Distro Done Right
Because it's by You!!!

When it comes to distribution and promotion you realize that it must be done in coordination...right? Well, when you deal with distro companies you never know what will happen.

**They may not send your CD to the appropriate stores or media companies. **You may never see any of the money from the CD sales since they have control over your product. **And, if you're an indie band you will probably get stuck in the "Local Music" section of your local stores; if there is one...and how many people really look there?

What we offer is a featured position in major record chains across the country. In an interactive, touch screen "Kiosk", consumers will be able to see, hear and read all about the bands and labels involved with Areamusic. The same information that is on the module will be on our website 24/7. This is not a is an actual ordering platform as well. This eliminates the hassle of dealing with distribution companies who take a percentage of the sales... if they decide to do their job properly. Remember, Area music Entertainment L.L.C. will take no money from CD sales.

Also, we make promotion and touring 110% easier. With possibilities of featured positioning around the world, and print ads provided by Area music, you will be able to pick and choose where you would like people to see, hear and read about you. This helps a great deal when planning a tour. For example, if you are going to tour NYC/Chicago/Boston/and Miami... you would put your CD in spots only in those cities if you choose to do so. **OR** Where ever you would like to build a fan's all up to the artist.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to shoot.

Good luck with all that you do!

Leeward Terrace.
Leeward Terrace will be performing at the North berg Tavern on Friday September 11th. They have a style that is completely unique to the Columbus scene. It is very difficult to categorize this up and coming band because of the diverse influences of each of the bands four members. Everything from John Coltrane, Steely Dan, Rush, Boz Scaggs, and Frank Zappa just to name a few. While Leeward Terrace always puts the music first, they love to get on stage and let it all hang out and have a great time. Always precise yet never pretentious, Leeward Terrace is here to stay. Also on the bill will be another up-and-comer in the local scene, "Twelve Days Dry." They to have their own unique blend of rock, folk, and pop. It will be a great show for all music lovers!

Live (Breakthrough Connections)
The big news downtown was topless strippers. It was on T.V. news, and all the office folks were talking. They were giving away free passes to the Gentlemen's bars. Crowds were incredible! The downtown does not see the same kind of reaction to musical performance. Go figure.

Cessation of Life
CD (breakthough Connections)
Check out the new samples on C.O.L. at the "Breakthrough Connections" website. They are from California, and we'd be interested in any feedback. These guys are knockin' 'em out in California! They're along the lines of "Slayer" and other demon metal bands. Please check out the other groups on the site and give us your opinion. Cringe is the coolest, and we at Breakthrough Connections want to help Cringe go global with some of the Columbus Campus Artists!

Web Happenings
Atlantic Records Chat
I just wanted to relate a late night experience. After "the late gig" I returned home to unwind, and turned on the computer. I decided to check out some record company websites to find out about submission requirements. Some had 'em, some didn't. I entered a chat room on one site (Atlantic Records, I think). I was amazed that there was absolutely no discussion of music going on, only talk of getting high, and trying to insult the other people involved. I tried to express concern that the value of music in our world might be dying, along with other positive arts. No One Cared! Unless it's sex or money - draw your own conclusions, and don't blame me for pessimism! Does music still matter!? Mad Man
