Music with your Coffee

August 23, 2007

Well, we had this idea that it might also be fun to include a CD with their Wake Up & Make a Difference Blend, something they could listen to while they enjoy the brew.

We asked several local independent artists if they would allow us to use one of their tunes. Six agreed and I received the last CD this week. I put together a design that goes along with our coffee look, included album covers, names and sites, and printed out twenty copies. We will see what happens.

Let me give you links to their Myspace sites.

Joel Limpic
Zach Payne
Ryland Russell
Aaron Hansel
Maria Long
Nick Fry

I just went to Myspace and searched for local indie artists and then went to their site. Out of all of the singers I invited nine and six responded. I listened to a lot of other artists that didn’t really fit what I was trying to do.

If you are interested in doing this yourself I would start locally and work out. Some of the artists suggested others that they thought might be interested. That is how I ended up with Nick Fry from West Virginia.

Why not purchase an album and let them know how you heard about their music? I think you will be impressed with the music.

    FYI, we gave away CD’s this weekend and had some great response. It was a great mix. We finally received news clips from our back to school day, two TV stations came by to report.

    It made for a nice mix.
