THE MONITOR

May 03, 2007|By CHRISTINA LEE

What"s the point? -- The more than 3,000 bands and artists registered on sellaband.com have one mission: garner enough "Believers" who invest enough $10 "Parts" to raise $50,000. These artists get a studio recording, and "Believers" score a copy for free. Once the album is released to the public, the artists and their "Believers" split the profits.

What to look for --Whatever genre you may desire, this site can probably deliver. In this week's charts, Latin, lounge, folk, funk and progressive rock are all represented in its Top 10, ranked by number of parts sold to "Believers." Artists also post lyrics, pictures and video clips in their music profiles.
