    /24-7PressRelease.com/ - March 26, 2005 - Music listeners are being sued by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for filesharing on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, but Scott G (recording artist The G-Man) embraced the concept and offered all the music on his first album for free via P2P. (And yes, we realize there are a lot of initials in this story!)

The G-Man went even further, sending individual tracks of his songs (bass, guitar, drums, synthesizer, etc.) to anyone who wanted to mix a new version of his work. And while the Hollywood studios and the major record companies fret and litigate in an attempt to shut down P2P, Scott G feels it actually created his career.

"Everything started to happen for me once I began giving those first songs away for free," G-Man states. "The results have changed my life, both personally and professionally."

He is now signed to Delvian Records, a part of The Gate Media Group, all his albums are on Apple's iTunes, and he is running his own production company, G-Man Music and Radical Radio, where he has created commercials for Verizon Wireless, Goodrich, Micron, NASSCO, the Auto Club, and more.
