Songdrop Keeps All Your Streamed Music in One Place
The Internet is like one big record collection. A ginormous collection that's scattered all over your house. To help music lovers organize the tunes they stream online, London-based entrepreneurs Brittney Bean, James Towers, and Richard Taylor have founded Songdrop. The newly launched web app (coming soon to mobile) lets users “bookmark” and share music from various sources like YouTube, Vevo, Soundcloud, and blogs. Users collect tracks via the Chrome extension or cross-browser bookmarklet and create playlists that can be shared within Songdrop or on Facebook and Twitter.
“We believe the API for music already exists: it's the whole Internet. Songdrop is a way to make sense of the chaos,” says Bean.
Songdrop recently completed its first round of funding and hired former EMI Music Publishing exec Chris Helm as finance director. Additionally, Songdrop plans to partner with brands and media companies that need help establishing an identity through music and reaching new audiences.
