Singers get new opportunities

Actually, after those transition times will be gone, it may be a much easier world for music makers.

Twenty years ago, recording an album was a very expensive process, involving a lot of people and huge studio costs. Those times are gone. Do musicians still need record companies ? Well, it depends in which countries. In lands where people still buy CDs, you need distribution networks, you need CD physical production etc. Those things are still complex to handle when you are just a composer, a singer. After all, those things are not your job.

But in countries where people do NOT buy CDs… what are record companies doing ? Well… they used to produce videos. That was the last usage of those elephants. Without income, they can’t even pay for videos.

So, what’s the future ? Who will pay for videos ? Probably…advertising… brand & product placement… as usual.

But, in the meantime, singers and composers find new opportunities around the world to actually try to SELL their music. WATUNES does that job. WaTunes is a social media distribution service that enables music artists and record labels to sell their music, music videos, and audiobooks to leading music store services, including iTunes, Napster, and eMusic.

WATUNES used to take a fee for that. They do NOT anymore ! The service is now completely FREE for singers, composers, producers and labels.

Now… what are you waiting for ?
