AMERICA’S FAVORITE NEW MUSIC SITE CELEBRATES ITS 2ND BIRTHDAY
New music discovery site DAILY UNSIGNED celebrates its second birthday in grand fashion this week; with more featured bands getting record deals and featuring more AMAZING music.
DU is a new music discovery site that caters to the A.D.D personality in all music fans by featuring one new amazing artist per day. These features are vetted via a rigorous process that ensure that only the best of the best make it to the reader. Submissions have been steadily growing via a partnership with Sonic Bids and will often times come via friends and family members. However, the bulk of the findings come from founder, Rob Daily as well as a handful of “scouts”. Each month, you will find Rob Daily scouring the internet listening to on average over 500 artists to find one or two amazing artists. The goal of the site was and never will be, to “get deals”, the goal is to feature the best music and to once again get people excited about new music. Since its inception DU has proudly watched the careers of The Head and the Heart, Walk the Moon , Young Guns and Imagine Dragons blossom and that, according to founder Rob Daily is all that he ever wanted.
Daily Unsigned was born out of frustration two years ago. “I literally would come across bands that were really amazing that I felt the world needed to know about. They had a team in place and I just loved the artist or a song or a video. So instead of turning my back on them, I would start circulating the artist to my friends and finally it got too tedious. So I decided to just develop a website where I could host the information and save myself a bunch of emails.” States founder Rob Daily. All that the site has done since then is go onto to host over 400 artists (of which 70 have gone on to sign record deals), average just under 500,000 hits per month from visitors in over 200 countries, have featured artists appear on Carson Daly, Jimmy Kimmel Live, MTV as well as grace the pages of Rolling Stone, XXL, Billboard and Spin. not bad for a two year old site.
