With instant audition capabilities combining social platforms YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud along with the immediacy of swipe technology and algorithmic matching.

VAMPR has gained industry notoriety at this year’s 2016 Silicon Beach Fest, receiving the audience choice award.

VAMPR is a new iOS app designed to connect musicians of all genres with like-minded collaborators in any city around the world. VAMPR is a social network with unique privacy provisions that allows musicians to make a profile in a few quick taps. The app is available for free from the Apple App Store.

CEO and co-founder Josh Simons says “who you know and where you live have traditionally been the biggest restrictions for the bedroom musician in doing anything to further explore their passion. We’ve tried to break down these barriers and provide an interactive app based environment which allows you to make real world connections with people who share your creative vision.”

VAMPR was founded in partnership with Melbourne musician, producer, and technology entrepreneur Baz Palmer. Best known for his musical successes as the lead guitarist for seminal Australian rock band Hunters & Collectors, Baz has more recently found success in music and technology startups with SoundHalo and Kombie.

VAMPR headquarters are based in Venice Beach, Los Angeles. The startup recently attracted UK Music Executive Nick Feldman as an investor. Nick has achieved great success as a musician himself with Wang Chung and additionally as an executive with Warner Brothers and SONY BMG.

Buchanan is an alt-indie four-piece led by VAMPR CEO Josh Simons. They are an Australian band, who were personally selected by Keith Urban to support him on the Australian leg of his ‘ripCORD World Tour’. The band are set to debut brand new music recorded during Simons’ time in Los Angeles, in addition to tracks from their recently released album “Pressure in an Empty Space” produced by Simon Duffy (Leftfield, Mr Hudson, Dirty Vegas and Missy Elliot). Buchanan has had over one million streams on Spotify, half a million plays on YouTube and over 200,000 listens on SoundCloud.
