What a difference a couple of years make. When we first reported on it back in 2007, Grooveshark was a hybrid P2P and pay per download music service. Now they’ve added a slick looking streaming service which makes use of all that nice music in a Pandora type model. It’s a nice new feature, although we still love the majestic Spotify, and this is a very crowded space right now. Nevertheless they’ve done it well, and deserve top marks for proving that iterative business models can be done with style.
Music compels all of us–individually, in our own way. It fills our moments, our cars, our movies, and our thoughts. Grooveshark started with one question: how could we be enriched by changing the way we find and listen to music? Our goals: To improve the connection between people and music. To change the music industry in ways they seem so unwilling to consider. To have fun. We have a team of 40 passionate employees who wake up daily to live and work for the music, but what we’re really about is simple: you. We want you to help us grow, get better, and help us help the music. It’s the one thing we can all agree on.
