First 'Independent' Artists Arrive
Yesterday's PaidContent.org notes also mentioned an event of significance:
- First independent artists is now available on iTunes: starting today, Moby is on iTunes...
In this context, "Independent" artists and labels simply refer to those who are not part of the five major record labels. Apple recently opened their iTunes Music Service to independent labels and artists. Jody Whitesides notes being "very first person to sign up for CDbaby's Digital Distribution" and will also be available through iTunes as well as a number of other online music servicecs.
