List for New Age & World Music Promotional Services.

Being the site host of a popular music blog, I get emails from artists worldwide requesting a contact list for music promoters and marketing services in the New Age, Instrumental and World music genres.

While New Age Music World is a non-profit site in entirety, and I try to remain neutral on who I recommend, I am happy to offer my assistance by providing the names and contact information for the best music promoters and marketing specialists I work with on a regular basis.

I have worked with dozens of music promoters, producers, and public relations persons, by writing reviews or interviewing their clients, so I can tell you there are many excellent music promoters available, in addition to the ones I would like to tell you about today. Nearly everyone I have worked with over the years is a leading professional in regards to their capacity with client based publicity and music promotional services.

Promotional services do vary, as does their marketing strategies, level of assistance, and areas of expertise. Many if not all marketing strategists offer an artist initial phone consultation, to determine an artist’s specific needs, and at what level they can assist best, which lets the artist decide upfront, before promotion begins.

Various levels with marketing strategy can include production, graphics, manufacturing, distribution, licensing, online radio airplay promotion, and an all-inclusive list of client based services for artists wanting to greatly increase their chances with succeeding in the music industry.

The New Age Music Circle Forum, operated by marketing strategist Suzanne Doucet is another organization I would highly recommend for artists wanting to be proactive in their own music promotion. The New Age Music Circle is an international online community forum where artist in the New Age, World Music, and related sub-genres can share music, videos, and post information about special events and participate in discussions on a variety of music related topics.

The Circle Forum is open to everyone, from leading industry professionals and artists, but membership is open to music fans too. The Circle Forum is an excellent place, where artists at every level can enhance their presence in the music industry through self-promotion, regardless of whether they are employing the services of a professional music promoter or not. Visit the New Age Music Circle at NewAgeMusik.Ning.com.

Here is an alphabetized email contact list of the New Age, Instrumental and World Music promoters I have worked with on a regular basis over the years, and would recommend to artists. Please keep in mind there are a number of excellent music promotional services to choose from, so the marketing professionals listed below are the music promoters I know best, and who specialize in the New Age, Instrumental and World music genres.

Your Friend In Music, John P. Olsen, editor/host for New Age Music World.

New Age Music World has a new CD submit policy. I have decided to revise my CD Album Submit Policy due to the increasing amount of email requests I receive for album reviews and interviews from artists, music promoters and producers.

While I enjoy writing album reviews about international artists, and their current new release, I have been spending too much time responding to daily emails requesting an album review.

The new CD album acceptance policy was implemented because of the overwhelming response for album reviews requests by email correspondence, which takes up a significant amount of my time to reply to everyone who writes me. It is my hope to spend more time writing album reviews, and less time on daily email correspondence. You may send 1 physical CD album and (press kit if available) to the address on my profile page.

Read the complete CD Submit Policy for NewAgeMusicWorld.com on my profile page. Thank you for your interest and visits to New Age Music World, one of the top new age music blogs worldwide. Big Stock Photo copyright – Ihfgraphics.
