More about BreakoutBand:
Brooklyn-based BreakoutBand is designed for people primarily ages 13-25 interested in making music, regardless of experience. Artists on BreakoutBand become overnight music producers and singers using the company’s proprietary web-based platform, which includes an interactive beatmaker and a multi-track vocal booth with pitchfix (the company’s version of auto-tune – so anyone can be the next Ke$ha or T-Pain). Songs can be released to weekly charts, entered into competitions, shared with friends on Facebook and Twitter, and downloaded to iTunes.

The product speaks to a growing contingent of aspiring pop stars who have witnessed overnight stardom through American Idol, Glee and YouTube and desire an outlet to share their own voice in hopes of being discovered. BreakoutBand also appeals to a new generation of music fans for whom the consumption of music alone does not satisfy their needs and seek a more interactive experience.
