ForMyBand is an interesting site that aims to change the way music is produced, promoted, bought, and sold. The first step to using ForMyBand is to find a band that you like on the site and then invest as little as 1 Euro in them.
Once you’ve made your big investment, you receive re-sellable music downloads and once the band reaches a predetermined amount of money through yours and other members’ sales, the money goes to the production of a studio album. You can take out your money at any time up until the goal has been met and give it to a different band if you have second thoughts. When the band has produced an album and is pulling in big bucks, you get a share of the profit which is determined by the amount that you originally invested.

“Invest in a band! The band produces music. Get money with the band’s success.”
Why ForMyBand.com It Might Be A Killer
This is an original idea which could really have legs. Allowing people to invest a tiny amount and then help in a band’s creation could prove successful for both new indie acts as well as investors.
