Welwyn, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 23, 2012 -- An innovative new website is promising to expand the reach for unsigned bands and generate lots of interest in their music by attracting scores of new fans.
Called 'MusicPush' it's the brainchild of James Mason who aims to empower music fans by allowing them to vote or 'push' for their favourite music in a site Top Ten chart. James said: "The music industry is really difficult for bands to break into but if they can create a groundswell of support that's a major plus for a record label to take notice.
"Reaction to the site has been brilliant so far. There's a lot of interest from bands and music lovers have found some great new sounds to enjoy."
MusicPush is free for bands to join and upload their songs. Fans then rate them - or 'Push' them - to compile a popular chart and visitors can find who is most popular with the site's users.
James added: "MusicPush came about because I wanted to create a site for unsigned bands and give people a way of creating an interesting Top Ten of bands who deserve to be signed and have commercial success.
"Users can also recommend bands and singers which is a great plus.
"Essentially, MusicPush is for anyone interested in up and coming bands and helping them along the way. You also get to hear great new music before lots of other people."
MusicPush is easy to use and already proving popular with users. Artists have their own profile page which is easily found with their own unique MusicPush url which has their music, a picture, stats, and biography.
James said: "MusicPush really is a site for the modern music fan because we use social media to great effect by helping to promote the band's music to a much wider audience."
Music fans get to share their music tastes via Facebook, Twitter and email and they can comment on any artist's music or profile.
