Seattle Times editorialist Ryan Blethen has a great blog post today about the recent Rock the Net performance from singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson, which took place in Seattle last Tuesday.
How is a musician on an independent label like Nathanson able to sell out a show so quickly to an obviously smitten crowd? Through the Internet and a lot of touring. The Internet is vital tool of commerce and communication for a musician who is on the road for about 10 months.
Blethen also gives a hearty shout out to FMC. Read the full post here.
Prior to to Tuesday’s concert, Nathanson and Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) also participated in a teleconference about net neutrality with FMC Policy Director Michael Bracy and various Washington State music and media representatives.
