The AMA Music Agency and FM Communications announce a new business partnership at The Music Show 2012

Under the banner: “We Will Take You To The Next Level”, Mark Downing, Fraser McAlister and the team at AMA, along with independent PR man Freddie Middleton, launched Bandstand.ie at The Music Show at the RDS, Dublin last month.

The Bandstand app allows artists to showcase, sell and share their music on this new unique platform, which through Facebook, grows their fanbases and allows fans to post and share on their walls.  It also links to Twitter, Stumble Upon, Google and many more sites.

Artists’ profiles will feature on Bandstand.ie and across AMA’s network of sites, offering fans exclusive downloads, unique tickets and access to gig information, messaging and a share app button.

The Artist’s Bandstand app will also act as the calling-card for building the profile of a band or solo artist, developing the artists for record labels and publishers while attracting fans, selling music, merchandise and tickets, giving extra value to all the fans, new and old, all along the way.

Together with the app launch, The AMA Music Agency and FM Communications will shortly open a London office to offer both label presentations to A&R people and deal negotiations including publishing.  Established artists who already have music to promote can avail of a complete PR service in London, hitting all the right media. This can be done to attract label interest for those with Irish only or independent and own label releases.  UK gigs and venues will also be booked by AMA.
