Many people believes that “true” musicians, bands and artists are being replaced by corporate profit motives.

With the recent global boost of unsigned bands who needs the record companies? If there is a platform to market your music right to fans the role of the middle man has forever changed.

The explosion in the UK of The Artic Monkeys and Gnarls Barkley are only 2 examples that the music loving public are aware that there is good music to be discovered on the internet. As both these “now successful” bands proved, creating their fan base on the internet first is an important step. Bands and artist now need to develop their place on the internet where they can repeat similar success.

Some individuals may believe that myspace is that place. However with the company’s initial success myspace (now worth million of dollars) has been transformed into a corporation itself. It is now as hard to get noticed on myspace as it is on national radio. This is where the new breed of internet websites like Epictunes comes in.
