Who is Verity?

2006-09-20 17:14
What can you do if you think record companies just take take take, and give nothing back? Well you have a few options... you can sit and whine and cry into your black label in a darkened bar by candlelight while you wait for the free tequilas to arrive.

Or you can do what Verity did: make a website, and sell some albums... before you record them, that is. To help with the publicity and to show that you're not just like all the other guys in the music business, you can donate some money to good causes, like 10.6% of every CD goes to two - People Opposing Woman Abuse , and the Live Your Dreams Foundation, who help other developing artists. Verity has already sold just under 800 copies of her album - Yet to Be - so it WILL be recorded no matter what. But she'd like to raise more money for her chosen causes, and sell all 5000 copies.
