Merry Christmas...

The Unsigned Countdown and Underground Recap Sessions were born two years ago under the name The Artists Outlet. Started in September we began by featuring a variety of unsigned and independent musicians bands and artists. Our hope was always to spread the word about the undiscovered music thats out there and with the creation of an annual Christmas special we wanted the world to come together and celebrate the season with a new kind of Holiday broadcast. Void of the standard music thats heard every year on the radio and T.V.

This is now our third annual Christmas special and I personally could not be happier about the accomplishment. We are still the only music based podcast on The Stitcher smart radio app, The only platform there for unsigned and independent artists and so by nature we are the only Christmas special featuring unsigned and independent musicians bands and artists on the Stitcher smart radio app. Find the link to Stitcher here on our home page or on our website at

While it"s been a pretty strange year our goal is and will be to put the music first. Remember that by supporting this project you are supporting Independent music and originality. Our goal is to offer a platform for those without one. Our hope is top offer feedback to those that don'T HAVE IT. Our intent is to have fun turning you on to a new band or a great sound so please take the time to follow any musician that you think is deserving of a new fan. Spread the love, tell them you discovered them here on The Unsigned Countdown, and Please please have a merry Christmas

The Final Top Five...

Thanks for the support. We've worked hard to get through this season and the only reason we have is because of you the fan. Thank you to each and every band that has been apart of this project. I hope some where in all of this we've done some good for some one. Thank you to Tony for helping to develop the concept and to Adam, Johan, Nicole, Jacob, Travis, and Charles for being brave enough to join in as reviewers and offer up some much needed advice and input. Thank you as well to our guest hosts this year Brent, Rocky, Erik, and Andy for helping out. It's been an honor to get to know you all.

The beginning Of The End...

Thank you to everyone that has been involved in the creation production and success here at The Unsigned Countdown and The Underground Recap Sessions. Your support and interest, your shares and likes have been what has kept us gong even in times when we've wondered if we should go on. Still at this point in time questions remain. Should we consider a third season, How should we evolve, and what should our goals be if we were to continue?

This episode is the beginning of the end of our second season. We will be taking a month after this to reflect on our future. To gather feedback and advice and decide if we should come back stronger then ever. If you have an opinion Tweet us @jarcodes and let us know what we can do to become a better platform for the Bands Musicians and Artists that are so special to us. Thank you to all one hundred bands that have allowed us to feature their music. Here and now we have for your entertainment ten new unsigned and Independent songs just for you.
