I listen to a lot of music and it occurred to me that I'm incentivized by the existence of Peertracks, to help the Artists I love to join a platform that will help them produce more of their music.  Yes I also have some notes, but I'm far more interested in the revolution in music production that Peertracks promises for the music itself.  Anyway, I've written this e-mail for review and I'd like to know if I have the approval of our communities (and especially Cob) to send it to all my favorite Artists if I can find their e-mail address.  I'll make a list of those that I send it to.  I'd like to keep it in my own words because that is more genuine, but please feel free to make a suggestion if you think it's more accurate or clearer and i'll consider making a change.  Also, if we all tried to write to our favorite artists (only once,) surely it's possible for something amazing to happen?!

Dear xxxxx

You don't know me personally but I am a huge fan of your music.  As such, I was hoping you might be interested in signing up to Peetracks which may be able to increase the reach of your work and help you acquire funding for your future projects.  We are in the midst of a crowdfunding revolution and Peertracks taps into that amongst other things.
 
Peertracks is an innovative web based music platform which is powered by Bitshares blockchain technology and does for music what Bitcoin has done for money.  It revolutionizes the discovery, distribution and remuneration for artists by incentivizing music fans to become swarms of talent scouts, enabling fans to fund and market artist's projects.  This platform delivers far more in the way of potential remuneration than traditional mechanisms which are fraught with middlemen and monopolies.
 
I think this is such a wonderful prospect for music in general, artists & fans, I've written this e-mail and intend to send it to all of my favourite artists in an effort to grow the platform.

If I have piqued your interest, please take a look at http://peertracks.com/

I hope to be able to purchase your Artistcoins soon!

Yours sincerely,

Ben.

Peertracks is for Music, what bitcoin is for money !

Put it somewhere between the lines so your readers have a quick feeling what you are talking about  ;)

 +5% we've been doing that in Houston for some time now. I was raised by a garage band, so it makes it easier.

Thanks for the template. Terrific initiative! Does anyone know whether an artist signing up for this would run afoul of the contracts with their labels or producers? I'm sure Eddie knows what he's doing, so it's probably fine, but I'm just thinking about all that exclusive representation stuff. And I mention it because if we hear anything like that as an objection, I'd like to know how to respond.

Maybe Jay-z beyonce and the other artists which startup their itunes competition software should take a hardlook at this and see if they want to become major stakeholders.

Also, another way to tell about it is multiple message from different users to their twitter.
With one message template so it will trend.

Just my 2cents

If I would be an artist and finally checked the www.peertracks.com site I would honestly not have a clue on what is going on**...
so I would not subscribe yet...


** I mean it is full of promises but without explaining how exactly it will work...

+ to subscribe ,you must click and check for an "agreement" that is nowhere present! Why should someone continue and make this step?

sorry but it looks very unprofessional right now ...

PS the links are not working as well under the "sign up form"  (they are all linking to the same page http://www.peertracks.com/artist-signup/index.php#)

Yeah, I think what you are doing is great but I don't think it's time for that yet. We need to wait till there is a better product to present to the artists. Things are really heating up in the battle to be the best streaming site. We don't want to put ourselves out there till the time is right.

 There is still nothing that comes close to what peertracks can offer the music industry. Tidal is a joke and Jay Z thinks there are millions being spent on a smear campaign against the service. It's just simply the fact that it doesn't bring anything new to the table. Exclusive songs are no match for token controlled access. The world still has no idea what blockchain technology can accomplish.

tl;dr
Peertracks is not ready for the masses. When the time is right than we shall contact all our favorite artists.
