Musical Success Story Shows The "Bassics" Of Earning Money Online

San Diego--January 23, 2001--Martin Lindhe's online musical success started with a simple computer storage problem. When graphic designer and hobby musician Lindhe moved to the U.S. from his native Sweden in 1999, he needed a temporary place to store all the music he had written over the past several years. His wife told him about MP3.com (www.mp3.com), a web site that allows digital artists to post music online at no cost. Over 2 million listens and tens of thousands of dollars later, Lindhe, who records electronic music under the name Bassic (www.mp3.com/bassic), has become a true Internet success story.

Since first posting music on the site in late 1999, Lindhe has earned over $87,000 through MP3.com's Payback for Playback program, which distributes money to eligible artists based on the popularity of their music. Additionally, Bassic was nominated for the "Best Unsigned Artist Online" at the Yahoo! Internet Life Online Music Awards 2000 and has sold over 3,000 D.A.M. (Digital Automatic Music) CDs through his artist page. Lindhe even credits the birth of his baby daughter to his success on MP3.com.

"MP3.com has changed my life completely," Lindhe said. "Not only has it given Bassic a global audience of fans, it has also made it financially possible to rebuild my studio from scratch and arrange for a great future for my little newborn daughter. When I tell people how MP3.com works, they have a hard time believing it, and I don't blame them. I mean, here I am publishing my music for free to thousands of people around the world every day without even leaving the house. And I get paid for it, too."

In 2001, Lindhe's online success led him to create an additional artist page on MP3.com to showcase his "pure dance" compositions (www.mp3.com/trance-am).

"When I left my home country Sweden for the U.S., I had to sell almost everything I owned to afford the move," Lindhe continued. "The last thing I did was upload my songs to MP3.com so I could clear out my computer's hard drive. Little did I know that this would be the very thing that changed my life."

Lindhe joins more than 117,000 artists who post music on MP3.com. To register to post music on the site for free, visit www.mp3.com/newartist.
