A memoir about growing up in Washington, DC, and the making of dreams in the music industry, “The Great Record Promoter” is about how the singers and stars everyone knows and loves today got made, focusing on the music scene beginning in the 1970s.

Fresh, Curtis Mayfield, Smokey Robinson, Bobby Womack, Jonnie Taylor, Jazzy Jeff, and Fresh Prince, EPMD, Vanilla Ice, among a magnitude of others.

“Linda Wills did an excellent job writing this book. It’s truly about life, having goals, and a mission. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I would use it as a reference from time to time as I continue to live my life,” says a reader review.

“The Great Record Promoter,” tells the untold story of record promotions and how new artists are established for success, all through the eyes of a leading record promoter. The ultimate message of the book is to encourage artists to deploy the art of record promotions to expose their music in the marketplace, in addition to using social media. The book will be of great interest to all music buffs, urban residents, songwriters, record producers, academic and non-academic people, and anyone who wants to understand how the music industry works.
