Earlier this month, we were thrilled to read an interview between Chris Robley of CD Baby/DIY Musician and solo pianist Michele McLaughlin in which McLaughlin says, “the AMP tools have been a fantastic resource for promoting shows, growing exposure for specific songs, and tracking my overall listeners, spins, stations, etc.” She continued, “I use them all the time and I’m a firm believer that an artist needs to actively work to grow their streaming following.” She also said of Pandora, “The exposure has been phenomenal, and the spins I get through Pandora have been career altering for me,” and “If you ask my fan base where they heard my music for the first time, the majority of them will say ‘Pandora.’”

We on the AMP team spend a lot of time thinking about how we can be good partners to the artist community. Sometimes that has us huddled around a whiteboard talking about new tools or AMP features. Sometimes we’re huddled in a conference room answering your questions or going through your feedback. Other times, we’re not huddled anywhere, but rather out in the world meeting with you face-to-face at conferences and events. No matter where we are, nothing makes us happier than hearing about the positive impact that Pandora and AMP have had on artists’ careers.
At the end of the day, we love artists and the music they make. Keep composing, keep creating, and when the time come to release what you’ve recorded, don’t forget that we’re here for you to support your releases with marketing campaigns on Pandora AMP.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions or feedback by emailing AMP-Support@pandora.com or via the Intercom chat feature in AMP.
