Through OurStage Radio, a free application, music fans will be able to discover, judge and listen to the best new music from independent and emerging artists across all genres. OurStage Radio features a thumbs-up and thumbs-down feature through which users can rate music. As music fans start to identify their favorites, OurStage will develop personalized recommendations that can be found in each user's "recommended" tab. Lists can also be further personalized by identifying genre preferences.
"As music discovery continues to evolve, we strive to support the process by helping artists and fans interact, exchange ideas, share music and much more," said Ben Campbell, founder and CEO of OurStage. "With the launch of OurStage Radio, we are further building upon our commitment to provide fans with a multi-platform approach to discover new music. We are excited to offer this unique application to music fans seeking quality, new music from both regional and well-known musicians."
