A belated happy new year to our listeners! We hope you’ve hit the ground running in 2013.

At the end of each year at Pandora we always pause to take a look back. We have much to be thankful for, but the passion and joy we feel from our listeners is at the top of our list. Thank you for making 2012 yet another fantastic year.

When we created the Music Genome Project thirteen years ago, we had a dual purpose: connect people with music they love and help talented artists find their audiences. We knew if we could get the first part right, the second would naturally follow.

Well, it looks like that second part is actually beginning to happen. The Pandora audience is large enough now to begin making a real difference in the lives of thousands of working artists. Your listening tells the whole story. In 2012:

  • You listened to over 1 million different songs by over 100,000 different artists.
  • Over 10,000 artists had more than 250,000 unique listeners.
  • You created over 1.6 billion stations.
  • You listened to over 13 billion hours of music.

We believe that all great music deserves an audience. And we hear every day from artists that Pandora is helping them find that audience. It’s incredibly exciting for us… and to think we’ve only just begun.

So thanks again for listening. And remember, if you find a band you love, buy their music, go see a show, join a fan club. That’s how we’ll create a vital and healthy musical culture here, and around the world.

    Just wanted to stop by and say we look forward to what Pandora has in store for 2013. It's been a great service that we've enjoyed so far and your blog provides some really cool "behind-the-scenes" access. Thanks.
