    What's it about?

    As many will know I'm not into music (I've never bought a music CD in my life). Yet I know for many un-signed and up-and-coming musicians it can be a struggle to get heard and for many an important way of getting the word out there is to showcase it on their websites. This means there's a huge, often un-tapped source of free music available online for music lovers to listen to, yet finding it is the key.

    What to do

    I thought I'd tap MoneySavers' knowledge to find the free new music available out there. If you know someone whose style you like, whether it's pop, rock, jazz or classical then let others know about them here.

    Please try to use the following format:
    • Band/Artist's Name:
    • Music Style:
    • What style of music/who is it similar to?:
    • Website:
    The MSE Factor

    We'd also like to institute our own rating system. If you like a particular artist's music then please thank the poster; to give others an idea of how popular they are.

    PS, a note to forum regulars. While normally we'd ask people not to post their own websites, in this instance if you or a friend has some tracks you think are worth listening to then that's fine.
