Musicians across the Internet

Reviews | Artists | Resources

This page is for and about musicians who are active on the Internet. I started this mainly because I'd like to encourage other people to check out these cool people's music (and my own band, TWISTED HELICES), but now I am beginning to acquire a cool collection of truly "independent" music. Why go independent? Check out my review of the Maximum Rock 'n' Roll reprint Everything you've wanted to know about major labels. Also, read my DiY guide, the Free Music Philosophy, and look up the list of free music advocates, for ideas on how to go about recording and distributing your music.


Under each artist's name I include other popular bands who I think are similar. This isn't the best way to do it, but I think it is an efficient way of judging whether or not you will like the artist in question for further investigation. Check out my choices for the best recordings and concerts, which include many independent artists.
