UnitedMasters is widening its net in the independent space by launching a new subscription service titled "Select."
Geared to iPhone and Android users, the "Select" subscription app will provide emerging artists on the independent circuit a bevy of tools to keep 100% of their royalties. UnitedMasters is allowing artists to either choose a 90/10 royalty split or a $5 a month subscription with no hidden fees. UM is also enabling its users to distribute their music to primary streaming services via their iPhone or Android, keep track of their fan analytics, and gain access to promotional tools to ensure commercial success.
"Disruption and democratization are in our DNA," said Steve Stoute, founder, and CEO of UnitedMasters. "'We're tearing down the construct of 'gatekeepers' and putting independent artists in front of the biggest brands, allowing them to choose the terms of their deal, and maintain 100% ownership of their careers - all from their phone."
