Indie Bands Rejoice

conor 21st of December 2008 by conor

The fab designer of Web2Ireland, James Gallagher, just contacted me about the re-launch of LiveWebStars and their partnering with one of my fave web-sites,

livewebstars promotes new music by enabling up-and-coming artists to perform and interact using live on-line streaming – broadcasting their lives, practice sessions, gigs etc to an audience right around the globe.

By working together with DownloadMusic, they enable consumers to buy mp3s with their mobile phone and also watch, hear and chat to the band in real time.

This is the sort of smart partnering that makes complete sense. It benefits everyone involved and will be of huge benefit to Indie Bands trying to get noticed and differentiate themselves.
