Pandora AMP provides a trove of data and insights to all 125,000-plus artists played on the service. Derived from tens of billions of hours of personalized listening, it has the potential to help artists with many critical decisions such as tour routing, single selection, set lists, audience targeting and more.
Updated daily, examples of the insights available on Pandora AMP include:
- Song-by-song performance information, including total spins and number of thumbs up
- Number of unique fans that have created a station for each artist
- Detailed geographic and demographic breakdowns of each artist’s audience
- An interactive heat map showcasing where an artist’s music is attracting an audience across the United States
Insights on Pandora AMP, powered by The Music Genome Project, provide a lens into the company’s immense data, collected since its launch more than nine years ago. With more than 76 million listeners tuning in on average for over 20 hours each month, it gives artists access to the single largest source of music engagement in the United States.
The scale of this audience has important implications not only for established acts but also for the tens of thousands of working musicians who have never enjoyed the support of broadcast radio – over 80 percent of the artists on Pandora do not receive any airtime on terrestrial radio. With AMP, Pandora has created an easy-to-use and actionable tool for all musicians.
Ben Singer, manager of singer-songwriter Andy Grammer said, "This is a total game changer for us. Our research shows us that the majority of Andy's fans consume music on Pandora. To have access to these analytics will only help us better serve his fans as the music industry continues to evolve."
Starting today, AMP is available to all artists currently playing on Pandora. Artists can sign up for the service at http://amp.pandora.com and follow the latest news about AMP on Twitter @PandoraAMP.
