Thread Name: Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen CD: Cross the Water
Subject: Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen CD
Just got an email from Grey Larsen's list regarding his new
CD with Cindy Kallett.
A remarkable collaboration.
You can find it here
They've certainly got the music right. But the other thing
they've got right is their distribution method. You can get
the whole CD for $15.00 plus shipping. Or you can buy individual
copies of each of the thirteen tracks for a dollar each on the
web site. Or, you can listen to all of the tracks in their entirety,
for free, streamed from the site.
This 'bread upon the waters' approach seems to be an improvement
over even what most CD Baby artists are doing...if more folk artists
would use it, folk music might be a lot more competitive in vying
for being heard over the 'pop' music the distributors would foist
on us and our kids.
It seems to be powered by the web site service that they (and
Cindy) use for the web site.
