Sendbeats.com

Send Beats was created as a means of giving people the opportunity to share their music and creativity with the music world as well as establishing connections with key music industry people. Additionally, they want to encourage musicians, producers, rappers, singers, and fans to communicate and network with one another. Many things that you can expect at Sendbeats.com are: - Regular posting of beat submission and song submission opportunities - Meeting other fellow artists, musicians, beatmakers, and producers for music project collaboration - Regular site visits from A&R representatives, music executives, radio stations, and other media firms who are searching for new talent The cons of the site is that it is fairly new and seems to be limited to only a couple of opportunities. I'd like to see how they develop into the future as the site grows.

Have seen www.songdew.com . It is recently launched but is the best platform in terms of UI and dashboard . The dashboard is neat and clean and helps focus artists on what theyshould be doing to promote the music. and best is that all features are free.

www.soarnation.com

www.soarnation.com allows musicians to sell their music while giving back to a great cause. Get to give is the idea. While you get amazing music a non-profit gets a portion of the sales with no added funds to you or the musicians involved..
