3 New Artists You Need To Know

As you know, I don’t really post music on here really. It just confuses the message of my site and people start confusing this is a promotional outlet rather than a personal weblog for sharing information.

Today’s an exception though, so I’m going to post some new music. (Please read this before asking me for features)

This year, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with quite a few talented artists, so I decided to take the time today to showcase 3 of those acts with recent and/or upcoming projects:

Blackberry, WordPress & A Llama

This post is mainly something I’m posting so I can test out the WordPress for Blackberry application.

I installed it upon it’s release but still haven’t published anything with it – so I’m doing that now.

By the way, I know this is my first post in over a week, but I was fighting some crazy migraines for over a week now – so, yeah. (They’re gone now thankfully.)

Apparently, this app can also attach photos. Let’s end with that:
