As an independent artist, I have often been asked“Where can I purchase your CDS”? I keep product in my possession for this purpose, but would love the opportunity to sell product in a niceupscale retail location. Most independent artists only options are to sell “out of the trunk” and or Mom and Pop Music stores because they have nodistribution deal. O.I.M. will be the ﬁrst major independent music store for this type of artist, giving more control over their music.
