About our friend Linda…
"Linda ran her own Arts Consulting firm, SOLOROHM Associates, for over 10 years. She specialized in helping small not-for-profits and individual artist integrate their PR, Marketing and in many cases Development plans. She worked with artists in several fields, contemporary dance, new music, contemporary classical music & jazz, photography and fine art, theatre and performance art. She closed her firm two years ago to return to performing (she is a jazz vocalist).) Since then, she has taken on only a few small, short term marketing and PR projects & artists that personally resonate for her. She has worked to promote jazz vocalist Elaine Dame, saxophonists John Goldman & Chris Greene – and most recently supported Chris in efforts to promote his latest CD ‘A Group Effort.’
She decided to begin these workshops when she recognized the serious growing need among her colleagues. Paying gigs decreasing, venues expecting artists to do most if not all of the work to promote themselves, etc. Jazz musicians have little to no training in PR and marketing (why would they) – and little to no money to spend on having someone do it for them. Linda wants to change all that – her workshop is the first step. "
