Sony Tries Amie Street's Variable Pricing But Adds Restrictions

LOS ANGELES (Hypebot) –
Music discovery and download site Amie Street, best known for their fan-driven variable pricing model, will add Sony Music Entertainment to its catalog. Sony becomes the first major label to offer its content through AmieStreet, which was founded 3 years ago in the dorm rooms of Brown University. But unlike most tracks on the site, Sony downloads will be priced at set levels of $.69, $.99 and $1.29 per song.


For the release, Amie Street has created a special section on its website ( http://amiestreet.com/blog/sony ) highlighting just a small sample of the great artists, both old and new, that are now available, including dozens of classic albums.


"Amie Street has proven to be an innovative platform for engaging music fans and introducing them to both emerging and established artists," said Michael Paull, Executive Vice President, Global Digital Business, and Sony Music Entertainment. "We look forward to our music being available to Amie Street's growing community."

"The partnership with Sony Music is a huge development for Amie Street," said Peter Asbill, Co-Founder of AmieStreet.com. "We want to be the best place to discover new music for all types of customers, from indie to mainstream, and adding the unparalleled Sony Music catalog is a critical step towards fulfilling that promise."
