It is widely recognized that online availability is the current wave of music fans. At present p2p (peer to peer) web-sites dominate the online music market, resulting in loss of sales for the recording companies and artists.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) estimates that 2.6 billion music files are downloaded each month through the various p2p based web-sites. The music industry is frantically brainstorming for ways to eliminate the financial threat of p2p downloading.
A quick search within these p2p web-sites would indicate that christian labels and artists are equally at risk. Our research has found every nationally recognized christian artist we could think of listed for p2p downloading.
When we polled christians that are participating in p2p we have found that the attraction of instant availability overrides the ethical questions they may have.
Risen1Music.com is positioned to capture the attention of the online christian community by offering high quality free downloads.
Each artist featured on Risen1Music provides at least one track of their choosing for free downloads. This allows the recording industry and artists an avenue to bless others with the giftings Our Lord has so freely given them.
In addition, entire CDs or individual tracks will be available to be purchased and instantly downloaded. Our software ensures that the items for sale can not be downloaded without a credit card purchase.
Another drawback to online downloading is the absence of proper crediting of those who created and produced the track. Risen1Music.com will offer the customers the option to print a common copy paper that is designed to be folded into a CD jacket, complete with desired credits. Click here for example
Unlike the p2p sites, Risen1Music.com will not merely list the name of the song and artist. It will provide a complete page devoted soley to that artist's work. Complete with a calander of events, picture, optional forum pages, etc. Click here for example
