I've been lengthening a lot of my music (including the stuff from Sonny) with the goal to release it all on CD at some time. I've been thinking, though, that maybe releasing my music on iTunes would be a better idea. Here's why:
* Mastering, Producing, and Distributing a CD requires a huge amount of time, and require a large investment upfront before I started to see any return. I'd have to share a large portion of the revenue with CD distributing companies that I figure I'd have to sell at least 250 CD's before I'd even break even (that's each CD selling for $15 plus s&h)!
* A lot of people have iTunes accounts, and find it much more convienient to buy music off of iTunes rather than buy through an online retailer.
* It's cheaper for you, and I see more of the money. Even If the CD had 12 full length tracks (I'm guessing the number would be closer to 10), you'd end up paying at least $1.75 per track once you factor in shipping, whereas on iTunes you'd likely only pay $0.99.
* You can choose exactly what you want to buy, and not have to pay for anything you don't want to hear!
Ultimately, I think an iTunes album would make far more sense, but what do you think? Would you buy my music on iTunes?
On my website (www.davidorr.net) there's a poll where you can answer the question. I'd love it if you took a second to let me know!
