Independent music is about the fans, so it only makes sense that the fans should set the playlist. GarageBand is built around that democratic idea. On the site, just pick the genre you want to listen to, discover new music, rate it and watch the bands move up the charts. Listeners can also find out when their favorite bands are coming to town, send the band an e-mail, join communities of like-minded music lovers and even win prizes just for rating music. Musicians, GarageBand is for you too—pay a fee, or simply rate 30 songs yourself, and you can submit your music to be reviewed, possibly landing you a record deal and a bigger recording studio than that garage.
