BandPage To Help Musicians Build Fan Communities

I would guess that many music and production artists, digital or not, have taken at least a small amount of time to record and host their files online.  If not for the purposes of sharing, then simply to have has a personal repository.  Since not every DJ and producer is a good visual artist, creating a personal website from scratch is not as easy as pressing record and producing a song.  That is why artists run to websites like Soundcloud or Bandcamp in order to host their files and biography.  It is much easier to have it in a single place without needing to maintain it like a true website.

Of course, once an artist makes a small name for themselves, they will want a personal website and it should be more personal than a Soundcloud profile.  Many DJs and producers will simply opt to pay upfront to have someone else design it – since why should they have to learn Photoshop and html right?  This can actually be more costly than it look, even for a simple page.  Web page designers can charge up to a thousand dollars for their work, not to mention the costs for maintenance and hosting fees.  BandPage was created to simplify the entire process.
