Roadrunner Records is recently launched SignMeTo Roadrunner Records, a dynamic new free service that mimics the actual A&R process using social networking tactics.
SignMeTo is a fun and functional way for fans and unsigned bands to participate in the music industryâ€™s A&R process. Users begin by signing up as â€œscouts,â€ and unsigned bands create their own profiles, which scouts then rate and tag. The band profiles offer comprehensive functionality, with bands being able to upload photos, video, music and tour dates. For added convenience, artists and managers are able to use one dashboard to control multiple profiles.
Scouts then peruse the site and rate and review bands, which impact SignMeTo charts, which refresh daily or weekly by genre. The more each scout interacts with the site, the more weight their opinions carry. New charts are formed as users spread new tags, with genres expanding from the very simple â€œAlternativeâ€ or â€œRockâ€ all the way to more complex genres like â€œRussian Death Metal.â€ Besides other chart incentives, bands can also earn badges, some of which are bestowed by real Roadrunner A&R staff.
