Idlemine music

Our buddy Todd over there at Idlemine Music has come back to us for help getting his music licensed a couple of times. We got him 2 non-exclusive licensing deals – One with Yooka and another with Pond 5. The music is instrumental metal (yes, you heard that correctly!).   We also did some social media for Idlemine, getting their local rank on ReverbNation up to #2 !

Armed with a crisp new sound, alternative rock band The Rift drops new EP

If you like bands like Bullet for My Valentine, Alter Bridge, or Story of The Year then you will definitely like The Rift. Armed with a crisp new sound, alternative hard rock band The Rift packs a punch with their self titled EP debut. These melodies will no doubt have you singing along and wanting more.

Although The Rift has only been together for two years, they share great chemistry on stage having made them a quite popular live band.   They have earned a reputation that has allowed them  to share the stage with bands such as: The Misfits, Exodus, Yngwie Malmsteen and Midnight Theory.

When asked, lead singer Aris Anagnos states his personal musical influences are the likes of Led Zeppelin, Metallica, 30 Seconds to Mars and Atreyu. Most of the other band members state their influences are almost identical, making the band very consistent and well suited for the alternative/hard rock music that they play. Other members of the band include Tyler Holsclaw, Matt Melamed, Tesh Hatharasinghe, and John Anagnos.

Visit their website here and check out their new record now available on iTunes .

You can also visit them on Facebook and Myspace for more streaming music and band updates!

THE BEST Digital Distributor new accepting new Artists

As an Indie Artist, I’m sure you know its “buyer beware” when it comes to signing on for Digital Distribution. After “being taken for a ride” by a few others promising the moon, I FINALLY FOUND A DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION DEAL WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD.

http://www.GlobalTraxOnline.com has over 25 years experience distributing artists like Ben E. King, India.Arie, Martha Reeves, Duke Ellington, Sounds of Blackness, Willie Jolley, Joe Lovano and more. We paid just $25 (+ $10/month for 6 months) – totally doable – with 5 band members it was just $5 each up front and $2.00 a month and they distributed our digital CD to nearly 400 TOP digital and mobile stores like iTunes, TeamMobile, Rhapsody, eMusic, Beatport, Ruckus, Verizon Wireless, VirginMobile and more. They provided us a marketing campaign that we as a Band can implement, a barcode to track our royalty payments, and THIS IS SO GREAT – they answer our questions and offer advice on things we need day-to-day; via email on a regular basis – this is invaluable.

Go to http://www.GlobalTraxOnline.com and you can get going right away; then you’ll mail them your CD. Finally, its great to find a distributor that DELIVERS ON THEIR PROMISE! Nothing to loose, everything to gain.
