After the merger of BuzzMedia and Myspace Music, PureVolume is the only music website that is run by independent entrepreneurs. The company was founded in 2011 by Nate Hudson, Mitchell Pavao and Brett Woitunski. Its users included artists like Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, and many others. Since then, the company has grown into a successful and well-known online music community. Currently, PureVolume is the second most visited music website in the U.S.
Originally, PureVolume was a platform for indie labels to promote new artists. The platform’s weekly “PurePicks” showcased the latest and greatest music. Gym Class Heroes and Fueled by Ramen Records were two of the first artists discovered on the website. However, the music service shut down in June 2018 due to declining revenue and a lack of funding. Now, the site is still active.
The company’s success has been credited to the success of its social networking platform. The site promotes new artists and allows them to promote their music. Each profile features a short bio, a photo, and music for streaming. Many of these artists also make their tracks available for free download, which helps boost their popularity. Fans of PureVolume can also create profiles and engage with the artists and their fans. The company has received accolades from numerous publications.
Another major advantage of PureVolume is its tech stack. This is a key factor for success in the music industry. Compared to most music platforms, PureVolume is free to join, and a basic artist membership is available for free. There are paid subscription options, which include six-month and yearly access. A month’s worth of a free membership will get you a ton of exposure on the site.
