BOSTON, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, BandFrame™ debuted an interactive online home for musicians at www.BandFrame.com. Combining a sleek, magazine-style layout with an intuitive interface, BandFrame™ delivers a powerful suite of web design tools that enable musicians to create a highly-customizable web space in minutes, with no formal web experience needed.
Founded by three Berklee College of Music alumni, BandFrame™ offers bands, solo artists, sidemen, educators, film scorers, producers, recording engineers and more a unique platform on which to build or enhance their web presence. Users can organize a bio, audio, video, tour dates, social feeds and other storytelling assets into a page that captures their personality and brings their musical style and experience to life.
"In today's fast-paced music industry, the key to capturing attention is through clear, convenient, and eye-catching communication," said Mike Blong, Co-Founder of BandFrame™. "BandFrame™ provides musicians – regardless of scale – with a platform to effectively manage their web presence, promote their careers, connect with audiences and discover likeminded artists."
Designed with both the musician and viewer in mind, the site's high-quality customization tools, including colors, textures, fonts and graphics, enable musicians of all genres to build a focused, professional website. Although each BandFrame™ maintains core design and formatting features, artists can use real-time editing tools to create, update and adapt the design aspects of their page to match the distinctiveness and quality of their sound. The site, which is mobile-friendly and optimized for all major web browsers, provides viewers with an equally tailored and satisfying experience.
There are no design, setup, or hosting fees, and accounts are subscription-based, with both free (BandFrame BASIC) and paid (BandFrame PRO) plans available. BASIC accounts include a cover photo, biography, playlists for live listening, social media icons and booking and contact information. PRO accounts, which cost $8.99 per month, incorporate all of the BASIC features as well as video, show dates and real time social media integration; photo and newsfeed sections are coming soon.
BandFrame™, which has been in beta for the past year, already boasts a roster of established, nationally-touring musicians. To browse all artists or to sign up, visit www.bandframe.com. Watch a demo video here, and visit Facebook.com/BandFrame to join the music-inspired conversation.
