BandFrame.com Introduces Interactive, Customized Web Platform For Musicians
Site Aggregates Artists’ Content, Empowers Them to Create an Online Presence That Looks as Good as They Sound
BOSTON, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Today, BandFrame(TM) debuted an interactive online home for musicians at www.BandFrame.com. Combining a sleek, magazine-style layout with an intuitive interface, BandFrame(TM) delivers a powerful suite of web design tools that enable musicians to create a highly-customizable web space in minutes, with no formal web experience needed.
Founded by three Berklee College of Music alumni, BandFrame(TM) offers bands, solo artists, sidemen, educators, film scorers, producers, recording engineers and more a unique platform on which to build or enhance their web presence. Users can organize a bio, audio, video, tour dates, social feeds and other storytelling assets into a page that captures their personality and brings their musical style and experience to life.
“In today’s fast-paced music industry, the key to capturing attention is through clear, convenient, and eye-catching communication,” said Mike Blong, Co-Founder of BandFrame(TM). “BandFrame(TM) provides musicians – regardless of scale – with a platform to effectively manage their web presence, promote their careers, connect with audiences and discover likeminded artists.”
Designed with both the musician and viewer in mind, the site’s high-quality customization tools, including colors, textures, fonts and graphics, enable musicians of all genres to build a focused, professional website. Although each BandFrame(TM) maintains core design and formatting features, artists can use real-time editing tools to create, update and adapt the design aspects of their page to match the distinctiveness and quality of their sound. The site, which is mobile-friendly and optimized for all major web browsers, provides viewers with an equally tailored and satisfying experience.
There are no design, setup, or hosting fees, and accounts are subscription-based, with both free (BandFrame BASIC) and paid (BandFrame PRO) plans available. BASIC accounts include a cover photo, biography, playlists for live listening, social media icons and booking and contact information. PRO accounts, which cost $8.99 per month, incorporate all of the BASIC features as well as video, show dates and real time social media integration; photo and newsfeed sections are coming soon.
BandFrame(TM), which has been in beta for the past year, already boasts a roster of established, nationally-touring musicians. To browse all artists or to sign up, visit www.bandframe.com. Watch a demo video here, and visit Facebook.com/BandFrame to join the music-inspired conversation.
