Goldmine Magazine shared an alternate video version of KaiL Baxley’s riveting “Mirrors of Paradise,” off his sophomore LP, A Light That Never Dies. In the alternate version of the video, we see two parallel love stories, one happening in real time and the other in reverse. KaiL told Goldmine, “I was approached by a group of filmmakers here in Los Angeles. The director Orlando Rashid said he’d had a vision while listening to my song and asked if he could make it into a video. I was so honored by the gesture and of course said yes. He and his team did a really nice job and I thought they put a great spin on the video. It’s wild how one thing can inspire another and something completely brand new and different is born. That’s the beauty of art.”

ReverbNation CONNECT artist manager (and former booking agent with The Windish Agency) Sharyn Goldyn has already shared her essential tips for how emerging artists can make the most out of their first tours. Today she answers the big question, should a new band go to SXSW?
Should a new band go to SXSW?
There’s a lot to think about before you decide. The amount of bands that go each year is insane. The venues are hit or miss, shows are rushed and the sound can be compromised. Almost no shows are paid unless you’re a big name and there’s a big sponsor, so you’re going to lose money right out of the gate. BUT if you have a new release with anticipation around it, money to pay for it, and an agent or someone else helping you get on the right shows, it can be very worth it. Having at least one really good look like a Fader Fort or Spotify House can push the needle for a new artist.
