LMM PROMOTIONS NETWORK
Shirley Howe aka LA Thompson wanted to create a platform to promote not only her own music but her fellow indie artist bringing all resources available to a one stop environment. 2014 saw The Coromandel Music Hit Disc release and 2015, The Local Musicians Music CD release along with release parties and promotions of the CD to radio both nationally and internationally. Available to any songwriter with no limitations to age or genre. The intention is to increase Kiwi Music’s presence in NZ and Internationally. Promoting artists and businesses directly involved in the music industry. If you are a business or individual wanting to support NZ music you can join The LMM Club as a friend/supporter and enjoy the many discounts and free admission to participating venues throughout NZ.

NATIONWIDE NZ COMMUNITY MUSIC CLUB 2016 – The LMM Club
We are a nationwide network of musicians focused on producing and performing New Zealand composed music. Members both performers and the public alike enjoy free admission to all participating venues. Featured artists book in advance so they can be advertised nationwide. Our point of difference is we cover NZ composed songs by NZ composers and our own originals. Club nights kicked off in Auckland at The Dogs Bollix late 2016. We are now open once a month in Tauranga at Brew Craft Beer Pub,  and Backbeat. Occasionally a club night will be hosted as a one off event in venues throughout NZ. We offer an opportunity to network, be showcased and in some cases secure paid music performances. Benefits to club members include discounted music gear, platters of food at some of our venues and the opportunity to register with our Local Musicians Music network promoting NZ music and musicians Nationwide and Internationally.

MEET SHIRLEY  HOWE FOUNDER OF LOCAL MUSICIANS MUSIC

2012 found Shirley at the cross-roads of her own music journey and her employment in administration, sales and marketing at a stalemate. Having resigned and put all her belongings in storage keeping a little friend by the name of Mason (Dog) her guitar, music equipment and artworks, Shirley reinvented herself using her longstanding brand and music name LA Thompson. Thames offered a sanctuary for a while a place to perform, refocus and so the journey began. 2014 saw the beginnings of LMM with The Coromandel Music Month Hit Disc to be renamed Local Musicians Music expanding nationwide. A word from Shirley “Change is good, we can recreate ourselves or get back to who we have always been at any stage in life. The arts, music, words, sounds, actions, love, kindness and nature are an expression of everything we are! I love the now as you cant see what is around the corner. I hope you come along for the ride and share your music journey with our team”.

Check out our great review in NZ Musician magazine August/September edition.

COROMANDEL MUSIC MONTH HIT DISC 2014 – Volume One
In a small music office in the back-roads of Thames Shirley Howe came up with a “little idea” that she put to Mike Bain from CFM. “So!” Shirley said. “How many interviews can I have in May?”. Mike replied “10”. That was that! Shirley was off making it up as she went. The results speak for themselves!!!
Shirley was fortunate enough to be interviewed on Shane Hales TV show Rockin the Planet with Shane thanks to Gerald from Face Television Sky Channel 083. As a result artists from volume two have secured their interviews for the same show. Producing a 19 track CD of which 9 songs made it to CFM’s playlist during the month of May. Big Valley Radio added all 19 tracks to their playlist and IMP continue to play radio quality tracks submitted on a regular basis. We also produced a promo video from our first live show as a team and went on to enjoy 4 more live shows during NZ Music Month in May of 2014.
