[tweetmeme source= 'klcreative' only_single=false]Got some great recordings that you would like heard on Internet radio and/or available to potential industry buyers but feel confused about choosing an online outlet or cheated when paid submissions to current A&R services feel like they fall in a black hole? Hello Music is a new music service that promises to cut through the red tape of other services without any up-front fees, and their recent partnership with Slacker may help streamline the time from submission to hitting the internet airwaves.
Artists simply go on the Hello Music website, submit content and once reviewed, it not only becomes part of the Hello Music program for generating placement opportunities, but Slacker automatically creates a personalized station for the artist. Hello Music doesn’t make a dime until the artist’s music begins earning revenue from the placement opportunities they land.
Slacker’s reasoning for granting Hello Music artists almost immediate access to airplay is that with the barriers to entry that many independent artists encounter on other services removed, the social and fan interactions that can help break an act will create a truly listener-driven station. More choices, more freedom, more access. For independent artists trying to navigate the complicated world of A&R, it sounds like a winning combination.
