Mumbai: Nokia Australia opened the doors of its Nokia Music Store today,
delivering millions of tracks from global hits to local artists and giving consumers the real freedom to enjoy music at their fingertips, 24/7.
Nokia is celebrating the launch of the Nokia Music Store in Australia
with an exclusive live album from leading independent and ARIA awarding
winning group, The John Butler Trio. Recently recorded in March 2008, the
live performance provides a unique insight into this popular local act. The live recording is available only from the Nokia Music Store music.nokia.com.au.
Rock legend, Jimmy Barnes will be the first local music recommender suggesting his top playlist to store visitors.
We will have an exclusive track from Pete Murray and Kate Miller-Heidke
also. The free track of the week will be from Stone Parade, winners of the
Nokia Be Heard competition in 2007.
"It is now access all areas for Australian music lovers," said Nokia Australia general manager Shaun Colligan. "Not only we do we have millions of tracks available for consumers, but we have something for everyone, whatever their music tastes. Australian consumers can be confident that the Nokia Music Store will have a broad range of genres including popular and non-mainstream genres and independent artists."
"We want to be the most locally relevant music story and will feature
artists such as The John Butler Trio, The Presets, Pete Murray, Kate Miller
Heidke, Powderfinger, Silverchair, Lior, Cut Copy, Kisschasey, Kasey
Chambers and many more!"
