Pandora, the leading internet radio service, today announced that it has launched an open music submission process designed to make it easier than ever for independent artists to be discovered and heard on the personalized stations of the service’s more than 70 million active listeners. The new system, accessible online at submit.pandora.com, is a simple, digital, three-step process to submit tracks for consideration.
Pandora has announced plans to make it easier for unsigned and independent artists to submit music to the Internet radio streaming service. The new open music submission process follows a three-step online process allowing artists to submit songs for consideration – they basically just complete their contact details and provide links to their tracks. Prior to this, Pandora required users to have a CD available for sale on amazon, with a UPC (barcode). Available in the US, Australia and New Zealand only, Pandora is a music-streaming subscription service available on mobile and the Web. The company claims around 80 million people tune in to Pandora each month.
