eListeningPost is a new way of distributing music. Artists receive a secure version of their track/video that can be sent directly to fans by email offering them 5 free plays of the track, which can then be forwarded to friends. The option to add ads to the previews gives artists an extra opportunity to earn revenue. Fans get pre-releases and exclusive tracks from their favourite bands, directly in their in-boxes and must give feedback in order to get all five plays. A direct music distribution service with no middleman.

For 17 years Greg has worked for business and technology companies. Most recently as international controller for RealNetworks, a creator of digital media services, digital rights management technology, and the first digital music licensing service MusicNet.
