AltSounds is an international alternative online music community. By ‘Alternative’ we don’t mean ‘Alt Rock,’ we mean it as its technical definition – Alternative to the mainstream. It’s about having a choice, both in music and where you go to hear it. At AltSounds, we have designed a community that gives listeners a place to find the best new music available in an environment that works for them and with them. For artists, we have designed profiles that work like EPKs and have built-in, automatic promotion to help them gain new fans and create their own buzz more easily. For labels, we have designed an inexpensive promotion and advertising system that allows them to reach a large focused audience with incredible ease. We have seen what else is out there and decided it wasn’t good enough. Other sites do not satisfy all of our needs as fans, musicians, and artist promoters. We needed a site that could do it all without costing fans money, crashing regularly and sounding like shit, and the only way to get it was to build it ourselves.
AltSounds is committed to providing the best possible service to artists, labels and especially fans by making the site wholly interactive and constantly fresh. We encourage fans to express themselves through the site by adding the content that THEY care about. We create our own original content and offer our expert opinions on various facets of music, as well as collect the most important and entertaining content available online. We bring the fans exactly what they want, and gather it into the most functional and visually appealing music site on the internet. Being so ‘fan-focused’ has allowed us to create a promotional system for artists unparalleled in other alleged artist sites. In addition to having profiles laid out more like EPKs, acting as the ‘ultimate fan page,’ the built-in promotion and advertising for premium artists allows the high quality music to cycle through the entire site, bringing it to people’s attention no matter where they are or what they are doing. Premium artists are also included in our various radio stations, making their music even more accessible, and also qualifying them for additional front page, on-site and off-site promotion. AltSounds provides artists with all of the tools necessary to take them to the next level of promotion.
There is no other site like AltSounds, as we are the first to fully understand what it means to be a fan, be a musician, and work in the biz. We have a created a site from that perspective and know you will love it.
