What Is The Blues Overdose Sampler?

Blues Blast Magazine has a new monthly feature called the "Blues Overdose" issue that features free downloadable tracks from various artists to help promote their releases.

This is our answer to the print magazine’s free CD samplers given away when you buy a subscription. Difference is we are going to give them away for 30 days as free downloads and unlike other "free" samplers and artist showcases, it is FREE for the artists too!

A month after publication date we take the track down so no one can download it after that and the author retains all rights to the track. This will help introduce more fans to the new CD to generate more sales.

So if you have an original track off your CD that you own the publishing rights on, you can have it considered to be included in our monthly Overdose issue. The song must be original work and you must own all publishing rights!

The Blues Overdose issue will be the last issue of each month.
