It doesn’t stop there, however; there are now apps and websites where you not only listen, but create and share music too. Here are some of those amazing music platforms that you will absolutely love and wish that you had found sooner!
Spoon is a streaming application that mainly focuses on the social side of music. It is great for people to instantly upload their music, or even to stream live. The purpose is that it makes audio streaming easy and by this you can access, listen and even broadcast using your own smartphone. Music should be self-expressive, which is why this app is amazing because it allows anyone and everyone to be free and show themselves through music easily.
Ableton is a software available to download on a PC or a laptop for producing your own music. It is a digital audio workstation (DAW) that allows you to express yourself. It comes with a huge selection of sounds and samples to allow you to produce high quality music, but you can also download sample packs of your choice and import your own samples. If you want to learn how to produce your own songs, give Ableton a try.
It does what it says on the box; Bandsintown allows you to track where your favorite musicians are playing around the world and see if they are playing near you. It will notify you if your favorite musicians are on tour or playing at any festivals etc. You can also purchase concert tickets from the app itself, which makes it so easy because you can do everything in one place. There is also a RSVP section where you can highlight if you are going to a concert. You can keep this private or make it public. If you go to a lot of gigs and concerts, the RSVP function is great for seeing exactly what events you are going to and when.
Tidal is another streaming app, but with a twist. Tidal boasts high fidelity sound and hi-def video quality, which is how they differ from regular streaming sites and apps. They also feature some original content, along with a huge music and video catalog. If you really care about the quality of the music you listen to, look into streaming on Tidal to see how it differs to any regular streaming app.
Shazam is a vital app to have downloaded on your smartphone. Have you ever been in a store and heard a song playing that you loved? Have you ever been to a party and recognized a song but never found out the name of it? This app has got you covered. You can simply press the Shazam button on the app and within seconds (if the sound quality and volume are acceptable), the song will appear on the screen. It is a great app that will deliver the song to you so quickly, and then will store all of the songs that you have found via the app, so that you won’t forget to download them when you get home.
