Canadian/Irish Keith Mosfet is the definition of an “artist”. Using inspiration from impressionist oil paintings and combining his background in electronic engineering, Keith took on the challenge of writing, recording and mixing the whole of his 2019 EP “Superficial Hypocrite”. “I’d have my vision, listen to the song and make changes in my head, record in layers, listen, then record and mix new ideas on top. Layering like in oil painting.” On his newest 2020 single “Breathe”, Keith continues to showcase his songwriting, creative and engineering skills, and shares his softer side. The single eludes to contemplating whether to be in a relationship or not and taking time to breathe, relax and see if feelings are genuine. Clearly heard in Keith’s new single are his indie-rock influences like Beck, MGMT, Jack White and Cage the Elephant but with his own unique, psychedelic twist, using vocal effects and layering synthesizers to showcase his unique artistry.

Nice. Very Beatles-ly 60s vibe. It's certainly the kind of thing that specific types of online radio might be interested in right now (Think XMU on SiriusXM) as well as campus radio. So what's the plan? If it's terrestrial radio, you'll need a story to sell before you even approach and independent plugger. That means more songs, social media stats, and a track record of playing live. Radio gets hundreds of unsolicited songs every week, so only the ones who have the best story (and make the most promotional noise) get heard. The best thing you can keep doing is to keep writing and recording. Only GREAT songs have a chance these days. The next best thing is to nurture the growth of your fanbase through social media. (Labels look at that sort of thing.) Determine who your audience is and use the appropriate platform. Facebook skews older. Snapchat and TikTok screw young and Twitter and Instagram are somewhere in the middle. YouTube is a must. Meanwhile, make friends with as many bloggers as you can. Every one of them wants to be able to say they discovered The Next Cool Thing. Good luck!
Cool animated video and catchy song that fits well with the aesthetic. Has a strong indie vibe but with some elements of folk, garage rock and classic rock. Good unique sound. For starters, I would definitely include a short bio, description of the track and lyrics along with the links to your socials / places to hear more music. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to provide as much info as possible in a clear and concise manner and make it easy for anyone to hear more if they'd like. Also, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm to help with the release of your next single and/or album. Once the pandemic ends too, make sure you play live as much as possible as this music sounds like it would do great in a live setting or at least for now perhaps you can participate in online streams and live concerts. Best of luck!
