The Independent Music Network is set to
change the music industry forever, so get ready for the ride!
An artist or band will work hard
and produce a great single or CD, then what? The major record
labels could care less and radio can be a closed shop when
it comes to getting new artists on the radio, especially if
you are an independent. Many major market program directors
can act as judge and jury when it comes to adding new music
and there so many consultants in the mix that you can see
why new acts never get a shot.
It is our goal to help “level
the playing field” by getting the best independent artists,
bands and their product out to the entire music world. We
are amassing a huge list of hundreds of commercial radio stations
to run a syndicated version of the network for both “mainstream”
and Country. There will also be a satellite radio version
of both formats in the coming months.
With the Independent Music Network
we will finally have a new voice in the music industry that
is long overdue.
“If I had something like this
when I was producing and packaging music acts, I would have
been all over it”, said Larry Weir who is now co-editor
of New Music Weekly magazine and runs National Record Promotion.
“It’s so hard to get the
attention of radio on a large scale and this will be a new
and powerful tool”, he added.
Veteran recording artist and producer
Billy Vera is also very excited about the new venture and
he will be featured on radio and television with his “Music
History Class” which will bring an insight of the music
business of the younger generation.
A syndicated version is on the way to over 500 radio stations
in America and throughout the World. There are both Mainstream
and Country versions set for release complete with music from
the best independent artists in the universe along with interviews
and celebrity guests.
Remember when MTV & VH1 played videos? We are taking you
back to that time period with a new slant and look. This time
out you will get fresh and innovative videos from new directors
24/7 along with a new
“Artists Snapshot” every hour. There will be music
specials, “live” studio concerts, and even a music
school we call “Music History Class” hosted by
recording artist and radio historian, Billy Vera.
