ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wendy Vickers is considered a "fan's fan". Over her four decades of being a fan of someone or another, she's made dozens of friendships with fans all over the world. Wendy also earned the respect of both famous and up and coming local musicians with her solid, positive support and encouragement for their work.

Now Wendy shares her tips and secrets of successful fandom on her latest CD audiobook "Treasures In the Tip Jar: The Art of Awesome Fan Support." Wendy reveals the key to getting noticed by artists for the right reasons...giving fan support in the most meaningful and positive ways. "The message here is how to support the work first and foremost...and bring blessings to the artists and benefits to yourself that you may never have thought possible," she says.

"Treasures In the Tip Jar" covers ways to offer direct support, what to do and what not to do when meeting an artist, how to write a fabulous fan letter, how being a fan helps you discover new insights about yourself, the benefits of community with other fans, and how to cope if things change and it all stops being fun. Wendy also has a few suggestions for artists on how to build-and keep-a loyal fan base.

Wendy's website at www.wendyv.com offers support and resources for both artists and fans, promotional tips and hints for fans on how to get radio airplay for their favorite artists. Wendy's other web venture is Embrace Encouragement (www.embraceencouragement.com), where she encourages and inspires musicians and artists who want to take their gifts to higher levels and new audiences by being their "biggest fan". Her regular newsletter "Wendy V's Encouraging Words", focuses on ways to embrace encouragement in all forms.

Now based in Nashville, Wendy carries on the tradition of musician support with her newest blog, Wendy V's Nashville Blend (wvnashblend.blogspot.com), spotlighting events she attends in Nashville, focusing on singers, songwriters and musicians who deserve some attention. Wendy also supports musicians on her Radio Free Nashville radio show (www.radiofreenashvile.org).

Must have if you want to be an savvy fan!
This is a awesome CD packed with practical insider information on how to be an encouraging fan to your favorite musical artists! It is organized, insightful, candid, and very well narrated by Ms. Vickers herself! In it, you will find out what not to do when meeting an artist, or communicating with them by mail or e-mail...or in person! And she'll give you helpful ideas to encourage and uplift musical artists who labor in a brutal business!

Cozy, comfy, informative listening!
Wendy Vickers is a true fan of music, like almost all of us. This CD contains various roadmap ideas and concepts, all delivered in Wendy's gentle and soothing voice. She has a true passion for music and the artists who make music, and she does a great job sharing this passion with us! Lots of great topics to think about. Made me re-think how I viewed some artists.
