iWantJam announced the launch of the beta version of their live music streaming portal at http://www.iwantjam.com. Singers, musicians and bands are invited to register and set up their artist profile where they can share their music, events and build an audience for their online concerts.
While bands focus on driving bigger audiences to their shows, there is an even larger fanbase left out because they are not able to attend. iWantJam enables bands and musicians to tap into this neglected pool by allowing them to be an integral part of any live event, anywhere is the world. Fans no longer have to "wish they could be there," as they're seeing the entire concert from beginning to end right in the comfort of their own homes or anywhere their laptop or digital device allows. Combined with interactive tool allowing fans to be 'part of the show,' iWantJam gives fans immediate gratification while giving emerging act a much needed "shot in the arm" from a global audience.
Leading up to the site's beta launch, iWantJam has chosen three artists as 'iWantJam Endorsed,' representing acts that embody the ideals espoused by the site (i) live music, (ii) touring and (iii) connecting with fans worldwide through social media. iWantJam Endorsed Artists include Zurich-based Miss Diamond DJane, Boston's One Step Away and Connecticut pop/rock band Brookline Drive.
iWantJam is a brand new type of music site that aims to connect musicians and fans worldwide through live shows, video streaming and social media. Nothing can replace the feeling of a live show, and iWantJam's powerful & easy-to-use platform will bring your favorite band right into your bedroom for free. Artists will be able to connect with their fans on a much deeper level than just a profile page and music button, thus offering far more than a promotional device, but a unique experiential connection. Come and join the online live music experience of iWantJam!
