Blogger outreach assignment: ALBUM REVIEW: UK Indie / Soul Pop Singers Debut Album

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the bloggers help with? 

I am releasing my debut album ‘Learn to Wait’ and wish for it and the subsequent single ‘Learn to Wait’ to gain as much exposure as possible through blogging in order to raise my profile as an artist. The single is already gaining interest from BBC Radio 2.

What is the blogging assignment?

I wish for bloggers to review my debut album and possibly interview me. My name is Sam Dickinson and I am a soul singer based in Newcastle, UK, and will also be going on a small UK Tour this summer. I want to gain exposure in order to increase my fan base. The album is currently available for pre order on iTunes and immediately went into the iTunes top 200 on pre orders, higher than Alicia Keys’ pre order for her new record. I have also received support and backing from Gabrielle and Beverley Knight. I am currently receving interest from several producers at BBC Radio 2 for airplay. I have attached the press release below with a download link for the album.

If you wish to interview, feature or review me please feel free to contact me here or at [email protected] if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Sam Dickinson
