Artists and music venues adapt to changing industry

  • Facebook and MySpace profiles now common for many artists and venues
  • Artists like John Mayer, Shawn Mullins and Sugarland played Atlanta-area club
  • With major music labels faltering, artists use creative means to survive

Decatur, Georgia (CNN) -- CNN Radio's Amanda Moyer and photographer Mark Hill visit Eddie's Attic, a club in the Atlanta, Georgia, area where a strict "no chatting" policy puts the focus on the performers.

They also spend some time with Nanyana Summer, an up-and-coming singer and songwriter, and talk about her strategy for finding new fans and generating buzz for upcoming performances.

For both the folks who run Eddie's Attic and Nanyana's band, social networking and the Web are an important part of the contemporary music scene.
