What is happening with Steemsongs?

Today I spent a few hours with the web designer working on Steemsongs (please follow @steemsongs).

As well as functionality to allow any artist to display their releases and charge a certain amount of SBD/Steem per release we also hope to display any posts from that artist/band that fall within the last 7 days. Your vested Steem Power will also allow you to own the music by simply up voting a determined number of a particular artists posts.

This project is designed for fun and to provide a way for people to spend their Steem and SBD without cashing out to other currencies. To that end we plan to distribute 100% of earnings back to the artists.

To help @Steemsongs monetise we will post features on artists that have uploaded music to the site. This leaves the artist free to create their own posts and sell their own music without us taking a cut.

Idea: a way to be able to upvote to own?

I DON'T know if this is a feature yet, but it would be cool if you could upvote a certain percentage according to your SP, so that way you can keep your SBD. The artist still gets paid, and the music is pretty much still as free as streaming services.

IDK just an idea.

I plan to use this service, so definitely keep me updated.

Hey cant wait for this!, been waiting for a while! :D

I know. But unlike todays culture of release and ICO immediately I'm actually trying to put thought into this.

·
·
56

Cool dude!, i bet it will worth the wait... Seems good so far... :)

54

so artists can upload albums there? I have friend who is trying to promote his albums (country music)

·
67
  ·  last month

Yes, absolutely. But it will be part two of the roll out.

·
·
54
  ·  last month

ok thanks, I will follow the updates

·
·

when do you expect that to happen?

·
·
25
  ·  last month

We'd certainly be interested in this happening. We already post songs to youtube/facebook and other places. Some are Creative Commons so they're already free to share and remix. :)

You can use the #steemradio-country and #steemradio-music to promote your music!

Great initiative. I'll add a link to this new post to my next Steemit Open Mic post to get the word out. Also will Tweet it and add it to the new Steemit Musicians Facebook page and Discord channel as well as the @music-trail. Thanks for doing this project. It's a great idea!

thanks @sulev !

Very excited for this. Resteemed and ready to participate as soon as it's open.

It would be nice to have a licensing functionality so we can use the work in videos, blogs, advertisements, content, etc.

·
67
  ·  last month

I agree but it is a much later step that will be an add on. It's not core functionality. It might even better for Steemsongs content to be represented by a third party licensing company... will think more on this.

45
  ·  last month

This looks great! Can't wait to discover some new artists!

39
  ·  last month

Sounds great, I wasn't expecting that when I signed up. As a songwriter, I'm definitely keen to participate.

26
  ·  last month

Awesome! very I excited to see this come to fruition. Will users also have the option to download music?

·
67
  ·  last month

This will be the only functionality. It is not a streaming service.

·
·
52
  ·  last month

Will streaming become a part of it at some point?

·

As a musician, I'm really excited about this :)

We are getting ready to do a wide launch of the Steemit Local Music Society on Discord, which will hopefully be the one umbrella for all things Steemit-original music content. We would love for you to be a part of our team, and could potentially accommodate your project within the server channel however you would like it accommodated, as well.

Please get in touch with me on Discord or Steemit.chat and let's talk. Big things are in the works to unify the musical communities across all genres, we have a great team of folks working on the project.

This is sick! I was just thinking that Steem will probably be the first use case for musicians earning with crypto in real-time! I am so happy to see this. I have a lot of unreleased music I'd be interested in participating. :)

Have you uploaded any of your music on Steem yet?

·
·
31
  ·  last month

I can upload released music, any suggestions on how to work with Steemsongs?

·
·
·
49
  ·  last month

No, but I followed them to keep being informed. Would you like @leelektrik to feature you in an article?

·
26
  ·  last month

I think musicoin is doing something similar

·
·
67
  ·  last month

@steemsongs is for the steem blockchain and for steemit users.

·

You're absolutely correct with this buddy, such a great idea and could work really well if people hear about it and et involved! :)

Didn't know you could do that... I have been posting my Songs like this..

This sounds very awesome.
Will def. want to use this!

51

This is a great idea and will be helpful to smaller artists to share their music. There is so much good stuff out there that is never heard!

43
  ·  last month

Patiently awaiting this launch! Will you have separate genre tabs or just a diverse portfolio of how the artist submitted?

·
67
  ·  last month

Initially it will be hand picked set of artists and no genre tab. You make a good point - once anyone can upload we will need to divide up by genres.

37
  ·  last month

This is amazing!! Steem music really needs something like this :D Let's make it happen!

25

Yesss! I would love to see a music sharing and promoting community here on steemit surrounding this.

I'm a new steemer but if anyone else produces, remixes, DJs or is just into electronic/EDM music shoot me a follow and I'll do the same. I have some cool stuff to share and I'm sure you do too.

Nice job!
Upvoted, followed and re-steemed :)

This is an absolutely brilliant idea! This will help progress everyone involved! - we love the idea and will be getting involved as a label with this and we will be informing and urging our artists to get involved too!

Respect! 👊🏼 - we have given you a follow to keep updated. :)
