This is a "Digital Distribution Only" release, and will soon be available on ITunes, Amazon, Zune, and many other digital download sites.


I have tried many different services for internet promotion and although some of them work well I have recently found one that works better than all of the others I have yet to see. As a producer, I am currently using this service to help promote KelC, and it has resulted in many new fans for her by getting her airplay right next to some very famous recording artists, just like getting played on a major commercial radio station only to millions of listeners all over the world. Just that alone is worth more than the cost of the service, but they also provide you with useful reports that show you how much airplay your got, how many new fans you got from each song that was played within a given week, where those fans are located, the age group and gender of the fans and much more.

If you go directly to this site and create an artist account you will immediately start paying for airplay credits. However, if you follow click here, you will receive 200 free airplay credits and can try it first to see if you like it before spending any money at all. The link I gave you is an invitation link provided by KelC. Both you and she will receive 200 free airplay credits when you open an artist account. There is no obligation to continue after using your bonus credits.


Venessa Vicoso, who most recently sang "Heart To God" on the Hazleton Rox CD, sang "Cold December Night" last year, and sang "Give Me Truth" on the Child Prodigies CD, will be joining KelC to sing back up in the studio and on live performances after her band is totally assembled.


We have just received the digital delivery report, which shows which companies "Hazleton Rox" has been delivered to. You can find this report on the Hazleton Rox Status page.
