Music United Launches New Service
February 6, 2013 at 2:50 PM (PT)
MUSIC UNITED, a new web-based service aimed at helping independent musicians to streamline their marketing and promotional efforts, is launching on FEBRUARY 14th. The platform is created in response to the needs of a new "working class" of musicians that have emerged in the digital age.
MUSIC UNITED was founded in 2011 by JAY GULOTTA, a musician who was excited about the opportunities created by social media, but was frustrated by the fractured nature of social channels. "I found myself spending more time making people aware that we were around, posting to 5, 10, 20 or more sites, and less time actually writing, making and playing music," GULOTTA said. "It was really frustrating."
The company is currently working with fans and musical acts of all levels of popularity to refine the platform. "A lot of programs reach audiences after they are almost finished," he said. "We want to encourage feedback. This site is going to be heavily influenced by the music community. We believe that we have a great service that is going to get better and better with strong user feedback. There are feedback opportunities all over the place."
