The world of online music business continues to blast out headlines with "acquiring", "partnering", and other terms of moving on and moving up.

The most recent exciting acquisition comes from YouTube, who purchased BandPage for an undisclosed fee. BandPage defines itself as "the central profile that musicians can use to engage and sell to their fans on the largest music services in the world". The firm previously partnered with Spotify, Rhapsody, Rdio, VEVO, Shazam and more. Things are expected to change, however, as YouTube now has control over exclusivity.

BandPage released a statement announcing the merger and expressed great excitement in future endeavors. Since the firm's number one goal is to create creative new revenue opportunities with musicians, they believe that "YouTube truly shares [their] commitment to musicians…[and] already offers a global distribution platform…and some of the best self-publishing tools…" Both companies can't wait to get started, and trust that with their teamwork, there's so much more that they can do to help musicians.

To read more on the latest YouTube and BandPage duo, MBW is the place to be.

Testimonials

  • "I'm one of the top Indie songwriter/producers in Canada with a catalog of over 250 songs. The SongHunters - Doug Diamond, Dave Weiss & Dave Hnatiuk, are always emailing me asking for submissions for their placement opportunities. They listen attentively to each of my submissions and end up getting me a synch license every so often - the last one with Airwalk Shoes. These guys are professional, helpful, and prompt with communication, working hard to get my music placed.  And they're nice guys too! Thanks SongHunters!"

"This book had a direct impact on my career. From the multiple books that I have read on building a career in the music industry, this book is the most eye opening, informative, and useful of them all. It is akin to taking the brains and experience of fifty music industry vets and inserting them directly into your head."  –Adam A. Johnson


"Thank you for writing the Music Supervision book. I am a singer/songwriter, but wanted to better understand the perspective of music supervisors, and this book definitely helps me to do that."
