What recording artists do the BEST job of communicating with their fans?
Upcoming projects, etc
Steven Wilson comes to mind
He's always active, listening to the fans and giving what the fans want
For product and concert announcements:
The Pretty Things
The Four Bitchin' Babes
For personal interaction with fans:
Jon Povey and Wally Waller of The Pretty Things
Sonja Kristina and Francis Monkman of Curved Air
Annie Haslam of Renaissance
Richard Sinclair of Caravan
Andy Latimer of Camel
Dave Greenslade of Greenslade and Colosseum
and the late, great John Entwistle
Bob Dylan...just kidding.
Scott Terry and Red Wanting Blue...amazing in person...very friendly and personable...
Ben Folds did a great job of micro-marketing, particularly when he split off as a solo artist. He had an existing database of fans of the trio with the smart-assed piano player, and, as his music stretched to embrace more mature themes and styles, his fans were in the midst of maturing post-collegiate 'tude as well. Perfect storm, perfect match of nest-marketing and emulation.
Foster The People
Big Head Todd & The Monsters come to mind.
