Independent Music Artists Team Up With Indie Music Idol Contest

New Digital Marketplace for Truly Independent Music Artists Promotes and Sells Their Library of Songs

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Yoogli, Inc., a software technology company with breakthroughs in semantic search technology and the digital music marketplace, announced Sunday at the Western Hip Hop Convention in Anaheim, Calif., the launch of Indie Music Idol, the Internet music contest dedicated to independent music artists and emerging bands.

"We have created an open marketplace where people can buy and sell songs," said Nick Ferrall, Co-founder of Indie Music Idol. "The barriers for entry into the music industry have been flattened, and because of this, more independent music is being created and consumed than ever before. Emerging artists need tools to navigate these new waters, and having control over the distribution of their own content is the key."

Indie Music Idol is Yoogli Music's special promotion to showcase the talent of truly independent music artists that have uploaded their music, photos, and videos onto the website. Visitors to www.IndieMusicIdol.com vote for their favorite artists, purchase songs, and learn music news and events through a social network of other music enthusiasts.

Added Ferrall, "Our passion at www.IndieMusicIdol.com is to give artists a venue to both publicize and sell their music without the trappings of a record label. Registration for the contest runs through June 15, at which time the voting will begin. Voting will end on June 30, when the new Indie Music idol will be announced. The winner will be decided by the community by votes and showcased in national media, as well as www.YoogliMusic.com."

The Indie Music Idol artist page feature allows bands to increase exposure and market their music by creating their own profile and connect with fans personally. Personal playlist generation takes only a matter of seconds and can be uploaded into the buyer's digital library collection without any hassle.

The patented music search engine acquires enough information from the individual's digital music collection to build song and artist recommendation lists, according to their mood and distinctive tastes in music. Then users can share these playlists with their friends and collaborate in building up artist profiles to help promote the music and bands they enjoy, making www.IndieMusicIdol.com a unique music experience for all.
