The Tift Merritt Screaming TEAM is Tift's street team--her international posse of volunteers who work together with each other and with everybody in the TM camp (including Tift of course) to promote Tift's music, both recorded and live. The TEAM is independent of Tift's record label, though the label does support our promotion efforts. We play a significant role in advance-promoting shows in our hometown areas, which helps to increase ticket sales and awareness. We also promote new releases by putting up posters, putting out handbills, checking out record stores and other retailers, and helping make sure that headquarters knows about all the local media outlets they need to contact for promotion. Being on the TEAM isn't a job, but it is a commitment for those who are willing to get out and do some real work for The Cause. If you're interested in more information, please contact TEAM head Phillip Reid directly here.
TEAMers can communicate directly here at tiftmerritt.net by using the dedicated TEAM Insiders Forum. This is also a way we can share touring quality-of-life tips with the band such as nearby healthy places to eat, good places to stay, etc.
