Death to the Record Labels
November 09, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsWebsite Boost Independent Music (www.boostindependentmusic.com ) launched today, staking a bold claim to become the World’s Number One online music store selling songs by independent and unsigned artists.
“We’ve just seen Radiohead shake the music industry by selling their latest album online and cutting out the middleman” said Graeme Logan, CEO of Boost Independent Music. “The greatest thing about the Internet is that everybody is their own distributor, Boost Independent Music is just providing a convenient platform. Being your own distributor is power and the thing that labels once held over artists - well not anymore”.
Boost is dedicated to bringing to its audience fresh and original music from around the world, across all genres and demographics. On the site artists and bands create their own profile page where they can upload new music immediately and monitor their music sales easily.
The original Boost Independent Music site launched two years ago by streaming a continuous professionally produced program of Indie music.
However times and trends are rapidly changing. Now listeners want to select the music THEY want hear and WHEN.
So now Boost has re-launched featuring a whole new look and platform. Independent music lovers can browse, listen and download quickly the music they like, all for lower than commercial prices.
“At this early stage of the game we are looking for more content, basically we want as many bands and artists to come to the site and upload their music”, said Logan. “We offer a 50/50 profit split with no hidden charges, and everyone who signs up now gets a free credit to download a song so they can check out how good the quality of music is that we are attracting”
Music lovers who come to the Boost site are supporting the independent community, and maybe helping to uncover the next big thing – proving that recording artists no longer need to be signed up to a major record label to ensure their success.
Statistics show that traditional format music sales are declining with the phenomenal growth of digital music sales. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) predicts that digital sales could account for a quarter of all sales worldwide by 2010.
