Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
Good Morning!
Now that January, also known as the longest Monday of the year, has passed there seems to be quite a pick up in the music business news cycle.
Marshmello took over Fortnite with a live virtual concert. In the process he increased his views by 500%.
PledgeMusic makes a huge fumble with artist payouts and they get called out by their peers.
Bandsintown brags about their 50 million users.
Meet the new Techstars Music class for 2019 including a wide variety of startups.
This week’s featured startup is Seated. Seated seeks to take on the tour date listings void of an artist’s website by allowing them a fully customizable solution. As someone who has used the frustratingly complicated Bandsintown and Songkick, Seated offers anyone with a little CSS knowledge a welcome reprieve.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
