Kent, United Kingdom, December 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- This November a new online music distribution service has launched that allows unsigned musicians to sell music online.
Songstall, built on traditional market practices, allows any unsigned artist to set up their own virtual market stall, or shop page. They can customise their profile and upload their mp3s so when they publicise their stall page, their fans can listen to samples of their songs and buy it online to download the mp3s.
Despite a small number of similar online music services on the internet already, Songstall's distinction is in the control artists have over their stall page. Artists can choose their own unique Songstall address, set their own prices, customise colour schemes, enter text descriptions and lyrics and categorise by genre. There is no limit to how many mp3s they can upload to sell online, and with an image gallery for each artist, album and song, they can add as many pictures as they need.
As unsigned musicians themselves, the creators of Songstall add, "we built Songstall to give unsigned musicians the opportunity to sell mp3s online. These days it is no longer a necessity to sign with a record label, and being so difficult the industry has been crying out for alternatives. Our main intention was to offer our service with no sign-up fee or subscription, as we feel this model exploits many artists who simply can't afford it. With Songstall we only make money when our artists do."
