Songza Raises More Money

Streaming music service SONGZA disclosed in a SEC filing that it raised $3.8 million, TECHCRUNCH reports. A hybrid of SPOTIFY and PANDORA, SONGZA allows users to set up playlists based on day and time, with filters for whatever fits your mood.
Headquartered in LONG ISLAND CITY, NY, SONGZA was built by the team that founded crowd-priced MP3 download store AMIESTREET.COM in 2006 while at university. AMAZON, which has long been an "unconfirmed" investor listed on ANGELLIST, parlayed its investment in the earlier AIME ST vehicle into SONGZA. In late 2011 the startup closed what was reportedly a ‘seven-figure’ round of financing led by investors, including DEEP FORK CAPITAL, as well as an "undisclosed strategic investor." Also participating in the round was 24/7 REAL MEDIA Co-Founder GEOFF JUDGE.
