Joe Holt's Notes mp3 Subscription Plan.
When a new CD is released, it is the final outcome of a long path, sometimes over many years. Many paths are traveled; visited and revisited. When the financial opportunity is realized for me to release a new project, I literally have to pick one. Since I began releasing CDs in 2000, I am up to nine (and if you are not familiar with them, you can find them here). More CD releases are coming, but now, here’s an new, easy and really affordable way to grow your collection of my piano recordings beginning right now: to become a Joe Holt’s Notes mp3 subscriber. Here's how it works:
Every Monday, a new mp3 track will be delivered to your e-mail inbox. The music will vary from week to week, and span the scope of my private collection to include:
Live (concert) performances
Radio show performances.
Pre (album) release tracks
Exclusive content (for subscribers only)
I have many recording projects in progress, literally dozens, so don't worry about the well running dry. If I don't record another note for several years, your inbox still won't miss a beat. And about the exclusive content: Not everything is going to make it's way to a physical product that can be purchased. Some tracks that never see pressing will still make their way to download sites (check out my CD Baby page), but others will not. As a subscriber you not only will have exclusive access to some tracks, you will receive everything else first, before anyone else can purchase it. In some cases a track will be made available for download (on CD Baby and related sites) soon after you receive it, but in every case, you have it first.
So if I have this massive collection, why not release them all at once? First, the financial piece is not the only part of the administration process. A lot of listening, editing, organizing and soul searching goes in to this. Once something is out there, I can't take it back. So you know you will not be accumulating a collection of outtakes and reject tracks. Everything you receive is potentially something that will eventually make it's way to a CD release. And some of it will. So you will have it first, and in some cases you will own what no one else can buy. Secondly, a dam serves a purpose. A controlled release will blend right in with the ebb and flow of everything else. Opening the floodgates (or destroying the dam) usually creates chaos.
A Joe Holt’s Notes mp3 subscription is as affordable as it is easy.
Only $5/month (3 month minimum) - 3 months/$15
Special offer - 6 months/$25 (buy 5 get 1 free).
Order online at www.joeholtsnotes.com
(though the offer begins today, the website order form may take a few days to reflect changes. Just e-mail me, and we can get started.).
It's that easy.
