    Ep. #71

    Discussing Direct to Fan Music Marketing
    with Derek Webb from NoiseTrade

    Join myself (Brian Thompson) & Michael Brandvold for a 50 min. discussion with Derek Webb, independent artist and one of the guys behind the direct to fan music platform, NoiseTrade.

    NoiseTrade is a unique site that features thousands of albums directly from the artists themselves, completely free and completely legal.

    Fans get free music. Artists connect with new fans. Everybody wins.

    A great record is its own best marketing tool. Thousands of dollars in promotion can’t accomplish what one great record can, especially if it’s set free to roam around and connect with the right people.

    Click play below and dive in to this incredibly intriguing discussion with an innovator in direct to fan music marketing.
