“The Music Site actively promotes value, honesty and transparency in music”
The Music Site simplifies the overcrowded digital music space, saving time, money and inconvenience for artists and creators, and actively promotes value, honesty and transparency in everything we do.
Artists and creators can consolidate, showcase and monetize all their media, assets and information conveniently in one place, access a smart online workplace with an ever-growing suite of tools to support a music career, all conveniently accessed through an affordable $/€/£9.99 monthly subscription.
Combined with the power and growth of a bespoke music-centric social network freely accessible by anyone, and a relational database of emerging talent, media and user data, we provide value and benefit to a global audience of creators, fans and the industry.
Our core platform has been built using a robust and scalable infrastructure ready to adopt new technologies such as Blockchain for music.
More and more artists are self releasing and enjoying success without the need for a record label deal. And this is made possible due to the tools available to independent musicians.
Every musician and creative, at any stage of their music career, relies on multiple tools and services to manage the various tasks needed to succeed in today’s digital music environment.
This include releasing music, collecting royalties, selling merch, finding gigs, getting in front of new (and existing) fans, collecting fan data, staying socially active and a whole load more.
As a result, the digital music industry has become overcrowded, and for many, it’s overwhelming and inconvenient to keep track of all the tools available, not to mention the multiple logins and individual costs.
The Music Site answers this problem by providing an ever-growing suite of tools to support the many areas of a successful music career, and we’ll be offering all these tools at an incredibly affordable monthly subscription which is convenient, saves time and money.
We’re challenging the norm with pricing because ‘that’s just the way it is’ doesn’t wash with us. Our Pro Subscription will always be a better-than-good deal, we’ll be offering all Pro tools for just $/€/£9.99 a month, and only 4.99 to start with, which when compared to other is an incredible saving. And we’ll be adding more tools regularly to make it even better value!
Any tool we build which isn’t viable as part of the Pro Subscription model, i.e. the cost-price is more than the subscription, is priced fairly as a joint input by real and meaningful people.
The music services we offer are, and will always be, carefully chosen providers that are the best deal for you, and in line with our mission to create a transparent music environment.
By consolidating music and related media, with social and musician tools all in one space, but we hope to simplify the digital music industry, addressing the growing problem of fragmentation, inconvenience and costs for both creators & consumers.
MORE WAYS TO EARN AND SAVE
We have BIG plans for this! Through revenue sharing, higher payout rates, lower fees and some revolutionary ideas to help artists earn more, and give fans more as a result!
Subsequently, our end goal is to create a music environment that any artist or creative will know and trust, that any fan will know they’re activity will be supporting independent musicians and that any industry professional will value.
We have recognised one substantial opportunity for us to contribute, is the potential for our platform to support and deliver the much needed Blockchain technology in music. Our core platform has been developed with this in mind.
Why we’re Crowdfunding
With the initial social platform built, we’re now turning our focus to our overall mission of creating an artist-friendly workplace. This includes building an ever-growing suite of tools to enhance promotions, improve efficiency, maximize exposure and generate income.
We also have plans on growing the social network to benefit our artists, so this crowdfund helps with the ongoing growth of the network.
So to kickstart this mission, build a suite of tools and grow the social network, we need your support.
There’s a whole bunch of reasons why we think you should support us, whether you’re a music fan, a musician or just a nice person!
The first and most important reason is this isn’t a typical ‘rewards’ crowdfund campaign where you receive a t-shirt or a copy of our latest music release (though we imagine you would all want one if it was!), this is an equity crowdfund which means you will actually own a piece of The Music Site yourself. Pretty cool huh!?
We think this is a much better deal for you (especially in the long run), however, here are some more benefits for supporting the campaign:
- You’ll be supporting our mission to create a fair, honest and transparent business model for music.
- You’re support will be forever acknowledged on our Acknowledgements page which we promise to keep active on The Music Site for life!
- You’ll help us create more ways for musicians to earn more from their music.
- You’ll get first access to test the new tools and features we’ll be building in the first 6 months
- For every £1000 raised, we’ll be planting a tree. Why? Because why not! (That’s a lot of trees…)
- You’ll get a completely one-off badge on your TMS profile to show that you were a supporter from day one.
- You’ll OWN a piece of The Music Site!
- Who knows, it might pay off like it did with this guy
Want to support us but don’t want to ‘invest’?
We understand that some of you may want to support our mission but don’t want the headache of ‘investing’ (or the investor benefits). That’s OK, we need all the support we can get, so we’ve created this orange button below for you to support us with a simple donation through PayPal. Any donation we receive will go 100% towards the campaign and our mission, and of course you’ll still be mentioned on our Acknowledgements page for life!
Word of mouth goes a long way…

What stage are you at already?
We have been building the core platform for over 2 years, from concept to Beta (where we are at now) and this is just the beginning.
The core platform has been built using a robust and scalable infrastructure which enables us to build upon over the coming years.
This crowdfund will allow us to take it to market, expand our team and more importantly, focus on adding all the features, tools and benefits to maximise this opportunity and potential.
Here’s a link to see what we’re about and what we’ve done so far.
It sounds great for musicians, but what about for business?
We strongly believe that there’s a much bigger and broader picture when genuinely supporting and helping creators, rather than squeezing every penny out of them where possible. That’s just bad business.
We believe that building a relationship upon trust and transparency will be much more prosperous for both The Music Site and our artists, and hopefully the consumers can benefit too.
So it’s a win-win-win for all!
For more details, please see our financial forecast which suggests the real potential for a platform like The Music Site.
What happens to my money if the campaign doesn't reach it's target?
If we don’t reach the full amount of the investment sought, everyone who has supported us will receive back 100% of their money.
Our campaign will be through a leading equity crowdfunding platform (we aren’t allowed to say who just yet), so you and you’re investment will be protected.
What is the return on my investment (ROI)?
Unfortunately we can’t guarantee what your returns might be, but please do check out the Financial Forecast slide in the Pitch Deck which shows our projections.
Can I invest if I don't live in the UK or Europe?
Although we are a global music platform, our Crowdfunding Campaign is only available to residents of the UK and Europe. which is also a BIG shame for us too as over half our fans are from outside Europe
BUT, we would still appreciate ANY other support like sharing this page with people who might be interested, even by simply Donating to our campaign without investing will support our mission. Learn how here >
