This episode of Stand Above The Noise features an interview with Jonas Forth, Creative Director of ThingLink – a web app allowing you to make any image "rich" by adding to it music, video, text, buy links etc. It's primarily used by music brands, and integrates with Soundcloud, Topspin, FanBridge, iTunes and over a dozen music streaming services (besides YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and other popular social networks and apps).

In the interview, Jonas talks on how small the music tech space is, how artists should be getting the most out of the tools available to them online, and the importance of engaging your audience.
