Digital, especially Spotify, should be used as a marketing tool not as your main focus for generating revenue. – Rob Hirst
This week’s guest is Rob Hirst from Fans for Bands, a PR, playlist pitching and social media company and These Bloody Thieves an independent record label based in Sheffield.
I came across Fans for Bands when looking for playlisting support for a band I’m working with. Rob came recommended by a friend of the artist. But we first got talking when Rob reached out to another artist I’m working with after recognising him as the bass player from one of his oldest favourite bands.
Rob also does some marketing work for Frank Wilkes from the artist development platform Kycker who was interviewed on Episode 2.
