Company Summary

The BandAndMe app is a virtual destination where music lovers enjoy their favorite bands with access to public content aggregated into a single newsfeed, and for a $2/mo subscription, to proprietary music and video streaming and live broadcasts. BandAndMe integrates sales, distribution and promotion into one platform, removing the middlemen and freeing up more money to pay bands. Artists receive 50% of revenues, instead of 15% from record labels.
