Musicians want to make music, fans want to hear it, and Brite Revolution is a subscription-based music download site that brings it all together. For the musicians, the benefit is obvious. Recording artists who team up with Brite can get noticed by a growing group of influential music aficionados and make money for the tunes that they create. Brite subscribers, meanwhile, get access to new and unreleased songs from their favorite artists, along with tour updates, band news, interviews, and music video releases that are oftentimes not available anywhere else.
Before you can start taking advantage of Brite’s musical offerings, you’ll have to sign up and subscribe. There are no hidden fees, and for $4.99 a month you will get access to every song the website offers. Every artist on Brite has been hand selected, and in order to take part they must agree to release at least one previously unreleased song or sound recording to subscribers each month. Once the song has become available online, users have two months to download it to their hard drive before it disappears from the site. And for users who aren’t really sure what they like, the website offers a “similar artists” feature that helps you discover new talent based on your current preferences and taste.
Making Brite Revolution even more unique is the fact that 10% of the money the company makes from subscriptions each month is donated to non-profit groups selected by both the site’s subscribers and the artists themselves. For true music lovers who are more interested in supporting individual artists than major corporations, Brite Revolution is a must-see website.
