COMPANY OVERVIEW Who are we? iMusician was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty goal: Tear down the walls erected by the music industry that keep independent artists and labels locked out.

That’s why we strive to make it easy for you to sell, manage, protect, and monetize your music.  When you become more financially sustainable, you make more music. It’s as simple as that. What we do? We distribute music from independent artists and labels to hundreds of music  platforms like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer or Beatport, we then collect royalties from publishing and neighboring rights from collecting societies. Our Berlin office is the hub for our Global Marketing and Customer Support teams, working with our international team in Zurich, we are growing rapidly.
