Publisher Launches Roots Music Press Release Distribution Site

Roots music performers have gone largely ignored by the media for too long. Now music magazine publisher Dave King launches a press release distribution site exclusively for blues/jazz/folk and roots musicians.

The activities of roots musicians have gone largely ignored by the major media for too long. Now the publishers of online music publication Cross Harp Chronicles would like to change that. They have launched a press release distribution site/publicity firm exclusively for root musicians and root music industry professionals. This would include, but is not limited to Blues/Jazz/Folk/World and Root Rock musicians.

"We became aware of exactly how little press Blues musicians received about two years ago, when we found the only press that the second largest event in Blues music received appeared as a short article in the daily newspaper where this event was held; this although the event generates over $1.5 million dollars in revenue for this city every year and has grown every year over the twenty four years since its inception," says publisher Dave King.

"Although these musical genres are covered largely by niche magazines, they get little coverage by the major media. When they do, it is largely localized. We knew something had to be done.

So identifying and following the coverage that roots musicians did receive over the following two years, Dave King created a data base of media contacts including daily/weekly/underground newspapers; blogs , websites and forums; and radio and television stations worldwide. And identified the journalists, bloggers, webcasters, etc., that covered each genre. This was no small task as this data base now includes thousands of sources.

"We knew that the journalists who had reported on different genres would be more than likely to do the same again. As they were already warm to the idea and in many instances were fans of the genres on which they would write, we were careful to note each and of what musical genres they wrote. We then categorized each. Although there is definitely some overlapping in the media contacts, we see little good in sending all press releases to the same contacts. "

So the result is a publicity firm that caters exclusively to roots musicians. King brings with him almost thirty five years of experience working with the media as a journalist/publisher/promoter.

Just Roots PR offers affordable assistance to those needing help in creating press releases.

Jaxon Film Fest Accepts First Film Submittance, Christopher Witherspoon's "Rage"

Jaxon Film Fest has accepted its very first film submission. This is Chris Witherspoon's production Rage. A modern-day morality tale involving a young 30 something male protagonist who confronts horror in his otherwise mundane life, this is a movie that gives several entirely new twists (note: this is not a deliberate play on the main character's name, Dennis Twist) to the horror genre.

Inspired by Stephen Spielberg's movie Duel starring Dennis Weaver, and Matthew Myers in Halloween,…

Hello just roots,

Thanks for the add. I did not see your friendship invite. I am so sorry. I just noticed it. I am a traditional and a roots singer and guitar player. I do a lot of traditional blues. But I love my roots blues too.

My invite cut me off at 200. Id like your help since you are a knowledgable sort and collector. Are there in existence any videos of Memphis Minnie, and can you recomend a cd that features her guitar playing? One of the chapters in my class deals with women in blues, I have one Lizzie record but its all her singing and Id like to present her playing. Got any suggestions? I hope our differences in opinion wont prevent a friendship. Take care.
