Online PR News – 26-April-2010 – – Mundelein, Illinois, April 26th, 2010 – IMRadio, an underground movement of musicians uniting thousands of artists worldwide, announced today the start of its updated open-source radio station on the Internet at www.IMRadio.com.
Any artist in the world can upload an original song for free airplay at IMRadio for thousands to enjoy. Over the past year, IMRadio, which stands for Independent Musician Radio, has attracted an even larger audience and has received much recognition from music industry scouts. Recently, seven independent artists signed contracts with two major promoters in New York and London due to their IMRadio exposure. Another artist, CiJay, from Richmond, Virginia received a recording contract from Serenia Records.
“This type of exposure is just the thing that musicians are looking for,” said Paddy Noonan, Founder of IMRadio . “With over 50 countries now represented, you can listen to bands from Germany or Italy, singers from Athens or Nashville, and even rappers from Montana. These are the bands that the suits at traditional radio stations don’t give a chance. With us, every artist, singer, songwriter, band, poet, and comedian gets free airplay on IMRadio.”
IMRadio’s number one purpose is to make money for the musician. Beginning a few weeks ago, artists can now create their own online store at IMRadio to sell personalized merchandise featuring their own logos and band names. At zero cost to the artist, these online stores offer a no-risk revenue stream that will help build awareness for the artist while putting money in their pockets. Other innovative revenue streams are under development at this time. At the IMRadio website, both artists and listeners can interact, review songs, enter contests, add to forums and blogs, and place a widget on their home page to share their music with their fans. Artists receive a profile page where they can communicate with their local fans, post music videos, meet music industry people, promote their upcoming concerts, and introduce themselves to a worldwide audience.
