The music industry is constantly evolving as technology and consumer habits change.
While radio and MTV were once the main hubs where new songs were discovered, apps like Spotify, YouTube and TikTok are now the dominant platforms where fans find music.
The number of tools available to artists for composing and distributing songs is also growing rapidly, even though consolidation centered power in the industry among a few major record companies.
Over the past few years, a slew of new startups have sprung up to help artists create, distribute, monetize, and promote their work.
Some startups, like Catalog and Royal, are developing Web3 features for artists using blockchain technology. Others, like Mayk, have created tools for creators to create DIY-style music on their phones. Several companies are also innovating on cost and revenue sharing structures for distributing music on streaming apps.
