In a world where social media has given independent artists the ability to market themselves directly to their fan base and new consumers, Instagram has just taken their popular platform a step further into the music release.
“The music community is –– and always has been –– an important part of Instagram. For the past four years, we have become the home for artists big and small –– a place where people across the musical spectrum come to share stories, reveal their creativity and connect directly with fans.
Today we’re launching @music, a new account.”
The highly skilled and sought drummer of the Legendary Roots crew, Questlove is a contributor while former freelance journalist, Alex Suskind, will edit the account.
