Youtube – the next MTV?

March 18, 2010 · Posted in Electronic Music 

YouTube has introduced a new program for musicians – the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) for musicians, aka Musicians Wanted.

We’re inviting thousands of artists who made the trek to Texas — and the rest of you accomplished musicians at home — to apply today. If accepted, you’ll join stars like ukulele songstress Julia Nunes, singer-songwriter David Choi and many others who, as partners, are able to make some money from their YouTube videos.

YouTube enlisted viral video musicians Pomplamoose, above, to introduce the new program.

They’ve also signed up OK Go as one of the first YPP for Musicians partners.

“YouTube has always been a great match for OK Go,” says OK Go’s Damian Kulash. “We can connect directly with our fans. When we heard about Musicians Wanted, it was a no-brainer: it sounds great for us.”

Currently US-Only

Unfortunately for 95% of the world’s population, the program is currently only available in the US. YouTube says that “There are plans to roll out the program more widely in the future.”
