Winner for Feb. 2009 ADPR Band/Artist of the Month

The winner of the ADPR Artist/Band of the Month contest for February of 2009 is the band Jacobs Dream.

Please hit up: Http://www.myspace.com/angeldustpr to hear one of their latest tunes.

We Have Won

Ninety-five per cent of music downloaded online is illegal, a report by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) has said.

The global music trade body said this is its biggest challenge as artists and record companies miss out on payments.

There has, however, been a 25% rise since last year with downloads now accounting for a fifth of all recorded music sales.

The IFPI said worldwide music market revenues shrank by 7% last year.

Steady growth

This was blamed on falling CD sales, while the increase in digital sales failed to make up for this.

The IFPI, which represents 1,400 companies in 72 countries, estimated more than 40 billion music files were illegally shared in 2008.

There were 1.4 billion single tracks legally downloaded in 2008, with the top-selling digital single, Lil Wayne's Lollipop, selling 9.1 million copies. There is a momentous debate going on about the environment on which our business, and all the people working in it, depends

John Kennedy, IFPI

BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones said that despite the launch of many legal download services, customers still seemed to prefer to get their music free online.

The report revealed that the digital music business has grown steadily during the past six years.

In 2008, it grew by an estimated 25% and is now worth $3.7bn (£2.5bn)

Music fans in the UK downloaded 110 million single tracks in 2008 and bought 10.3 million digital albums - accounting for 7.7% of the market.

John Kennedy, chairman and chief executive of IFPI, said the industry had changed its approach to doing business.

He said: "There is a momentous debate going on about the environment on which our business, and all the people working in it, depends.

"Governments are beginning to accept that, in the debate over 'free content' and engaging ISPs in protecting intellectual property rights, doing nothing is not an option if there is to be a future for commercial digital content."

Winner for Jan. 2009 ADPR Band/Artist of the Month

We would like to congratulate Society 1 for starting off the year!!

Enjoy The End Of 2008

I hope everyone has enjoyed this year and even though there have been quite a bit of deaths, we can hope that 2009 brings us a lot more than this year did.

Be well.

Immortalize Your Band/Artist or Record Exec.+ Help Saint Judes

Today is a new day and I am feeling pretty good. I [and a cohort] have come up with an idea that I am sure you guys will enjoy.

A Calendar.

I want to see submissions to my EMAIL angeldustpr@yahoo.com and I want in it the BEST photo of you as an Artist or the whole Band or even a Record Exec.

ADPR is making a calendar for the 2010 year [2009 if we can get everything done in time] of all of YOU guys. Again to be on the Calendar, they have to be good looking quality pictures and then ADPR will announce the 13 winners as it will be a 13 month calendar.

Some on guys, this is the opportunity to have yourselves plastered in permanency for everyone out there to see when they buy a calendar and see YOU on it.

Lance King, the owner of Nightmare Records is one person I am looking for on this one. He is the epitome of Rock and Roll.

What are you waiting for, go on and submit your pics!!!

ALSO to let you know, all the money made from calendar sales are going to be heading to the Saint Judes Childrens Cancer Center!
