A new mobile music service launched today called SongNumbers that promises to empower artists and record labels with what it calls a critical mass media utility. The service allows music fans to listen to, share and purchase music from their cell phones.

The technology behind SongNumbers is patent pending and allows artists to assign a phone number from the SongNumbers.com website to their music and anyone with a cell phone can call the number, preview the track and buy it with the press of a number.
The service requires no software, no players and no DRM. The two carriers offering the service at this time are AT&T and Alltel. "SongNumbers.com is a unique music distribution utility that allows artists and labels to reach out and touch their fan base with the service." Mr. Sharp added, "(sic) that SongNumbers makes it easy and fun for artists and labels to virally distribute content and generate phone downloads for preview and purchase by fans. And, not only are artists able to sell their music over the phone but they can also monetize the previews of their music with ad sponsorship."
