bBooth, Inc. Launches First-to-Market Fan Engagement Experience Through Its Video-Sharing App Songstagram (Soon-to-Be-Named 'kord')

Unprecedented, Targeted Fan Engagement and Monetization Opportunities for Artists; First Featured Artist is 2015 Grammy-Nominated Singer Angie Fisher; More Coming

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - March 12, 2015) - bBooth, Inc. (OTCQB:BBTH) announces today it has introduced new features in its app Songstagram, soon-to-be rebranded as 'kord', that provide all music artists with new and additional monetization opportunities through its unique fan engagement features now available.

Built on a robust social media platform with state-of-the-art, proprietary messaging and video-sharing technology, Songstagram/kord provides a unique experience to both consumers and artists alike. Instead of just listening, fans can interact with the music of their favorite artists. Users can record and share up to four and a half minutes of their own versions of their favorite songs or add their favorite artists' music to videos they already have on their iOS and Android mobile devices, and/or Mac and Windows desktop computers.

For artists and other content creators, fan engagement and monetization opportunities are unprecedented. With Songstagram/kord, artists no longer have to pay monthly storage fees just so their fans can listen to their music. With Songstagram/kord, artists can upload all their content with no monthly fees. In addition, all artists get their own built-into-the-app store where they can actually sell their content, including merchandise directly to their fan base. Now for the first time, artists can communicate directly with the fans that are consuming their music. The app allows artists to deliver unique targeted messages directly to their fans, offering local performance schedules, merchandise opportunities, and other fan engagement.

The first artist to be launched under the newly enhanced app is 2015 Grammy-nominated singer Angie Fisher, whose song "I.R.S." was nominated recently for 'Best Traditional R&B Performance'. Angie let the Songstagram cameras 'come along for the ride', capturing her entire Grammy experience. To get the full video (dropping April 1st) and to listen and interact with her songs, download Songstagram.

"It's no secret that the music industry is facing challenges," states Rory J. Cutaia, CEO of bBooth. "Artists no longer earn what they deserve for the art that they create and everyone else enjoys. We're changing that right now. Direct fan engagement is how artists can recover the revenue they lost when digital downloads disrupted the compact disc business. Our platform is truly win-win for artists and consumers." The app is now available on The App Store and Google Play.
