Dewey Beach, DE (November 9, 2005)–During the 4th Annual Dewey Beach Music Conference and Festival, 25 performers signed up for inclusion on DreamMakersMP3.com, an online music service for independent musicians operated by the Barber Shop Studios, a recording facility located in Hopatcong, NJ. Members of the Barber Shop team, along with noted producers Jason Corsaro and Tony Fortuna, attended the festival, which featured approximately 175 music artists performing on 17 stages over a three-night span, to promote the site to musicians and music lovers.
“Since introducing DreamMakersMP3.com, we’ve attended various music festivals and shows in the Northeast to attract musicians and fans to the site,” stated Scott Barber, owner of the Barber Shop Studios. “Our efforts over the past several months have helped generate substantial momentum, as more and more artists are posting music onto DreamMakersMP3.com and 2,000 new visitors to the site in September alone. With our success at the Dewey Beach Music Festival, we’re sure to see additional traffic to the site.”
With DreamMakersMP3.com, unsigned musicians can post their songs, videos, tour dates and photos to the website for free. Once visitors register, they can access the information posted on the site. It is the band’s decision whether or not listeners will be able to download the creative work, or if they can listen through streaming files.
As DreamMakersMP3.com continues to build interest, the Barber Shop will consider offering musicians that consistently appear on the site’s Top Ten list an opportunity to record an EP at the state-of-the-art recording/production facility. Interest in the EP will then be generated by Waffle Makers, the Barber Shop’s in-house production company.
