Music Dealers™ (MusicDealers.com), the global music agency and B2B music licensing company, is excited to celebrate its largest milestone to date - over $15 million in revenue earned for its community of over 18,000 independent artists across 115 countries worldwide.

“This is a celebration of all of our artists, and of the breaks Music Dealers and our clients have created for indie artists as they advance their careers. We are thrilled to be the stepping stone to give many of these artists a stage to share their music with the world, and help them generate significant income doing what they love,” said Eric Sheinkop, Founder and President, Music Dealers.

Music Dealers has achieved this historic landmark through innovative commercial partnerships with more than 500 clients including Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Spotify and Havas Sports & Entertainment. Client relationships and services range from commercial music services and custom music creation to strategy and sonic identity, including unique sync licensing placements and booking exclusive live performances for artists.

Exceeding the $15 million mark, of which every dollar is paid directly to the artists, signifies an evolution in the music industry. It is also a testament to how Music Dealers is leading the way in developing and nurturing successful brand-to-band relationships that provides unsigned artists new exposure, while allowing brands to effectively connect with their audiences in new and innovative ways.

“Working with indie artists provides McDonald’s with the flexibility and innovation to co-create something really special,” said Deborah Wahl, CMO, McDonald’s. “We also enjoy using our brand power to help artists realize their own dreams. Similarly, many of our owner/operators are entrepreneurs who started with nothing but a dream, and we love their spirit and determination.”

“Music Dealers is focused on creating new opportunities and new revenue streams for the world’s top emerging artists,” said Sheinkop. “With our team’s global expansion and the introduction of new product offerings that benefit our ever-growing artist community and clients alike, we’re poised to reach the next $15 million even faster than the first.”
