giving band and musicians the ability to sell their CD & MP3s at
our store, HitMusic also wants to help band and musicians with their
production costs," notes HitMusic founder Paul Shirley. "Considering
the bite studio time & costs can take out of an artist budget, we
felt that this giveaway could help."
did you form HitMusic?
a producer, I had artists asking me how to get their music out there.
In looking at ways other artists were selling their music, I realized
that they were primarily selling their music over the internet through
online music distributors. I liked what these companies were doing,
but found that they were not giving much value for the bands and
artists1 money. These companies were keeping most of the money and
leaving the artists with too little. So I started Hit Music not
just to help them keep their fair share, but to help them get their
so many online stores appearing every day, what make HitMusic different?
know that there are a lots of company out there. What makes HitMusic
different is not just that we want to provide a complete package.
We can for example help a band produce their DVD. We plan to showcase
music videos on the Hit Music site, as well as webcast their music
through an internet radio station. We are also planning a tour next
year to promote with the best of the best bands and artists that
are on Hit Music.
partnership with our sister company MediaEvolutions,
Hit Music will provide bands and artists with the tools to attract
the attention of labels. It all boils down to being a leader in
our getting their music out to their fans and the industry."
many artists have you signed up and which are the most notable?
Music is just now starting out. At this time, we have about ten
on our site and about 30 more that have signed up. But we feel with
all the good service we1re offering, it is just a matter of time
before we have many more. The most notable are Jezreel, Delirious,
Sol Season, Eotribe just to name a few."
role will giveaways have in the future in building the site?
Music will always have giveaways for artist and band. We feel that
these initiatives will help them with some of their important costs
while helping them keep their fans. We know that fans are hard to
come by and we want to help the band build loyalty and keep that
buying their music. For the average band that can sell their music
at any online company, it's a great way for us to thank you them
for joining our family.
do you expect the online music retail business to be in the next
see digital downloads as leading online sales that will continue
to grow. They will let bands and artists make more sales while keeping
their cost down but let there fan get there music know. Hit Music
plans on being the leader on how on line music is sold. Yes, there
are a growing number of bigger companies out there offering similar
services, but they are not giving fan and bands value for their
dollars and we will. With each band that signs up and each fan visit,
we get closer to our goals as we grow with the band.
