Playlist 7

ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for more than 500,000 artists, labels, managers and venues has announced the launch of a new music discovery program called Playlist 7 sponsored by Microsoft Windows. The program will showcase emerging artists from the rock, pop, alternative, hip-hop, latin, jazz, and electronica/dance genres. Music fans from around the world will choose 7 artists each week to appear in ‘Playlist 7’ and receive additional promotion and cash compensation.

“The fans get free music from up and coming artists every week, plus they get to decide which Artists make it to the top of Playlist 7,” said Lou Plaia, vice president of Artist Relations at ReverbNation. “The artists get exposure and cash compensation every step of the way. Everybody wins with Playlist 7.”

How It Works:

During each week of the program, 50 songs from emerging Artists will be made available for free download at Music fans will be able to download 7 free songs of their choice from the pool of fifty. Each download will act as a ‘vote’ for the Artist. The 7 Artists who receive the most downloads during each week will receive an additional cash prize and will have their song featured and promoted the following week inside of ‘Playlist 7’.

“Windows’ generous sponsorship of this program means that more emerging Artists will be heard as well as compensated for their art,” said Jed Carlson, co-founder and chief operating officer of “It’s a great way to bring bands and brands together for mutual benefit.”

    I think this is an excellant tool for the Artist looking for exposure and new fans; however, what about the Artist who are not in those Genres mentioned above. I happen to be in the Christian/Gospel genre although my CD is a mixture of R&B, Jazz and Contemporary – so where do I fit in?

    I love Reverbnation and we have been around for a couple of years but I am
    struggling to understand how it’s fair that I consistently get a few new fans, have
    hecka widget hits & song plays and a band equity that dips. THAT IS CRAZY !!

    Love yall,
    DAHN B

    I clicked on the Playlist 7 link above for more info and it took me to UFC 118 Results on RN. As an artist, I’ve received no other information concerning Playlist 7. What gives?

    We would love it even more if we were able to get our playlist capable to that of our forum with [IMG] [/ IMG] strings so it would play our artists and musicians that we are currently promoting. So far, I personally do not like it because it does not play automatically when you set it to play automatically and it’s annoying trying to figure out this PLAYLIST 7 and as a promoter, street teamer and marketing venue for these awesome talents — I do not see the ease of it or the excitement — I find it difficult and annoying!!
