It’s been a long time comin’
It’s goin’ to be a long time gone.
Long Time Gone Copyright 1968 David Crosby
I have some exciting news to share with Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN) fans and Apple iPad digital music enthusiasts. CSN and Contendis, Inc. have released the first subscription-based iPad app for a recording artist to be approved for sale in the Apple App Store.
It is all about the digital distributed platform these days. Take a look at how Spotify has designed and distributed the open cloud music platform. This has revolutionized music globally. Contendis is developing and managing platforms for the music and media industries. Their platform will ease direct-to-fan interaction and creates new revenue stream opportunities for artists.
What is admirable about this app announcement is CSN’s savvy marketplace timing. Apple announced today a revitalized Apple iPad line with the introduction of the Apple iPad Mini and the Apple iPad Retina Display 4th Generation tablets. What better way to enjoy this exciting high-resolution digital content than with a new iPad?
“Use this app as an open door to our music,” says Graham Nash. “And, as usual, when one door closes-another one opens…enjoy exploring.”
Fans will experience dynamic and ever-growing content in the CSN app’s four unique rooms-“The Attic,” “The Studio,” “The Road,” and “The Living Room“-as well as a custom store for special merchandise. In addition to in-depth content spotlighting CSN, the app will explore the histories and music of the bands that David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash were members of prior to joining together as a trio in 1969-The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, andThe Hollies, respectively.
Apple iPad owners can download and install the Official Crosby, Stills, and Nash App from Contendis on Apple iTunes.
