Webcasting crooner signed to RCA

Sandi Thom, the singer/guitarist whose live Webcast concerts created a cult following, has been signed by the RCA Label Group.

According to Thom's Web site, the official signing was Webcast at 9 p.m. U.K. time on April 3, 2006 and was "the first Webcast signing in major record label history."

The Scottish singer/guitarist has attracted fans with her live Webcam concerts from her basement in London.

"Anyone wanting to come to the venue physically and not watch it on the Web, please note that the room capacity is a maximum of 10 people including the band," Thom instructs the growing fan base on her Web site. "There is a sofa bed in the living room and a blow-up mattress in the basement, if anyone wants to stay over, but please bring your own sleeping bag."

Thom reached a peak audience of approximately 70,000 at the height of her live Webcam performances.

This is first U.K. signing for the newly formed RCA Label Group, which is part of RCA/SonyBMG.
