Last month's newsletter alluded to an article by JT about the importance of follow-up. We learned a good lesson about the importance of checking our links. Sorry we linked to another article. We'll send the correct link next month, but wanted to leave space this month for:

                        <br>
Derek is an old friend of JT's and one of few in the industry whose heart is really behind independent musicians. EM did an interview with Derek last month and we feel that everyone should have a look at what he had to say:
<br>
<br>

When it comes to the independent music scene, few people are more knowledgeable than Derek Sivers (see Fig. 1). He began his music career as a guitarist and later founded CD Baby (cdbaby.com), which quickly became one of the most high-profile independent music sites on the Web. The site offers musicians both an inexpensive way to sell their music (physical CDs and digital downloads) and a large community to market it to. <a href="http://emusician.com/interviews/ industry_insider/emusic_qa_derek_sivers/">More...</a>

<br>

JT and The Guild auditioned many candidates for drummer and bassist this month at DVE Studio. Now renamed The News Collisions, with Mike Forrester and Alex Athans joining Scott and Sarah, the rest of the month was spent rehearsing, arranging, developing image, clothing and stage presence with Jordan in the studio.<br>
<br>
JT continues mixing the long anticipated album for the Guy Mendilow Band.

DBE producer Jordan Tishler spoke on the role of the modern producer and how to choose one, to how to work with a team of music professional as an independent artist (DII - Do It Indepedently), and how to use modern technology to advance your career. It was a fun, well attended conference, and as usual, JT met lots of great folk; both musicians and industry insiders.

<span class="small">The New Collisions is the name taken by the new indie rock band, previously with the working name The Guild. Last month DBE signed a development deal with the husband and wife team of Scott and Sarah Guild. The band is now working with JT to refine their songs, image, stage presence, and ultimately recordings. It's a long road to the top... but these guys are on their way. Having auditioned and added Mike Forrester on drums and Alex Athans on bass rehearsals, bookings, photos and a website are under way. Think indie rock with touches of glam and punk. Think "urgent vocals of Pat Benatar and P.J. Harvey with the huge, driving sound of modern bands like Arcade Fire and The Killers. " More to come...</span>

The Radio Knights and singer Matt Dahan send their latest EP "Happen". These are local boys from the south shore of Boston, and they recorded and produced this effort themselves (I assume at home, though they didn't indicate). This record sounds good. Well recorded and well mixed; nice guitars, good harmonies. Good job! You get extra points for making an EP up front. After listening to your stuff on disc and on myspace, I'm wondering why the myspace mp3 actually sound better than the disc? Remastered maybe?

<br>
<br>

Occasionally the drums could use some work, occasionally the lead vocals could be stronger. However, my lingering qualms stem from confusion over who these guys are (as a band). They called themselves "power-pop" on their entry form. The EP cover has dark colors (blacks and browns) with yellow images of the band, the city, and other hard to identify stuff; the band is also hard to discern but the one visible guy looks like a Wolverine wannabe. So I'm already confused. The cover, and even their name, suggests 70s scag rockers, the form makes me anticipate bubble-gum, huh? The music is straight up pop-rock; a bit too smooth for me; makes me think of The Gin Blossoms or 3 Doors Down. Of course, the piano evokes Billy Joel who they mention as an influence. Again, it's really well executed – it's a great listen – just a bit background-y for me. A lot of "I really love you" songs and "we've gotta get outa here" songs. Is there any need for those after Bruce? These guys are really talented, now let's push the envelope a bit, shall we?
<br>
<br>

Check them out yourselves at <a href="http://www.myspace.com/ theradioknights">myspace.com/theradioknights</a>. (BTW, every band should have their own website, not just a myspace page).
