Shoudout! Partners LLC, developer of the social music apps Shoudout and Shoudify, has partnered with Block Media Group and its affiliate music label, Independent Ear, to enable a handful of rising music artists to connect with their fans through in-stream shoudouts, while also generating donations for their favorite charities.
With its two apps, which are available for free download on both iOS and Android, Shoudout Partners has introduced a brand new way for people to socially connect by simply recording six second messages which can be heard by their friends and peers in-between songs of their favorite Spotify playlists through Shoudify, or between station skips on Shake Radio, a web based radio search engine incorporated directly into the Shoudout app. The platform is Crowd based, whereby users of the Shoudout app can form shoudout crowds with their friends and thus insure a high degree of relevance for each shoudout dropped.
Through the partnership, Shoudout has developed six “Crowds,” each for a specific artist to connect with his fans, whereby every shoudout dropped into a crowd generates a $1 Shoudout Partners donation to the artist’s charity of choice. The current participating artists and their Crowds are as follows...
Adam Davenport - Actor/EDM Artist - Crowd: Artists for ACLU - Charity: ACLU, which for almost 100 years, has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
