Providence, RI: In today’s day and age, the Independent Artist is much more common than it has been in the past, and this is due to a plethora of new resources, along with many of the old barriers to entry being removed by technology. Now, sitting inside a co-working space in Providence, RI, two local entrepreneurs are about to break down one of the last and most significant barriers in the industry through their new platform in the music tech space.
Nicholas Cianfaglione (Founder) & Emil Jimenez (Lead Technology Officer), have launched one of the most disruptive tech platforms to hit the music industry. Artist Republik is a social network-based digital management tool that allows a music artist, anywhere in the world, to sign up for free and begin managing their career. Artist Republik has designed the platform to have all the tools, resources, and third party connections that artists need to manage, market, and book themselves. So whether it is booking a show, booking a recording studio, hiring a graphic designer, networking with blogs, or just talking to other artists, Artist Republik is designed to put the power back into the hands of the independent Artist.
Currently, the platform is only in its beta phase, but has quickly amassed over 13,000 Artists that signed up to participate in the beta! Artist Republik reps also mentioned that they plan to have a stable version ready for their public debut at the tradeshow at SXSW in March of 2020!
The team at Artist Republik plans to launch new features every month, so stay tuned for more!
