Who is Otto Sharp? She is a singer songwriter who rebelliously picked up the guitar and a synthesizer. And by the young age of fourteen, she began writing music of her own. Over the next four years, she wrote notebooks full of ideas and melodies, and during her first year of college she would find herself teaming up with Producer/Songwriter Dustin Burnett and the results are fantastic. The track Creature of Habit is a must listen. For more information email octoberdustin@gmail.com

The Radiohead marketing stunt has been debated and scrutinized for almost 2 years now and there is no end in sight.

Just recently, The Cure’s frontman Robert Smith said this:

“You can’t allow other people to put a price on what you do, otherwise you don’t consider what you do to have any value at all and that’s nonsense”

“If I put a value on my music and no one’s prepared to pay that, then more fool me, but the idea that the value is created by the consumer is an idiot plan, it can’t work.” (Music Radar)

Regardless, Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’ achieved significant success despite the controversial marketing plan.
