The extreme void of useful on-line services for bands has been very frustrating to say the least. Ever since mySpace stopped innovating and started its march towards inevitable demise, I’ve been expecting someone to notice and take action. When nothing earth shattering came from the mobile revolution, the doubts settled in that the musicians weren’t going to benefit from it any time soon. And while we still may have to wait for a truly disruptive on-line service, there are few new, important examples of what Internet can offer for bands and musicians.
The first one we will take a look at is called Onesheet. It is by far the simplest on-line tool for musicians seeking to establish a central web-presence for a band. At it’s core, OneSheet sports a clean, modern and appealing design that let’s you connect to your existing services such as: Facebook, Twitter, or Soundcloud. It integrates with those services to pull your photos, videos, tweets and wall posts to create a media rich, beautiful web hangout for your band.
There are two plans to chose from, one completely free with tons of features and seond one – a pro-account that for about $10/month will let you add further customization and branding to your OneSheet.
Time will tell how effectively bands will use this service, but it’s great to see an innovative approach to on-line services for bands that go beyond generic Facebook and Twitter.
