The highly anticipated multi genre compilation, Independent No.1’s Vol.4, has been released worldwide today on W.O.A Records. This Volume 4 of the Independent No.1’s album features 20 of the worlds biggest Indie stars and upcoming artists on the fast rise to Indie stardom. Some of the artists on the featured list of this Double CD includes Top 40 Smooth Jazz/New Age Artist from Colorado USA Louis Colaiannia; MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee and Vh1 Top 10 Artist from Leicestershire United Kingdom Oliver Sean; Rising star from Texas USA Victoria Celestine, along with 20 Indie Stars from various countries from Australia to Italy to America and Pakistan to Lithuania to the United Kingdom, each performing a different genre from Country, Rock, World and Jazz to Pop and even experimental fusion.
It is unprecedented for a compilation to feature so many different genres on one album together. While most labels stick to one particular genre, W.O.A Records broke this mould in 2009 with the launch of the very first Independent No.1’s Vol.1, which led to the album receiving rave reviews from media and extended radio airplay on commercial radio that usualy cover only major label music.
“Today the Independent No.1’s compilation is the most sought after compilation when it comes to Independent Artists and discovering real music by real musicians” says the founder of The W.O.A Entertainment Group and Artist/Producer Oliver Sean, “we keep the manufactured acts at bay and it really isn’t about how many CDs we sell, its more about how many people become fans of these Indie Artists and once you become a fan of an Indie Artist you are a fan for Life – that in my opinion is priceless for a real artist”
The Independent No.1’s Compilation is distributed to Radio, Press and Retail Chains including Live Music Venues for free, fans who go to record stores could also win free copies just by picking up a CD and taking it to the till. This is all being done to promote Independent Musicians and try to make a small change in the music industry and bring a change to how fans get in touch with new music and new artists that are not promoted like a product in a super market – but by discovering these real artists, who make real music, in the real world and are successful in the industry in their own right without having to let themselves or their creativity be controlled by record labels.
