Interview with Evan lowenstein CEO of Stageit.com
Many indie artists are waking up to a realization that their spring tour schedule is getting cancelled. The CorVid-19 Virus has venues shutting down and cancelling shows, which is especially damaging to the touring artist who makes their living off live performances. Thought not a replacement for touring and performing in venues Stageit.com may be a way to create a revenue stream for a touring artist while we weather out this virus lockdown.

Review of the Warm Audio WA-273 Preamp
Review of the Warm Audio WA-273 Preamp
When you think about the sound of the early 1970’s music you cannot escape the sound of Rupert Neve’s 1073 preamp and EQ! Starting at London’s Wessex Studio in 1970 Rupert Neve installed the first console with the new 1073 preamp and EQ, from that point on the sound of the 1073 circuit became the center of the legendary Neve 80-series consoles. These have been one of the most in demand recording consoles in the world and even to this day are considered a standard because of it’s unique character and tone it gives to anything that is put through it.

LIVE MUSIC SURVEY!
We have a new reality in the music industry today. The new music consumer no longer looks at music as a commodity to purchase, but more as something they have unlimited access to. This has affected the whole industry but nowhere is it more evident then with the Independent Artist! During the 90’s the independent artist had the opportunity to take over the distribution of their music and have all the revenue come directly to them. CD Sales were still brisk, download sales were starting and was a windfall revenue stream for the indie artist. Today those streams are drying up and now the Indie Artist must depend on touring and performing live as their main income stream.
