The news these days about the music industry is grim. Reports of falling CD sales, record label set backs and widespread layoff paint an ugly picture. The truth is that the Music industry has never been stronger even if the record industry is taking a beating.
Innovative artists have been reaching out to fans in new ways. Many of them are putting their live concert recordings on USB wristbands and Lanyard Flash Drives. A live show can be recorded and instantly copied to Custom USB Wristbands on the spot and sold to the audience. The USB bracelet can hold much more than just audio files, an immersive user interface can be placed on the drive to direct users to specific websites or a Facebook page.
The true pioneers of USB Stick Music are the Barenaked Ladies. Beginning with their 2005 Christmas release through selling a recording every night of their last tour they have truly developed a whole new way to deliver music to fans.
