Broadjam Inc., a provider and licensor of Internet-based search tools and metadata for the professional music industry, announced that it is now shipping MetaJam™, a desktop software application that allows bands and artists to manage and promote themselves, as well as distribute their own music.
Using Broadjam’s proprietary Song-Management System, MetaJam delivers metadata management to independent musicians. Musicians can organize their songs, photos, gigs and events; build their own Website and press kits; and batch upload their music to the Internet. MetaJam also allows musicians to provide potential licensors with their proper information, whether for film, television, advertising or recordingpurposes.
“The feedback on MetaJam—from artists, recording industry executives, retailers and Internet music sites—has been overwhelmingly positive,” said industry veteran and company founder Roy Elkins. “Everyone we’ve shown it to immediately gets it and sees that it successfully addresses a huge needin the music industry.”
MetaJam has a MSRP of $199. The initial product is designed for the Windows platform, with a Macintosh OS version to be released shortly after. For more information about MetaJam, visit www.broadjam.com.
