When thinking about the future of music and artist content, one must now consider the myriad of possible distribution platforms now available to musicians.

Muziboo is an online music platform which is being used by over a hundred thousand users as the primary platform to upload their music and connect with other musicians. The uniqueness that drives Muziboo is the emphasis laid on building a ‘community’ for musicians as against being just another file sharing platform.

So far, the results are not surprising to me, though the sample size is still relatively small.
