Programming note: Artist of the Day will return in February




Happy New Year! Before we here at SoundcheckCorp. get too far into 2013, we'd like to make a quick programming note. For the month of January, our daily "Artist of the Day" feature is going on a brief hiatus. It will return around Feb. 1.

This seems like a good time to recap what the Artist of the Day feature is all about. It stemmed from tbt*'s annual Ultimate Local Music Guide, in which we profile dozens of artist spanning all genres from all around Tampa Bay and beyond. Over the past three-plus years, we've featured a new one of these artists each day on Soundcheck, in order to give them exposure to a wider audience. It's really helped us discover some great new music.

We say it all the time, but it bears repeating: We're always looking for new artists to profile around Tampa Bay. So if you're an artist, or you know someone in a band, please drop us a line

Some guidelines:

-- Tell us all about the band -- the lineup, your history, the style of music you play, etc.

-- If you've got a photo of the band, please send it. 

-- Send us any music you like, too, either as a download, an .mp3 or a link to a streaming site (like Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc.)

-- If you have any big shows coming up, let us know. We try to spotlight artists who are performing around town.

Send all of this stuff to, and we may just spotlight your band on Soundcheck. You can also mail or drop off hard copies of press materials at tbt*/Tampa Bay Times, 490 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg 33701. And you can always tweet us at @tbtsoundcheck

See you in February!

-- Jay Cridlin, tbt*
