Introducing the #SharePGHMusicMonth 2017 SuperSharer 100 Playlist!

Share Pittsburgh Music Month 2017 is going awesome so far!

At the half-way point of the month, Pittsburgh artists' music videos have gotten over 68,000 new views!

Today, we are stoked to introduce yet another way we hope to build more visibility for Pittsburgh artists.

A team of passionate fans we call the "SuperSharers" have handpicked 100 of their favorite Pittsburgh music videos for our SuperSharer 100 playlist!  It's linked below.

What can you do with the SuperSharer 100?
  • Browse through to discover a song or artist you like
  • Binge watch all five hours of it
  • Use it to organize what videos you'll share in the home stretch of Share Pittsburgh Music Month (and be sure to always include the #SharePGHMusicMonth hashtag in your post).
We hope you enjoy the tunes and get addicted to sharing Pittsburgh music!Here's the link to the playlist:

Share Pittsburgh Music Month Has Begun!

 It's Day #1 of Share Pittsburgh Music Month!

Join in the fun by sharing on social media a music video of a Pittsburgh artist each day in September and using the #SharePGHMusicMonth hashtag.  And track the hashtag - you may just discover your new favorite band!

 We have some "SuperSharers" that we'll be introducing to you later in the month.  These good humans pre-planned the videos they'd share.  This enables us to track the impact that this campaign has on the artists and their videos.
We're working on creating a SuperSharer playlist that you can use to discover some expertly-curated, great new music.  Plus, it will serve as a great source of ideas of videos for you to share!

#SharePGHMusicMonth Returns in September 2017!

Last year, a lot of buzz was generated for Pittsburgh-area musical artists when I suggested the #SharePGHMusicMonth campaign.  This year, Helping Hands Rock Reviews will be playing a greater role in hopefully making #SharePGHMusicMonth bigger and better this September!

Anyone can participate simply by sharing on social media a video of a Pittsburgh band/artist and using the #SharePGHMusicMonth hashtag during the month of September.

But, one of the new things we're trying this year is the concept of the "SuperSharer."

June 2017 Becomes Historic Month for Pittsburgh Music

In recent years, Pittsburgh has become a city with slowly increasing musical credibility.  The city has long been a haven for cover bands and tribute acts.  Still, quality singles, EP's and full-length albums from the area's original artists have typically trickled out here and there.

However, in June 2017, that trickle instantly became a deluge.  No fewer than a half dozen Pittsburgh acts had exciting releases in the month.  We'll recap the most notable here.
