Anyone out there familiar with Bandcamp, the music site? It’s a place where musicians put CDs and other recordings online, available for sale and download. I just discovered they have enhanced their features for fans, so I created my own fan page there. One prominent feature of Bandcamp’s fan pages is that it shows what you have purchased through the site, and what you want to get someday. So far I have one CD purchased, Mike Anton’s collection The Past Is Like a Heart Attack, and two on a wishlist. I guess fans can connect with each other. Everything is all social media these days, y’know. I’ve always liked Bandcamp, but until recently it was really hard to find anything unless you knew a performer was already there. Now it’s easier to browse there, which is cool.
I may put my own recordings up there eventually. That doesn’t mean I’m suddenly ramping up to become the Next Big Thing. It seems like it would be a relatively easy way to put “product” out there. But I’m not rushing into that yet.
