Artist services are a key part of that plan, as evidenced by our recently announced subscriptions and distribution offerings. This acquisition allows us to accelerate BandLab’s product roadmap and further enable us to break down technical, geographic, and creative barriers facing musicians and fans,” shares shares CEO of BandLab Technologies, Meng Kuok.

There are more exciting announcements to come, but what ReverbNation brings to BandLab seamlessly fits with our vision – a future where there are no boundaries to making and sharing music.”

“When BandLab approached us with their thesis for integrating ReverbNation and BandLab, it made complete sense, especially for our artists. BandLab is a natural fit. ReverbNation has long been the standard for artist promotion and growth tools. Since its evolution from a startup in 2006 to a mature, profitable business today, it has continually innovated,” adds CEO of eMinor, Inc., Mike Doernberg. “We have known and admired the management team at BandLab for some time and are excited about this extraordinary offering that will serve music makers in new and powerful ways.”
