For The Record

It has come to our attention that an artist we recently promoted was not happy with our methods of promotion.  As passionate lovers of rock music, we here at Renée's Rock Reviews, consider our work to be a labor of love.  

No one gets paid to research, write and edit content.  No one gets paid to pitch ideas to artists and their management.  No one is paid to find artists who are no longer in vogue and try to put the word out about their current projects. 

While we do maintain a professional standard when it comes to approaching artists, our content leans more toward the loose and personal.  We’re like teenagers who found their first Pat Benatar album and lost their minds.  We write from a gut level love, a down and sometimes dirty passion for rock music. 

We are ride or die rock music lovers. 

Anyone who has been in this business as long as we have understands that the relationship between the media and artists is a mutually beneficial one.  When we cover an artist who is no longer in the mainstream, we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the artist will benefit no matter how close to Pluto they are in terms of industry relevance.    

The more people who read about what the artist is doing, chances are someone will go out and purchase their music, instruction video or whatever it is they’re hocking.  RRR benefits by hopefully increasing our readership.  Marketing 101. Publishing 101.  Simple. 

When it comes to promotion, like any online publisher with a brain, we utilize our social media outlets like Facebook and LinkedIn to help get the word out about great rock music and the artists we cover.
   
IF FOR ANY REASON AN ARTIST, RECORD COMPANY, MANAGER OR PR REPRESENTATIVE IS NOT SATISFIED WITH THE WAY WE PUSH THEIR PROJECTS, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY AND WE WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO REMOVE ANY AND ALL CONTENT RELATED TO THE ARTIST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Keep on rockin’.
