NovemberStar Entertainment helps music seekers find great (often DRM-free) music, with a preference for independent or artist produced music.
Let’s start with a sample for country music fans: Wyatt McCubbin ‘No Fake Love Song’
Now, moving a step or two away from country: The Boundary Birds (Deblois) ‘Someone Like That’
Now let’s lean over a ways toward some Hip Hop and even a little into some jazzy zone
with Rizzle Kicks ‘Earl Grey’
And, while we’re near that Jazz zone, check this out by Sharon Lang:
Now, over toward the blues, we have the Bluesraiders ‘falling’
Digging into the roots of the Blues (and we do appreciate the roots of music), Muddy Waters laments some sad recent correspondence in ‘Sad Letter Blues’
And, speaking of Roots Music, we appreciate music with a conscience, music with something to say. Grant Peeples, rising in the Americana charts, has piercing insights into the ‘wreck our world is in’, as we see in ‘I Know Why Poets Drink and Smoke’
Andrew McGee in ‘Under the Brine’ has something to say about the oil spill in 2010.
Music expresses heritage and culture. Jessita Reyes & Grupo Yaqui give us musical insight into the spiritual connection between men and deer in the instrumental ‘Deer Spirit’
(And, if you like Native American flute, you should also check out Jonny Lipford.)
Most often, the purpose of music is to reveal our personal emotions, the joy of love and the sadness of love lost, the passions of romance, the sweetness of friendship, the up and downs of disappointment, depression, happiness, encouragement, and perseverance. Our feelings identify with good music as we discover that others feel and express similar experiences in their journeys through life. Music connects us emotionally. Hopefully, we have all experienced the anticipation of a lover as expressed by Marianne Allison in ‘Come to Me’.
Of course, an undeniable benefit of music is just to relax us, open our eyes to beauty, and smooth out our day as in another great (award winning, in fact) song from Marianne Allison that we will save for later, as well as in this instrumental from Butch Baldassari, ‘As Far as I Can See”. Let this one play while you keep reading . . .
Music is a part of our being, from the first hunter/gatherers who beat sticks together, creating the rhythm to make their long day’s trek to more fertile grounds less dreary, to the sophisticated orchestras of today enjoyed in formal settings. Music is a connection to our soul. Physicists have discovered that all matter is just an expression of vibrating energy. Some say that the fabric of the cosmos is much like the strings on a grand musical instrument. The shape and form of the fundamental building blocks of all matter spring from the melody to which the particular strings of energy within them vibrate. Thus, you could say the Universe and all the variety within it is a chorus of melodies played by the hands of the Creator.
NovemberStar Music is foremost a site to celebrate music. Our goal is to provide a community for artists and a great place for music lovers to find and enjoy new music – to expand their horizons of music appreciation.
We find great new music for you to enjoy. Some you can download legally and for free. The rest is great new stuff that is well worth the price to have a killa music library. As for our free music, there’s a joke that ‘being a fan’ is not legally sufficient payment for downloading a song. That is true, but with one very important exception. It IS LEGAL if the artist (or the artist’s rightsholder) says it is! And many artist make some of their best songs available for free download to give you the opportunity to hear their music and become a fan. Instead of worrying about what’s legal and what’s not, let us do the work for you. All of our free mp3s have been legally made available for download for your personal enjoyment by the copyright holder. To check out our free music, go to Free MP3s
But, we are about much more than just finding free music. We bring artists and fans together. Music fans can explore our Artist Search Engine and be the first to discover great new finds. Artists can contact us to have their music made available from our site.
Our Featured Artists section brings to you our pick of the best of the best of indie musicians and a few signed musicians as well. Let us save you time searching for music while we search the Internet for those rare finds that you can add to your mp3 player.
Our Artist Search Engine is a great place to search by artist name, or genre to find indie music to suit your tastes.
