Previously available exclusively to pay-TV subscribers, the Stingray Music app, a mobile music streaming service, offers an unparalleled listening experience of hundred genres like hip-hop, pop, electronic, indie, Christian, jazz, country music, and more! The comprehensive channel selection covers all styles and tastes, from the most mainstream to the most niche.

Recently redesigned from the ground up, Stingray Music empowers listeners to easily find the perfect soundtrack for all of life’s moments. Every continuous channel is lovingly curated by a music expert for every moment, place, and mood.

“The Stingray Music mobile app is quickly proving to be a must-have for listeners who want to access all the music they love and discover exciting new musical horizons,” said Mathieu Péloquin, Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Communications of Stingray. “Stingray Music disrupts what users have come to expect of music apps by providing a reliable lean-back experience. Thanks to our passionate team of music programmers, you can forget guesswork and endless scrolling, the perfect continuous soundtrack for every occasion is only a tap away.”

Stingray Music delivers monthly special programming curated by major music events and today’s biggest hitmakers. In October, fans can tune in to an exclusive channel curated by Grammy® and Emmy®-winning and Tony-nominated musician and actor, Harry Connick Jr. After 30 million albums sold worldwide, 13 number-one jazz albums in the United States, and a music, film, television, and Broadway career spanning three decades, the multi-talented artist releases a sensational new record, True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter, on October 25 via his new label home Verve Records. Music aficionados can also discover through Stingray's Rising Star program a channel curated by emerging artist Clairo.
