September 29, 2022 – Money for Something: How Music Funding Can Help Artists Grow Without Losing Control

Signing a label deal used to be one of the most important decisions an artist could ever make, with the potential to define careers for decades. But many often overlook that they can get many of the same benefits of a label deal without giving up ownership of their music, by pursuing alternative funding and investment opportunities. beatBread is at the forefront of this approach, providing advances from $1,000 to $2 million to artists that are repaid from a share of their streaming and airplay revenues over a period of their choosing. Artists with as few as 10,000 monthly listeners on Spotify can take advantage, and get access to capital to hire the team that's right for them and maintain control of their career while climbing the music industry ladder. In this webinar, Matthew Tilley (Head of Artist and Industry Development at beatBread) explains how this approach can benefit artists, and walk attendees through the process of applying for funding with beatBread.
