#921 Free music from the actual artist

I’m subscribed to too many music and artist blogs and websites.

So much that my inbox is inundated with emails of music news and info (which doesn’t bother me at all because… I LOVE IIIIIIT).

Not only do I enjoy reading about music and seeing what the creative music world is getting up to, I also love it when musicians give out free music! It’s like a present!

Yes, this has been known to happen and it’s becoming more common these days. I suppose you could call it a “sweetener” to keep you listening. Whatever the reason, it’s very clever and very…


Oh and here’s an awesome example! A producer called COUNTRY is giving away her first original track (she usually remixes/collaborates). She’s also allowing a free download of the video too! If you’re keen on downloading the track and/or the video, click where it says “vimeo” on the video clip near the volume bar. There’s links to her soundcloud account for the free track in the video’s description:

◥◤ COUNTRY – Run from Country on Vimeo.

  1. I thought I couldn’t relate but I have had free music from the artist themselves!
    I was at an outdoor event on a gorgeous sunny day, by the Vancouver sails last September when Chris Derksen offered a mesmerizing performance, for free during Aboriginal Spirit Day! There was an amazing drummer and native dancer as well. I was moved to tears!
    Although these are not from that day, here’s 2 from West Coast awards nominee, Cris Derksen:)

    • That is TOO DEADLY! (Deadly means good/great/awesome/cool in Australian Indigenous lingo.) How awesome and special is that?! Something you can hold on to forever :).

      I have just received an email today from The Strokes who have a free download of one of their tracks from their new album that hasn’t even been released yet!!!! WOOO!!! I LOVE FREE STUFF! Lol 🙂

      • I just listened to some Stokes…they are awesome alright! I think I need to buy some new music, for sure!
        btw, we used to say “deadly” all the time in our youth…it has come around again!
        Try bodacious, perpendicular and discombobulated and see what comes out of those! Hahahahaha!

        • That’s great! Glad you like ’em! 🙂

          Deadly has been around for years! We actually have an Indigenous awards event called the Deadly Awards and another healthy promotions team called “Deadly Choices”. It’s pretty cool. 🙂

    • Hey Wendy,
      Hope you’re well. I should email you a “catch-up” updated on what’s been going on!

      I have some drafts that will be ready to post soon, but if you want to contribute something I’d be more than happy to post it! If you don’t feel like it/are too busy (it’s hard to find motivation to write sometimes), then that’s absolutely-dootily understandable and fine!

      (Hopefully I’m not boring people too much with my posts lol. I certainly don’t want this blog to be all about me!!!!!)

      Love and light xoxo

      • Hey Lizee, I have submitted 2 or 3! I sure hope they’re in the file! “Breaking Silence” was most recent and on my birthday, matter of fact! Hope you’re doing great! Thanks for thinking about me:) Hope you find the posts! Wendy

        • Hey Wendy,

          Well this has thrown a spanner in the works! For some reason they’re not popping up in the posts section??? Did you save what you wrote anyhow? Could you possibly copy and paste this in an email?

          I do remember you have a new username and email address now – maybe I have to re-add you into the contributors section…?

        • Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the 25th! That was the day that we suddenly did not have power at home due to the cyclone and floods. So I wasn’t able to wish you a happy birthday, I’m sorry! xoxo Hope you had a great one.

  2. I just downloaded the Pandora app for my phone and I’m loving it. I’ve had so many different people in my ears today that’s its crazy!! I’ve jumped from Jack White to Halestorm to Mudvayne to Linkin Park to Jimi Hendrix to Tom Petty to Breaking Benjamin to Miranda Lambert to Slipknot to Taylor Swift!!!!
