New Service Seeks to Connect Unsigned Artists with Record Labels for Next to Nothing

Getting the attention of a record label is as old as recorded music itself.  How do you catch the ears of someone who will help you further your career?

In the old days, it was demo tapes and sharp-eared A&R scouts.  Today, you have just as much a chance of being discovered via MySpace (hello, Justin Bieber) or YouTube (Psy). But there’s got to be a better and less chancey way, right?

Chartburst thinks it has the answer.  This new online startup wants to build a business where they connect unsigned talent with record labels.  And with a fee of just $5 per month for artists who register, whynot give it a shot?  A full description here.
