Danger Third Rail has a podcast/email demo audio subscriber thing!
I personally guarantee it won't be lame
Hi, I’m Travis from the “band” Danger Third Rail. Band is in quotes because, really, it’s just me recording songs in my San Francisco-based home recording studio/kitchen. You can read more about the “band” on their/its/my website.
This substack is designed to be a small, intimate affair. I often write songs and record demos in my home recording studio/kitchen and sometimes I like to share them with my friends and family. If that’s you, then schmash that subscribe button!
My normal outlet for the songs that I’m going to publish on here is my demos website at songs.travisbriggs.com. Recently I’ve been thinking about publishing an RSS feed of songs on that website, having an email subscribe list, and then pushing the latest RSS elements out via email to that list. Well it looks like substack gives me all of that and more, literally for free. I’m stoked to share what I’ve been working on, and to write new songs that you may like (or hate! but please don’t be indifferent to!)
I know every creator on every site tells you to smash the subscribe button, leave a comment, ring the bell, leave a like, and tell all your friends. It can get exhausting. What I’m asking for here is something different: if you know someone who personally knows me, why not share the link with them? Anyone who has listened to my music in the past is especially welcome to join. This is not meant to be a grand, get-famous-overnight scheme, it’s meant to be an intimate engagement with close friends and friends-of-friends.
If you’re someone else who found this post, great! Here are links to the type of music I’ll be sharing in case you’re interested:
Professionally mixed and published music, available on Spotify/iTunes/Amazon etc.
Demos and short song snippets, published as I write them!
What I was using before I made my own site, above. Lots of duplicates here and the newest stuff is all on songs.travisbriggs.com, but I leave it here in case you like Soundcloud or whatever.
With all that said, this is something of a new adventure, and I’m really excited to get started. In fact, I’m going to try and publish my first song (which is going to be my first ever song that I ever finished, back in college!) later this morning. If you’ve gotten this far, you might as well subscribe.
