BandPage announced the launch of their BandPage Connect API, widening the reach for musicians on their recently expanded BandPage Everywhere platform. Connect allows artists to instantly integrate their BandPage profile onto several social and music platforms across the web for free, including initial launch partners Wordpress, Guitar Center, Midem Music Festival, PledgeMusic, Conduit Mobile, Earbits, StoryAmp, Tixie, Music XRay, Local Music Vibe, WeDemand and The Social Radio.
With the release of their BandPage Everywhere product, musicians could update their content from one place and publish straight to their website or blog. With the new BandPage Connect API, any online or mobile platform can quickly pull in content once a musician has connected, allowing them to update their profile at any time within BandPage. If one were to add a new tour date, profile picture or update their bio for instance, that change would automatically be reflected on any site that they’ve connected their BandPage profile to.
“There’s a need for a better infrastructure for musicians across the web and we’re laying the pipes to do it,” says BandPage Founder and CEO J Sider. “With BandPage Connect, external sites win because they get up-to-date rich content from musicians, and musicians win because it takes a fragmented ecosystem of sites to manage and pulls it all together.”
The San Francisco-based company has also launched BandPage Connect Center in conjunction with BandPage Connect, where musicians are able to discover new opportunities through Connect’s partners. Examples include setting up a mobile app with Conduit or raising funds for tour through PledgeMusic.
The BandPage Connect API is open for any and all developers to sign up and start using right away on the BandPage Developer Portal.
