What do Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Charles Manson all have in common?They have all sensed the direction music is headed in. They have embraced free distribution of their hard work (and we're not referring to murder).
They have each released numerous songs for free. Zilch. Nada.
VolumeVote is helping dozens of artists and labels do the same.
Why? VolumeVote visitors tend to be music lovers. Following the actions of Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, bands are increasingly noticing something candy shops realized years ago: Free samples result in more sales.
More fans = more merchandise and concert tickets sold = More money
And who's going to complain? Music lovers love discovering new music. It's not as if we're all cheap thieves that like to steal Metallica tracks. We want to go to good concerts. Heck, we don't even mind paying for an album with solid musical content.
It's that old adage, you win more fans with free music than you do with lawsuits.
