Avant Music News continues to grow with over 2160 Facebook followers, and nearly 1800 followers on Twitter. I remember at one point thinking that 300 followers would be the most we’d ever be able to obtain. So glad I was wrong.
Some of you may have noticed that we’re now conducting original interviews. You can read all two of them here. So far it has gone well, and we hope to continue conducting more interviews in the future. If you’re a musician or composer who would like to be interviewed, or if you know someone who you think we should interview, feel free to contact us.
We’ve received a record number of requests to review releases in the last two months. Despite publishing more reviews than ever in September, we still get about 20 review requests for each published review. That means that 19 out of 20 go unreviewed. Please don’t take any lack of response on our part as an indication that we don’t like your music. Often, we do, but there is just so much time in the day. There are only four of us writing reviews regularly at this point, and I’d like to bump that number up a bit. Thus, if you’d like to write a review or two per month for AMN, please also contact us.
Finally, we share / republish all of articles on our Facebook feed. However, Facebook has been letting fewer and fewer people see the articles in this feed, while simultaneously asking us for money to ensure that more people see said articles. We are not willing to part with money for this service, but can’t complain since it is free. However, if you are missing AMN articles on your Facebook feed, try this: On our Facebook page find the button that says “Liked”, click on it, and select “Get Notifications”. That way you shouldn’t miss a thing. Hopefully.
