4 Tips for Using iTunes as an Online Radio Station https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/828-4-tips-for-using-itunes-as-an-online-radio-station.html https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/828-4-tips-for-using-itunes-as-an-online-radio-station.html 4 Tips for Using iTunes as an Online Radio Station


iTunes Radio is an innovative way for people to discover new music by creating personalized stations based on songs that they already love.

 

Here are four tips to help you get started.
1) Create a playlist with your favorite songs. 2) Add some commentary to each song. 3) Set up a station based on your playlists. 4) Share your station with friends.

Create a playlist with songs from artists or genres you like.
You can use iTunes to create a radio station by creating a playlist of songs you enjoy listening to. Then add some commentary to each song so people will understand why you chose them. Finally, set up a station based on those playlists. To do this, go to “Preferences” > “General” > “Radio” > “Create Station.”

Add music videos to your playlists.
If you’re looking for more ways to make money with your YouTube channel, consider adding music videos to your playlists. Music videos are often shared on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, and they can help boost engagement on your channel. Plus, these videos tend to perform better than other types of videos when it comes to search engine optimization (SEO).

Find podcasts about topics you care about.
You can find podcasts about almost any topic imaginable. Just use a podcast directory like Podcast Alley to browse through thousands of shows. Once you find one you like, subscribe to it so you can listen whenever you want.

Share your favorite stations with friends.
If you’re looking for more ways to share your favorite podcasts, try sharing them via email or social media. This will help people discover new podcasts they might enjoy.

Airplay For Musicians: How To Get Airplay On The Radio https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/827-airplay-for-musicians.html https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/827-airplay-for-musicians.html The Guaranteed Radio Airplay

Want to play your favorite songs on the radio? Here's how to get started.

 

Find Out Who Is Listening.
If you're looking to make some money off your music, then you need to find out who is listening to your music. This means finding out what stations are playing your music, as well as where those stations are located. You can use online tools such as TuneIn and Pandora to help you with this process.

Create A Playlist That Will Get You Noticed.
Once you've found out what stations play your music, you need to create a playlist that will get them to listen to your songs. There are several ways to go about doing this. One option is to create a playlist using Spotify. Another option is to create a custom playlist using iTunes. Either way, you should try to keep your playlist short and sweet so that it won't take too much time to load.

Write Music That Sounds Good And Gets Attention.
If you're looking to get more people listening to your music, then you need to write good songs. You also need to make sure that your song sounds good. This means that you need to practice playing your instrument well enough to sound good when you sing or play along with yourself.

Submit Your Song To Online Services.
Once you've written a few songs, it's time to submit them to online services. These services will help you find out whether your songs are any good. They might even let you know what kind of music industry professionals think about your songs.

Promote Yourself Through Social Media.
If you're looking to promote yourself through social media, then you need to start with Twitter. This is because Twitter has more than 500 million monthly active users. That means there are plenty of people who use Twitter every day.

Who is the That Man Goddess Cre is talking about? https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/823-thatmanbycre.html https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/823-thatmanbycre.html That Man
That Man by Goddess Cre is simply a hit! Her vocals are moving. You can hear the music through the speakers. The passion she displayed throughout the track is exactly what is needed in the industry today. The production and vocal delivery are both excellent. This will be loved by ladies across the globe. It's refreshing to hear "That Man" by Goddess Cre as it's not about tricking, B*tches and etc... It's real music. Listen to the track and let us know your thoughts. 
 
Goddess Cre is an upcoming singer/songwriter, who has been inspired by talented artists like Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill, and Rihanna and describes herself as the “Lady of Hip-Pop Blues.” This Full Sail graduate is originally from Biloxi, Mississippi but began her music journey in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 2010. It wasn’t until after her sudden cancer diagnosis that the seal was placed on her destiny. In 2016, she was diagnosed with DLB Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and underwent invasive chemo and radiation treatments to restore her health. The beauty of her very first project "In Remission" emerged from the darkness. You can find it across streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and more.
 
“Better Days is the first single released from R&B Soul singer/songwriter Goddess Cre’s EP ‘In Remission’, and it may very well be the most flawless balance of soul and groove I’ve ever slipped into.” writes Amelia Vandergast, a music reviewer for AnRFactory.com. Some of her accolades include airplay on internet radio stations SugarwaterRadio.com and WNIR-Radio.com and she was one of the Women to Look for in 2020 for the WNIR-Radio special. Her performances include various open mics, conferences, and other events in the NC area. She was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) in 2020 for her song “Blues.” While in quarantine, she landed an A&R Internship with the newly founded company GreatherThan which is based out of Santa Monica, CA. Under the mentorship of the company’s CFO Paula Moore, she quickly became one of the company’s Lead A&R Scouts. Upon completion of the internship, she has begun writing and working on her very first album “Unavailable AF” which is set to release sometime in 2023. To find out more, you can find her across all social media platforms and streaming services as Goddess Cre.

