I got an update email from an artist who mentioned that her songs are on a new website called IndiEclectic. The dealio is this: pay $20 and they’ll give you 2,000 songs from over 200 artists. It’s basically every song on their site. Sounded interesting. So I checked it out.
Here’s their mission:
IndiEclectic.com is a community of like-minded musicians and artists who have come together to share their music in an environment unencumbered by mainstream music distributors.
The way it’s set up is that it’s mostly unknown artists (though seeing as I do what I do, I’d heard of many of them). But the way to find them is to browse the site looking for artists you DO know and appreciate and they (the artists, not the website) then recommend artists you may like, or ones they personally like. For example, I went to Alanis Morrissette. She recommended Veda Hille (who is fantastic, by the way) just browsing around from there I found a woman called Audra Mae. I listened to one of her songs and I really liked it. So hey, new discovery, Audra Mae. Voila!
It’s pretty cool. I get nothing from talking about it, and I have not signed up for it yet myself. * But I thought perhaps you would appreciate it.
*I have too many other songs I have to listen to that I rarely get time to listen to anything I choose, plus I already get 50 downloads from Emusic every month, so I simply don’t have time to listen to that much. Yes, it’s a good problem to have, trust me, I am not complaining.
