Discover New Music
Songladder wants to bring new music to your lonely ears. We believe lesser-known
artists have a lot to offer but they need the right forum. If you enjoy having your music spoon-fed to you by mainstream media, Songladder might not be for you. But if you enjoy holding your own spoon, and fork, and knife, then dig in!
Songladder uses listener feedback to push the best music to the top
of our charts. We recognize that anonymous voting is often tainted or fabricated. So, we give
more credibility to songs that have 'natural' voting activity. Read more about song ranking
Always Free Music
All songs in our community are available for free. We want artists to gain loyal followers and Songladder to gain loyal listeners.
If hear something you like, make sure you support the artist by purchasing the album or other

The First 50
Our community is nothing without good music. We believe that our first 50 songs
are the most important.
These artists set the standard for quality at Songladder.com. They took the time to upload music when
Songladder was quiet and empty like a music club on a Monday night. Give these brave artists a listen
Our editors select favorites from the Songladder charts and offer written opinion. It's a great way for artists to get feedback on their craft. More importantly,
editors point our listeners in the direction of good material that might have low exposure. They mark the trails and you can hike them if you want to!

Songladder was created by Mark and Leonard. Mark is a web developer with a passion for music.
Leonard is a parrot who lives in a cage. He recites his favorite songs over and over again which can be maddening.
Desperate for new music, Leonard hatched the Songladder idea.
