Music is being released at the unprecedented rate of 100,000 new songs per day, and the odds of “getting discovered” have never been lower for musicians. In the United States, just 5,000 artists have major label deals, and more and more musicians are choosing to remain independent, adopting new technologies to market and monetize their music. Rather than focusing on writing, recording and playing the music they love, music makers are often overwhelmed with marketing, social media, finances and catching up to the latest technology.
Supporting musicians, labels and fans everywhere, Intercept Music (OTC Pink:SNWR) is the future for independent artists. This modern, managed solution for musicians is modeled after the Amazon stores concept and represents a new direction for independent artists and the music industry as a whole.

The Intercept Plus program expands upon the Amazon model of running storefronts for other businesses, capitalizing on the fact that artists come with their own fans. Likewise, they are constantly producing new music, which then spurs new merchandise and sales opportunities. Intercept takes a reasonable management fee from all managed sources, reports gross revenue and then commissions the artists, also providing full analytics and transparent reporting. They even file the monthly sales tax reports for each of the artist stores.
Intercept Plus offers a comprehensive go-to-market strategy encompassing direct outreach to major label and booking agency partnerships, targeted advertising and editorials, celebrity reps and access to major fan groups by genre.
