Here at The New Rockstar Philosophy we’re big fans of Cover albums.
Elvis, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, all started their careers with cover albums. They are a solid investment of your time if you make it creative, honest, and choose some kick ass songs.
BUT lots of bands are turned off by the idea of doing cover albums. So why not give this amazing idea a try. CHANGE YOUR BANDS NAME FOR ONE ALBUM… Or MODIFY YOUR NAME.
Our favourite Brazilian, Spanish, Italian, English band SELTON recently came out with a brilliant strategy for getting their Covers out. You see Selton used to have a very nice gig playing acoustic beachy covers of Beatles songs on the streets of Barcelona. They still love that music and people still ask to hear their old Beatles covers. So they’ve taken used their creativity and recorded an whole album of Beatles covers BUT they’ve used a different name… NELSON.
So SELTON has become NELSON for one Beatles cover album! Brilliant.
In addition the band (SELTON) has used this opportunity to hype their new fan funded project (more info soon). They’ve got fan pics on their Facebook site with the “I’m with Selton” slogan. This is such a fun thing to do.
Now COPY IT FOR YOUR BAND!
