Merge.fm Brings Musicians And Fans Together

Modern technologies, such as the Internet, have redefined the music industry.  Musicians now have so many new ways of engaging their fans.  Merge.fm is a platform that enables them to share their new songs with fans and collaborators instantly.  

This service is quite interesting.  You can upload a new version of a song, and the previous versions will be preserved.  This allows anyone to backtrack the way the song sounded at any point in its development.  This is great because there have been albums released that only contained demos and WIP mixes.  There is actually a market for that.

Keep in mind that users cannot download songs; they just stream them.

Artists are compensated according to the number of people who subscribe to them.  I wonder how much artists could make from a service like this.  Very little, I’d say.  But why not give it a try and see what happens?
