Being pretty pissed off at him at the time for turning my world upside down I opted for the piano.What started as a means to express myself, alone,(ahh that teenage... Read More

Next Friday, May 6th, Floridamusic will be playing the Cover-Undercover 6 submissions from our members on his live radio show! Be sure to tune in at 8:00PM EDT, as he plays the original song, then the cover. Let's see what they came up with. Come join us in chat during the show!See you at CU6!
Nothing makes a home recording, any recording for that matter, sound better than great drum sounds. Pro engineers spend more time getting their drum sounds than any other instrument on their recordings and it shows. I've personally seen situations where engineers have spent days, several days...
1) GENERAL OVERWHELM This is such a common perception of people’s day-to-day lives. We’re just too busy, there’s too much to do, too much to organise. But this is a myth. It might help to see this problem as a silly character: “General Overwhelm”, an army...
As most of you know, IMW's Cover-Undercover 6 is underway. We have a few members who are already working on their songs, but we want to make sure everyone has plenty of time to jump in! So, we are extending the deadline to April 30th! For the benefit of our newer members, and those who may have missed it, here's the scoop.
IMW Cover-Undercover is a cover song event, with a unique twist. Cover songs are not allowed on IMW, unless you own the rights or have purchased a license. But for these events participants create covers of songs posted here at IMW by other members. It's not a contest, just a fun event for all who wish to participate.
PLEASE READ THE DETAILS BELOW CAREFULLY BEFORE PARTICIPATING...
There are three simple steps to participate in the event;
1) Pick a song written, recorded, and posted at Indie Music Works by one of our members that you would like to cover.
2) Contact that member, and ask their permission to cover the song for the event. If they approve, e-mail a copy of the approval to undercover at indiemusicworks.com. We must receive a copy of the original artist’s approval, or your submission will not be accepted. It is entirely up to the original artist whether or not to allow a cover to be created.
3) Put your creativity to work!
Here are the details:
Record your own version of the song, and send an mp3 of the finished product to undercover at indiemusicworks.com. Only you and the person you are covering knows what song you are working on. That's the undercover part. Well, OK. The admins will know too, but we're not talking.
The original artist may assist with technical details like chords and lyrics if requested, but to make the cover your own, he or she should not contribute in any way to the arranging, performance, recording, or mixing. You are welcome to enlist collaborators if you wish, to make it a group effort.
Remember, we have extended the deadline for submissions to April 30, 2016. Be sure to have your songs in by then. They will all be revealed for the first time on Floridamusic’s radio show on Friday, May 6th, and posted on the "IMW Cover-Undercover" artist page.
To get the idea, visit the IMW Cover-Undercover page, and have a listen to the entries from the first five Cover-Undercover events. Be sure to check out the links to the original recordings, located in the song 'Info'.
So, pick a song, contact the artist, and dive in. We'll see you at CU6!
Donating Members (March)
We’d like to give a big “Thank You” to those members who have donated to Indie Music Works in June. We are alive and well, due in large part to your generosity.

You make IMW possible!
Just a reminder for our members that copyrighted material is not allowed on IMW, unless you own the copyright for the work, or you have licensed the work. If you have purchased a license, proof of licensing should be included in the "Info" space when the work is posted.
If it was up to us, we would allow covers. But agents for the recording industry do contact us from time to time to inquire, and remind us of the law. We risk losing the site if action was to be taken against us. This policy is included in our Terms of Service statement available here - IMW Terms of Service. Thank you for your understanding.
