Part of me wants to quit this here technology thing and start a music group! Think of how the “Listen Free” feature could revolutionized how local and independent musicians and groups can leverage loyal fan base, encourage G+ shares, and really start to make a name for themselves.

There seems to be a ton of flexibility in how artists manage their Google Music library. They can fill in all of the artist, song, and album info their little hearts desire in addition to changing that information whenever they choose. There is no additional cost to upload tracks/albums to Google Music so whether it’s an album that took two years to create or a live gig from last week, you’re free game at getting your fans the music they want… with no limitations on quantity.

Let’s not forget that being on the Google Music store also means you’re in the hands of the 200+ Million Android users and counting, in addition to everyone leveraging the web for Google Music. If you’re an artist that tries out Google Music… let us know how you like it!
