ICB Music Group Helps Independent Artists Build Worldwide Presence

San Diego, CA, December 7th, 2010 – Internet savvy musician Ian C. Bouras, is launching The ICB Music Group to help independent artists build a worldwide presence exposing their music to millions of new listeners.

For the past few years, Ian worked for Redwood Entertainment in New York City, heading up their internet marketing division. While working for Redwood, Ian worked with many independent musicians and independent labels, helping them to build an online presence by building profiles on many social networking sites, helping expose their music to millions of new listeners.

Ian has experience with all the current marketing websites, such as, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Reverbnation and also builds profiles for artists on over 50 social networking websites to help build credibility for the artist when someone searches for them. As an example of how working the internet pays off Ian explains how he got an artist a write up in a major publication because they searched for the artist on the internet to see if he was "on the level", and a lot of pages came up, so the artist had instant credibility.

Before learning the art of using the internet to help artists build sustainable careers, Ian’s experience in the music business was as a touring and recording musician, audio engineer, and music teacher. He’s spent most of his life in the music business and has gained a unique insight into the independent music world and understands what artists need these days online to build a sustainable career, using everything from social networking to podcasting.

The ICB Music Group offers many services including social networking, press submissions for reviews, submissions to podcasts, and managerial tasks.

SDMP Records offers a free download of
"By Company They Mean Me"

San Diego, CA, July 14, 2010 -- SDMP Records offers a free download of "By Company They Mean Me" at: "By Company They Mean Me" is the second solo release by Guitarist/Producer Ian C. Bouras, best known for his work with NYC Rock/Reggae band AñaVañA.

"By Company They Mean Me" is instrumental music with classical guitars, sweeping orchestras, hip-hop drums, and has Ian producing, playing guitar, programming drums, and mixing instrument samples from different musical genres.

“By Company They Mean Me” is SDMP Records first “digital-only”, and SDMP hopes to be one of several small record labels to lead the way in helping independent artists and labels even the playing field with the major record companies by releasing some of their music digitally.

Ian’s previous solo work garnered him critical acclaim: “A surprisingly unique and fresh sound. Artists like this are responsible for the evolution of musical genres." --- Blips and Beeps, and although only containing two tracks, Ian continues to push musical boundaries with “By Company They Mean Me” which "soars with the orchestral beauty that might accompany a wordless, slow-motioned scene from a love story. Then, in turn, it plunges the listener to the stark depths of longing and loneliness with a guitar that pulls at the heartstrings. Ian is definitely an artist with a creative ear for unexpected sound directions that lead to wonderful discoveries." --- Phosphorescence Magazine

The free download of "By Company, They Mean Me" is available at:
