audrahardyOpen source Gnutella p2p client FrostWire is gaining some traction for its FrostClick service, a new way for independent musicians to find their audience. The service puts an artist spotlight on the FrostWire welcome screen, offering an instant-play stream or a one-click download of as many free songs as the artist wishes, along with related external links.

FrostClick, which currently is promoting Audra Hardt, spoke to TorrentFreak about its first artist Sean Fornier. According to the piece, there were more than 25,000 downloads during the first weekend of the promotional offer despite the client’s limited reach and the artist’s relative anonymity. Fornier said on his blog, “My downloads have spiked tremendously since FrostClick / FrostWire stepped in so I wanted to take time to thank everyone over there and let them know that I appreciate all the support! This is awesome!”
