Press Release:Press Release for Future Now music on IMRadio.com
- Imradio.com has been providing independent artists, like Future Now, the opportunity to have their music heard since their launch on the internet back in February, 2009. Imradio.com is setup as several individual broadcasts much like radio stations on the radio. Initially, the broadcast stations are separated by location (broadcasts spanning a total of 52 countries world wide including the United States which is also split up by each of the 50 states and individual stations within the other countries). Although there are stations for each of these, there are also stations in each of these locations that are based on certain genres or styles of music. Then, ultimately, there are what would be considered All Location and All Genre stations that provides an overall grouping of all the music that is available at the site. In a nutshell, when a song is heard even on a specific Massachusetts broadcast station, it has the potential to be heard in China if they choose to open that station. So, any music on the site has the potential to be heard in every place that has access to the internet from all over the world (including the 52 countries it lists as broadcast stations) – even in the small coffee house in South Africa or India.
- Future Now joined and started uploading their music beginning on June 19, 2009. Since this time, they have uploaded various songs at different times to add to the radio stations – totaling 34 songs. Currently, imradio.com presents a two-day (48 hour) schedule for its broadcasts, regardless of stations. Future Now’s songs, as of December 13th, are currently scheduled to be played 5,160 times during this 48 hour period. The total number of plays of Future Now music have spanned and usually maintain somewhere in the range of 4,800 - 5,200 times every two days. As additional songs are uploaded to other genres, the total song play 48 hour period numbers increase accordingly for a period of time following the upload. IMRadio.com Future Now profile views is 13,265 since August 13th with over 1,503 comments or messages related to their music. And, as far as total plays of all songs since they were initially uploaded (first songs uploaded back on June 19, 2009), the total song plays is at 355,162 total plays of Future Now’s songs as of the count on January 3rd.
- As a brief update on current information. Future Now’s IMRadio.com profile has received significant attention in recent months for their original songs, all published by Davies Dawn Music [BMI]. On October 9, 2009, they were additionally honored by being placed on IMRadio.com HomePage Featured Band Floating Wall. This placement allows for Davies Dawn Music’s published material to be even more showcased at a time when IMRadio.com is being viewed by many of the Music Publishing and Recording Industry Executives and fans all over the world and where IMRadio.com is involved in launching various marketing campaingns for the site itself and artists that are on the site – all of which increases the exposure of the Davies Dawn Music name and musical product.
- Also, on October 23rd, Davies Dawn Music and Future Now, with the prior approval of IMRadio.com site owner, posted the following message in the hopes of beginning a movement within the Independent Musicians that are having their music heard around the world on this site similar to that of the earlier days of FM radio and later for Satellite radio. There has been a very favorable response from those on the site as can be seen in the Comments included as part of Addendum 4 herein; to wit:
- TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT IMRadio -- Got to thinking. What if each of us independent musicians told our family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio.com, how besides the main station, it has stations for each of the states individually, 52 countries, and just about every musical genre -- reaching any internet connection around the world. We could tell them in person, on the internet or at small or large venues. Anyone we tell would appreciate the convenience of such good music from independent musicians on their computer. It would be such a good way to help all of us reach even more listeners. With IMRadio, we aren't just waiting at the mercy of some major label to decide whether or not they will let us be heard around the world. There are enough of us that the outreach could be exponential. And, wouldn't it be a great way to say 'thank you' to Paddy and all of the other fine folks who have put IMRadio.com on the world's musical map. They have put in money, time, energy and dedication, and all they have asked of us in return is to upload our music and profile. I am sure that they have great plans to publicize IMRadio and bring it to even more listeners. In the meantime, through, wouldn't it be great if we could all help a little by just taking a little time each day to tell family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio. It wouldn't cost a dime, just a little time. Yours, in Musical Solidarity, Paul.
