Artistdirect.com is another portal to download free music, videos, news, and be a part of a shared-music community.
Under the same umbrella of Artistdirect, Inc are two other portals such as ubl.com for artists to better promote and market their music and other being loserkids.com in association with the famous band Blink-182.
The portal used to be a big thing sometime in the 2010s, but not anymore.
In this Artistdirect review, we rate the service on following parameters:
- Website experience
- Music Library
- Music Quality
You can find the News, Artists, or Videos or search for the music from the Menu Bar.
On the homepage, you can find the latest music interviews and videos uploaded on the site. There’s also a top 100 list of songs available on the right. That’s mostly a featured list of songs. You can also find affiliate links to buy music.
There’s no app for the portal, it is ad-free but has affiliate links as mentioned.

Also, the website doesn’t open in other countries apart from the US.
Therefore, I’d not give it more than a 5/10.
Also, not all the songs available are free to download. Make sure to check the licenses before you download anything.
You can find many country songs, rock, hip-hop, pop, etc. on the portal. There are music and news from many famous as well as short-lived artists such as Metallica, Jennifer Lopez, Mad at Gravity, Uncle Kracker, Z-Ro, Echo Echo, etc.

For the quality, I can give it a 5/10.
