From now on, we’ll write about Bands About Bands (a Steemit contest) not only on Steemit but on our blog https://fortheloveofbands as well to hopefully direct more awesome bands and artists to Steemit and ultimately write about each other, because that’s what the independent music industry is about: engagement and support. Do not only think about your own career but other’s as well.
That’s the main reason we started the Bands About Bands contest: to support and reward engagement on Steemit! A contest for and by musicians.
Season 4 is already a few weeks on the way and you can check the announcement post here and we’ll also explain a bit and give you an update in this post. 12 reviews have already been written which will be added to our website over the course of the next few days and share on all of our socials.
15 SBD will be shared between all writers and bands/artists, so there’s something in it for everyone (besides extra attention).
In this episode, @ylich already wrote an impressive article about @helyorsini. Check it out by reading ‘Hely Orsini, a story, an album, a song‘.
