b5media Inc. announced the launch of its new music channel featuring a wide variety of blogs focused on bands, genres and geographical locations. This is b5media’s 14th channel, bringing number of blogs within the network to 230.
“Since b5media first launched in September of 2005, we’ve felt the music scene was being vastly underserved by professional blogs,” said Jeremy Wright, b5media’s CEO. “We believe that by bringing together thought leaders in the music space, new music bloggers and plain old music phreaks that we can provide a real place where music lovers from around the world can find bands, music, reviews and content they’ll love!”
The music channel portfolio, headed by channel editor Mike Laba, features blogs focused on genres such as the metal, jazz, blues, industrial and crooner scenes, as well as hotspots such as Nashville, the U.K. and Australia.
As part of the music channel’s launch, b5media is giving away three iPod Shuffles, three Memorex MP3 players pre-loaded with MusicIP’s kick-ass music discovery software, and three $25 iTunes certificates.
