Donna and Allen News Update From Marty
Allen Karl & Donna Cunningham, both super successful indie artists, continue to record great music, and it is evident by the airplay they are receiving. They have been leaders in the indie recording industry with their great performances and production of songs they release to country radio. I believe that Allen and Donna should be given the opportunity to have their music reviewed and played on today’s major radio stations, plus all of the indie radio stations that are presently so supportive of their efforts.
There are so many artists, who if they do not get #1 songs on airplay charts, feel they have been cheated, but the reality, is that a music career is not just for one day, one week, one month, or a year, it must be on a continuous basis, with great performances, great production, and trust me, great promotion, which Allen and Donna have been so instrumental to keep their music out to country radio, and to be available for all media request.
For any talent agents who read this email, please know that both artists are available for personal appearances and their shows are as strong as I have seen, and they are fan orientated, so that their fans never are cheated when the attend one of their shows. Allen & Donna realize that they would not be successful without the support of first the DJ’s who play their music for their fans, new fans, and the industry. The word “ego” is not in their vocabulary, although any music artists must have an ego so that the fans can see that they are making their efforts to please their fans, and to make new fans. So Allen Karl and Donna Cunningham are two of the most requested and played indie artists. Their website addresses are as follows:
Please take a few minutes to check out their websites and you will find out more on both of these great artists. I know that everyone who reads this realizes that just because there are so-called superstars in the mainstream of country music, THERE ARE ALSO SUPERSTARS IN THE INDIE WORLD. Mainstream country radio does not have a playlist to accommodate indie artists, and many times there are great artists overlooked because of the record jam at radio stations to get their music played. So please know that your support is so vital to indie artists that you like and they need you to continue to support them, and soon you will find them on mainstream radio, because there are many superstar talents who do not get attention because there are so many great artists, and to you artists, never give up on your career.
It takes time, effort, times of disappointment, times of joy, but if you love your music, go after it with a passion, and you will find out that there is always an opening for you to get your music played. Patience is a virtue, so please do not give up. I wish I could give you the formula for success, but no one has it. They say that money makes the artists, but I promise you that if the talent is not there, then all the money in the world cannot make you successful in the music industry. I do know that it was easier back when I was recording because there was not a log jam of artists competing, but in today’s country music, if you believe in your talent, then persevering is your road to success, and then as we all know, it might never happen, but it is not because of lack of talent, it is because of politics, yes-money, honest management and booking, and your love of what you want so badly, success in country music.
Make sure your fans know you are the backbone of their careers, and without their support, you are just one of the many, but if you swim upstream, you will see that you will reach your destination when it is time. Keep your faith and even when times of disappointment make you want to give it all up, remember there is another artist ready to jump in on the space you vacate. I know what I am saying, so DO NOT GIVE UP. If you believe in your music, then your fans will believe in you, and you will be able to move forward.
Allen Karl and Donna Cunningham have written the music meaning to perseverance for their careers and they have been moving forward for their love of the music, and I know they will continue on this path because they believe in what they are doing, and that is why your support is so important to both of these artists.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me for any questions you may have. Thank you and have a great rest of the day.
