Thanks for starting this thread guys - I am eager to see where it goes. As an indie artist myself Todd Hunter Band - Canadian pop rock for fans of R.E.M., Coldplay, Blue Rodeo, Counting Crows, Crowded House, Barenaked Ladies, etc. - HOME (I use CDBABY and HOSTBABY and met Derek when he gave a presentation in my hometown of Winnipeg, MB, Canada), I try to learn how to market my music online, especially since I don't physically tour/perform live very often. So far, with the exception of getting one sweet TV Film song placement and some digital sales, I have found that almost ALL of my music income has come from live performances and their residual CD and t-shirt sales. So far, I don't believe there are very many people willing to seek out (and pay for)new music online, unless it is created by an artist they are already familiar with. Naturally, I hope this situation will change to the benefit of everyone...
