HeroesHear it from the Artistopians:
"Artistopia is a great tool for emerging artists. Since joining I have connected and collaborated with some artists that I never would have known existed were it not for Artistopia. There are many music sites out there but very few provide you with the amount of resources that Artistopia does. Artistopia was definitely a major stepping stone in helping to get my music heard."
– Ayanda Sunshine of Brooklyn, New York, Artistopia member since January 2005
"Artistopia is my sketch pad, my village, my art show, my studio, my culture, my back up, my iPod, my 8-track, my conduit, my fan base, my hang out, my slaughterhouse, my critic, my noteblog, my songblog, my weblog, my one cog, my cord, my sounding board, my alter, my ego, my alter, my ego, my alter, my ego."
- Bohannon of St. Paul, Minnesota, Artistopia member since March 2005
"Artistopia is much more than just another artist profile site, it’s the foundation for all my work. The unique structure of Artistopia mirrors reality so effectively it’s almost a living organism. The flexibility within Artistopia’s vast arsenal of tools enables each individual the ability to learn, express, and integrate their own flavor-style into that fast lane known as the entertainment industry. Too many artists have a false idealistic perception of what needs to be accomplished in order to be successful, severely underestimate the market, and misinterpret what industry professionals are “really” looking for. That’s where Arty comes in! Artists are jammed full of vision, but without DIRECTION it’s all just an illusion. Artistopia doesn’t just give the artist information, it gives them functional tools for hands-on experience, and that’s something so valuable it can’t be taught! Artistopia’s not just for the artists though, it upholds these same values for Industry Professionals! Offering industry business professionals an interface to explore talent and promote interest with limitless possibilities! I just can’t say enough about Artistopia, you have to experience it for yourself!"
- C'Quence of Warsaw, Indiana, Artistopia member since January 2004
“One of the best ways my music has been heard is when I signed up on Artistopia for free. Through Artistopia I’ve met the most talented artists across the globe. I had my music played over and over on their innovative internet radio station. I’ve had my music reviewed, downloaded, shared, talked about throughout the internet. The person that runs Artistopia is always on top of things. Questions are always answered quickly. Artistopia truly cares about THE ARTIST! When I ask fans the question ‘How did you find me?’...The answer is undoubtedly, unquestionably, undeniably , indubitably ‘through Artistopia’. An extraordinary site!”
- Cindy Nelson of Cameron Park, California, Artistopia member since February 2006
“Artistopia is an invaluable platform for artists/musicians, I have shared ideas with other artists (it’s a friendly place) and even collaborated with some of them. I have been approached by quite a number of times by A&R and Record labels & producers who are able to access the site easily and listen to ALL its members. The tools are excellent with unlimited access to your profile where you can add all your experiences, training, events, awards, etc which is great for the press kit builder facility. It’s a wonderful place and 'user friendly' I have already recommended 'Artistopia' to many people. A big THANKYOU to - Artistopia.”
- Claudia of London, UK, Artistopia member since - March 2005
"Artistopia provides a utopic 'learning curve' for artists interested in promoting their work by giving artists the tools and information about the workings and competitive nature of the music business. It's the leading artist development site on the web today."
- Indiana Gregg of Glasgow, United Kingdom, Artistopia member since March 2005
“Networking, musical exposure, a place to give and receive meaningful criticism, artistic development, and just the best place to learn and grow are all ways that I would describe my experience with Artistopia. There's definitely no politics here. Anyone who works to develop their artistic ability using all of Artistopia's available resources will be rewarded! For example, since I have used some of the marketing tips provided by Artistopia, my music has consistently stayed on the charts, I notice that I have higher downloads, people/other musicians are beginning to express appreciation for what I do as an artist, and I am starting to network with the most talented minds ever! Do not hesitate to use this wonderful resource. Take full advantage as Artistopia offers one of the most comprehensive web development sites for musicians today.”
- Katrise of Orlando, Florida, Artistopia member since March 2004
"Just wanted to say, 'thanx!' Your site gives an independent artist like myself a sense of able fulfillment; in giving me an overall-view of industry insight and projection. I value your site; time; and everything you are doing for us. May God bless you in all that you do!"
- Mark Anthony, Acoustic Lix Pix & Kix of Redlands, CA, Artistopia member since May 2006
“I really enjoy the site. I am almost two years into it and it is always nice to be able to see my profile. I can see the track record I am leaving behind. It wasn't like that before I became a member. My idea of music was everywhere. Here, there, somewhere. It was always spread out and unorganized, but now that I have a footnote / glimpse of what I've accomplished and what I will accomplish I can see better and clearly the path that I'm taking. I know where I'm going. Thanks guys.”
- Rainsweep of Fremont, California, Artistopia member since December 2004
“As an emerging young musician eager to break into the music business, I discovered the wealth of talent and resources in the independent music industry. As I searched for a network in which I could promote my music, I discovered Artistopia. From the first moment, I knew that there was something unique about this site. I had found many websites promoting specific genres of music or types of ensembles, but Artistopia was the only one that fully embraced all musical styles and personalities. It is without a doubt the most useful and encouraging independent music resource in the world, pushing artists to become better at what they do, and at the same time gain an appreciation and a deeper understanding of other artist’s music and accomplishments. Artistopia has brought me unprecedented attention and the chance to share my music with thousands of people around the globe. They truly demonstrate a strong interest in the artist as a person, and provide a platform for musical growth that has brought me a wide variety of professional contacts and opportunities."
- Robert Summers Potterton III of Houghton, New York, Artistopia member since July 2004
“After some major disappointments with other sites, I tried Artistopia. Artistopia is honest with us from the get-go, they give you tools to make it and you choose to use'em or not. They say all the time you get what you put in and I love to send my press kit by email – it’s so efficient! I was off the site for awhile and went down in the charts which proves my absence. By using the tools I got from Artistopia, I will climb again and show you guys how to hustle your music!”
- Vinny Rebel of Montreal, Artistopia member since 2004
"One major benefit of Artistopia membership is that it engenders a self discipline that encourages an artist like myself to bring together all the pieces in the artistic puzzle and present a cohesive and commercially orientated product and image to the music industry. Music is one thing, the business side of music is entirely another ... and that's where Artistopia shines. It's not just a site to dump a few music samples or a rave bio, but an industry stage on which you can present the totality of your product/image, in a credible and professional manner."
- VJ King Jr. of Australia, member since November 2003
“I have been a member of Artistopia since August 2005. I am a member of many sites but I rate Artistopia with the best that is out there. I absolutely love the charts and the new addition of the Radio. It is great exposure for the unknown Indie artist as well as those that are known. I love the fact that this site evens the playing field. The internet is a wonderful tool that is setting the tone for the new exposure opportunities. This site is not only affordable but well designed and effective. I say kudos to the staff, designer and founder of this site.”
