In this day and age everyone is using music streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music but in this post I’m going to be letting people know of great legal music streaming sites that less people know about but really should use.
1. Slacker Radio
This music site launched in 2007 and is available in the United States and Canada. This site is very similar too Spotify and such but the main difference is all the stations are made by real people and have radio hosts. Personally this is one of my favorites and I have been using it for years and will most likely get a premium membership sometime soon.
This app and website actually launched quite a long time ago as well and is pretty similar to the now shut down service Songza (if people remember what that was). On this service you can’t listen to songs individually but you can create as many stations as you please. I recently rediscovered this app after forgetting about it a few years ago.
Well my final recommendation is for 8tracks which is available in the US and Canada only. This service is actually really cool and unlike others. On this all of the playlists are made by people and you can even make your own and whats neat is you actually upload the songs. Once you upload songs you have previously purchased elsewhere it gets added to your mix which then can be shared with your friends and the playlists almost act like mini radio stations so the artists do get paid from the tracks you upload which makes everyone happy.
I hope you enjoyed learning about these legal music streaming sites and hopefully you sign up and test a few of them and maybe even share them with your friends. If you are interested check out my 8tracks playlist below!
They just announced about one hour ago that country singer Eric Church is coming to Ottawa and going on a North American tour! I really hope I get to go to this concert and right now you can only buy tickets if you have a paid fan membership on his website and I only have the free one 😦 so I guess I will just have to wait until normal sale starts!
If you are a member of his fan club go to http://www.ericchurch.live to get pre-sale tickets!
On the same day that Britney Spears released her new song so did Katy Perry! Her new song is called RISE and is going to be the song for the upcoming RIO 2016 Olympics and it sounds different then other songs by Katy Perry but I actually really like it. Check it out below:
Hey everyone did anyone watch The Grammy’s last night on CBS? I did and I thought it was awesome but I found there was a lot more singing then actually giving out awards to people. One of my favorite performance was Carry Underwood and Sam Hunt together and I also really like watching Gwen Stefani’s live music video, check it out below!
Today Rihanna’s brand new album ANTI came out exclusively on the music streaming service Tidal and lucky for me I have Tidal. I have to say the album is really good and I have listened to it over two times already. If you don’t have Tidal you can sign up for a 30 day free trial and listen to this new album because I think it does not come out on iTunes until next week. ANTI has 13 songs and my favorites are Work ft Drake and Kiss It Better go check out the album on Tidal now: http://listen.tidal.com/album/56677103

So I recently just signed up for Tidal on there 30 day free trial and I have to say its a really good streaming service and I will be renewing my membership after the trial, it is worth it! On Tidal you can watch music videos and listen to music and for only 10$ a month its not that expensive. So I really don’t know why so many people say its to expensive and it sucks when it’s the same price as Spotify and all you hear in the news is “Jay Z music service fails” but really I think it’s doing pretty well for a new service and even Jay Z posted on his twitter that they have over 1,000,000 users. I will definitely be continuing my subscription and if you haven’t signed up yet I really think you should.
I’m starting a brand new thing on my blog. Its called TBT Songs, every Thursday I’m going to post a throwback song on the news feed. And you will also be able to view the songs on the TBT Songs page I’m going to make as a sub-page under Music. TBT Songs starts on Thursday October 22nd.
