Zimbalam Surpasses 100,000 Artists, Launches New Website
Believe Digital's sister digital distribution platform Zimbalam, a service for unsigned artists worldwide, has hit 100,000 users. Alongside the company's milestone, a new Zimbalam UK website has been revealed. Launched in 2009, Zimbalam serves a route to market for unsigned, self-produced artists across the globe using the technology powering Believe Digital, allowing any artist to release an album or a single via the easily accessible online platform.
“Since the start of Zimbalam in 2009, the goal has been to make music distribution and great technology available worldwide to unsigned artists. At Believe we do not get the chance to work with all the amazing acts we would like, so Zimbalam allows us to do that whilst maintaining a high level of A&R; this gives us the ability to move acts into the main Believe machine where needed” – Lee Morrison General Manager UK, SVP Rights Management Believe Group.
Independent artists can distribute their music through Zimbalam while remaining in complete control of their content and obtaining 90% of royalty revenue from all sales. The platform also boasts several marketing tools such as and embeddable player and newsletter creation client to help unsigned artists obtain maximum exposure to grow their audience and increase their visibility.
