Some (like me) did not have great luck with iTunes downloading our pre-ordered Eps in a timely manner to say the least, and some of us chose to download from Amazon (pre-loads) while waiting for iTunes. But as the EPs became available to download, twitter erupted with DA happiness!!!!!
Shelley was one of the first lucky fans!
Chad let us know, too!!!

While we were flailing over the Orion EP with the songs (Numb, Up All Night, Invincible, and Say Me) on repeat, David breezed on to twitter squeeing about something completely unrelated but perfectly understandable!!!!

US Weekly on American Idol Reboot: DAVID!!!!!!!
American Idol alums David Archuleta and Kimberley Locke support ABC’s reboot of the singing competition. Archuleta and Locke shared their thoughts with Us Weekly and they’re both excited for the revival of the show that helped launch their careers.
Archuleta, who was the runner-up on the show in 2007 when David Cook was crowned the season 6 winner, told Us that he hopes the new judges and producers will focus on talent more so than those cringeworthy auditions. (<–ahem~ that’s 2008 and season 7! 😉
“I know I’m sappy, but I think it would be nice to put more emphasis on the good talent … it’s not just we’re going to make fun of you, that always hurts me to watch,” the “Up All Night” singer, 26, shared. “I think it’s super sad, playing with people’s emotions. I think Idol could do without it. They can get millions of people watching without having to humiliate people.”
Archuleta added that he’s also excited for Katy Perry to judge contestants. David is excited to start his touring on June 1st for his new EP Orion. “I felt really unsure of myself and depressed for a while, but I learned to come trust my own voice and I wanted to share that message with my fans.” Archuleta tells Us
“I love Katy, she’s always honest. She’s nice, but speaks her mind,” he told Us. “I think people will feel refreshed hearing from her. I think that’s why Idol worked because Simon [Cowell] was so brutally honest.”

Ideas for promotion~
An article shared by Eric Alper
@EricAlper ~music lover and music industry & trivia expert extraordinaire shared an insightful article on twitter yesterday with tips for artists to increase the visibility of their music and artistry.
5 Often Overlooked Music Promotional Campaign Ideas
While many of the conventional methods of promoting yourself as an artist may seem tired and dull, there are several frequently overlooked ways of engaging with your fans through your mailing list that will keep interested and eager for more!__________________________
Guest post by Team Fanbridge of the Fanbridge Blog
If you’re tired of the same by-the-numbers promotional campaign, there’s still a number of ways to keep active and engage your mailing list. With these 5 tips, you can easily keep your fans intrigued.
Let’s say you have an upcoming guest spot in a tv/web series or your music is being featured in a popular show or movie. You wouldn’t want fans to miss out, right? Let them know where to catch your appearance with an email campaign. You could also set up an auto-recurring social campaign to keep fans in the loop leading up to your big debut.
Whether it’s on a global scale or right at home, there’s always a cause that people are passionate about. Why not combine your influence with that passion to help facilitate change? Try starting a fundraising campaign or simply speak out to shed light on an issue. To rally your fans behind you, create an email campaign and spread the word. Your audience may even share your view and speaking out about the cause could not only spread awareness but also strengthen their bond with you.
Nabbed an interview spot on the morning news or just chatting it up on the local “morning zoo”? Let your fans know when & where to tune in! Create a geo-targeted campaign around where you’re interviewing to shout out when local fans can catch you on air. And in case they missed it, share footage/audio with fans in an email campaign if the clip’s available online.
If you’re not quite big enough to land a local interview (don’t worry, you’ll get there!) or are just having a slow season, you can always stay connected with fans with a quick online Q&A. Schedule social and email campaigns to let your audience know when to send in their questions. Then, prepare an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on a subreddit related to what you do or create a hashtag to make it easy to track fans’ questions on Twitter. You can even make use of our Questions feature for a simple, organized way to answer questions while building your mailing list.
Don’t lie, EVERYONE has those go to #MondayMotivation jams or songs you belt out in the shower to brighten your morning. Keep your fans engaged with a quick and easy playlist of your personal favorites! Gather a handful of your favorite songs or songs that have inspired you and your work to share with your audience. For Spotify users, you can include your playlist in an email campaign in case your subscribers aren’t following you on Spotify yet.
And if you’re looking for a little playlist inspiration, check out our SpotiFridaysplaylist series!

I’ll be adding more as the day goes on, so stay tuned!! BUt for now, take a nap and get energized because it’s going to be a very exciting next 24 hours!!!

Mary Lou (Pastel) passed this article on to David and his manager Gina Orr!
Let’s hope they see it as it has some great tips and actually things David and his team have done some of in the past.
** Hoping for a facebook live chat with David tomorrow or SOON so we can share our appreciation for #OrionEP and the new UAN mv more personally to David. Also, his fb live chats have been so good!!
I shamelessly through a tweet out requesting a live chat for Friday. 😉
Gina Orr (David’s mgr) has created a nice spotify playlist of David’s music!! It would be a nice idea to create one, too with his new Orion EP tracks as playlists can be shared (and that streaming helps!!) CLICK below to see this list on Spotify.
Also, we are hoping that Team Archie will have some special appearances lined up for David to promote his EP, new music video, AND his upcoming tour! We’re hoping for this and know that Team A is working behind the scenes. Hoping for some promo interviews and appearances!!! My personal dream would be for David to sing his new music (appear) on The Kathie lee and Hoda show on NBC! He and his music would be a perfect fit!!!
*Dave Kusek’s “New Artist Model” For Promoting Your Music
Another article published recently by Dave Kusek lays out specific ways for new music to be promoted. I’ll list the topics, and you can CLICK HERE to head over and read through them more thoroughly. I’ve posted the email section, though, as email has become a very instrumental tool in artists reaching their fans with direct communication.
1. Live Music Promotion
2. Use Social MEdia To Promote Your Gigs And Appearances
3. Promote Your Music and Sell It On your Website
4. Reach Out To Music Blogs <–( And I think Fan Blogs, too! 🙂 )
5. Collaborate with Other Musicians
6. Promote with E mail
Your email list is an extremely valuable tool to promote your music. Unlike collaboration and blogs, your email list is marketing to your current fan base. If someone signed up for your email list, they want to hear from you, so take advantage of it! Remember, your emails should be driving your fans to your website, so you want to include links.
The obvious use of an email list is to let your fans know when you have an album coming out or a tour. You can also use your email list to send fans to your blog. Remember, you want to get your fans on your website as often as possible.
What are some of your ideas for how to promote? or who you’d like to see interview David? Let us know!
