The Internet Controversy

Music mediums have changed dramatically over the last 40 years, from LP’s to Eight Tracks, Tapes, CDs and now MP3′s. There is a lot of controversy regarding downloaded music. I feel that the internet is a new driving force for music. It used to be that the only way to reach the masses with your music was to sign a record deal and belong to a label, which was great for the few that got that chance and believe me this business is all about chance. Now independent artists, like myself, have an opportunity to reach millions of people with the click of a mouse. Sure people will find ways to get music for free, but that’s always going to happen. There are still faithful fans and music enthusiasts that will pay for great music. So remember when you buy music on line from indie artists, you are supporting the starving artist and not the wealthy record execs. This blog will probably not help me with a record deal, but we’ll see what life throws my way.
