Think globally, rock locally

So I have written an albums worth what I think are some good songs. I did a few solo things to get my feet wet and find out if I was cut out to perform. I took that momentum and founded a band, The Hampton Bridge. We played a few small things to feel out band arrangements and find our "stage grove". After a whole bunch of rehearsing we have recorded quite a few things and blown the roof off of a few local clubs. What do I do next. How do get the music industry to hear my stuff. I really enjoy playing at a bars or clubs around town but That is done now and is not my real goal. What can I do to help myself get to the next level. How do I get the right people to listen to my music. I would welcome any advise

Thanks for the mention, Mudcat! This is a huge part of what I'm doing, and I'm up for questions and discussions, too. Most of the interaction is at, which is fed from the posts at

Get on all your social networks, get a webmaster to put up a website on your band, hire a PR firm to start a buzz. Get an agent to believe in your tunes enough to shop them to labels in New York and LA. It takes time and money. Ryan has a whole series of vids to help the indie artist. Check it out at Thats as far as my thinking takes me.
