I've grown accustomed to the September slump. I don't know what it is, but my work as a music publicist keeps slowing down for the month of September and perhaps beyond. But this year, it's a little different. Yes, the September slump is happening in a sense, but a lot is also in flux.
First and foremost, I must announce that Bad Apples are on a break for now, as the band's members have other things going. Therefore, band PR is on hiatus for now, and thus I will say that my stint as their publicist has ended with the possibility of a second turn in the future.
Of course, The Escape are still regrouping following Stuart's departure, and they're working on new material as well. In August, I put band PR on hold indefinitely, given the aforementioned circumstances, plus the fact that our latest round of EP promotion wasn't going anywhere. I will continue to keep you updated on what's happening with The Escape and my work for them.
The Josh and Pete Band are still trying to raise funds to record a professional studio album (see earlier entries in this blog), but they may also have some other intriguing endeavors in the works. They've put band PR on hold for now, until we once again have something more concrete to promote.
And I may get a new client soon. But it's always a big "maybe" until the deal is final!
