The problem with the current sites for artists is that while they deserve credit for being pioneers, they really only help people like Madonna... everyone else pretty much disappears into a sea of everything from wanna-be's to someone singing in the shower. The second highest complaint from artists regarding the existing sites out there is the poor quality of downloaded music.

According to founder and 'Director Artistico' Terry Church, himself an indie muso, "The quality of the music that is coming in proves to us that the difference between success and failure comes down to one thing—regular promotion. That's what http://www.publicrevolution.com gives indie artists that no other site in the world really does well." Unlike anything yet seen on the net, Public Revolution was designed from day one to comprehensively showcase indie artists and their music, music videos, ringtones, workshop videos, gig reviews, tour wear, audio and video interviews, gigs from hell stories, and heaps more.
Local Brisbane and Gold Coast bands Elation, The Winnie Coopers, and Mousewagon were the first to jump on board with Carousel taking the lead in Melbourne. Fans too have already begun discovering the site, coming from as far away as Finland—even though the site's launch is a sneak preview while the call for indie artists goes out. "The hit counter is already starting to climb and we haven't even begun marketing to the public." said Mr Milne.
Nick Demchinsky, Public Revolution's 'Sales Generalisimo' has been beating the pavement talking directly to the artists and believes that Public Revolution's quality over quantity mandate is a key attractor for indie bands. "The problem with the current sites for artists is that while they deserve credit for being pioneers, they really only help people like Madonna... everyone else pretty much disappears into a sea of everything from wanna-be's to someone singing in the shower. The second highest complaint from artists regarding the existing sites out there is the poor quality of downloaded music." In contrast to this, Public Revolution seems only interested in serious musos that are serious about their careers, and have seriously good music... so take a hint - idols need not apply.
It's easy to see that Public Revolution was built by professionals with professionals in mind. Take a look under the bonnet and you'll see a site that has been custom designed from the ground up to accommodate the latest web technologies such as a streaming radio player dedicated to indie music that allows artists to ‘Pay for Play’ and to advertise via interviews and voice promos in the genre of their choice - to a global audience.
So if you're an indie artist looking to sell your music and other stuff online and/or are wanting to seriously grow your fan base for local or international tours, go and see this very cool site at http://www.publicrevolution.com — but before you do, it's worth knowing that Public Revolution is giving away 100 free independent artist/band memberships to celebrate their soon to be announced public launch.
