Los Angeles, CA, April 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The brains behind the exciting artist-centered site, BlastMyMusic.com, have developed a new tool to assist artists and fans who use multiple music sites on the web. The "MusicBlaster Lite" now functions as a link from other artist-centered sites, such as Purevolume and Virb. Once the consumer clicks on the “MusicBlaster Lite” application, they are taken directly from the alternative site to their chosen artists’ store at BlastMyMusic.com. Instantly, fans and fellow rockers will be able to purchase music easier than any other similar location on the web. BlastMyMusic now allows for direct credit card payment in addition to Paypal, which was the only previously offered transaction mode.
BlastMyMusic.com is the ultimate tool of empowerment for the recording artist; a way to eliminate the middle man and put the control of sales and distribution where they belong—in the hands of the artists themselves. BlastMyMusic.com’s 25-year-old founder, Chris Fellure, launched the site in October of 2006 and has already signed artists representing more than 75 different genres, from Ambient to Zydeco. Promoter and manager, Fellure states, “We’re enabling artists to sell music directly from their websites and fans can buy directly from their favorite artists.”
Teaming up with other artist-centered sites such as Purevolume and Virb allows BlastMyMusic.com to continue offering the most beneficial and cost-rewarding promotion option for indie-bands and artists on the web. Always innovative, BlastMyMusic.com has set the pace again for keeping the artists’ needs to the forefront of their business model. “Our focus from the beginning has been to enable artists to sell their music to the largest audience possible, the MusicBlaster Lite brings us a few steps closer to that goal,” says Fellure.
This site is absolutely free to all customers and there is no charge for artists to join. To use BlastMyMusic’s extraordinarily simple process, artists need only to log on, create a profile, and upload their music, placing the unique MusicBlaster player on their site. Digital downloads sell for only 99 cents a piece, with two-thirds of each sale generated going straight to the artist, immediately after a 30-day fund verification process. The customized MusicBlaster player offers consumers the opportunity to stream 30 seconds of a song and the option to purchase the individual track in the unprotected MP3 form, which means they can play on any brand digital player. Artists themselves can access their accounts in real time to see how many total tracks they’ve sold, the most popular downloads and the geographic location of those sales, helping to formulate their marketing and promotional plans.
