Issue #8  •  June 15  •  view online
Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
This week we have a few interesting bits for you to check out, including The National and Bon Iver announcing their own streaming service. It’s an interesting concept for an artist to directly create their own streaming service and we are interested in finding out the success of this one. 
Scooter Braun sat down for the Midem conference and espoused some wisdom for us all. 
Snapchat is entering the ranks of the music industry by announcing a ticketing partnership with SeatGeek (everyone’s favorite secondary ticketing service) and Pandora, which seems like a last grasp of a dying horse with the streaming service. 
This week we are featuring a startup called, ToneDen, which many of those in the music space have used or are familiar with. We have used them for a few artists campaigns and it’s somewhat an easy service to bespoke for your marketing needs. We are partial to their streaming socialization which seems to be lacking on most of the digital service providers. 
Have a great weekend!
Corey & Josh
