New Service To Increase Ways for Artists & Labels to Monetize Music
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 8 /CNW/ -- TheTrackShack.com has launched a
first-of-its-kind marketplace to allow artists and labels to buy & sell music
CDs, Songs & Tracks. In contrast to music websites that sell CDs and songs,
like Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby, TheTrackShack.com allows users to sell music
CDs, songs and their individual production tracks.
Users of the new service pay a one-time fee of US$24.99 and can upload up
to 15 songs with up to 20 tracks per song. A maximum of two (2) gigabytes of
storage is included for each CD, with 80% of proceeds paid to users.
Coinciding with its launch, TheTrackShack.com, in association with
Strokeland Records, has released Bumped Up To First Class, the first ever CD
to make available its digital library of songs and tracks. Featuring artists
like Huey Lewis, Edgar Winter, and Lenny Pickett, Bumped Up To First Class
includes over 270 tracks, including Mix Minus Ones (e.g. minus drums, minus
vox), Vox Mixes, Horns, Session Video Clips, Sheet Music, and Lyrics. Tracks
are exclusively offered at The Shack.
"Bumped Up is a great roadmap to show artists & labels how to use our
service," stated Jeff Tamelier, producer. "When you eliminate the drums from a
song, you create a whole new way for fans to experience your music."
"Whether you play along with your favorite band or let others
Frankenstein Your Music(R) into a new tune, TheTrackShack.com increases the
number of ways a musician can monetize their music," added Chuck Hansen, CEO.
