No one ever said being in a band is easy. But the era of social media has ushered in a new degree of responsibilities for music groups, and with that, more challenges.
This is the issue that Travis Morrison and Travis Donovan are seeking to solve with their new service, Shoutabl. It gives bands a way to host and manage a website, social media accounts and e-commerce channel on one platform.
Morrison and Donovan are both musicians and former employees of the Huffington Post. Morrison’s band The Dismemberment Plan releases its first album in 12 years on Oct. 15 (stream it on NPR Music). The band’s website and social profiles have served as a testing ground for Shoutabl.