Question and Answer with the Artist:

How did you start in the music business?  I’ve been doing music for a while since age 19 to be exact but I didn’t really take it seriously until 2017. I’m a Full Sail University graduate and I received my Bachelor’s in Music Business in 2016.

How would you describe the music that you typically create? I like to call it Hip-Pop Blues! It’s all of my favorite genres. Hip-hop, R&B, and Pop all combined into one.

What is the current project about?  Currently, I’m working on my very first album and it’s called “Unavailable AF”. It’s about cutting off direct access to me and creating more boundaries with anyone and anything that feels negative to me and my growth. I’m setting up the message to be “this is what I’m doing to heal and grow and if you can’t respect that or if you aren’t trying to do that same thing then I have to go. I’m busy being unavailable”

How do you feel it will inspire others?  I’m really hoping that it will inspire others to do exactly the same. If something in your life is causing you to lack joy, get rid of it and make yourself unavailable until you finish your healing process. It’s not the easiest process to go through but it’s YOURS. Accept it, own it, and make any change you feel is necessary.

What is your creative process like?  I can be all over the place in my creative process at times. I pull inspiration from so many different things and places. Sometimes it’s scrambled around until I can structure out the song and sometimes it just flows. One thing that doesn’t change is my use of the dictionary and the thesaurus. I’m heavy on context and I don’t want to be misunderstood lol so I have to double-check all of my words and make sure I’m using them correctly. I also don’t like repeating too many words so I like to swap them out with their synonyms.

Who would you most like to collaborate with? Pharrell and Timberland are my top 2 producers. To be able to work with them would be an absolute game changer! And I’m going to try my best not to DIE if they ever reached out lol.

   
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be? I’d choose Doja Cat. She’s very creative and a true artist.  I love her diversity and I feel that same diversity as an artist. I aspire to be on her level. Terms as well! I love me some TEMS!

What is one message you would give to your fans? I’d same do everything original. Be yourself unapologetically. Nobody can be you or do you as YOU do you and that’s your superpower.

What is the most useless talent you have? That I can speak Pig Latin but it’s not considered an actual language so I can’t label myself as bilingual lol  

 Do you sing in the shower? What songs? What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?  Yes! Of course, I sing in the shower! Beyonce’s “Rather Be With You” is one of my favorites as well as “If I Aint Got You” by Alicia Keys and “Emotional Rollercoaster” by Vivian Green. If I weren’t in the music business, I’d either be into computer science/cyber security or herbal medicine. I’m a cancer survivor, now 5yrs in remission! So, after I finished treatments, I became heavily interested in natural healing.

Where have you performed?  What are your favorite and least favorite venues? I’ve only performed locally around my area in North Carolina. Those cities include Fayetteville, Raleigh/Durham, Charlotte, Greensboro, and Wilmington, NC. Just at bars and clubs alike. My favorite was the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte.

 
Do you have any upcoming shows?  I do not have any shows booked right now. I’m still kind of cautious about covid and now this monkeypox epidemic is going around. I am open and available for them, especially smaller venues right now, and eventually work my way up to the bigger stages.
   

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?  Honestly, quarantine was the best thing that ever happened to me. I felt like the label execs, A&R, and music supervisors had no choice but to go through all of their emails and direct messages. We were all bored in the house and in the house bored lol so you HAVE to listen to my music. And the internet has changed how we can deliver our music directly to them. The internet has provided so many different ways to access these important people and being in quarantine made it even easier to access them.

What is your favorite song to perform? I  have this song called “Better Days” and it’s my favorite to perform. It’s also a fan favorite and as I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve only performed locally so to see all of my people rocking and singing along with me, truly blesses my heart. And it’s a feeling I can’t trade for anything.
    

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?  Come on now! We all know snitches get stitches! Lol! So I plead the 5th!

 

What is the best advice you’ve been given? My mom would always say “Birds of a feather flock together” so be careful who you associate yourself with because whatever reputation they have will automatically attach itself to you so don’t be a follower. Be YOU and do you at all times.

   
What’s next? I just dropped a new single called “Underneath” on August 5, 2022, and I’m shooting the visual for it next month. I’m currently promoting that. Outside of that, I’m working on Unavailable AF and prepping for its release next year. I do have more singles that I’ll be dropping in between there as well.

