YouTube Musicians Release CD
Are you one of the 300,000 people subscribed to DaveDays? How about one of charlieissocoollike’s 125,000 subscribers? If so, you’re familiar with their music. They, like thousands of other bedroom musicians, have been using YouTube for years to reach their listeners and fans. But until now, fans were stuck with refreshing YouTube videos to hear their favorite musicians’ songs.
I recognized this problem a few months ago, and teamed up with Hank Green (vlogbrothers) to create DFTBA Records, a record label solely for YouTube musicians. And, today, we are releasing our first compilation CD, DFTBA Records, Volume One.
The compilation CD features new songs from YouTube musicians Dave Days, Hank Green, Julia Nunes, myself, Chameleon Circuit, Dr. Noise, eddplant, charlieissocoollike, musicfromblueskies, Tom Milsom, Michael Aranda, sweetafton23 and nerimon.
The compilation album is available now as a digital download (mp3 format) from AmazonMP3 and will later be available on iTunes and on CD. It will be exciting to see how these bands grow once they are not restrained to just YouTube video windows.
DFTBA Records has numerous releases planned for this summer, including a full debut album from Dave Days, in addition to the highly-anticipated Chameleon Circuit debut.
