Start My Song helps songwriters get their music in front of music publishers, music supervisors, recording artists, advertising agencies, and others looking for that next big hit!
In the past, getting a new song heard by the right person in the music industry required endless amounts of effort and great connections since publishers and music supervisors are constantly bombarded with new material to the point that they are unable to listen to the rising pile of CDs on their desk.
Start My Song is hoping to change this by providing a unique new service to songwriters and music industry professionals everywhere. Start My Song is a web application where anyone can upload their new song demos ready for publishing. Anyone else in the world can listen to and rank the songs allowing Start My Song to create a TOP SONGS list directly on the homepage (http://startmysong.com). All one needs to do is visit Startmysong.com to begin hearing today’s newest material from songwriters everywhere pre-filtered by the end users. The PLAY ALL button makes it even easier as one can just sit back and listen while the top songs playlist plays the newest hits in order of popularity.
When music publishers, music supervisors, recording artists, advertising agencies and others looking for new songs find that hit they’ve been looking for, they can simply click the “Publish / License / Record” button to begin the process of making use of that song.
Each song and artist gets a unique URL making the music on Start My Song easy to share increasing the viral capabilities of the artists’ songs. The ShareThis widget increases the viral capabilities further by allowing users to share each unique link via email or on the social network of their choice directly from the artist’s or song’s page.
Start My Song also works with the iPhone where other flash based streaming music sites fail. Songs played from Start My Song via the iPhone browser will play on the iphone quicktime player as opposed to the normal flash player allowing listeners to hear the newest songs from anywhere.
