I spend a good part of the day doing state-of-the-artists research on the web (aka "surfing"), and ran into the name of Matthew Ebel a couple of times as an example of somebody who has mastered the art of digital career building.
I first heard of Matthew earlier this year when a Twitter friend posted about Matthew's weekly Monday Ustream concert-in-his-basement webcasts. I tuned one in and liked it enough to buy the iTunes version of his CD "Goodbye Planet Earth." When I ran into his name today, I remembered I had that album and listened to it again.
I'd forgotten how much fun — and how well produced — "Planet Earth" is. If you haven't heard Matthew before, it's well worth a listen.
