Unsigned Band? Earn Dosh At Kerchoonz.com
5th Dec 2008 | 12:30
If you're in an unsigned band and not making any money a new website could be the answer.
At Kerchoonz.com you can earn cash while your fans download for FREE. And it's also free* to sign up in December.
The groundbreaking new website was swamped by over 8 million hits in November, and is to scrap the £12.50 fee to mark the start of Kerchoonz Live - a month long competition to find the hardest working unsigned acts on the circuit.
Bands and artists have until the end of December to use Kerchoonz.com to promote themselves and earn money in a bid to bag a recording session at a famous Glasgow studio.
As well as being able to record three tracks at the hands of top producer Ian Morrow (Wet Wet Wet, Rod Stewart, Seal), acts will get to keep all money earned from plays and downloads on Kerchoonz.com.
“I can imagine it’s going to be huge and why not?” says former Stereophonics star Stuart Cable. “Becoming a professional musician in a band is the hardest job in the world - so to do it this way is great."
The revolutionary site pays unsigned acts half a penny for every play and up to 10p for every download – by far the largest payments available to any act choosing to give away their music online.
Artists can even earn money by recommending other musicians to the site and, with no limit on the number of people you can recommend, it’s the hardest working acts that will reap the greatest rewards.
Kerchoonz.com is currently locked in talks with both independent and major record labels to bring further content to the site, providing a comprehensive music catalogue for fans.
*The sign-up fee is payable when you start earning revenue from Kerchoonz.com
