Digital Downloads Offer Sucess For Indie Artists With the help of services like BurnLounge, indie artists like "Ball in the House."

Music group Ball in the House recently announced their launch of a digital music store through BurnLounge, the first community-powered digital music service that enables passionate music fans to sell the music they love to friends or like-minded individuals.

While Ball in the House may not be on a major record label, the Boston-based pop and R&B band has risen above the ranks of professionally-signed chart-toppers, including the Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Gorillaz, Kelly Clarkson and James Blunt. Thanks to the emergence of digital music download services such as BurnLounge - on which Ball in the House held the coveted number one position on the BurnLounge Top 10 Chart for two full weeks in March 2006 - independent artists can compete with signed artists on a more level playing field.
