Hey guys!  I just want to thank you for being involved, in your own way, in our mission to really bring independent music to the world's ears.  As a passionate, devoted musician since the age of 10, I have spent most of my life (countless hours and money out of pocket) trying to "make it".... reaching out to every corner of the corporate music industry - record labels, management firms, radio stations, promo companies, entertainment lawyers, magazines ...you name it - all to get recognized by the public.  Most doors were closed and I found myself in a brutal cycle of catch 22.  Over the years, I learned that getting popular had little to do with talent...though it SHOULD!  

Many artists succumbed to the phrase, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" - which is all fine and dandy if you're ABLE to join 'em!!  Hahaha....  I vowed to one day make a difference.   So here's our difference and I'd like to proudly recite, "if you can't join 'em, BEAT 'EM!"

So here we are, launching HavUHeard Radio - a hybrid radio station meets promo company, at no cost to the artists.  If I personally think a band rocks, I'm going to share it with the world, just like we did when we were kids.  We will go beyond the call of duty to spotlight weekly talent, host awesome contests for BOTH artists AND listeners (because it's fun, and I want to enjoy this), involve fans any way we can, host podcasts and cool interviews, and expand into our own CONCERTS to expose these talented artists while raising funds through our non-profit organization HavUHelped, Inc. to give back to our community.  Many angles here, and we will build and grow them all.

So thank you - bands, for sharing your music and allowing us to push you.  And music lovers, for supporting all the do-it-yourselfers everywhere!

Welcome to the HavUHeard Radio local music community.   Let's DO THIS!!
