See Joe Rock Aims to Connect Emerging Musicians
Feb 4, 2010
See Joe Rock is a community for musicians to connect with other musicians & industry pros who can help their music career. The site was created by Virginia-based designer Mary Adkins after working for years with local musicians and music festivals designing their branding and marketing materials. She noticed that connecting musicians with music industry professionals was not easy, so to help bridge that gap she created See Joe Rock.
Their are many social communities out there for bands, but See Joe Rock focuses on connecting emerging musicians with not only other musicians, but also the industry professionals in various businesses that can actually help take their music career to the next level.
The community welcomes people to the site by inviting them to experience new and emerging artists. Users are able to create a free profile for uploading their songs, videos, photos or even relevant information that one might find on a resume, such as industry-specific skills and past industry experience.
See Joe Rock effectively integrates Facebook and Twitter functions into the experience, among several other convenient features such as a Craiglist-esque music classifieds section and much more. See Joe Rock is a startup showcase demo at TECH cocktail DC 8.
