are connected and in good form, welcome to Broadjam. This is a wonderful website with endless potential to kick start your career. How you chose to use it though is on you.

It is wonderful to have all of you on my feed... And I look forward to experiencing all of the work you share in the Broadjam email system.

Thank you for your support and the time taken to read this little rant.

I hope it is useful to at least a few of you... And would encourage artists to try to live and let live as they connect with other individuals.
You never know what kind of opportunities you're burning by "acting entitled to strangers likely more connected than you are."

Just a thought some of you may consider while you interact on the equivalent of "Facebook for musicians."
