With so many tools out there built to help artists market their music, do we really need another one?
Soundrop CEO Jørn Haanæs thinks no one has quite hit the nail on the head yet in terms of catering to the new music industry, so he created Show.co, a platform that helps artists and labels build beautiful landing pages and widgets that showcase content without friction, collect important data, and monetize listeners and fans. Jørn spent six years at Warner Music Norway, most recently serving as marketing director, until he joined Soundrop in 2013.
In this interview recorded by Stand Above The Noise at Berlin Music Week 2014, Jørn explains what Show.co does, how it compares to competitors, and how music is discovered and consumed these days:
