Know what people do!

I guess this has been up before. But it was so obvious today.

I got a demo submission from an artist wanting me to spread her music and get her gigs. That is two different roles in the industry. And really none is my thing. Sure I book thing here and there because I have to. But I rather see someone really good doing that.
Spread the music, yes a PR firm but same here yes I do some because I have too. But it's not what I'm really working with.

In this case, it was a 14-year-old girl. And in that age, you don't see the difference it's understandble and I'm more impressed that she has sought around and had a huge drive to want to work with music. So I actually went in and checked her stuff out and put in some likes and good feedback.

Then an hour later I got a new mail from another person.
- I have this really cool band that needs to be heard and get gigs! Can you help?

And here it a rock band with 30-year-old guys doing the same mistake. In fact, the 14-year-old girl had done more than this band in her career.

It's not like just going out there and book gigs or getting your music played. It's a real struggle. So the expectations are a bit too high in many cases that we could perform some sort of miracle. And this is all over the place even a major label can't just do it like that. It's equally hard for them. It's all hard work, more hard work than you imagine.
