Music licensing hasn’t fundamentally changed for about 100 years. If one were to design it from scratch today, it would look different. That’s what we've done.



We are musicians, technologists, and company builders. We are passionate about the advancement and welfare of the music economy because we live it. We are building a platform to simplify and automate the music licensing process, with transparency and control at the forefront.
