It’s no secret that the music industry has changed. With the emergence of social media and the distribution of music evolving through the years from vinyl, to cassette tapes, CDs, mp3s and now online streaming, artists now have the power to get their music out there and potentially heard by people all over the world. This is fantastic news for indie artists, but also means that there is more music out there and more artists competing to stand out and reach an audience.
When looking for ways to connect to your audience online, Digital PR is an often overlooked but extremely effective way to build exposure for your music and build your fanbase.

To understand Bobby Hustle, you’ll have to understand the origins of this Seattle, Washington native. Bringing reggae to a city known for Hendrix, Nirvana and the grunge alike, Bobby reminds the masses that Seattle has room for reggae. Representing Seattle and its own islands with the support of Dynasty Records, Bobby Hustle invites you to his...well, his hustle.
Growing up on Bainbridge Island, just west of Seattle, Bobby was inspired by a diverse range of reggae artists such as Garnet Silk, Cocoa Tea, Beres Hammond, Lutan Fyah, Taurus Riley, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Vybz Kartel. Bobby stays true to the message of the island life and combines it with the current dancehall culture that holds its own in the Pacific Northwest.
Through Dynasty Records, Bobby Hustle has released songs getting strong play in the dancehall as well as on radio airwaves the world over. On the Alive riddim released in April 2011 is "On The Run" and on GT Taylor’s Steady Flow riddim his "Search For It" is enjoying great rotation in Jamaica. On the summer 2011 Party Town riddim he has released "Tun It Up", which is currently on the Hot ‘n’ Fresh Top 15 chart in Holland.
Aside from his work with Dynasty Records, he has recorded songs for Delly Ranx’s Pure Music label, Bread Back Productions, ZJ Sparks and the aforementioned GT Taylor of IRIE FM. His performance style on stage is full of energy and he creates a mood that gets the fans involved. Performances have included a 2011 West Coast tour of the U.S. with Jamaica's Konshens as well as work regionally on festivals and as an opening for artists like Gappy Ranks, Serani, Mr. Vegas, Lutan Fyah, Perfect, Delly Ranx, Turbulence, etc.
Bobby Hustle's 2011 mixtape CD release, GO HARDER features a collection of 21 songs that can compete with any of the "hardest" sets on the street. His music fits in with the overall mission of the Dynasty Records crew, to bring modern reggae to a wider audience of listeners and in so doing build the "dynasty" for reggae worldwide. Considered an up-and-coming talent, the support and engineering expertise of Dynasty Records allows Bobby to be a total artist. His knack for writing strong hooks and flowing on the latest trends in modern reggae are clear signs that this in artist whose time to shine is here.

Are you committing any of these social media sins? I’ve been personally manning the Jaden Social Facebook and Twitter pages since starting the company in my bedroom back in November 2011. And let me say straight up, getting my hands dirty right from day 1 has been one of the most valuable and eye-opening experiences I could ask for as a business owner, musician and marketer. In 18 months I have gone from checking in barely a couple of times a week to deal with a handful of interactions, to spending upwards of 12 hours a day monitoring and managing more than 100 interactions 7 days a week (thank you Chrome for the ability to permanently pin tabs to the browser window). Now I would say I’m a pretty chilled out dude for the most part, but there are some things that musos do (and say) online that really make me cringe. Since I too was once a blissfully ignorant and, at times, cringe-worthy muso, I’m not going to sit here and get self-righteous about it. No, I’m going to do the next funnest (that’s a real word, I swear) thing and compile a list of 7 deadly sins I feel are damaging the online efficacy of all my musician friends’ content & promotion strategies on Facebook & Twitter.
