“ReverbNation has long been the standard for artist promotion and growth tools. Since its evolution from a startup in 2006 to a mature, profitable business today, it has continually innovated”, said Mike Doernberg of eMinor, Inc (former owner). Launched in 2006, US-based ReverbNation offers digital distribution, as well as career management and online marketing tools for independent artists.
Founded in 2015, BandLab is Singapore-based BandLab Technologies’ flagship music making platform, which, it reports, is used by over 40 million creators. Post-acquisition, ReverbNation says that its services to artists will be uninterrupted and that that artists can “expect a seamless integration of ReverbNation’s features into BandLab’s creator capabilities in the near future”. No other details of the deal have been released, but BandLab says that more information will be shared about product roadmap and future features in “due course”.
