Sellaband is talking up its service as the perfect community for band lovers. Unsigned acts can create a SellaBand profile and upload three tracks for free. They must then persuade fans to join the service. If the fans like an act, they can choose to ‘buy into’ them for $10 (£5).
- Share your band’s music with your fans and a wider audience online
- In with a chance of getting a chance to record and distribute your own album
The site aims to help up-and-coming bands raise £25,000 – enough to pay the studio, recording and marketing fees for an album, and start a band on the road to megastardom. Adverts are stitched on to the free downloads and profits are split 50:50.
