Crosby, Stills & Nash Announce Release of Custom CSN iPad App
Crosby, Stills & Nash
Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) and CSN Records announce the release of an all-new, custom CSN app that is the first subscription-based iPad app for a recording artist to be approved for sale in the Apple App Store. Developed by Contendis for its Artist2Fan® platform, the CSN app is live, and installation is free. All users will experience a detailed, media-rich overview of CSN's history, with links to the group's official website, social media sites, and to iTunes. For $3.99 a month—or $39.99 a year—subscribers to the CSN app will have access to exclusive content, updates, and premium fan features. Subscriptions can be purchased via an in-app link.
"Use this app as an open door to our music," says Graham Nash. "And, as usual, when one door closes—another one opens...enjoy exploring."
Fans will experience dynamic and ever-growing content in the CSN app's four unique rooms—"The Attic," "The Studio," "The Road," and "The Living Room"—as well as a custom store for special merchandise. In addition to in-depth content spotlighting CSN, the app will explore the histories and music of the bands that David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash were members of prior to joining together as a trio in 1969—The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively.
"We are thrilled to be working with Crosby, Stills & Nash on this groundbreaking iPad app honoring their legacy and body of work," says James Raymond, co-founder/COO, Contendis, Inc. "We look forward to providing CSN and other great artists with a platform to engage and connect with their fans in a profound new way."
Currently, CSN is wrapping up its critically acclaimed 2012 world tour, which concludes with five sold-out concerts at New York City's Beacon Theatre. The final date is October 22. For the second set of that show, they will play the group's classic 1969 debut album Crosby, Stills & Nash in its entirety—an in-concert first.
