Yahoo re-introduces Artist Pages, opens it to music fans

Artist Page in Yahoo! Music

Yahoo has re-launched the all new Artist Pages, a service that aggregates music products and services, music information and content on the Web that includes over 500,000 artists featuring at Yahoo! Music. It was originally a closed service that was limited to proprietary consumption and information offerings.

The new Artists Pages is basically a part of Yahoo! Music that will enlist tour dates, music videos, music downloads, streaming music, editorial content and a lot more stuff for music fans.

“Yahoo! is focused on attracting and engaging the largest online audience and connecting each individual to the people and experiences that matter most to them,” said Jeff Dossett, senior vice president of Yahoo!’s North America Audience Group. “With Yahoo! Music’s Artist Pages, we’re creating a truly open and indispensable music destination that will drive music fans to Yahoo! first on their path to music discovery, experience and purchase.”

With this, Yahoo! touts its service to be the “starting point for music fans”. Artist Pages will be available on Yahoo! Music and will allow users to use the modules offering iTunes, Amazon.com, Last.fm, Rhapsody, Pandora, YouTube and Yahoo! and link themselves to these services.

Also, users will be able to self-publish their own Artist Pages, soon, Yahoo announced. As of now users can create their own content, commerce offerings and customize the service.
