CEO Ramos-Cabera Outlines Features that Differentiate Backstage Vibeā„¢ from Other Social Music Outlets

NEW YORK, July 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Design Station International (OTC Pink: LDSI) is pioneering a new way to bring music to the masses while still allowing the artists to maintain a high level of control over their music. LDSI is developing a new business model for the music industry called Backstage Vibe™. LDSI CEO Janina Ramos-Cabera recently sat down with a staff writer at Conmigo Partners (CP) to discuss the advantages of this new venture.

During her interview Ms. Ramos-Cabera explained that this new website is more than an online music store and more than a social networking opportunity. She passionately offered a number of differences regarding how artists, promoters, producers, and fans will all have a new vehicle to connect with one another:

  • Artists will be able to collaborate in a way that has not been done before – online, in real time, worldwide;
  • By sharing a platform with promoters and producers, artists will have a greater chance of being 'discovered';
  • Producers and promoters will have a one-stop shop to discover their next star-in-the-making;
  • Artists, producers and promoters will be able to build their own individual storefronts as well as sell their wares in the larger Backstage Vibe™ store;
  • Artists will have full control over the pricing of their music and merchandise;
  • Backstage Vibe™ will allow artists, producers, and promoters to move beyond simply selling digital music. Artist, producers, and promoters will have the ability to sell their merchandise, event tickets, and apparel;
  • Fans will be able to have "backstage" access to their favorite talent with the opportunity to interact on a more intimate level than has been experienced before; and
  • Artists will be able to solicit real time feedback from their fans in order to produce the best possible final product.

Ms. Ramos-Cabera went on to tell CP that she envisions a time when an artist can logon to the portal with a few songs in their notebook and by the time they logoff walk away with new band members, new music for their lyrics, a producer for these songs, and a promoter for their next concert.

Ms. Ramos-Cabera added that this is a great time to break into the social music arena as the overall digital music industry continues to grow at an impressive pace. In 2011, digital album sales saw a 19% increase in the U.S. and an astonishing 27% growth in the UK. Digital channels accounted for an estimated 32% of global revenues for record companies in 2011. Ms. Ramos-Cabera continued that global online music revenues are expected to rise to $7.7 billion by 2015.

Ms. Ramos-Cabera has deep roots in the music industry. Her family has owned a successful recording studio in Florida and she has promoted and helped produce a number of artists and music groups both in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  She will help lead the marketing effort but has hired a marketing team to get the word out about this new social music network. The campaign will begin by targeting major metro areas from New York City to Seattle. A number of events with up-and-coming artists are also on the horizon.
