Thinking about starting a new website where producers/singers can network...

I've been producing music for about three years now and have been faced with the same problem a million times: I've wanted a vocalist to feature on my track, but had no clue where to look for one.

So I guess the problem here is that a lot of intermediate producers want vocalists on their songs and a lot of intermediate vocalists want to find producers for their own songs and/or do features for EDM producers. Unfortunately, their isn't a neutral place to connect the vocalists to the producers.

To solve this I am thinking about creating a website where both vocalists and producers can come to network and connect.

Each person would be categorized as either a vocalist or producer and have their own profile where it includes samples of their music and they can private message each other or exchange information to eventually collaborate.

Anyways, what are your thoughts on this idea? Would you sign up for it?

Re: Thinking about starting a new website where producers/singers can network...

I would give it a try. But the biggest problem will be to get the site "out there", and reach both vocalists and producers. How are you going to advertise this? I mean, everyone can create a basic community. The problem is to get visitors who are active.

I'm not trying to be a dick here and shoot down your idea. I think it's great. But this might be harder than you think.

Sounds like modelmayhem.com but for music.

Re: Thinking about starting a new website where producers/singers can network...

I've always though it would be cool to make a true collab section in this forum, regardless of instrument. A site would be cool too, though. As long as it doesn't cost money and it's got a decent format.

Re: Thinking about starting a new website where producers/singers can network...

Nice idea, I think it could work if you get enough people signed up... obviously doesnt have to happen overnight, you could start off with a few and grow little by little... but as long as its free to use I think people would gp for it. Its free promotion for them if nothing else at the end of the day

If it had an extremely user friendly interface, then definitely. I would probably use it to collab with other producers online.

It'd also be an awesome place to hold no-strings attached remix contests and promote good vibes and constructive criticism between producers and vocalists.

Re: Thinking about starting a new website where producers/singers can network...

cool idea.
just a thought: there might be seriously more producers than vocalists looking for a match, so you might want to open your website with a few "coupled teams" already. or ask a handful of serious vocalists - who commit to provide their services for the first few projects - to sign up even before the launch.

Already exists and growing right now, don't remember the site name, it's for any kind of artist and any kind of relation between them and the public, based on the google map.

There's a good chance we'll be adding this type of "Personnel" section to the upcoming classifieds we're adding soon.
