OurStage Launches Pro Membership, Revenue Sharing With Artists, already an innovative leader in online music discovery, is changing the game again with the new OurStage Pro level of membership for artists. For a nominal monthly fee of $2, artists can get paid back for spins of their songs from the OurStage platform – either on the site, or via an embedded player on Facebook or beyond.

This is a major step in the new music economy – a way for working artists to earn revenue in the course of their normal promotion. As artists continue to promote their music via sites that allow free hosting and streaming, they can direct efforts to one central location,, where the plays will add up and count toward OurStage’s monthly revenue sharing (RevShare) payout.

Additional benefits of OurStage Pro currently include an enhanced Facebook app, where fans can judge directly for the artist in OurStage’s competitions without leaving the app, as well as direct-to-artist funding, and additional customizable features.
