distro is a go
If you asked me in 2005 whether I thought distributing music digitally was a good idea as an independent artist, I would have said no. Pun intended, my tune has changed on that.
I've actually had ways of doing distro for a while, but I couldn't use it because I didn't have songs ready. Well, I finally completed 5 songs. After that I started getting the wheels rolling officially with digital distro and soon enough my tunes will be available for download on iTunes, Last.fm, Amazon, Spotify, etc. It will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks before the whole process is completed.
The total cost to do the distro proper was 59 bucks, the majority of which went into licensing rights, getting a bar code, etc. Worth it? Absolutely. In the way I did it, all the major distro sites are covered which is convenient both for me and those looking for my music, because fans can pick their preferred digital destination of choice. That's a win-win situation as far as I'm concerned.
As soon as I'm "live", so to speak, I'll make an announcement here.
