Fan Powered Music (FPM) Launches Fan-Driven, Ad-Supported Streaming Platform And Gaming Hub With Thousands Of Tracks

October 1, 2018 – Fan Powered Music (FPM), a new music service dedicated to building community between fans and artists, has opened its innovative, ad-supported music streaming service and gaming hub to the public with a launch catalog of over 6,000 tracks and growing. All recommendations on FPM are driven by fan interactions rather than paid placements, ensuring that all artists get the chance to have their music heard by fans of their genre. Meanwhile, artists can take advantage of new opportunities to make money through sales of automatically generated song-specific challenges in FPM’s library of games, which also provides an entirely new way to communicate with and engage their listeners.

“In addition to putting artists’ music in front of new listeners who are predisposed to enjoy it, we give creators the chance to engage their fans’ competitive spirit to drive discovery and bring in significant revenue through sales of automatically generated song challenges in our library of mobile games,” said Christopher “CJ” Starke, President of FPM. “It’s a fun way to spread the word about your favorite band, something you’re probably doing anyway!”

“Music is supposed to be fun and engaging, and that concept is at the heart of FPM,” said Melissa Mazza, Vice President of Product at FPM. “Whether powering your favorite band to the top of the charts, competing with others to become an artist’s #1 fan, or playing games based on your top tracks, FPM leverages the spirit of competition to create a music community built around mutual interests and, of course, entertainment.”

Fans can help artists reach new listeners via Promos, a 20-second song clip that plays after every third track on FPM’s ad-supported streaming service. After signing up, artists upload their music and select a song they would like to Promo. Fans select up to three artists to “power” on the service, and those acts receive points whenever a fan plays, likes, shares, or comments on any song. When the artist earns enough points to climb to the top of their genre’s Promo Queue, a 20-second clip of their track is played for a new listener who is a fan of that genre. If they choose to listen to the full song, or if they like it, share it, or comment on it, the artist receives even more points. After each Promo play, the song cycles back to the bottom of the queue until it earns enough points to reach the top again. FPM is also the only platform that ensures tracks do not lay dormant once they have been uploaded to its library, with each Promo’d track receiving at least one point each day regardless of fan interaction so that they never stop being introduced to new listeners. Fans can watch their favorite artists climb the queue in real time with the Fancast feature, which also keeps track of how many points they are generating for their powered artists and includes fan rankings.

FPM also features multiple free games that users can download and play on their cell phones, including FPM Hits, FPM Pop, FPM Surf, FPM Dance, FPM Ski, and FPM Rocks. When an artist uploads a song, its length, lyrics, and other metadata are used to automatically create a song-specific challenge in each game that fans can purchase for $1.29 each. This opens new opportunities for artists, who can host weekly social media challenges to both drive sales, earning significant revenue, and nurture fan engagement, driving further discovery. Artists can also sell permanent downloads of their tracks for $0.99 each and receive royalties from ad-supported streaming plays. Revenue is split between the artist, labels, publishers, and FPM.
