I feel very fortunate to live in this country
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 20, 2008
Astrum Records recording artist Michael Paige has been invited by the U.S. Naval Station of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to perform at its Memorial Day Beach and Music Festival on May 26. In support of the troops, Michael will be performing a handful of original material, from 'Da Le', his first Latin single supported by Clear Channel Online Music & Radio, to 'Dance', one of his most popular songs with a Latin twist.
On this coming Memorial Day, Michael will be providing a complimentary free music download offer of the "Dance" remix track to the troops and their families. "I feel very fortunate to live in this country," states Michael. "Its ironic going to perform in Cuba, a country that my mother and father and wife had to leave," he adds.
The performance and interaction with troops will be filmed for performance footage, as well as Michael's documentary, The Indie Decision. The trailer for the documentary is available now to view at TheIndieDecision.com, which gives a sense of true music independence.
Michael is looking forward to share his story with media relations through the Internet, print media, radio and TV. Feel free to reach out to Josh East at MusiK1 to schedule interviews, features or reviews by email at media @ astrumrecords.com.

About The Indie Decision
The Indie Decision documentary concentrates on the reality of how music recording artist Michael Paige has concluded that signing with a major record label is no longer an attractive path to follow. Instead, the role of independence prevails by forming his own record label and publishing arm, resulting in a strong, yet gutsy move during the most crucial time in his career. As an emerging artist, Michael Paige explores the challenges of executing traditional record campaign techniques within the Digital Age, while the team behind Michael's record campaign reveals strategic methods on how reforming industry standards are in the hands of music independence.
