Craving something spicy? Virtual Hot Wings released!

Quite the Team!

Two weeks ago I started a conversation with a ninja (Christopher Penn, to those of you who don’t know) in Second Life who had broken into the treehouse to listen to a live stream of Matthew Ebel/Hali Heron in concert. The result? Virtual Hot Wings, a landmark fan created and released album of Matthew’s Second Life tour, is now available for download. This brilliant piano man gives himself to his fans each time he puts his fingers on the keyboard and does it so well.

Unlike buying an album from CD Baby or iTunes, which then take a cut from the sale, this album entirely benefits Matthew, 100% of all proceeds are instantly paid to him!

With the assistance of C.C. Chapman and crayon (read the press release here), this release has the power to change the way that the music industry works. The record labels and the RIAA have a whole lot of catching up to earn the love and loyalty of the fans the way that Matthew has.

Join the live concert by Matthew on tomorrow from 11 AM – 1 PM SLT (2-4 EST) at the Coke’s Virtual Thirst Pavilion. You can purchase a copy of the CD during the concert! I’ll see you there!

Don’t forget to digg or tweet this to the world, spread the word and show the RIAA what it means to be a fan! (All multimedia on this release can be found here.)

  1. Excellent project and a fantastic idea to help promote independent music! Put the cash back in the hands of the artists where it belongs. Luv ya Chel!

  2. Woohooo!!! Looks like Hot Wings for dinner tonight!! It’s especially great since I was at all of the concerts and now get to relive the experiences again as often as I want. I truly hope that this project is a HUGE success not only to put food on Matthew’s table but also to blaze a trail for others and become a new model in favor of the artists.
