Hey guys,im a singer/songwriter from London,UK, but im looking for gigs and anyone who can set up a mini tour for me. I could even come and perform in the US. I am looking to pick up new fans and listeners all the time. Anybody know of anything or would even like me to open for you??? I dont have a band,im more of a solo artist but I have contacts for musicians I can use.Check:http://www.myspace.com/rayemureThanks.Ray.

You might try the Musican's Altas if you're interested in booking gigs in the UShttp://www.musiciansatlas.com/There's also a great house concerts site... can I find it... yep, they've got a pretty good list. http://www.houseconcerts.com/venue.php Depending what you play, if you appeal the college crowd, you might have an in. Derek Sivers wrote an article about that - http://cdbaby.net/college2You need to decide what cities you want to play (and who is going to tour with you), then firm up some gigs, work out your transportation/accomodation & budget, and then use the Indie Bible to pitch your CD to local radio stations & work on marketing your self.http://www.indiebible.com/Your music is good, but your myspace page doesn't reflect your 'solo artist' style music - if you're pitching yourself as an acoustic act or a solo artist, you need to present music that fits that image. You might put together a video of yourself playing live & solo, so that folks booking acts can hear & see what you do.Just a few thoughts.
