actly what we did . We love the crew at The Syndicate and they have done an excellent job of pitching our music to radio stations . Thanks to them , we ended up reaching No . 17 in the college radio charts , and we have seen a growth in our audiences in college towns and cities ever since . We are continuing to work with them on ‘ What Could Be Better ,’ and they have already done a great job of getting our singles played on college stations and a few Sirius XM stations !
How can you afford to work with The Syndicate ? Ross : We are very grateful for them because they were very understanding about our position and were willing to work out a lower budget with us since we are an independent band . I ’ m sure their relationship with Ayad over the years has helped with that too . This year , thanks to a growth in our streams and thanks to our fan donations , we were able to afford a slightly larger budget and a few more perks with them . I ’ m sure they are still keeping it low though because they are too nice .
What is the name of Ayad ’ s management company ? And comment on the amazing job the team is doing . Ross : Diamond City Management ! Ayad was the one who recorded both ‘ Concentrate ’ and ‘ What Could Be Better .’ He started managing us shortly after we finished recording our first album . The Syndicate does all of our radio campaigns and , yes , they do an amazing job . We directly work with Jordan Howard , who works on college radio for us and always kills it . We always see her and Jerry when we play in NYC , and we love seeing them . The whole company is a close-knit group of dedicated workers , and we couldn ’ t be happier to work with them .
