Hello Music, a sort of digital DIY aggregator for unsigned artists which launched at MIDEM earlier this year, added a new dashboard tool that lets clients manage their content and information across all of the company’s partner sites.
Hello Music works with several companies that provide online services for DIY artists, such as booking services like GigMaven, marketing services like TopSpin, digital distributors like MediaNet and TuneCore, and even webcasters like Slacker and Yahoo Music.
The Opportunity Engine 2.0, which is what the new dashboard tool is called, allows Hello Music artists to distribute music and organize their profiles across all partner sites via this one tool, as opposed to doing so on each service individually.
Additionally, Hello Music added PlayNetwork as one of its partners. PlayNetwork.
From the release:
Through this partnership, Hello Music and PlayNetwork will collaborate to find unique and valuable opportunities for Hello Music’s artists to gain distribution and visibility with PlayNetwork’s footprint of over 65,000 business subscriber locations. The new partnership will allow universal distribution of Hello Music’s content for PlayNetwork’s in-store, online and on-device media solutions providing extended promotional reach and exposure for Hello Music’s growing artist base.
PlayNetwork, whose award-winning team provides media experiences to more than 200 brands and 12 million customers each day, has introduced independent, undiscovered musicians through some of the world’s most well-known brands. The Hello Music-PlayNetwork partnership will result in greater distribution for the musicians and create a stronger consumer connection for brands. PlayNetwork will leverage Hello Music’s extensive database independent artists’ tracks to come up with music that best matches the specific brand goals of their clients.
