The RIAA and NARM, the music business association, recently debuted Whymusicmatters.com, a one-stop educational resource for fans about the many authorized digital music services and online retailers in today’s marketplace.
Whymusicmatters.com’s main feature is a fan-friendly music finder “grid” for learning about the 50+ (and growing) service options available in the United States, with the ability to click through to the sites themselves for quick and easy access. The music finder includes services like mp3 download stores, audio and video streaming sites, mobile phone offerings, digital radio, retailers selling CDs and LPs online, and more.
Based on original work done by industry colleagues at the BPI in the United Kingdom, the U.S. website also includes videos about the value of music highlighting the work and lives of artists such as Robert Johnson, Louis Armstrong, Jay-Z, Janis Joplin, Kate Bush, Thin Lizzy, and others.
