Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

We7.com is a free, legal way to share music online.

We7.com is a free, legal way to share music online.

Believe it or not, there are some free, legal ways to share music online. We7.com attaches personalised adverts to the beginning of songs. The brainchild of ex-Genesis member Peter Gabriel, entrepreneur Steve Purdham and financial expert John Taysom, the service uses MediaGraft’s patent-pending technology to provide free and DRM-free downloads. Ad deals last for up to four weeks. They target people based on age, gender and location, and play when consumers are on or offline.

  • Legally download free MP3 files
  • Fans’ reviews get new artists published

As well as offering tracks by signed musicians, the site aims to act as a platform for unsigned acts. We7’s ‘TasteMaker community’ of artists, band members and fans review new artists to determine whether they’re good enough to be published. Listener reviews earn artists the right to have their music downloaded from the site.
