Playing Around with Technology
Technology has taken art, social, and entertainment to all kinds of new levels that we never imagined possible just a few short years ago! Here are some favorites.
Engage with your Favorite Musicians
Some really fun social media platforms out there are near and dear to our hearts. BandPage is one of them! This company is unlocking new opportunities for the music industry by connecting musicians, fans and partners on a single platform. From Alicia Keys and Beyonce to Stone Foxes and Usher, more than 500,000 musicians use this company’s platform to create amazing interactions between artists and their fans, building deeper relationships between them. From interviewing your favorite musician to singing with them onstage, bands offer up a variety of experiences, BandPage help musicians create new revenue streams and drive higher fan engagement. The platform allows musicians to upload their profile, bio, pictures, videos, tracks and tour dates – and then update that information across the social web.
Get Your Own Record Deal!
StarMaker is another fun one. From home entertainment to amateur musicians making an audition, the StarMaker app turns everyone into a super star! It lets you create high quality recordings, edit and share anonymously to the community or with your friends on social platforms.
