Indie is a music discovery platform that partners with media outlets to help engage their audiences socially and get new artists discovered.

Indie has a gamified experience powered by AI that rewards the artists that submit their tracks with feedback generated from the Facebook audience of the media outlet.

The audience has a cool new way to discover music and build a reputation as someone that knows good music.

Artists submit their songs through a Facebook Messenger application which is then voted on by the audience who also provide text and video feedback. Each month the winner is chosen for an onstage performance from the leaderboard.
