OK, OK, I now have Sonicbids ...
Despite my own better judgement, I have finally got around to signing up for a Sonicbids account for The Genre Benders. I have resisted this for a long time because I could not see the value proposition in it as working for me, but ... well, I wanted to enter "12 Good Bars and True" in the International Songwriting Competition - just to see what might happen - and Sonicbids was the best way to do it.
Looking through what's on the inside, I gotta say that I still don't see much value in it. There are not many opportunities in Australia and the fees for any that look reliable overseas are ... beyond my reach. I did enter the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, mainly to see what would happen. I'm not holding my breath to get in, though. Still, I guess if I'd never put myself forward, I have no chance ... and all that. Would be a lot of fun if I did.
We'll just have to see and, either way, it's good data ...Posted by Hughie at October 15, 2007 12:26 PM
