I’ve found something that might interest you as someone involved in music.

I own my own online download store that all bands should look into to suppliment their existing web page. The idea of having a website is to attract fans to your site to hear your music and maybe come to a show or something. But what if they want to buy your music? Do you have an easy way to sell it to them without having to produce and mail cds? What if you could direct them from your web page to a site where they could buy and download one of your songs right then? Of course you would want to check that out.

My store is If you go there you will see one of my bands (Captain Hi Top) featured on the front page along with all of the major artists. You can get your own site like this to sell your music for as little as 30.00 a year. Click on the commerical at the bottom of the page to see more info. You can see the options by clicking on “become a retailers.” You can get your music into the burnlounge catalog for free and they pay royalties to the artist in the range of 55-75 cents on the dollar per download. And if you own your own site they pay 5 cents on top of that for every song you sell whether its your own or the Rolling Stones or whoever.

It totally makes sense for every band with a web page to have a complimentary burnlounge store to sell their music.

If you don’t want to look at having your own site, you can still get your music on Burnlounge for free (30 thousand websites like mine.) I can email you the documents you would need to fill out to do that. Its easy and takes about three weeks to get your stuff up there. I would be happy to feature you on my front page if you submitted your music and would keep your cd there as long as people were downloading your music from me. You could direct them to my site from your myspace page.

You can find more info at . Click on “sell music”, features and “want to sell your music on burnlounge?” to download a pdf with info about it.

I would be happy to send you a code for a free song just for trying out my site if you are interested. Even if you don’t want to sell your music through me I’d love to have you as a customer.
