It's difficult for Canadian independent bands to get discovered, and for music fans to find the latest in emerging tunes. As a result, Indie Band Canada has sought out to meet this need by helping bands get more exposure. The Indie band scene is emerging on the web and now Canadian artists/bands can get their tracks out for all to listen to--free of charge.
Indie Band Canada was dreamed up by Jason Kent and Winston So, in an effort to get more exposure for their own band. Initially it took over a year to develop and execute the delivery of the site. Both partners are innovators and it is expected that many changes and additions will come they enhance their offerings to serve the indie band music scene.
Indie Band Canada (http://www.indiebandcanada.com) has blasted onto the music scene as the first large scale independent Canadian music artist sanctuary. The web site is operated by musicians rather than a large corporate entity. In addition, Indie Band Canada provides phenomenal networking opportunities for emerging artists. As a result of Indie Band Canada, Canadian musicians now have an alternative to listing themselves on heavily commercialized American directories.
Not only is the site a great listening post for music lovers, it is filled with news about the independent Canadian band scene and has various tools that bands can utilize –all free of charge. In addition, the site has a merchandise store where visitors can buy albums from their favorite independent artists, and the site is constantly evolving with new additions.
No other site has developed Canadian indie artist support on the scale of Indie Band Canada. As a result the web site has become the place for indie artists and their listeners to hang. It’s a very user friendly experience and just as simple as tuning in on a radio. It is an excellent resource of the best Indie band music, and it can be tailored to your own personal style. “We became an overnight success” says Jason Kent a co-founder of Indie Band Canada. “We were thinking big – the site is a conglomerate of everything indie and we are #1 in our niche market,” adds Kent.
In addition to artists getting internet radio exposure and plays through IBCtunes (http://www.ibctunes.com), the site includes detailed information such as artist bio’s and pictures, songs, forums and music charts. You can also check out Cool Band Gear (http://www.coolbandgear.com) if you are interested in acquiring instruments and other equipment at auction via an Ebay style bid format.
