Skope Donations: http://asso.in/url/36k

Skope’s mission is to create a profitable, socially-networked, highly interactive, multi-media community for music enthusiasts, artists and bands. Our aim is to create robust and vibrant music community networks across genres and geographical boundaries. Skope connects fans and music enthusiasts around the world with mainstream and emerging “long-tail” artists and bands.


“We started advertising with Skope in the Jan/Feb 2007 issue. Since then I have been very pleased with the traffic that has been generated to our website since the AD ran. “

Jon Myers — The Jon Myers Band

“When we started NS Friedman Design we wanted to reach a diverse & trendy audience to sell our fine jewelry lines. Skope offers our company that exposure and we have been advertising since.”

Neil Friedman — CEO — NS Friedman Jewelry Design

“We at Riffin’ found the advertising experience with Skope to be great. It gave us some great publicity both in print and online, and we received positive feedback from both distribution channels.”

Louis Monopoulis – Riffin.com

“Skope Magazine is one of very few media outlets that actually provides results. I have used them to market and advertise my agency, Rainmaker Public Relations for over a year and have made my money back ten fold. I continue using them and their effectiveness never ceases. Its a slam dunk!”

Rhonda Brilliant – The Rainmaker Media Group

“Advertising in Skope Magazine has been a rewarding and uplifting. Although we are an up and coming band we were able to purchase high profile professional ad space in one of rock’s premiere magazines. The copy was perfect. The hits to our website have DOUBLED since we began advertising in Skope. If we’re not rock stars yet we are one step closer after advertising in Skope.”

David Alyassin — Racecar

“Advertising with Skope Magazine has been amazing. The people that run this publication really actually care about the music, and more specifically, the underground, eclectic, under-rated and ever-changing music scene. I will no doubt keep rocking with these guys and can’t wait to see how far they take it!”

Phil DaRosa – Tight Records

“Skope has been instrumental in the success that we’ve had over the last year and we’re very happy to be part of such a dynamic and exciting publication. We’ve advertised with larger publications in the past but we haven’t always received the high level of service and commitment that Skope gives to it’s advertisers and independent musicians, which is why it makes this a good fit for what what we’re trying to accomplish with our marketing strategy.”

Darian Worrell – VOD Recordings

“I’ve put in a couple requests in on my end to start getting you guys some love from our ad department as I love the mag (you know that) and it’s been growing so much lately, looks more and more amazing each time I see it!”

Fernando Aguilar – Warner Bros. Records — Publicity Director

“I just discovered Skope recently in my favorite magazine store and I am quite impressed. Almost 90 pages of features–wow! I am a singer/songwriter and a committee member with the Pacific Music Industry Association (Music BC) in Vancouver, and it is fantastic to see all these independent acts getting some coverage in an international publication.”

Natasha Jay, B.A.

Skope: Why do you feel that Skope Magazine is having such a positive impact on the publishing & music industry?

Tim: While it’s getting easier and cheaper for artists to make music and get it out there, it’s getting harder and more expensive for them to get radio play and mass exposure. A magazine like Skope that helps put the spotlight on new and innovative artists is great for everybody because it helps fans connect with new artists and it helps keep a fresh mix of music out there. That’s really important, because things can get stale when there are only a handful of artists breaking through.

Tim Sheff — EMI Recording Artist

Skope: Why do you think that so many people are enjoying Skope Magazine online & in print?

Quincy: Skope really gives attention to both mainstream and indie artists. Skope is great because not only can you get the latest info on your favorite artists, you are also introduced to new and upcoming ones. They have a great variety of all the best music.

Quincy Coleman — Quincycoleman.com

“The mags arrived today and look amazing! I have not put it down since I opened the box. And I LOVE the placement of my ad. Thank you so much, Mike. It’s in an AWESOME location. I am thrilled. Thanks again – and cheers for a great two months of magazine sales and more ads being booked too!”

Eugene Foley Phd — Foley Entertainment

“I love your publication, and would shoot for you at no cost if given the opportunity! I’m working on building a portfolio and could really use the experience. Thanks so much for your time, I look forward to your reply!”

Kristin Stubblefield – Photographer

“I live in New York and I always love your mag. I have stumbled upon a songwriter who totally rocks and has a great sound and wanted to share that with you at Skope because I know you’re always on the lookout for new and original artists. Check out his www.myspace.com/stevenortheast to hear his music.”

Sophie Jones — Reader

Stoli: What is it about Skope that made you want us to feature you?

KR: Skope features all types of national and international music from indie to major artists. I love diversity and Skope represents that.

Khalid Rivera — Broadway Performer & Solo Artist

“I have been a subscriber to Skope for 2 years now. I actually get excited when a new issue arrives because it has all the info I need on the music scene as a whole and not just one genre!”

Krista Murphy — Reader

“You’re magazine rocks!!!!”

Drowned Youth – myspace.com/drownedyouthrocks

“Esthema is extremely happy and excited with the review and ad in Skope Magazine this month. (Mar/Apr 08)”

Andy Milas — ESTHEMA – Esthema.com

“Chris here from Girlie. I just wanted to offer you a pair of tickets to the They Might Be Giants show at the Somerville Theatre on 3/28 as sort of a thank you for that great feature you guys did on them. I was just looking at it again, it rules. Anyway, let me know, and talk soon.”

Chris – Girlie.com

“I really love Skope Magazine. Just wanted to reach out and share my music with you guys. Hope to do something with you in the future.”

