The Cheek of Her has been contacted by a couple of Radio Pluggers to promote some of the tracks from “Passionate Shit” to fitting stations in both the US and UK.
Interestingly enough the Promoters who got in contact from the United States only work with Triple-A artists, and searched us out specifically for this niche. This was a new term to me, but is actually a radio playlist format that fits The Cheek of Her perfectly and is other wise known as “Adult Album Alternative”, which encompasses mainly pop and rock music on the fringe of mainstream.
Courtesy of Wikipedia, check out what Triple-A playlist is all about:
“AAA artists take influence from early 90s jangle pop (Gin Blossoms, Barenaked Ladies, Goo Goo Dolls), acoustic folk rock (Indigo Girls, Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley, Sarah McLachlan, Fiona Apple, Jewel), rock and roll (Sheryl Crow, Hootie & the Blowfish, Dave Matthews), and the moody electronics of trip hop (Portishead). The music played has gained significant exposure for artists who were ambitious, intellectual, or idiosyncratic, yet still accessible enough to meet the requirements of mainstream radio programmers who wanted more sophisticated music that wasn’t loud or overly disturbing.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adult_album_alternative
Ohhhh how good it feels to have a niche!! (Phew!)
Will keep you posted if we get played anywhere of course…
