Our mission is to empower musicians and to discover the best independent music. As a grass-roots community, we take pride in being the best place for rising musicians to get feedback and exposure, exchange ideas, find new fans, and further their careers. Our long-term ambition is to reform the way music is discovered and promoted. Consumers today are wondering why they can’t get music for cheaper without getting sued by the record labels, and musicians need new ways to get their music heard. Using a new model to discover and promote the best songs, Garageband will bring consumers more musical variety at lower costs while letting musicians retain more control of their careers.