 What should the world know? I want the world to know that they should follow me on all of my socials and streaming platforms so they don’t miss all of the amazing music, visuals, and merch that I am prepping for them. And you can find me as Goddess Cre or you can use Cre Riggins for backup. Stay safe, don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do by speaking THEIR fears into you, and speak all of your heart's desires into the Universe so mote they be!

Next Big Thing by Ru -The Right Way Entertainment https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/817-ru-next-big-thing-the-right-way-entertainment.html https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/817-ru-next-big-thing-the-right-way-entertainment.html Next Big Thing by Ru

Richmond, Va.- Foreshadowing a bright future ahead, singer/ songwriter Ru: releases an upbeat new single that solidifies her stay in music while staking a claim on her predestined success.

On the bubbly ballad “Next Big Thing,” she resonates with radiance, power, and poise atop cosmic and colorful mid-tempo production accented by a hypnotic background of traditional R&B/soul. In a soft, sweet soprano, she purrs with the self-assured confidence of a singer twice her age.

 “’Next Big Thing’ is a good representation of how I am inside my head,” Ru: explains. “The song isn’t meant to be cocky. It’s more uplifting if anything. In order for other people to see your potential, you have to believe in yourself. Anything you want to do, you have the ability to do it.”

A true testament to her own life, Ru: has been pursuing her dreams of being a professional singer since she was in elementary school. Born Taniya Cockburn and raised in the quiet Richmond, Va. suburb of Chesterfield, her life has been filled with music for as long as she can remember.

Her father played in a band and was constantly making his own music on keyboards, guitars, and steel drums around the home. He bought Ru: her first guitar when she was seven years old. Two years later, she was recording in a professional studio.

Through the years, she mastered the guitar and her voice, singing in the school choir and performing at local open mics at only 12 years old. She began writing music in seventh grade and released her first single “Want You Gone” in the summer of 2020.

Further pushing the boundaries of her music, she wrote and poured her heart into the touching testimony “Where Did My Life Go” earlier this summer. Appearing on the soundtrack of the motion picture Corrupt, the song is about a woman whose husband had died.

Now on the verge of her as-yet-untitled project set to be released soon, the pop music phenomenon moves musical mountains on her latest single “Next Big Thing.” Encouraging others to believe in themselves and follow their dreams, Ru: makes music to inspire.

“My lyrics come from a place of meaning,” Ru: contends. “It has a lot of meaning to it, so people can relate.”

Blckfriend Signs with Babygrande Records https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/806-blckfriend-signs-with-babygrande-records.html https://www.longemagazine.com/music-clients/item/806-blckfriend-signs-with-babygrande-records.html Robbery - Blckfriend Signs with Babygrande Records

Blckfriend is not your average rapper. Hailing from New York City, he infuses the many genres that have influenced him to create a style that is distinctly his own. Prior to signing with Babygrande Records, blckfriend had fully immersed himself in artistry, weaving hip-hop, rock, punk, and grunge into his sound and style. These elements also shine through in his live performances and experimental filmmaking, which have helped him not only accrue an audience on DSPs, but also on socials, where he avidly posts freestyles to keep his fans engaged.

Blckfriend wants to push boundaries as an artist, and his pursuit to master the electric guitar is just one of the many enticing elements of his live shows and recorded music. Now, with his official debut single “Robbery,” blckfriend embarks on his journey as a multifaceted artist and guitarist with an unparalleled work ethic.

With psychedelic drunkenness to it, “Robbery” serves as an exciting debut for blckfriend. He has the uncanny ability to combine clever wordplay with off-kilter harmonies and rhythms, dissecting a beat while also delivering catchy flows. His talent truly shines midway through the song, where he plays an original guitar solo over the beat’s somber piano melody; he layers the solo with crooning vocals that evoke a sense of self-inflicted instability and befuddled thought.

What’s more, his visual presence mirrors his commanding grip on the mic. The music video for “Robbery” aptly depicts the same talent and mystery that the track conveys. Directed by Jack Rottier, who is best known for shooting a handful of Yeat’s best-performing music videos, the visual takes viewers to an urban landscape where villains and thieves move through the night. In tandem with blckfriend’s eclectic persona, the video engages yet leaves plenty of unanswered questions. The video premiered via HipHopDX (https://hiphopdx.com/news/id.73262/title.blckfriend-announces-babygrande-records-deal-with-debut-single-video-robbery)

It’s a powerful debut that shows huge promise for blckfriend going forward.
