I just got off the phone with Brian of the Acoustic Rainbow
series of radio promotion CDs. I brought up the subject of Dementia Artists. He was unfamiliar with the term, but said that he'd be interested in hearing from any musician.
Basically, you submit a song for a compilation. edited It costs $675 per song
(thanks for the heads-up ericcoleman
). Whether this is worth it to you to get beyond live appearances and Dr. D. is up to you. Can't hurt to make inquiries. I assume standard union rates apply if the song actually gets played on the air.
The Acoustic Rainbow CDs (and other compilations put out by the company) are more folk/old-timey than demented, but you never know what might interest them. My guess would be along the lines of Riverfolk and Carla Ulbrich. Worth a look.
