Indie Musician Seeks One Million Downloads With Ambitious New Website
Indie rocker Rich Lynch (www.richlynchband.com) is taking his music to the masses in 2018. His New Year's greeting to his fans around the world announced a "New Deal" between the artist and the supporters of his Nashville-based intellectual hard rock project.
"Essentially, the deal was you buy my songs, I'll continue to make music," Lynch says. "When I gave that plan some thought I realized it needed a little more."
The added extra ingredient was to build an easy to use sales platform where fans could easily purchase his songs from all the top online retailers - hence, OneMillionDownloads.com was born.
"In some ways it pays homage to Alex Tew and his Million Dollar Home Page of 2005," the musician continued. "But, not really. We plan on achieving a similar success sales wise but my goal is to prove that there still is an active audience that will buy music online - especially when the songs are quality and the story is good."
The story is getting picked up around the world and that is one reason why Lynch actually stands to achieve his goal of selling one million downloads of his songs in 2018. As a music writer, photographer, and the founder of several music related endeavors, Lynch is a music industry insider who has friends and colleagues in publishing and radio. He himself is a well-known celebrity interviewer recognized for his long-running radio show where Donovan, Yoko Ono, Don Felder, Nils Lofgren and many others have been his featured guests over the years.
"It's a huge plus to have this incredible network of fans, friends and associates who are showing enthusiastic support for this project," the grateful Lynch enthused. "As a musician, I'm relatively unknown in a very competitive modern day landscape. Currently, we stand without airplay, without a record label, without all the usual things needed to navigate the ever-changing marketplace. Yet, with this new website we'll find out if there is a way that I can actually make making music my full time job."
Lynch created OneMillionDownloads.com in early 2018 as an easy to use song selling platform for his complete catalogue of digital music. Updates and breaking news will be published on the website throughout the year as it happens.
OneMillionDownloads.com is a new song selling platform helping emerging musicians reach record sales levels for their independent music. For it's inaugural year one exclusive artist will be featured with the goal of achieving one million downloads.
