Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Founder and CEO Thomas Giannini announced today the public launch of Ampslam.com, the first hosting platform for independent music to integrate music and video digital distribution and web promotion with a social media networking technology.
Ampslam offers musicians a vehicle to upload their original songs at no cost and freely share their art with the world. While music lovers can stream and download MP3s from a host of genres, Ampslam takes no ownership rights in the songs of its members. Ampslam members can create personal profiles and event calendars, link their music videos, upload photos, blog, e-mail, read articles, exchange songs with other members, network for jobs, and engage dozens of digital portals including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Xanga.
“While uploading music onto any number of web-based promotional and distribution platforms is certainly crucial for independent musicians to establish an internet presence, the furtherance of an artist's brand combined with an explosion of a zealous fan base only comes from engaging heavily with a social media network. No independent music hosting platform offers both pieces of this equation,” Tom Giannini explains. “However, Ampslam does. And, there are no associated fees.”
“Not many sites would try so hard to encourage and support us. Ampslam is really just leading the way,” shared member musician Technetium from Seattle, WA.
“I am really happy about this and I just want to say that [Ampslam] rocks. [Ampslam] really connected with the people that come to the website, and that my friend is something that is rare indeed. I have spent hours on the site listening to other musicians. It’s kind of like opening a [present] when something new is posted,” stated William Lane, a member songwriter from West Virginia.
Ampslam’s monthly song contests provide an engaging opportunity for artists to showcase their work. A current contest even offers the winning member a complimentary synced light show from Baltimore-based WhamCityLights.
“A successful relationship between fans and artists has changed over the years,” says Giannini. “Today, the relationship must be a two way exchange, not the unapproachable stardom of the 70's. The social portal in Ampslam is just that technology that allows for bilateral communication.”
As Ampslam prepares for significant growth in membership and investment in 2014, it will continue to expand the reach of member artists by encouraging profile creation to all players in the music industry including venues, independent record labels, sound engineers, recording studios, entertainment law attorneys, and other musicians.
