of people who are involved with distribution, promotion, publicity,
and Internet commerce.
How? They are participating in the formation of Venus Music,
a new direction in the music industry.

Already, Venus Music has sales representatives in the field,
including John Brewington, who points out that "Venus Music goes
far beyond whatever expectations you have for a record label
or marketing organization."
The concept is attracting an impressive array of strategic partners,
including Matt Forger, who was the recording engineer on a half-dozen
Michael Jackson albums, singer Marina V, graphic designer Pamelina
H, photographer Jim Steinfeldt, cabaret artist Veronique Cyphyre,
electronic musician Sonic Brew, and a host of others.
"Perhaps there's a place for you in the new world of Venus Music,"
Sayeck says. "We welcome artists in every genre and style."
