INDISTR Launches – This is Independent Music
This morning, INDISTR launched. Indistr offers a way for indie music creators to sell their music to fans. Seems pretty similar to Amie Street. Indistr is founded by Benjamin Gott and is self-funded out of Michigan. Check out the Indistr Life blog for more information from Benjamin.
The big difference between Indistr and Amie Street is in the pricing model. Indistr uses a self-set pricing; that is I set the price as the artist and make 75% of the sales. Amie Street uses a volume pricing model where songs begin free and then move up based on downloads to a max of 99 cents.
Benjamin says, "A new conduit is truly needed – there are way too many artist and groups out there with amazing talent, vision, branding knowledge and market savvy with no real distribution channel where they control every aspect and see the majority of income. It’s just needed right now – indie music has truly arrived."
I will say that typing Indistr is not easy. You just want to go for the E after the I. I hope that people don’t accidentally go to the wrong site because of it!
Good luck to Benjamin and the team and we wish them all the success in the world!
