Orem, UT (PressExposure) October 04, 2007 -- Premiere social music network Echoboost.com
has extended a free lifetime membership to everyone interested in discovering the best of unsigned artists and independent music. A new alternative for fans of online radio, Echoboost.com--formerly RadioFire.net--recently premiered with over 6,000 registered artists and 12,000 songs.
"Echoboost.com was created to help unsigned bands and songwriters expand their fan bases on local and national levels," notes founder and president Matt Henage. "Offering free lifetime memberships is just one of the ways we bring the audience to the artist."
The greatest incentive for music fans to employ Echoboost.com is to find the latest from unsigned bands and songwriters. Everyone that signs up will have their own free music player. The custom music player allows each music fan to search for and select the exact music genre they're interested in. It also encourages them to uncover local bands in their own hometown as well as music from unsigned artists and songwriters across the country. Best of all, these play lists can be saved and listened to at anytime.
Another reason for music fans to employ Echoboost.com is the ability to boost the songs they enjoy and drop the songs they don't. Songs that receive the most boosts will continue to be played at random on their Music Player, while dropped songs will make way for new tracks. In addition to assisting bands and songwriters reach new listeners, songs receiving the most boosts will be featured on regional and national Echoboost play lists.
Each registered listener is provided with their own profile page where they keep an archive of favorite artists, boosted songs, upcoming concerts and personalized play lists for their free music players. They can also post photos, a personal bio and other information for other listeners and artists to view. In addition, comment windows provide listeners and artists a simple way to interact.
Henage began work on the site in February 2005 as a solution for friends in local bands who had trouble gaining exposure for their music. "I knew a lot of musicians that were creating good, quality music, but they were all having the same difficult time finding people to share it with. It was a desire to help them be heard that led me to create Echoboost, a place where people can hear something new from bands in their own neighborhood and throughout the United States."
