Madison, WI & Foster City, CA- February 25, 2004-- Broadjam Inc, a leading provider of Internet and desktop tools for musicians, record labels, and publishers announced today that they have formed a cooperative marketing partnership with Live365, the largest Internet radio network. Independent artists associated with Broadjam will have direct access to Live365 for easy-to-use tools and services that will enable them to set up their own radio stations and gain exposure through Live365’s audience of over 3 million listeners a month.
Broadjam, a burgeoning music technology firm, has created a highly acclaimed and rapidly growing independent music web site, www.broadjam.com. This music community enables indie artists to upload their music online, get their songs reviewed through Broadjam’s sophisticated song review mechanism, create personal web pages, and qualify for its popular Top 10 Charts. The Broadjam web site currently features over 100 Top 10 lists that are automatically generated from song reviews, assuring very high caliber independent music. They’re grouped by genre (Rap, Blues, Electronic, e.g.), region (Mid-Atlantic, Scandinavia, Texas, e.g.), production (female vocal, up tempo, instrumental, e.g.), and fan picks (age 15-24, age 25-36, e.g.).
Broadjam is also a leading provider of Internet and desktop tools for musicians, record labels, and publishers, with a client list that includes Billboard, Warner/Chappell, the Academy of Country Music, and TAXI. Their revolutionary new software package, METAJAM, prepares songs for digital searches then uploads song data and audio files for easy perusing by fans and industry pros looking for just the right music.
"Plugging the power of Broadjam into Live365 makes the music of independent artists in our community more accessible to listeners through another venue," said Roy Elkins, Broadjam’s founder and CEO. "We’re looking forward to working with Live365 on a long-term basis to make radio airplay an obtainable goal for our members."
