09/20, 6:15am

You're a budding muso, how do you get heard?

Up until about two weeks ago, I had no idea about how to get a song up on iTunes. As of today, my song “The Fallout” has gone live on iTunes under the band name Neodymium Project. It all began on my iMac using Apple’s brilliant Garageband with my iPad, Tunecore, Pro Tools, iWeb, Dropbox, Paypal, Bigcartel, Snapseed, Pixelmator, Yousendit, Jango, MySpace and Facebook all playing a part in making it happen. But it was through social media, that I was able to have my guitar hero Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) play the lead solo on the track. The one common thread – technology.