Tamar – myspace.com/tamarmusic

“Holy Shit man, it’s pretty awesome that your magazine is doing so well, usually mags (I’m sure you know) go under within the first year, but I see you guys here in NY on the stands. Good fucking job man.”

Zach – The December Sound

Thanks, you are doing a great job! The response to the AD is incredible! I hope there will be many more to come. I even heard from artists featured on Billboard Magazine who are starved for airplay. Keep them coming! By the way the last two days have resulted in a solid listenership almost all day long. I hope to see that listenership level continue to grow. You might just help me make this the most popular Smooth Jazz/New Age radio station on the Internet yet. Much Thanks!

Jason Weeks – Airomee Wind – Que 98.2 FM

Stoli: My boss told me that you will be advertising the new album in Skope Magazine. As a marketing person what drew you to Skope?

Kelly: Yes, and I’m very excited about it. For my first album, I hired a small PR firm to help out with getting the word out and as they let me know which outlets they were pursuing, I would then check up on each outlet and see what the fit was and how the publication handled itself. With SKOPE, I was impressed with not only the look and feel of the magazine, but the interviews and reviews and the whole vibe overall. It’s a magazine I read myself and an outlet that I want to be associated with. Ultimately, it’s a magazine that puts indie and major all under one roof and treats them exactly the same. Not too many other magazines out there are going to do that and that’s what makes SKOPE stand out.

Kelly Greene – Musician & MKTG Coord. Pepsi

“What I love about Skope Magazine is it’s chameleon like existence. It brings all facets of the music industry together in one outstanding, complete issue every month & online.

Since Shakir Entertainment has been doing business with Skope, being involved with such a trend-setting media magazine has done phenomenal things for my clientele as a music manger. And I have to say just knowing someone like Mr. Mike Friedman in this business, is truly an honor for me.”

Shaun Cairo – Shakir Entertainment,Inc

I just wanted to share a favorite band of mine called Livintrust. They’re a band I saw three years ago play with for 30 Seconds to Mars, Hinder, Seether and Audioslave. Since then, I have seen them play over 100 times and hear them on the radio.

“Hey Michael,

I wrote for Skope… maybe a year ago (give or take some months). I manage a group called The Cranberry Show and we’re working on the single “Grind It Out”… take a listen and give me your honest, personal opinion.

You’re one of the people whose opinion I value (and magazine I still love)… so I’m looking for your views as someone in the industry.

Thanks Michael”

Kennita Hickman

“Hey Michael,

Have been a fan of Skope Mag for a minute and wanted to take a second to introduce you to an artist I represent who might catch your ear.

Colin Munroe caught some buzz earlier this year with his unofficial remix of Kanye’s “Flashing Lights”. The track became something of an internet sensation and landed him a deal over @ Universal Motown. Colin’s sorta odd in the sense that he writes and produces all of his own music — including playing EVERY instrument. He’s also hard to pin down, equally comfortable producing hip hop as he is his own brand of alt-pop.”

Andrew Kennedy – www.markedmusic.com

“Thank you for your great review of Selah! We really appreciate your words and advice. It’s exciting to see the band on a site I’ve visited many times! Skope is a great resource for music. I’m a big fan of Snob Doodle and specifically his rant on country music from awhile back.”

George Roskos – West Gate

“Thanks for considering me Mike, I love what you do for bands and how you help spread the word, I do believe these are exciting times ahead for music, back to basics is happening and it is awesome!!! Much success to you and to SKOPE.”

Ed Wagner – www.mongrelmix.com

“Dear Michael: Thank you for providing a great, cost effective service with your Skope e mail press release blasts. Recently, I submitted a press release for the band Ready In 10. The press release not only went out to thousands of Skope subscribers/potential new fans, but the blast also went to the industry. The band and I were pleasantly surprised when we saw the press release hit several major music blogs and newsletters. I was very impressed when I received an e mail from a UK promoter interested in interviewing the band and reviewing Ready In 10’s new CD 31 Strong in his newsletter.

With so many hustlers out there taking money from artists and providing no service, your e mail press release blasts are a great asset to artists, managers, labels and PR pros with clients in the music industry. I will continue to use your blast press release service as I have newsworthy information about all of my bands. Keep up the good work. Very truly yours!”

The means by which he promotes music, is evident in the extensive and diverse network of contacts he has built up in the music industry, and the internet platform he devised to facilitate these contacts. His expertise is further evident in how communicates with and connects musicians to the most advantageous opps.. The reviews Skope posts are substantive, positive, and well written. Over all my experience with Mike Friedman, and Skope has been very positive. It provided me with one critical tool, a means to promote my songs, in a music industry where this can be a challenge even for the most seasoned professionals.”

I truly feel that the additional promotion you’ve assisted me with has been instrumental in the continued growth and awareness of myself as a serious Artist in the music industry! Thank you so much!”

“Hi Mike, You don’t have to respond to this. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all your work, particularly the endless hours you must spend networking. I have been writing songs and singing them since the age of 11 or 12, but being a full time pastor and part time college instructor left me little time to do more than perform my music in various local Christian venues. Without a platform like yours music like mine might never have reached a larger audience. The social networking opportunities you afford deliver, and are a cutting edge form of publicity that levels the playing field for independent artists. Among all the platforms out there yours has, by far, been the most consistently helpful and encouraging.”
