If you have attended a music festival in the United States over the last year or two, odds are you have experienced Pretty Lights or heard about his music and live show. His unique soulful electronic music has spread like wildfire through the blogosphere and has resulted in a massive U.S. fanbase, which is evidenced by the large number of sold out tour dates.
Today, Pretty Lights has teamed up with the technology behemoth BitTorrent to release a media bundle that contains PL’s Glowing In The Darkest Night EP, Making Up A Changing Mind EP, Spilling Over Every Side EP, along with a video of his Bonnaroo performance, and a bonus single “I Know The Truth.” Even though Pretty Lights has been giving away his music free of charge for years through his website, the project with BitTorrent will allow him to share his creativity with ”over 100 million music enthusiasts in 165 countries.” [via]
“I began offering my music as a free download with the release of my first album because I’ve always supported the sharing of digital media, including my own creations.” said Smith from his current Australian tour. “I’ve experienced the benefits firsthand of letting anyone and everyone download my music at no charge, which is, primarily, a momentous growth in the attendance of my live shows. I believe that the recipe for my success has been three fold. One, producing fresh and original soulful music. Two, continuing to always invest back in the production of my live show/experience. And three, pushing the envelope in the way that I distribute my music online to new listeners. The third is why I’m so excited to be partnering with BitTorrent.” [via]
