Granted.. this is big dudes guys like guthrie or tony macalpine..
but I kind of liked how they did their "sign up for our mailing list and we'll give you a couple of our songs!" kind of thing. I pretty much got their albums after a few listens.
If you are new to the scene, I highly doubt people would want a whole album from you to begin with. A song or two wouldn't hurt though. The Mailing list idea is a good idea too because now there is another way to get in touch with your fans and link them to your other social media pages.
