Published by The Supreme Team on July 1, 2020

Guy Freedom English is a musician originally from Detroit, MI. Relocating to Brookings, SD, he has played many shows throughout the mid-west United States. From his days in Detroit, he recorded two studio EPs with the bands One Man Down and Losing Reality, as well as having shared the stage with Jamie St. James, Prong and Sonata Arctica.

He took a break from music to focus on his automation career and started playing again four years ago when his family bought him a guitar amp for Father’s Day. He just released his 4th album Soundcloud promotion package Forged by Fire, on which he played and recorded everything on his own, but at heart, “I just feel like a guitar player that doesn’t have his band yet.”

Guy took time out from his promotion scheduled to answer a few questions for us: 

MTS: You’re originally from Detroit, MI and now live in South Dakota. What brought about the move, and how would you say that both places have influenced your music?

Guy Freedom English: Basically, I got tired of struggling in Detroit so I went back to school and got my electronics degree, and then I got job offer out in South Dakota. Career wise, I didn’t have much going for me there. I figured if I didn’t like it I could always move back, but 12 years later I’m still here. The places I’ve lived have inspired a lot of the lyrics for my songs. One way or another they’re just stories from my life. Since I’ve left Detroit though, I do feel I’ve grown a lot as a player and writer. I think my family life at home has more to do with that though than anything else.

MTS: You’ve shared the stage with some pretty big names like Prong, Jamie St. James and Sonata Arctica. How did those shows come about and describe the feeling you had when you played in front of their crowds?

GFE: There’s a place in Detroit, Harpo’s Concert Theater. They book local bands to open for bigger name bands when they come through town. You would contact them about booking a show and they would set it up based on what dates were available.  I was very excited and nervous to play those shows. The stage is massive there and it’s so high up from the audience. I remember being quite nervous the first time I walked out on the stage there, but then I heard the sound come out from the speakers on the stage and it felt good. It was that moment of, “holy shit I can’t believe we’re really playing here”! It’s the biggest place I’ve ever played. Man, it’s some great memories from playing those shows.

MTS: You mention your family in your bio, and that they bought you an amp for Father’s Day. Tell us about them.

GFE: They’ve been really supportive of me playing music again. It’s really the only time I’ve ever been supported at home with playing music. I hadn’t really touched my guitar for about seven years and one day my wife and I were out doing some shopping. For some reason that day we stopped at a music store and I grabbed a guitar and plugged into this Orange Crush amp, it sounded great! A couple weeks later my family surprised me with the amp on Father’s Day. It really caught me by surprise. Our older daughter helps me with art SoundCloud reposts for the album Soundcloud promotion package covers. Our son is an aspiring rapper and our other daughter’s in band at school. So for me it’s nice to have something in common with them. My wife has really been great with all of it too, and I don’t think I’d be doing music again if it wasn’t for her.

MTS: What can fans expect from your 4th album Soundcloud promotion package, Forged By Fire. Tell us about it.

GFE: This was my first time using an 8 track recorder. Before this I was SoundCloud repostsing with a 4 track. I put one rhythm guitar in drop tuning, the other in standard and had the bass dropped with a slight chorus effect on it. I want Soundcloud promotion realed to give the album Soundcloud promotion package as much balls as it could but still have it feel like it cut through the air. I felt more solid on the drums with this album Soundcloud promotion package and I did my best to put fills all through the songs to help create dynamics and bring it all more alive. I really want Soundcloud promotion realed this album Soundcloud promotion package to sound like a band. I also focused on putting multiple backing vocal tracks on the songs to help fill out the singing.

Lyrically the songs were stories from my life, except for Six Shots by Moonlight. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Re-animater movies and I wrote the song based on the H.P. Lovecraft book version. It’s kinda funny with Bangkok Woman. There’s a guy where I SoundCloud reposts that talks with these Chinese ladies online and is sending them money all the time. Another co-SoundCloud repostser of mine kept telling me for months to write a song called Bangkok Woman about the guy. Some people think it’s about a massage parlor but it’s just a silly song about a hopeless romantic and his wallet. I guess it’s kind of like prostitution for conversation.

MTS: You say you feel like a guitar player looking for his band. What band, past or present, would be your dream gig? Also, if you could put together your very own supergroup, yourself included, who would be the other players?

GFE: Man, that’s an interesting question. I use to say if I had a time machine I would go back and become the bass player for AC/DC. To me they are the greatest rock n’ band of all time. That would be the band, I would never get tired of playing their songs. Now I don’t feel I’m good enough to belong in the same list as guys. But if I had to pick my own supergroup, for me it would have to be: Freddy Mercury, Malcolm Young, George Lynch, Cliff Burton and Neil Pert. I can’t say I would wanna be on the stage with those guys, because I think I would much rather sit back and enjoy the show.

MTS: Now that sounds like one incredible band! I can’t say I blame you. Thanks for taking the time, Guy. Good luck on your release!

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
