Show #132: Prime

I fully admit that, like metal, hip pop and rap seem to be woefully under-represented here at Indy In-Tune.  This is by no means a sinister plan on my part.  I happen to be a huge fan of metal, and have been on record saying that I am slowly warming to hip hop.  It's just a matter of being able to make inroads into these two scenes.  Hopefully our recent forays will, as they did with singer/songwriters, open a floodgate of similar artists and allow us to broaden our horizons to welcome all performer of every genre in our city's great music scene.  (I'm talking to you too, jazz players.)

Prime comes to us by way of our good friend Jeff Sample, and after talking to him for five minutes, I just knew I had to get this guy on the show to tell his story.  If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that there are as many ways to try to market and make a name for yourself in music as there are styles of music to play, and this guy has a good chunk of them covered.  More than just an artist, Prime is a total package entertainer -- producer, screenwriter, actor, model, and all around cool guy as you'll learn in this interview.  He comes to Indiana with a fresh take on things and will, with luck, get everyone to step up their game just a little, or at least take a look at some different approaches to getting in front of their audience.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
