is an online community of like-minded musicians (including a few well known artists such as Matisyahu and Alanis Morissette) who have come together to share their music in an environment unencumbered by…

mainstream music distributors. It is a community, a wonderful catalogue of music, an experiment, an incredible value for the consumer.

At its core, IndiEclectic is a recommendation engine. Artists who are “in the public eye” recommend lesser known, artists who may not have the same broad exposure. There are no algorithms. No programs. It is all decidedly human and for a price that’s…well…practically stealing. Own every song on IndiEclectic for just $20.

For twenty bucks, you get the "Backstage Pass"— one year to discover, download and keep (forever) any and every song on the IndiEclectic website. That’s over 2,500 mp3s to choose from …or choose them all!  For every Backstage Pass that is sold, the revenue is split among all the artists on IndiEclectic equally. So even the lesser known artists have as much of a chance to make a living as the well known artists.

IndiEclectic says they are not competing with iTunes or Rhapsody, but competing with music theft and an increasingly soulless corporate music promotion machine. IndiEclectic will never be an online warehouse where a million bands sit, undiscovered, on virtual back shelves. Rather, it’s mission is to be a company passionate about bringing an exclusive collection of gifted artists into the spotlight. All for a price that is hard to beat.
