Monstro Launches Music Site for Search, Discovery and Sharing - Anytime, AnywhereMonstro Brings the Power of Social Media to Music Search, Taps Into Leading Music Catalogs and Provides Revolutionary Listening Choice (February 13, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/12 -- Monstro, (www.themonstro.com) a new music site that captures all music shared on Twitter to discover new songs and new friends, launched today at the SF MusicTech Summit. Monstro adds a new dimension to discovering music via social media by connecting people, globally, and allowing anyone to share music and listen whenever and however they'd like.
"Two of the key trends disrupting the music industry right now are anywhere access and new forms of music discovery, especially via social media," said David Card, Research Director of GigaOM Pro. "Monstro is definitely on-trend."
Search and Discover Music
Monstro searches across multiple online music stores and captures all the music shared on Twitter in real time to offer an unprecedented online music library to its users. In doing so, Monstro gives people access to new and undiscovered music every day. Because Monstro is platform agnostic, it doesn't matter what channel or service (Pandora, iTunes, Spotify, etc.) people use to share music. Monstro is an ideal music site for the social media age because it filters the noise.
Share Music with Your Social Network
People share music around the clock, and Monstro captures those shares in real time. Monstro shows what's trending in real time and music shared by friends and others. When users find a song they like, they can let their friends know by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or Pinterest.
Claim Your Page and Tune In
Anyone who has ever shared music on Twitter already has a Monstro page waiting for them. Each person's page lists all the music they have shared on Twitter and a playlist is automatically created. Monstro also creates playlists from your friends' music, favorite artist or chart. With Monstro's integration to Rdio and YouTube, playlists can be listened to or watched anywhere, anytime.
Personalize your social mix even more by tuning out friends with dissimilar taste and tune in to music being shared by people with similar taste. On Monstro people continue to discover music, new and old.
"Monstro fundamentally changes how people discover and share music worldwide," said Terry Goertz, co-founder and co-CEO, Monstro. "It is no longer tied to where or how you listen."
"Until now, the Internet has been all about sharing music. Sharing is great but there's another step -- discovery," said co-founder and co-CEO Jeff Fedor. "Monstro is like having a whole network of great DJs offering their personal playlists to the world."
In addition, artists can also use Monstro to discover true fans that share their music. Signing up is easy; simply allow Monstro to see who you follow on Twitter. The service is free.
Monstro is the first music site to unleash the power of Twitter for music search, music sharing and music discovery. Monstro captures all the music shared on Twitter, identifies that music in leading catalogs and automatically creates and updates playlists of the music you, your friends and favorite artists share. Monstro connects music tweets to the top music stores and services. Monstro only links to legal and legitimate music sources. Monstro is a product of ParkVu, Inc.
