San Francisco (California), USA – Six Degrees Records has launched their “Download of the Week” promotion to highlight their Emerging Artists series. The Emerging Artists series brings the freshest talent in eclectic, genre bending music in a digital only format. For nine consecutive weeks, consumers will be able to download a free MP3 song from an Emerging Artist on the Six Degrees Records blog. Every Tuesday, the blog will be updated with a new MP3 from a different Emerging Artist. In addition, Six Degrees Records will reduce the price of all the “Emerging Artist” tracks in its web store to 79¢ per song.
