ReverbNation unveils music discovery app

By | Published on Wednesday 29 July 2015


US-based direct to fan platform ReverbNation has launched a new music discovery app, which, the firm says, “enables music fans to find their new favourite band before everyone else does”. And why not, I say. The app, called EchoMusic, basically aims to make it easier to navigate the ReverbNation community via a smartphone, checking out artists distributing their content on the D2F platform.

There’s some human and automated curation going on in their too, with the app – says ReverbNation itself – “utilising a combination of big data and a three-tiered review system by music experts in every genre from all across the country to identify the best tracks in the company’s extensive existing catalogue, as well as from the 30,000 new artists that join the site every month”.

Or, in the words of the firm’s CEO Mike Doernberg: “We have the world’s largest catalogue of music from new artists. But we also recognise that it’s not enough just to have a lot of music, there needs to be a way for music fans to be able to make sense of all of it. The EchoMusic app contains the very best artists in our community, hand-picked by our curation team, and served up in an accessible, easy to use way that helps music fans discover new bands before anyone else and share them with their friends”.
