There are many online music podcast rss feeds to

choose from online. For many of the feed producers, a

podcast feed is a way to distribute non mainstream

music that otherwise would not be able to reach an

audience. These musicians are able to build a following

and share their work from outside of a music culture

that tends to keep out more niche groups. Because the

music industry is oriented towards mass distribution

and marketing, musicians and groups that aren’t

believed to command such widespread fandom are kept

out of the market.

Distributing some of their music by podcast rss feeds,

however, lets them grow a small fanbase and attract

listeners who enjoy their work. These musicians may

support themselves by also selling portions of their

work, or may decide to provide all of their work for

free, as some do.

These musicians may, after growing a fanbase who

enjoys their music podcast rss feed, parlay that

popularity into music contracts within the industry. By

proving that they can support a passionate audience

even with their own meager efforts, a company can

sometimes be convinced of the music’s viability on a

larger stage. By proving that the musicians can support

a dedicated audience and can keep producing quality

work, the group or individual has a better chance of

successfully getting a contract while maintaining their

independent style.
