pastemusic.com - "Music has a power over many of us in ways that can be hard to describe to non-music lovers. While music can be fun, intoxicating, mind-numbing, or energizing, Paste seeks to find artists who play music that awakens something deeper within us. Whether it stirs us with stories of hope, despair, charity, depravity, joy or destitution, it contains a thread of the common human condition that connects to our soul. This is PasteMusic.
The artists we've chosen to promote are generally independent, lesser known musicians who deserve to be heard, and who we think you'll be glad to discover. The styles are as varied as alternative pop, rock, and Celtic, with a concentration of modern singer/songwriter folk/rock. While the vehicles may differ, the commonality is in the poetry, the stories, the truths, and the emotions of the artists.
PasteMusic.com is a gathering place for people who are looking for music that will connect to their souls, whether to buy an album, read about a new artist or listen to a song at PasteRadio. There's not really a name for this genre, so we're content to let you take a listen and come to your own conclusions." - Quoted from the Pastemusic.com website.

Vineyard Central - "In some mysterious way all of us are seekers, saints, and sinners -- though perhaps in varying degrees. No matter what mixture of seeker, saint, and sinner you are you're welcome here. So, where is "here"? Is this a church? A place where wine is made? An extended family? We're a little hard to define-though not intentionally-so if you're new to this site maybe you should poke around the rooms of this house and see for yourself. Nothing is off limits-feel free to make yourself at home. Kick your shoes off if you'd like and stay awhile. This house will be under constant renovation so come back as often as you'd like and see the changes. We're glad you're here!" - Quoted from the Vineyard Central website.

Why we are: We are interested in putting artists on the Internet for no other reason than our own love for the music scene and interest in Internet activity.
Why you: The Web is the perfect medium for helping unsigned artists: It provides a great way for fans, potential fans, and even record labels to learn about you, find out about your upcoming shows, sample your music, and contact you. If you are looking to expose your band in every way possible, there is no way better than the Web. Without this World Wide exposure, you could miss potential fans and record labels.
Where we fit in: We will be promoting artists to record labels, magazines and anywhere we can gain attraction. This puts them in the Information Superhighway's 'fast lane.'" - Quoted from the localmusik.com website.
Parker Pottery Gallery - "My interest in pottery began with a semester of pottery classes at Grove City College. After several years away from college and working with clay, I was driving past a local pottery shop and thought that it would be fun to get involved in pottery again. I began renting studio space at Annie's Mud Pie Shop. I have continued teaching myself since that time. In the fall of 1998 my parents helped me to buy a wheel so that I could set up a studio. A friend provided a kiln for me to share. My studio is currently set up in the boiler room of Vineyard Central in Norwood, Ohio." - Quoted from the Parker Pottery Gallery website.
