By combining an online social network with a filtered emerging-artist network, indie911 takes the online music and film experience to a new level. Here music artists and digital filmmakers interact directly with their audiences, who in turn help promote and digitally distribute the music and video they listen to the most.
Since its initial launch as a streaming music network in March 2004, indie911 has quickly grown into one of the most trusted sources for independent music, perhaps due to the company's loyal user base. Driven almost entirely by word of mouth, indie911.com now receives over one million monthly visitors.
"Most of the media content that reaches the eyes and ears of mass audiences is delivered by large corporations whose very structure often dictates its content," indie911 CEO Justin Goldberg said, "indie911 caters to the creativity that thrives outside of the mainstream; the best artists and audiences usually do."
While the mainstream music industry in particular struggles with unprecedented downsizing and corporate consolidation, the independent sector is thriving, giving indie911 a clear opportunity in today's online media marketplace. Goldberg continued: "indie911's ultimate mission is to break outdated distribution molds. We supply online audiences with great new music and film to discover while giving artists an integrated platform to thrive independently in today's new online entertainment economy."
indie911 has agreements with leading entertainment organizations, including Songcatalog, Mediaguide, iMesh, The Canadian Consulate, MINC, The French Music Office, GroupieTunes, Business Wire, ASCAP, and the DCIA.
