Play and Rate

2012/05/03

Filed under Announcements, Newsletter

We’ve just made it easier to listen to music and rate songs! When you’re playing a song on the site, and want to rate it (or any song on the page), the song won’t get interrupted anymore by the page reload. Click on the star rating you want. The HomeGrownHits Charts will readjust the numerical ranking of all songs in real time, without needing to reload the page, while your song continues to play. Try it!

(If you want to see the songs in order of their position in the Charts, though, you will need to reload.)

We’re gearing up for our next contest. This one is going to be big! Keep your eyes on the site early next week for the announcement…


The Singularity Graciously Accepts Their Prize

2012/04/24

Filed under Newsletter, Videos

Last night we bestowed the ESP EC-1000 Guitar and Avid Pro Tools/M-Box on Julian Shah-Tayler and Chris Lopez from The Singularity, whose song “Talking in Your Sleep” made top of the Charts in our ESP-AVID “Kick-AS(CAP)” Song Contest! They showed us their home studio, where they were working on their latest recordings. Chris indulged us by playing the lead-in chords to “Talking in Your Sleep” on his new ESP guitar, and Tony performed lead vocals (emphasis on “performed”). To see the hilarity, play the video.

Thanks to ESP Guitars and Avid for donating the awesome gear and sponsoring this hugely successful contest. And thanks to all the songwriters and musicians for their amazing songs that have made the Charts so dynamic and rich. And, of course, thanks to all the listeners and fans who rated the songs and ensured that the best rises to the top.


Facing Arrows is Playing the El Rey!

2011/08/16

Filed under Announcements, Newsletter

The band Facing Arrows held the number one spot for 31 days with their hit song “Home”. Everyone listened to it, loved it, and voted it straight to the top. Now guess what… On Thursday, August 25th, Facing Arrows will be playing the famous El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles! You voted them to the top, now go see them live.


The Charts are Constantly Changing!

2011/08/06

Filed under Editorial, Newsletter

We are getting some great music posted on HomeGrown Hits! The band Facing Arrows held the #1 spot for 31 days, until last week, when Garland charged right to the top with their song “Sunshine Days”. It's a great song and you should take a listen and give your vote. We are having fun watching the Charts change right before our eyes as we cast our votes, are you? If you have not experienced this yet, you must give it a try. YOUR VOTES COUNT. It&#39s very cool to see it happen when you click a star (Thank you Jim!). We are working hard to make the playlist function available to you and it will be up soon.


It’s Time to Listen To (and Rate) Some Great Music!

2011/07/20

Filed under Announcements, Editorial, Newsletter

Since our last post thirty-five songs have been added to the HomeGrown Hits website. The site is growning at a phenomenal rate, and the caliber of music that is now available to listen to is frankly, way better than we were expecting at such an early stage (check out the current #1 song, “Home” by Facing Arrows, to get an idea of what we mean).

But now we need you to breathe life into the charts and keep them fresh. If you want the charts to be a place to discover new, high quality, music, you need to rate the songs you listen to. As you vote, you will see the charts change – it’s pretty amazing. (You will need to log in to vote.) Your vote counts. In fact, the more songs you rate, the more your vote counts! To read more about rating and how the charts work, see the About page.

You’ll notice most of the links now work. In particular, we’ve added the ability to list the most recently added songs, so you can check out music that was uploaded since your last visit. For a “shuffle-play” type of listing, you can also sort the charts randomly. If you like a song by a particular artist and want to see all the songs by the artist, click on the artist’s name.

COMING SOON: playlists!
