  1. Hi there my name is Harrison Songolo, I am a member of a local Providence Rhode Island band known as The Novi Giants. We recently released our first Acoustic album “Brave”. We are working on breaking into the music industry and breaking into the Indie Music scene with our new album and our style of music, (Indie Soul Rock). I was wondering if there was anyway that you could help us get our music out there and what are the directions that we would need to follow up to make that happen? Please help us reach out to many people with our music. We want to spread love joy and good vibes to everyone that listens to The Novi Giants.
