Daniel Lanois Announces His Own Streaming Music Service Project

Daniel Lanois is getting to the streaming music service game with Uprise.FM, which he says is different because it’s “centred around the artist community.”  I quote:  “Uprise.FM will offer a unique music experience, featuring the rare, unique and live recordings owned by artists that aren’t available on commercial streaming sites. ”

Okay. How so?  Says Daniel

“It’s time for a streaming service that is centred around and driven by the artist community directly. Artists are prolific beyond a new recording every two years. They perform, tour, record, and collaborate constantly. will not only make these rare and unique recordings available, we will ensure that the artists are fairly compensated for this work.”

The site won’t go live officially until sometime next year, but they’ve already started curating material. is offering a grand prize of $10K for the best live/studio take along with a few other prizes.  You have until the end of this month to get something in.
