I’m trying to determine who listens — or perhaps does not listen — to my online performances. Will you take a few moments to answer a six-question survey?
I was very sad to receive this in my email on January 1. I fully understand why TheStage.tv needed to close; I only wish that I had been able to be more active at the site.
One of the reasons that they decided to call it quits was the lack of participating audience members at the site. Many great musicians performed at TheStage, but they could never seem to draw audiences of any size to see them. Though each artist had the opportunity to cross-post their performances at Facebook, Twitter, and the like, it never seemed to result in people taking a look. I will miss the site.
I took a look at YouNow as they recommended. I don’t know that this site will be a place of interest to me or not. It will take some time for me to judge the community there to determine if it is worthwhile.
Here’s the email:
entertainment, live performance, live performances, Music, Music Stuff, musicians, TheStage, video performance
Unfortunately, we have made the decision to close TheStage.tv. Thanks so much for your participation and support on the web’s first open mic.
We would like this opportunity to bring to your attention to a new site: YouNow Music.
YouNow.com is a new collaborative broadcasting site that we really like and believe will be a good alternative for our community.
YouNow features many contests, and in fact will be having a Singer/Songwriter contest in January, with prizes over $5,000.
(Last Contest Try outs are January 10th 5-7 PM EST!)
So, please browse on over to http://www.younow.com/music and become familiar with the system so you are ready to participate in the contest, or check out some of the other channels that YouNow offers (e.g. comedy, talk, etc.).

Did you miss the show? You can listen to my performance from 6 February. Of course, I would love it if you catch these live, but from time to time I’ll post my performances here (if I feel the recording is good enough to share).
This is presented warts and all. There is an apparent skip in the second song. I guess that’s what makes it live.
