After many years of knocking down doors, hitting the road playing the circuit and several high profile music recording projects hoping for a major label record deal, opportunity has finally arrived for singer, songwriter, guitarist Dan Rio.

With the music industry having undergone many changes since the arrival of digital distribution the time seemed just right for the release of Dan Rio's new album "Listen To The Rain".

Media outlets, newspapers like the New York Times aren't sure how to talk about what's going on. The best selling music downloads chart in the Monday June 29th New York Times business section shows Drake a Tunecore artist, charting at # 4 between (Sean Kingston and Lady Gaga). Tunecore is a music and delivery distribution service. What this means for the unsigned artist is that he can now possibly compete with many artist on Billboards top 40 charts.

Dan having worked with national recording artist on various recording projects such as Clarence Clemons, Billy Squire, Duke Williams and The Extremes and the James Montgomery Band is just glad that he will not have to depend on a major label to promote his new record.

The album is scheduled for digital release September 16, 2009 and was produced by Buddy Turner and James Avery for Starpower Entertainment and recorded at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia Pa on Dan's current label Figleaf Records. The record will be available digitally at http://www.itunes.com , Napster, Rhapsody, MusicNet, Groupie Tunes, http://www.Lala.com , Shockhound, Amie Street and can be heard at http://www.uplaya.com and http://www.jango.com and just about anywhere you can find music online.

Says Dan "I have all the confidence in the world that my current label Figleaf Records will do everything they can to get my music to the public'. Figleaf Records is headed by Dan's life long friend Bob Figlo.

Dan also says "Bob even went as far as hunting down Frank Dileo I mean Michael Jackson's manager just so he could ask him if he would listen to my music and see if he would give his opinion. Bob who was my manager before we recorded "Listen To The Rain" was working his day job in Newtown Bucks County Pa, as a car salesman. Bob finds out that Frank Dileo lives not far from the dealership and frequents a local pizzeria and proceeds to go there every night until Frank shows up. After finally meeting and making friends Frank promises to listen to my music. About a month later, with Bob on the Frank Dileo watch Bob and Frank meet again. Frank must have liked what he heard at least enough to give Bob a contact at Capital Records and he even autographed a copy of the best selling book "Hit Men" that he was featured in as one of the most important men in the record business.

After another near miss Dan is hoping opportunity won't pass him by again!
