In a previous post, “Great Facebook Bandpages with RootMusic and ArtistData” I explain how I made my Facebook fan page for The Horrorist so pretty. Last night J Sider the CEO of RootMusic did a live walk through of their service on Ustream which I have embedded above. If you have used the service please leave a link to your Facebook fan page in the comments so I can check out your design and music.
“J Sider, our CEO, is going to demo how to set up and optimize a BandPage. He’ll start from scratch and give you the inside scoop on all the new features so you can get the most out of your BandPage.” – RootMusic

I’ve never set up a Facebook Fanpage for my own music (The Horrorist). When I originally joined Facebook it was reluctantly because MySpace was still a living community and it seemed redundant. To top it off the music features in Facebook were seriously lacking. Two external services, one which ties into Soundcloud have changed my mind.
RootMusic helps you design a proper “Bandpage”. It pulls your music from SoundCloud and allows you to make something actually album cover like. In other words your not stuck in tiny font slash baby blue Facebook land. RootMusic also easily pulls in Vimeo, Youtube videos, photos from your Fanpage, and your Twitter and RSS feeds.
Lastly, it has integration with ArtistData. ArtistData takes your show dates and puts them all over your social media sites (Facebook, MySpace, Eventfull…) so you don’t have to do the repetitive task yourself.
