Although we generally feature and interview primarily the most underground-minded, Don’s advice should be considered by all; whether you want to make it mainstream or not, making a living off of your art is something we all want to do.
It doesn’t matter how creative or technically talented you are or how much you hate commercialism. If you want anyone to be affected by your art other than your circle of friends and a handful of bystanders you need to understand ow to properly promote yourself and your work, whether you are trying to make it mainstream or not. Don’s a damn good promoter and whether or not you dig the music, there are lessons to be learned here.
