It is brought to you by Mage Records a Celtic American-based record label based in New Orleans designed to inspire, promote and share independent Irish, Folk, Celtic Music with the world. Mage Records is owned and operated by The Godfather of Celtic Music Online, Marc Gunn.
When I was a kid, I remember watching football with my dad. I'd lie on the floor mesmerized by the game, but for some reason, I always felt bad for the team that lost. So I started rooting for the underdog.
In the mid-90s, I formed a couple bands and fought hard to earn public awareness through the media to no avail. Eventually, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Soon I learned about the DIY movement and when I started performing with the Brobdingnagian Bards, I was firmly convinced that there was no point in getting a record label.
If I want something done right, I have to do it myself. Thus was born Mage Records.
Mage Records is focused on the little guy. Through a vast network of Celtic music magazines and podcasts, I help independent artists get the attention they so richly deserve.
At present, this is a one-man show. I don't have a lot of time to promote bands. However, now and then I find something quite extraordinary that I believe in. To them, I give the extra helping hand in some of the ways listed below:
I believe artists need to largely take care of themselves. That's why I publish free articles, reports, and books on guerrilla music marketing for musicians.
If you are an independent Irish/Celtic musician, you may have what I'm looking for so. Submit your band to the Celtic MP3s Music Magazine and drop me a line.
