Artist Website Initiative

At gighive our purpose has always been to build a network to showcase Independent artists of all types. We first went online December 7, 2007 and during that time we have altered our course somewhat, as we strived to fine tune our vision. But our goals has always remained the same.

Our website initiative will be our number one priority as we go forward to 2012 and beyond.
