GoodStorm--an Internet-based company hell-bent on empowering bands to sell their own music and merchandise anywhere on the web--will hit the road to Austin, Texas for the 2007 SXSW music and film festival to launch three new music-centric tools. GoodStorm’s powerful new tools will allow bands to upload and sell their own music anywhere on the web. In a direct attack on the $.99 standard set by Apple, artists can sell their music for as little as $.25 a track. Better yet, fans can also sell their favorite tracks on their own site with the TuneStorm MP3 player and keep a share of the profit on every track sold. The TuneStorm player will debut.
“These new tools will enable bands and musicians to get their music out to more people while earning real money for their tracks. The TuneStorm player will completely redefine what it means to sell music online, where it’s sold, and who benefits,” said David Katznelson, Director of Music Development at GoodStorm.
To demonstrate the power of this cutting-edge technology, GoodStorm has partnered with 30 bands to sell popular and exclusive tracks through the TuneStorm MP3 player. Live demos of the player and other GoodStorm eCommerce tools can be seen at the official San Francisco party at SXSW on Friday, March 16th at Spiro's, DATE 611 Red River at 6th, Austin TX 12:00am - 6:00pm GoodStorm will also start the week at The Birdman Showcase on Wednesday March 14th at Club De Ville between 8pm and 1am.
