We had a quick chat with stupidDope founder Shane Breen, who gets straight to the point about what this opportunity means for selected artists.
What qualities does stupidDOPE look for in emerging artists?
Consistency and authenticity.
Why is your gig listing a good opportunity for Sonicbids artists?
stupidDOPE has spent the last four and a half years supporting the indie music community. We love good music and so do our readers. Our gig listing is a good opportunity because every indie artist is looking to expand his or her fanbase, and stupidDOPE is another great platform to make that happen.
What can an artist do to make his or her EPK stand out in an inbox full of submissions?
Make great records, make sure it’s mixed properly, and put thought into everything from your cover art to the final mix.
In what ways has working with Sonicbids been beneficial for stupidDOPE?
Sonicbids has been great for stupidDOPE. It has given us a streamlined way to receive music from emerging artists that are hungry and looking for exposure.
