I have to agree that indie means NON big record company. For BB to be launching this service shows they are desperate. As for the Myspace thing, that shows they have some sort of vested interest in see the site rise from the ashes.... sad. Andre From Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood

I would love an unbiased opinion about my new work, but without comments and seeing a breakdown of each, it's a waste of money in my opinion. I need to know what WOULD make it a great song in their eyes, not that they don't "like it" because they listen to primarily Hip hop or Country.... Andre From Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood

I like having my MP3's RIGHT where I have them... I MAY use a locker to store them electronically JUST IN CASE of a HD failure or something like that...

I totally agree with the article... I see most of my own friends and relatives won't look at most posts on FB if they don't pertain to them directly... Not enough time in the day to go thru all your FB posts! Andre From Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood Please "LIKE" my page and support indie/local music!

It seems this is a hot topic for some reason when it should ring true. ANYTHING you do that is independent takes time, money and determination. If you want to open your own ANYTHING (pizza joint, strip club, band) you gotta work hard at it and go 110%! Andre from Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood

The jury's still out for me with the subscription services. I'm concerned with royalties and artist rights being lost in translation with these things! Andre From Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood

I for one ask people to pirate my music. It's a losing battle to ask people to not do it, as it is like a losing battle to talk to a brick wall... instead, I want to get something out there in hopes of getting great paying gigs and praying those fans that like the free stuff would like to support my premium quality songs that cost ALOT to produce. If not, then at least I could get my message out there and may change an opinion or view about life.

I think that one man's trash is another man's treasure. To critisize is to lay your opinions about the good, bad, and ugly about a particular thing you are contemplating. If the person is honestly criticizing a material, it shouldn't show bias, but fact based on the listening experience of the critic at that time.

It seems to me that the internet is a venue for those who won't show face to say whatever to whomever whenever they want to. I have a BA in Philosophy and understand that if I go to a person's online periodical, I do so with the understanding that it is written by a person. If I don't like what that person says, I simply don't partake. That's why I don't watch Fox News! Seriously though, don't let the busters get you in a frenzy. If you weren't getting some sort of negative feedback, then you aren't doing it right! Andre From Idlewood www.facebook.com/andrefromidlewood Please "LIKE" my page and support local/indie music!

I agree 100%. I am looking at just the local scene here in FL and in Charleston, SC where I used to live, and there are alot of musicians, me included, that make a living off of music and the scene. The big, bad wolf, or the music "industry" makes it seem like if they are not able to afford their limos and big houses anymore, somehow that means the musicians they have made money off of are now "hobbyists". I think that is not only rude, but a crock of BS. I say let the giant fall on it's face and give that middle class the chance to be heard!

I have to disagree. Indie music is huge right now with alot of indies taking home GRAMMYS. These get recognition not from the internet alone, but from LOCAL RADIO stations getting their CD and throwing it on and taking opinions from the masses. This trend will be hard to kill, even if you are in your connected car. Most children 15 and under still listen to radio because it is FREE and radios are cheap. They are the ones spending allowance on mp3s CDs and other things like tshirts. Andre from Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood Please "LIKE" my page and support local/indie music!

Art is Art. Promotion of that art should be what's on the table here, or anywhere for that matter. If Lady Gaga wants to use the mantra "any publicity is good publicity" then so be it. I think that IS her style: Fame Monster. I may not like it because she makes WAY more money and is more famous, but that's MY problem to deal with. The business is changing, but not before LG has her way with it first! Andre From Idlewood facebook.com/andrefromidlewood Please "LIKE" my page and support indie/local music!

He does have some great points. I am in the middle of recording an album and I would love for it to be paid for, but my main intent is to reach the hearts and minds of listeners and tell my story. I am putting free versions of the songs out there for the public, but the premium will be for premium listeners who would like to support my music.

I have just had this brought up by one of my friends in my own songwriting. She told me all my songs have something to do with a girl. I have had some highs and lows in my relationships, and I guess that is where all my raw emotion and feeling comes from, so I have to agree!
