Lauren Zettler on Lyrical Venus Radio! Tues 9-10am

Singer-Songwriter Lauren Zettler

Singer-Songwriter Lauren Zettler

I actually discovered Lauren Zettler in a rather roundabout way. It all started with Bob Baker. He’s a smart guy who has lots of books and blogs with tips for independent musicians and authors to market themselves. Definitely worth checking out for anyone who is looking for help in the marketing department, because many of his ideas translate across mediums, so if you’re not a musician, try subbing out the word musician for whatever it is you do and see if the concept still applies.

Anyhoo, Bob wrote a post about using Google tools for promoting your music and in that post he mentioned Cameron Mizell’s post about helping Lauren create a mailing list complete with free download for signing up. I told you it was roundabout! Ah, the beauty of the web!

So, before even hearing a note of her music, I know that Lauren a savvy DIY type of gal. Her bio talks about her journey to musicianhood, from the childhood dream, to the detours due bouts of practicalness, to the lighting-bolt epiphany that the “jealous tears” at every musical performance she attended were probably not necessary and that she should follow her heart. At this point I feel like she knows me already and I’m way inspired.

Then I get to her MySpace page. And Lauren’s music is lovely. It reminds me a bit of Ingrid Michaelson, who long time readers know is one of my favorites. Lauren’s songs are sometimes quirky, sometimes melancholy, but always give some insight into the human heart, and always that sweet voice. I’m sold!

And so it is with great joy that I announce Lauren will be joining us on Lyrical Venus this Tuesday for an interview and to preview a couple songs from her upcoming EP! If you want to get a taste before then, check out Lauren’s official website, MySpace or YouTube channel where you can listen to (and buy) songs and find links to plenty more sites where Lauren has profiles. Her first EP Call Me Out is available on CDbaby.com and Lauren Zettler - Call Me Out - So Much Here and if you sign up to her mailing list I’m sure she will let you know when you can get the new EP on those sites as well!

Don’t forget to join me Tuesday February 17th from 9-10am Central for lots of great music by female signer-songwriters plus the interview! Tune in to KRUU-LP 100.1 FM in Fairfield, or stream it live from the station website kruufm.com, anywhere in the world with an internet connection!

    So I need to stream it live? no downloads later?… Tell Lauren, Dave Zeman says hi… and that I have always loved her songs live from her bedroom….. and yes, I have always thought she was on the forefront of internet marketing.

    Hi Dave!

    If all goes well, you should be able to download a podcast version of the interview later! It sometimes takes several months for me to get those up though, it all depends on how much help I need from the station manager and his available time. I’m getting more self sufficient though. I’ll let you know when it’s up, and I’ll tell Lauren hi!
