Out of Town is a joint podcast/studio session created by Nick Tate and Storm Paul. We are based in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.
In regional music scenes and the music industry, networks are key. As the saying goes, “It all depends on who you know.” While networking is an absolute must for bands who want to make it big, sometimes certain obstacles make it hard to find the right crowd.
One of the most important obstacles for a band to overcome is location. Often, the further a band is located from a major city, the tougher it is to gain interest. Talented bands use up time and money driving into the city just for a gig.
We created Out of Town to celebrate the bands and music that are literally from “out of town.”
Our goal is twofold:
1. To provide an outlet that for artists outside the realm of big cities, helping them gain the exposure they deserve. We’re just two guys who love music. Unlike bigger music blogs, we don’t overlook artists in favor of popular talent. We’re not constantly combing the internet for music news just to fill a content quota. We want to hear from you – whether you’re just starting out, or you’ve been at it for years.
2. To dive deep instead of report. We’re curious as to what emotions and inspirations drive the artists we host, and if their location plays a part in their creative process. We want to talk with you, not at you. Come be a part of the conversation!
But… what if you’re from a major city? No worries! Out of Town functions both ways – while our main goal is to help smaller bands get noticed, we also offer a homey atmosphere for bigger bands who are used to busy city touring. You get to record a laid-back session in the suburbs, and we promote you. It’s a win-win for both of us!
Bottom line: as long as you play music, we suburbians have your back.
Here’s how we can help you:
You come into our studio space and play a few songs. We ask you some questions in between the songs. Once we post your session on our website, we’ll spread the word about it in as many places possible.
We promise to work hard to promote your music. You can trust us to be a valuable connection in your musical journey.
