There is music everywhere. You have it blaring from cars, radios, ipods, phones and various gadgets all over the world. The internet contributes to the spread of music.
The annoying part is, they need you to sign up first or download a program before you can actually listen to the music. That’s all well and good if the service is indeed good and you want to use the service for a long time. There are quite a few people who just want to check out what’s new, what’s popular and listen a bit before they decide to buy. Exactly as they would in a music shop.
That’s exactly what Artist Direct is. It simply is a music store. They have an extensive collection of music available for sale. They have music clips that you can listen to via streaming if you want to make sure you have the right piece. Everytime you choose to listen to an artist, the album it came from is listed as well as how much it costs. You can even check for the list of songs included in the album to make it even easier for you to make up your mind to download the CD.
Yes, they sell by the CD not by song. The artists worked hard to put together their albums so why not give the rest of the music in it a try even if they aren’t in the top 100. You may discover a new favorite.
While you’re visiting their site, check out the What’s Hot section and read some of the interviews they did. They have some cool contests there as well. Anyone want the latest ipod?
You may also want to check out their billboard to see which artists truly are the top sellers and you can keep up to date on the latest news about your favorite artists and happenings in the music industry via their news section.
