Hi guys and thanks for the kind words about Zimbalam.
We spotted the article and wanted to let you know that we do actually distribute music to the Zune Marketplace! It's actually 'powered by' one of the stores we distribute to but music that is uploaded to 'All Stores' using Zimbalam in the UK or USA should appear on the Zune Marketplace. As it's powered by a separate store we don't list it directly as one of the stores but we will be sure to add a logo so users know we're covering the store!
We have also introduced, as of Friday, a new deal where artists receive 100% of their royalties for the same up-front fee, instead of the 90% quoted in the article. Now, instead of giving up 10% of every sale we have added a new low annual fee that is deducted from royalties instead, meaning artists stand to make a lot more from their music and as we deduct the fee, rather than charge your account, there's no risk to keeping a release online!
Kevin Rowe is just one of the many artists using Zimbalam currently live on Zune Marketplace: http://social.zune.net/album/Kevin-R...2a3933/details
