Treble.fm is an app for music artists who want to collaborate online
Treble.fm is a new app that aims to link musicians, producers and songwriters online.
Just like with AGNT.com, the DJ app we reported on yesterday, Treble allows users to create profile’s showcasing what they are all about, only this expands to musicians looking to jam together.
Artists mark the categories they are expert in (drums, vocals, guitar, etc) and then search for musicians in their location who fit their collaborating needs.
Each profile also has links to the artists’ relevant social accounts like SoundCloud and YouTube where other users can check out their music.
The app also has a bulletin board where users can ‘place ads’ for paid and unpaid work opportunities.
Another quaint feature is that a request to connect is sent before you can talk to an artist; this means that both parties must be interested.
Created by artists, for artists
Its oftentimes tough for musicians to find fellow musicians to collaborate with outside their field of expertise.
As a guitarist, you might know many other guitarists but struggle to find for example saxophonists.
Matt Bond, the app’s founder, acknowledges that they are not the first app to create connections between musicians.
What sets them apart is that they are musicians with tech backgrounds and therefor “understand what other artists are looking for. So, we created a simple and stripped-down experience that just takes those things into account,” Matt says.
Treble is a streamlined service for “the type of people who use their Instagram as a business card.”
Currently the platform boasts around 2000 users who were invited to try out the app in its beta phase.
Treble.fm is now open to the public and is available for free in the App store.
