Social Networking Meets Digital Music Distribution
DETROIT, MI June 17th, 2007
WaTunes.com, the new music & entertainment social networking service,
today announced the launch of the WaTunes Music Group (WTMG) at:
http://www.watunes.com/ WaTunes Music Group is a digital music distribution network that enables music artists and recording labels to sell and distribute their music to over 100 music stores such as iTunes, Napster,
Rhapsody, eMusic, Sony Connect, Zune, Yahoo!, and many other music
retailers and mobile services for free.
As a WaTunes.com member, music artists and labels can sell their music by
logging in to their WaTunes.com account and choosing the new WTMG Panel.
The WTMG Panel provides unique tools such as: UPC Generation, Sales
Manager, Available Stores, and Customer Support. Music artists and labels
contact support to have their WTMG Account setup, which allows them to
upload their contents via FTP. Music artists then watch as their music is
live at the music stores and earn their sales every month.
DarkGlobe Records CEO Stefan Lane (also known as Styk Shift) says
"WaTunes will get plenty of business from me as well as the bringing
of others. I plan on DarkGlobe Records to grow thanks to WaTunes".
Styk Shift's music is currently available on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody,
and Sony Connect with his first debut album Electronic Addiction.
WaTunes.com Founder and CEO Kevin Rivers say, “WaTunes is a place where everyone can freely connect, share, listen, and sell their music and media contents to the world. I am pleased that we can now provide digital content delivery for independent music artists and recording labels that’ll make their music expand on a global scale.”
