Online Rock: Empowering Musicians

Press Release


OnlineRock Launches Label Express
Program Gives Up-and-Coming Bands a First Chance

SAN CARLOS, Calif., August 15, 2002 - OnlineRock, a music community providing musicians with the tools and services needed to promote their music, today introduced its new "Label Express" program.

The "Label Express" program gives up-and-coming bands and musicians a chance to get their music out to their fans under a label environment. "By providing bands and musicians with CDs to sell along with some online promotion," said Steven Beck, Founder and President of OnlineRock, "we feel this just might be the break that some bands need."

OnlineRock will manufacture a run of 50 CDs using professional in-house CDR duplicators and ship half of them to the band to sell; the other half will be sold from the OnlineRock CD Store. OnlineRock will split the profits (minus costs) 50/50 with the band or musician. Bands will never have to put out any money and will retain the rights to their music. OnlineRock will also feature the artists on our Web site and include their music on our Internet radio station.

OnlineRock is currently seeking musicians to sign to the new program. Bands and solo artists who have some music already recorded and that play a few live gigs each month are invited to submit demo packages to OnlineRock Records, 735 Industrial Road, Suite 212, San Carlos, CA 94070.
