I provide promotion of recordings to folk and bluegrass radio for appropriate recordings and print tour support using a negotiated fee based on how much work done and by what media. Service can be filtered by budget, location, the amount of work you are willing to do, or genre to fit your goals and budget.
Art Menius Media is based on two basic concepts:
You can afford radio promotion or assistance
You can’t afford not to have radio promotion support
I can scale from $50 for two hours of consultation to $2500 for Cadillac service. Between those two ends of service and fees, I can develop different levels of hybrid professional-DIY solutions or full service.
