Map and Driving Directions

Nothing short of revolutionary. Within minutes online and little upfront cost, today's budding rock star can sell CDs/downloads on Amazon, an online marketplace of over 10 million shoppers, submit their music for play on Pandora, beloved Internet radio with audience of 16 million, aggregate fans on the hip social network imeem alongside chart-topping megastars, and join the myspacemusic/spinmagazine community.

Join us as we discuss the democratization of the music industry, digital pathways to fame, and the business and legal issues facing this new middle class.
