Help Us Force These People to Talk To Us

Recently, a bunch of college kids bugged the hell out of Talib Kweli on his MySpace page to get him to perform at their school and guess what? It worked. SoulBounce is still in it's infancy, and you wouldn't believe how hard it is tracking down artists, especially the ones signed to major labels. Breaking down those PR walls is like squeezing blood from a turnip, and that's only if you know where to find the "correct" turnip in the first place. Although I'm the HNIC of this here Soulternet, I don't take myself too seriously to launch a campaign similar to the students of the University of the Pacific.

Sometimes getting the attention of an artist can only be accomplished through concentrated, dedicated harrassment. What follows is my current shortlist of artists that I want on the podcast, mainly because [1] I love them, [2] I want to know what they're up to and [3] it increases the profile and value of this site:

Send them mail, leave them comments. Link them to this post. Let them know they are loved and coveted. We're already aware that Maxwell reads or has at least seen SoulBounce, and as much as we would love having him on, the hedge his label has built around him is so thick and trecherous that he blogs looking over his shoulder. I'll continue to fantasize, but I think getting him anytime soon would be impossible.

Bug him here.
