Another Successful Non-Label Artist

Yet another artist has decided to keep their morals, copyrights and creative output to themselves rather than line the soiled pockets of a lazy recording industry  :yes:

Jordis Unga, a singer who has appeared on two reality TV shows (Rock Star: INXS and The Voice), has decided that she doesn't need to sign a label deal. While she didn't win on either show, she did build up quite a following, and she decided that for her debut album, she might as well just hit up Kickstarter, and ask for $33,000. Which she got. In less than a day. In the first day alone her project on Kickstarter raised over $50,000.

Now, perhaps some will complain that she is now beholden to her fans, but that seems a lot better than being beholden to a multinational conglomerate who claims all ownership and control of your work.


I say good luck and well done to this sensible lady, thankfully not all singers are as mindless as "silly allen" the drug and drink taking music industry sponsored poster girl.

The English band, called 'Archive' have done this sort of thing - most recently to raise money for the production of their first live dvd.  The fans donated online - and when there were enough funds the concert was able to go ahead.  Each donator got a copy of the dvd mailed to them, in return.
