Indefinite Hiatus

Hey all,

It’s been a few months since I’ve posted anything here. I wanted to drop in very quickly to let you know that Tight Mix will be going on an indefinite hiatus, since I am not really working in the music industry anymore. I mean, I still makes websites for bands, but beyond that I’ve sort of left the game for now. Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years, it’s been a hell of a ride!


What’s Your Plan for 2012?

Happy New Year

I know we are well into the new year already, but I still find myself thinking about things I want to accomplish this year, and how I’m going to make it all happen. 2011 was a fun and busy year for me, which is why posts on Tight Mix have dwindled a bit. I want to be able to find the time to blog more in 2012.

I also wanted to ask all of you — the musicians, industry hustlers, music fans, and tech nerds alike — what do you want to accomplish in 2012? Please leave a brief comment below so we can all riff back and forth to get each other pumped up before our (apparently) inevitable demise.

It’s e-mails like this that make it all worth it.

Casual Hearts

It’s so nice to receive e-mail from my contact form that isn’t spam or self-promotional nonsense. It’s rare, but when it happens, it’s awesome, brings a smile across my face, and restores my faith in humanity.

Hello Chris,

My name is Chase. This is nothing but a thank you. I just read your How to get your music on blogs article via CD Baby and I think it’s awesome that you take the time to give advice to aspiring artists and bands. Sincere advice from a successful source seems to be the most helpful and it’s very hard to come by at least in my experiences so I always admire anyone willing to do it and I vow to do the same upon achieving success in the future. So thank you for sharing the knowledge. Best wishes and take care.

You’re very welcome, Chase :)
