Imagine if you could have attended the early meetings when Apple iTunes was being developed. Or CD Baby. Or any of the dynamic indie music labels like Delvian or Fearless that are the next best hope of the music business.

Well, guess what: today, you have an opportunity that might just roll all those breaks into one. Starting right now, artists, producers, managers, and songwriters are banding together. They're taking their talent and energy and fusing it with the expertise 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.

"It's called Venus Music," states Art Sayecki, founder of the Burbank, California-based organization, "and our goals are simple: total domination of every aspect of the music industry. No, I'm kidding. But we do want to offer a new path for the independent musician, one that provides all the benefits that you would have found at a major record label back when they were still successful."

Through partnership arrangements with a wide range of pre-approved suppliers, Venus Music will provide independent artists with such resources as recording, mastering, talent development, album pressing, digital and physical distribution, A&R representation, radio promotion, merchandising, marketing, and placement in film and television.

Already, the Venus Music offices feature a Pro Tools and analog recording studio with medium-sized recording suite, and a complete mastering studio.

"We also are involved with what we call fusion marketing," says Mike Shadowsky, Director of Marketing. "At Venus Music, artists who are comfortable with some of their tracks being utilized in commercial placement can become involved with a wide variety of opportunities." The commercial division, called Venus Triad, has produced spots in their studio and placed music tracks by Venus-affiliated artists.

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."
