New York, NY (PRWEB) June 5, 2006
With the launch of BreakThru Radio (BTR) last summer, more than 300 artists have been showcased and now have a fan base of more than 2.5 million a week. R&B singer David Goode was one of the first artists to develop a following through BTR and has been chosen as Vibe’s “Unsigned Draft Pick” in their latest issue.
“I started getting air play on a few college stations such as 91.3 WVUD (University of Delaware), but I feel that BTR has definitely helped me reach a fan base I was not able to reach on my own,” said Goode. “I feel that internet radio, especially BTR, is huge because it allows an artist to reach out independently. Now an artist can have a growing fan base built up that's huge without ever getting air play on a major station.”
Featured artists showcased on BTR have not only gained a larger fan base, but have grown in stature. After being played on BTR, Bedouin Soundclash is now opening for Ben Harper, and the Giraffes are the opening act for Eagles of Death Metal.
BTR will be launching its new website next month, featuring the BTR music store. Listeners will have the ability to download their favorite artist's songs for $.99, most of which goes directly to the artist.
BTR broadcasts 24 hours a day on http://www.breakthruradio.com or http://www.NYTrack.com, New York's only website dedicated to the tri-state high school track community, thus reaching over 5 million high school students. Artists can submit their original works by logging on to http://www.breakthruradio.com and selecting the “Contact Us” page.
