We Help Bands Connect With Music Fans

Effective social media music management simplified

When it comes to profiling music in 2022 the key to social media marketing is to focus on the quality, consistency, and engagement. If bands are hoping to have their music discovered, then social media needs to entertain as well as inform. 

Music fans have an abundance of content available to them, but by publishing interesting posts it can help encourage them to focus their valuable time on YOU. 

Ignoring social media or not using it correctly means  that bands could be missing out on opportunities.  If the thought of being more active on social media to promote your band overwhelms you, or maybe causes stress and anxiety; now is the time to take action.

Utilising 17+ years of social media business experience, Stampede founder Rob Town (MA) is qualified to plan and create digital strategies that can help a band’s profile be more visible to their online audiences, potential new fans, and the music industry.

social media marketing for bands


Social media is a powerful tool that helps build fanbases via visible organic and cost effective posts, but only if platforms like Facebook are used in the correct manner.


If you want your audience and the music industry to take your band seriously then social media is a potent way to demonstrate necessary social proof.


Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have the means to help bands gather, build, and nurture great experiences for music fans that enables trust and loyalty.


For bands trying to secure gigs, tours, and festivals; showcasing PR and demand on social media is a proven way to get the music industry's attention

“Social media has been truly important in enabling me to have a career in the music industry, both as a musician and a music business person. The advent of MySpace in 2003 gave my band Panic Cell effective ways to fast track our music to audiences worldwide and connect with new fans in ways that were previously unavailable to bands. Social media in 2020 and beyond is a crucial tool in a band’s toolkit, if they hope to connect with their fans and sow seeds for meaningful relationships with them, potential new audiences, and the music industry. We are in the age of expression, a time where consumers have a wealth of content to choose from everyday. Strategy, effort, investment, and creativity have never been more important if bands are to truly connect with people that can help benefit their music careers. Social media, when done right and well, is an integral cog in the wheel of music promotion.”
