UseYourEars is a South London based Music Portal aimed at musicians and music industry professionals. Its concept started in 2001 and has grown from a small internet experiment into a 13,000+ worldwide members list.
Our members range from songwriters, musicians, managers, producers, promoters, event organisers, teachers, composers etc.. right up to music listeners themselves. We then use our database to help network people together much like a contacts service. We also provide services to musicians via our network of contacts and have links to resources online.
