The Weed Files announces its free Artist Area
Sainte-Foy, Québec, October 18, 2005 - With the launch of its
Artist Area featuring unlimited uploads and free lifetime
hosting, The Weed Files provides virtually costless
do-it-yourself online music distribution.
Artists and labels are invited to sign up for a free account at
artists.weed-files.com where they'll be able to create artist
pages, upload Weed files and promotional material such as photos
and banners, and select featured and podsafe files.
Downloadable at no cost, Weed files can be played 3 times for
free and shared legally. Once bought, the files can be played at
will, burned to CD, and transferred to a portable player. The
artists get 50% on every sale of their files, and don't need to
be signed to a label or even have a full album produced to get
started. The listeners who redistribute their files are rewarded
with up to 20% of the sales price.
"For music fans, Weed files are a great way to actively support
the artists they like. For the artists, it's an opportunity to
get the most of already existing networks of contacts and the
seemingly unlimited connectivity of the Internet," said
Christopher Stewart, owner of The Weed Files. "For podcasters,
music bloggers, and P2P users, Weed files have the potential to
turn hobbies into economically profitable activities. It really
is a win-win solution for everybody involved."
To date, close to 90,000 titles have been "Weedified" including
music from such diverse artists as Tom Waits, Count Basie, The
Presidents of The United States of America, Roger Joseph Manning
Jr., Abby Travis, Kelly Clarkson, and countless others.
