Im making this suggestion on the behalf of Dean Watson. Heres the link to his myspace page with samples from his first solo album ( actually its the full album that youre able to hear) . Dean Watson is also 1/2 of the lineup in Wheres the Nine ( http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=4017).

Hmm...it says on the myspace that you can buy the tracks. Doesnt that qualify as being released?

He definitely released "officially" those tracks, but it's difficult to say in which measure do they make an "album".

Good stuff nonetheless.

Hey all!
 
Thanks for the nice comments.  I didn't respond back right away because I am waiting on my distributor to either yay or nay it.  They told me I was accepted to the label, then they came back and asked for a CD to be sent, which I have done, and they have recieved, and confirmed receipt.  They have mentioned they would get back to me shortly. 
 
I did say in my private email to some of you that I was not signed but had download capability.  If that is not acceptable, hey, I'm fine with that, just needed to know.  If you all decide that 's ok for submission and/or review, let me know, othewise I understand and I'll get back to you as soon as I hear back from my distributor!

Dean, PA is an album-oriented database (just like RateYourMusic is too, for example), that is why sorting the pieces as an "individual release", with tracklist, cover-art of some sort, etc., would make the addition just a formality. Other than that, I must say again that I appreciate your talent and hope you make it big! Thumbs Up

Harmonium,
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand.  I already have track listings, CD Cover art ready to go etc. etc.  Are you suggesting I might get submission if I do that?
 
Sorry for my confusion.

Well, we need to have material in the form of "album(s)" to have bands/projects added to our database. This doesn't necessarily mean that the material needs to be released on CD by a record company; self-released digital files are also OK, provided those few conditions are fulfilled. For example, check out this page of a digital self-released album: http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=23206
Basically, the only differences between it and the material you have available on MySpace are:
- the material was released as an album (--> album title) (--> visual identity of the release, ie the cover) consisting of the succession of certain pieces (-->tracklist, the musical "identity" of the album)
- that's it, actually.

Maybe I'm not getting something here.Confused

First off! What    is     all      the     fuss? Add the guy and worry about the details later. It's more than obvious at this stage that it's only business technicalities and formalities that have to be ironed out between Dean and the record company. I was one of the guys who he contacted and I've listened to his new music. Just like Where's The Nine I'll be one of the first guys to review it. We're lucky to have someone like him interrested in our site for Christ sake. ( insert sound effect of vibrationbaby pulling his hair out and bashing his head against the wall HERE ). C'mon guys!

It's not fuss Ian, just a little misunderstandng
 
As Alex said, the PA is album-oriented - we are here to review albums - listing an artist without an album is therefore meaningless so we have to check first.

Just had a listen recently. It's not the same heavy complex fusion as Where's the Nine but equally enjoyable and certainly progressive (always the main factor of course) if you ask me.
I'd say: add as fast as you can guys of the jazz rock/fusion team !  Thumbs Up

Hey All,
 
Still working with my distributor on getting this CD out!  These things sure take time!  In the meantime, "Unsettled" was reviewed  by the nice folks at Progressive Ears ..

Can't find the review but if Progressive Ears will let the guy on their site why can't we let him on here.

Just a heads up that my CD is in the manufacturing stages now and will be up on CDBaby and Abstract Logix shortly - certainly before the end of the month.
