MusicPortl, a Hamburg, Germany-based mashup application created by Christoph Olszowka, aggregates information about music artists. The site leverages the API’s of Amazon, Lastfm, Flickr, MusicBrainz, Ontok, Technorati, Wikipedia and YouTube to produce a comprehensive music resource for the artist research.
In searching for artist information on Dave Matthews Band (quite possibly one of the greatest bands ever assembled) MusicPortl returns every possible biography via Wikipedia, links to recent blog posts from Technorati, photos from Flickr, videos from YouTube, recent albums on Amazon.com as well as suggested artist that are similar in genre among other things. See the screen-shot above to see how information is displayed.
Bottomline: MusicPortl offers a great one stop shop for researching a music artist.
