The company is also responsible for a series of international song contests which have garnered considerable commercial success stories for many artists and their representation.

Founded in 2004 by Lior Shamir, co-founder of, an all-indie video portal on the web, now part of, and a partner in, an online suite of independent artist promotion tools, We Are Listening has become an influential force in the music industry and continues to play a pivotal role in the careers of thousands of indie artists and songwriters from over 50 nations.
