eMusic Is The Coolest

One of the biggest surprises since we have started One21music is the lack of interest our readers have shown in eMusic.
Download 25 FREE songs at eMusic.com!
This was the first ad we put on our site. We thought people would flock to get 25 free songs. No one has explored the trial subscription, so I thought I would give you a testimonial from an excited subscriber. But first let me explain eMusic.

eMusic is the #1 site for independent music, with a library of over 4,500,000 MP3s.  eMusic sets itself apart from other well-known subscription music services (such as Napster and Rhapsody) because eMusic customers truly own the music they download.  The files available for download are in the MP3 format, making them fully compatible with all digital music players, and free from digital rights management Hippo software restrictions such as expiration dates, or copying or CD burning limitations. eMusic’s MP3′s play on any portable music player (including the iPod and Zune), can be downloaded to unlimited computers as well as burned to CD.

Here is how it works.  You can subscribe to download  25 to 100 songs each month based on the subscription level you buy.  The base subscription is 25 songs ($11.99 per month), then grows in 25 song increments (50 songs for $14.99, 75 songs for 19.99, 100 songs for $24.99).  eMusic offers about 25 different plans bu these are the most popular.

I have been a subscriber for over a year and my co-founder has been a subscriber for about nine months.  We love, l-o-v-e, eMusic.  Ian maintains a list of over 100 CDs and uses up his subscription on the first day it is available.  I like to save my downloads to use over the month.  Today is May 8th and I have already downloaded 65 of my 100 songs, so I am not such a good saver.

These downloads are just like buying the CD’s or downloading songs from iTunes, except they are cheaper and you own them.  If you really like music, or if your CD store is the electronics section at WalMart or if you are just cheap; eMusic is for you.  I downloaded , on their release date, the highly acclaimed new CD from Beirut for @$2.75, the EP from Bon Iver for $1.00 and M.Ward’snew one for $3.50.  Beat those prices WalMart and iTunes.

But more than convienence and thrift, eMusic has great services to help you find music you will love.  You can browse by genre, editors’ picks, new music, free tracks, advance releases, members ratings and any combination of those categories.  eMusic has music journalists writing artist and genre features and reviews.

Finally, eMusic has an extensive collection of songs and CDs from artists we have profiled on One21music. See the list below.

I encourage you to at least give eMusic a try.

Category: The Spiritual whats this?

Nicole C. Mullen is a peculiar artist.  Her music is a mix of Contemporary Christian Music anthems such as the Dove award winning “On My Knees”, “Redeemer” and “Come Unto Me”; African, funk, R&B raves such as “This This”, “Freedom”, “Under The Shadow”;   and Neo-soul grooves like “Dancin’ in The Rain” and “Color”.  Nicole C. Mullen is a highly sought after songwriter, choreographer, author and speaker.

Why is our site, which covers underground Christian music, covering an eight-time Dove award winner?  Nicole C. Mullen is one of the rare “Christian” artists who can sing in front of people who know nothing about Jesus Christ and leave them wanting to know Him in a close and intimate way through her well-crafted, stylish songs.

Nicole C. Mullen‘s cds are as musically diverse as anyone on today’s music scene.  Her soft R&B-twinged voice and a relaxed soulful phrasing style is the central core that runs through every song.   Some of Nicole C. Mullen’s songs feature heavy African instrumentation and rhythm progressions.  Many of Nicole C Mullen’s songs are lavishly orchestrated anthems that are sung in churches throughout America.  Experience both in this long video where she performs both “Redeemer” and “Witness”.

Nicole C. Mullen recently said, “I love writing about reality from a Christian’s point-of-view. I believe that we as believers are called to make an impact on our culture. We are compelled to do that,” she says. “We as believers are called to give light to the world and we can’t give light by hiding. We’ve got to let those around us know we are believers in Jesus Christ, so I do my best to do that in my songs.”  She expresses that philosophy in her music as well.  Read the lyrics from “Blowing Kisses/Love Divine”:

Walkin’ down Broadway I saw a mom and her baby She came up to me And asked me for a dime I said now come on I’ll take you to this diner Gave her more than food It cost me 6 o’ 5

People don’t need just money, people need love and time Spent a little time with the hurting honey and got myself love-a-fied Now I’m

(Chorus) Blowin’ kisses to the one I love Blowin’ kisses to the father above Helpin’ others to feel His touch Blowin’ kisses to the one I love

Well, she said their names Were Rachel and Little Nikki I said, “Hey, that’s strange Cause Niki’s my name too” As she turned to go She spoke the words of blessing With an angel’s voice, she said “I see the Christ in you”

Nicole C Mullen uses her talents and fame to reach to the world as well. She established a mentor group for girls called “The Baby Girls Club”. She and her husband, David Mullen, are youth leaders in their local church, tutor inner-city youth, and participate in Kids Across America summer camp( http://kidsacrossamerica.org/) for inner city youth. Nicole C. Mullen is also active with the International Needs Network Ghana, an organization that works to free Trokosi slaves in Ghana. Here she is creating a place for these horribly abused female Trokosi slaves in a few minutes of joyful singing

Nicole C Mullen is an important R&B artist who sings about Christ.  Nicole C. Mullen is a vital Christian music artist whose songs fill churches across America every Sunday.   Nicole C. Mullen is a fun recording artist who makes dancable, singable songs.  Enjoy.
