BAMM.tv: Chris Hansen Talks Independent Music – TechCrunch Disrupt 2011 SF
Indie bands work hard at what they do. I know – I’ve done it myself. When you create and work your venue circuits, a lot of self-promotion is involved. Therefore, if you don’t play in – let’s say – Arizona, you don’t get fans there. That is why you need a TV solution to get your music out to the places you don’t travel.
That is where BAMM.tv comes in. Artists submit their music
For the artist, we are really trying to be a voice and a promotional vehicle that they don’t have. For people (like me) that are looking for content, we are trying to be a hassle-free way to license high quality music.
BAMM finds the bands and either record them at a festival, or invite them into their studios to record 3-4 songs. It’s free to do and whatever profits are made on the net you split.
BAMM wants to create a custom playlist for people to choose from. They also work with new service providers to add music to their channels. If you get noticed by a label, then BAMM will help get you signed by that group.
While being featured on devices like Samsung, your music could be seen in over 150 countries world-wide.
