1What is PhillyNotes? How does it work?

PhillyNotes is a place for musicians of all genres to meet, collaborate and market their music. Artists and Bands can fill their pages with songs, videos, bios and information about their upcoming gigs. Fans are able to access their favorite Artists' and Bands' pages and can interact with their content. Artists and Bands are searchable via their respective tabs in the dropdown menu.

2What types of accounts are there?
  • Fan
    A free account. Fans are able to view the pages of the Artists and Bands that they are following.
  • Artist
    A singular person, be it a singer, instrumentalist or songwriter. This account is for someone who is looking to showcase their individual talents and collaborate with others. The Artist account is developed to be searchable by instrument, so that you can build a band if you want to!
  • Band
    This account is built for established bands that are looking to expand their network and gain access to potential new venues, radio stations and audiences.

*Please Note that free Fan accounts can follow bands and artists, but do not have a front-facing profile. You also cannot have two different account types with the same user. If you have a Fan account and would like to sign up for an artist or band account, you can sign up with a new email address or simply close your Fan account and go to the memberships page to sign up for one of our premium accounts.
