StreetBee has acquired JamJunky, a music composition review service. We reviewed the service when it launched three months ago and JamJunky added a Facebook application in July. I described JamJunky as, "Basically JamJunky is a way for you to upload your own authored music and get feedback from your friends and other song writers to help perfect your songs."
The new owners have rebranded JamJunky as "GetYourGrooveOn" and have created an unlimited beta which means you can use the service as much as you would like for free during the beta period.
I asked JamJunky founder James Thomas for his reaction to the sale. He said, "I think this acquisition benefits StreetBee.com/BandNation.com tremendously, as it fills a niche in a demographic they're already involved in. From my perspective, the timing and the price were right. I wish StreetBee/BandNation continued success with GetYourGrooveOn and the rest of their product line." The purchase price was not disclosed. Congrats to all parties involved!

JamJunky, the online music review service we reported on first last month has launched a Facebook app. Looks like a great way to share your musical creations with your network using the hottest networking tool currently online.
The app includes the following for each of your songs:
- Listen Count
- Comment Count
- Date Uploaded

Earlier today JamJunky launched their beta. Check out my video review below. Basically JamJunky is a way for you to upload your own authored music and get feedback from your friends and other song writers to help perfect your songs.
Here is how JamJunky works:
- Upload your song and put in all of the information related to the song
- Send the song to your friends using a special encoded link
- Friends post their comments
- If applicable, you can open the song to the JJ audience for additional comments
- Take in the feedback and think about changes to your song
You can upload notes about the song, lyrics, select a license/copyright formula and whether the song is locked/unlocked. I compare JamJunky to ConceptShare where you can share designs and get feedback. JamJunky is the first service (that I have heard of) where you can solicit feedback on your songs.
