    Independent Music Release
    By Billy Rock

    In the music industry, although it is a common practice to release albums under record labels, the practice of independent music release has been gaining popularity as well. Independent music is famously known as indie music and refers to music that is independently produced from record labels. In other words, the marketability of such music relies on the influence of the artist only since this type of music release is free from any commercial label influence.

    It has become a struggle for independent labels to get established in the market. For so long a time, large music companies and record labels dominated the market. With this reality, producers of independent music consider an indie release as an outlet for exceptional artists and the artists that they favor only, with no business venture expectations at all. Perhaps the most successful music genre for such music release is punk rock. A lot of indie music made it to this genre since the early 80's. Since then, the road has been paved for indie artists.

    Today, independent music release has become easier and more convenient with the internet. Aside from the fact that releasing indie music in the internet saves up on cost, the internet also reaches a huge amount of audience and client. The current digital format of music files have contributed to the encouragement of discovering new music. In fact, there are already plenty of music record companies that are exceeding commercial record labels in sales. One of the largest of these independent releases is the No limit, which has sold over 75 million records in the US alone.

    Due to the success of independent music release in the internet, this has been used to fund new recording projects using the services that are also provided in the internet such as ArtistShare and other sites. As proof to internet music release success, the album, 'California Years' by Jill Sobule raised $90,000 online. This is surely an unbelievable success considering the fact that the album is independently released.

    Moreover, for online independent music releases, the audience and the clients get a good deal also since these albums are relatively cheaper when downloaded in the internet than bought at the record stores. Furthermore, the web sites that host independent music provide audience participation that solicits for the opinion of the audience on some artists and bands. In this way, the audience plays a role in the success of artists and musicians. In addition, other music sites use technological advances including music blogs and social networks to promote independent releases. There are certainly a number of websites that offer music downloads, updates, independent releases, and even music uploading. Therefore, with the internet technology, independent music release has become more mobile and dynamic.

    A Message from the founder of EvO:R
    The Independent Music world has become so fragmented that anyone entering into this arena will be lost without having a chance of survival. What every independent musicians needs is information, understanding and a path that leads to success. Sure, you can buy a few books from authors that never played a note or loaded a single amp into a moving van. Pipe dreams are all over the Internet.

    At EvO:R we pride ourselves with sections dedicated to Independent Music News called (The EvO:R Street Journal), Musicians Success Stories and Tips called (EvO:R-pedia) and a Musicians Testimonial Section called (The Goods) dedicated to Internet based companies that deliver on their promises.

    All this news and information and we don't charge a single penny. We also respect your online privacy by refusing to track your browsing habits while on our website. We simply want to deliver the BEST news, information and success stories for the Independent Musician.

    Thank-you for visiting EvO:R and tell the world that we are out here..
