BOULDER, COLORADO – Existing advertising & subscription supported streaming services cannot pay artists fairly for their work, so a disruptive, new model is needed if we want the artform to survive. MusicPax is this disruption: paying rights holders 100 percent more for their streamed songs (and creates new revenue channels for them) while making it easy for users to freely enjoy their favorite tunes without advertising interruptions or subscriptions.
MusicPax has completed development of its streaming platform and has now launched an IndieGoGo campaign to fund final development of its very unique revenue model. In addition to free music, MusicPax allows users to win free gifts and discounts on popular items. The revenue model, which will be patented, has been extensively validated and is known to be effective in generating better income for artists while keeping music free for users.
As seen at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/free-streaming-music-2x-more-money-for-artists, those who are interested in contributing can choose any amount for their pledges. The goal is for 100,000 people each to donate at least $1 or more. Donors receive lifetime status as a “MusicPax Founder” with preferred lifetime access to special services and offers. Depending on the size of the contribution, donors will be eligible for free or special tickets for concerts and events, free or special songs and swag by artists and free promotion of personal playlists that can generate income for them on MusicPax.
For more information, see the IndieGoGo page.
At MusicPax, we love music and are tired of seeing artists and consumers have a less than desirable experience in the new world of streaming music. Artists don’t get paid fairly because the money from ads and subscriptions just doesn’t add up and it’s not going to change. Consumers don’t want to pay for a subscription and don’t like ads interrupting their favorite music. For music to thrive, a totally new revenue model is needed to disrupt the ecosystem. MusicPax has created this new model.
