As a team of music obsessed entrepreneurs, visual creatives, and photography enthusiasts, we see a massive opportunity to make music streaming more experiential and engaging, through a visual layer.

We believe that improving the way people creatively and emotionally connect to and through music, will improve lives and result in an economically healthier music industry.

It excites us most that we're fostering visual creative expression around music in a vital, artistic way.

To do so, we are transforming music streaming from something most people do passively with divided attention – to an active, engaging, and participatory experience.

For paid subscribers of Spotify (and soon to add Apple Music, Deezer, and others), Snapwave replaces the typical static album cover, with dynamic user generated photo-stories, anchored around any song.

The image content is fueled by Snapwave's user community and recording artists alike – enabling artists to connect with their fans in new ways.

The core feature we're launching with during our beta is Music-Photo Challenges. There are creative photo contests anchored around a song, which artists host, and fans participate in to earn rewards and exposure.

We can't wait to hear what you think of Snapwave and to see what you create!

@dblut7 I will do that for sure but how do I put a picture on Snapwave for a song that part confuses me
And as a photographer I am looking to get my work shown in unique ways so this is great for me
