NoiseTrade connects artist and fans through the exchange of free music for contact info. Artists upload a single, EP, full-length album, or live show. Immediately fans can download the music by just giving their email address and zip code. Fans also have a chance to spread the word about the free music to Facebook and Twitter, as well as give the artist a tip – anywhere between $1 and $100. Artists keep 80% of these tips which are delivered to their PayPal account on a monthly basis. At any time, artists can download the contact info of the fans who downloaded their music in .CSV format, which can be uploaded to any mailing list program such as Emma, MailChimp, FanBridge, or Topspin. NoiseTrade features the best music on the site with a weekly email newsletter, blog content, and artist banners throughout the site.

I've lived on Kent Street in Greenpoint for a couple years.
I live in Greenpoint and co-founded NoiseTrade.com, a music community that helps artists connect with fans through free music. Would love to be part of this group on a regular basis.
