Portland, OR -- NewFolkRadio.com, an online interactive radio station that streams folk, roots, and bluegrass music 24/7 without subscription fees, has announced a bargain start-up package for folk and bluegrass bands. "It's an expensive process to record a CD, get a cover designed, get the CD to radio stations, get a video shot, and so on," according to John Hart, founder of NewFolkRadio.com.
"It can run between $10,000 and $20,000," he said. "That's just too much for a start-up band or soloist, so NewFolkRadio has launched a sister site titled StudioMotion.biz that features a low-priced start-up package starting at $999, designed exclusively for folk and bluegrass artists."
The StudioMotion start-up package contains most everything a band or soloist would need to get a career going, from recording a 5-song EP, to cover design, photography, website design and implementation, website hosting, video production, etc. Details are available at StudioMotion.biz.
"This isn't a gimmick," Mr. Hart said. "It's a genuine offer to help folk and bluegrass artists get started in their pursuit of fans. Bands who have a sophmore CD issued could also take advantage of this offer," Hart said. "We want to help anyway we can."
Mr. Hart has 20 years experience in all phases of music and video production, as well as web site design, including software and server programming. He will personally execute every aspect of the start-up package.
StudioMotion is located in Portland, Oregon, but bands or solo artists outside of Oregon could make arrangements to travel to Portland and take advantage of this opportunity.
