Hey Jus, with a whole slew of things for my band coming up I started to shop for endorsements. Thus far the band is now endorsing Dava Picks and Maxon FX. I could not be any happier. Its been 13 years since I was 9 and started to play the bass. My dream as of late has been to have companies/people see my/our vision in music and be able to have companies that I love endorse myself and my band mates. So far the companies that we are working with have been nothing but great to work with! Are there companies that you have worked with now or in the past that are a pleasure to work with? On to showcases: This Monday, April 13, my band, The Dialogue (www.thedialogueband.com) is showcasing in NYC for 3 majors, an independent and a few management companies. Any words of advice? Our debut record, "All I Thought Impossible" comes out May 5, 2009 and will distributed through online outlets including iTunes, Rhapsody etc. I would love to send you a copy of it! You had checked it out a bit ago on our myspace and gave pretty cool comparisons. I'd love to let you hear it in its entirety. Lastly, press kits. Any words of advice or wisdom on this one? Thanks for everything Justin!
