I think it's time to start a thread similar to the one below that Ellis originally started for Essentials, transposing our efforts to The Day After Everything Changed. Let's start with some reviews on Amazon, since the CD is now digitally available there. Be honest! Tell the world what you think!
Here's the link for you to post your review. Shall we have another guys vs. gals?
The Day After Everything Changed

We are creating this Forum to allow a place to discuss promotional activity for fans of my music.
Here's a way to get empowered to spread the word for the Essentials album.
The web is probably the most important way to spread non commercial music around the world. You can help by doing the following with Essentials, then come back here and let people know where they can chime in.
1) OTHER DISCUSSION SITES FOR ACOUSTIC SONGWRITERS, -- there are numerous discussion groups around the web regarding songwriters. Myspace, aol, THE FOLK LIST, THE DJ LIST, ETC all have chat places on this kind of music. Please leave reviews, and let us know when you find a place.
2) SONGWRITER'S DISCUSSION BOARDS... like mineded artists like Neil Young, Bob Dyaln, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Patty Griiffin, Dar williams, Jonatha Brooke, Richard Shindell, all your favorite songwriters have discussion boards, you an drop a line there, or start a discussion thread about why the music matters. Pick your favorites and run with it, and come back an tell us where you have been. So others can comment on your thread, Let us know where you've posted!
3) COMMERCIAL MUSIC SITES ON THE WEB...
Amazon.cbabyom, cd , MTV.com, CMT.com, etc., commercial sites that sell music or promote muscians have places to leave reviews, go find them, and let us know where you've posted!
4) Banners... I have no idea how to set these up so fans could post them on their sites, does anyone know how to make one? We could post here for those that wanted to use it... Let me know...
Start a myspace page and use your favorite song as the soundtrack to your site.
Let us know what you have done out on the net, provide us with links to where you've been.
and thanks for helping out!
