A2IM’s Music Biz Reception could not be made possible without our sponsors Exactuals, Lyric Financial, CD Baby and Humbolt
Exactuals is a company built for the long haul. We value family, health, creativity, and the work-life balance required to achieve success both in and out of the office. We work hard to support one another in our mission to modernize the payment space while enjoying the journey together immensely. We are very proud of the team we have built and are thrilled to report a 100% retention rate to date.
Music industry veteran, Eli Ball founded Lyric Financial in 2007, with the mission to serve the global music community. With services that include catalog loans, royalty advances and music business lines of credit, Lyric Financial is able to provide meaningful financial solutions to the members of the music community. Lyric Financial is proud to work with all the major recording companies, music publishers, music distributors, ASCAP, BMI, SESAC and SoundExchange. In 2017, Lyric Financial launched SNAP* an innovative virtual ATM with SonyATV and Tunecore that automates the advance process. It allows artists, songwriters, indie labels and publishers to view their projected earnings and request a cash advance on their royalties or sales. The entire SNAP* process takes less than a minute and can be done from any mobile device or laptop – anytime, anywhere in the world.
CD Baby is more than just a music distributor. We’re a community of like-minded artists looking to buck the major-label model, and support independent artists in every way we can. We offer more opportunities, tools, and comprehensive services than any other music distributor. We make it easy for you to manage and grow your career all in one place, without ever having to worry about losing creative control. CD Baby artists maintain all the rights to their music, and can distribute their music to more than 95 digital retail stores. Every standard submission includes Sync Licensing and YouTube monetization, as well as the ability to create an unlimited number of custom, mobile-friendly music players to embed on a website and share online. Artists never have to pay annually. You’ll get the best artist support in the business. We’re artists, just like you.
SoundCloud, launched in 2008 by Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss, is the leading audio platform that gives users unprecedented access to the world’s largest community of music & audio creators. With its continued ambition to unmute the web, SoundCloud allows everyone to discover original music & audio, connect with each other and share the sounds they hear. In addition, sound creators can use the platform to instantly record, upload and share sounds across the internet, as well as receive detailed stats and feedback from the SoundCloud community.
Humbolt is a music discovery platform that caters to independent music. We focus on independent artists and label growth by providing the ability to stream their catalog with the option of exclusive content (music, video, social) directly to their audience at a reasonable fee per month. We partner directly with independent artists, labels, and distributors (on the behalf of their labels). Our revenue model is heavily positioned to favor independent labels and their artists. Simply put, our goal is to provide a platform that makes independent artists and labels more money
