“Michael and 8D Industries have been absolutely essential in the launch and management of the online promotion for my book, TONI TENNILLE: A MEMOIR. Michael has also been a great help in areas such as music publishing, project planning, and the technical aspects of recording the audiobook version. His ideas are fresh and forward-looking and his advice has been invaluable to me. I cannot recommend 8D Industries highly enough!”
— Toni Tennille (Captain & Tennille)
“Michael Donaldson has been our go-to-person in the marketing, promotions, and management services for our music label, Hardkiss Music. We have built a long-standing relationship and I have enjoyed turning to him for direction and insight. He is equally knowledgeable about the US and foreign markets, and I can always trust his judgment, commitment, and follow-through on projects that we work on together.”
— Gavin Hardkiss (Hardkiss Music)
"Michael’s understanding of how this business works beneath the surface is both invaluable and uncommon. He’s more than one step ahead of the industry landscape on multiple levels which helps with my decision making process. Our dialogue always leads to forward thinking solutions."
– DJ Three (Hallucienda)
"We’ve been working with Michael for over seven years now. He’s coordinated dozens of promotion campaigns for Cold Busted, and always puts a lot of thought into the execution of any project. Rather than casting too wide of a net, Michael researches and makes sure the promotions are tightly targeted so we’re only hitting potential fans and supporters of our releases. Michael’s knowledge and expertise in this field, as well as other industry topics, continue to make him a great fit for our label."
— Derrick Daisey (Cold Busted / DJ Vitamin D)
“Michael has been a huge help with the rollout and release of my latest album, Shady Lights. Being independent, it’s important for me to build a trustworthy team that deals with strategy, timelines, and social media, or to simply be a springboard for ideas. Michael and 8D industries do all of those things. Highly recommended!”
— Snax (Random Records)
“I’ve worked with Michael since the start of my record label and he’s been an invaluable resource. Michael is extremely helpful and knowledgable about the ins-and-outs of this ever-changing music industry.”
— Frank Cueto (All Good Funk Alliance / Super Hi-Fi Recordings)
“Michael provided excellent advice and analysis regarding The Content Label’s online assets, delivering multiple actionable recommendations. We also used 8D Industries to audit and overhaul our standard artist contracts and I’m now confident that our agreements are airtight, with all bases covered. This agency’s work is timely and valuable.”
