Venice Music Elevates Musicians Through New Distribution Services

As the music industry shifts towards an era of independence, Troy Carter and Suzy Ryoo’s Venice Music Collective is helping revolutionize what it takes for musicians, managers, and indie labels to reach success on their terms. Today, Venice Music is opening its platform to a larger global audience through consumer-accessible subscription services. 

Since its launch in 2021, Venice has created a thriving ecosystem where independent musicians, labels, and managers can access all-in-one distribution,  and opportunities to learn, network and grow - including panels with top industry professionals, digital and IRL events for networking and socializing, opportunities to receive feedback from sync and artist services through listening sessions and small group office hours,  Web3 advisory, and more. Before today, access to Venice was only accessible via exclusive invite or by purchasing an NFT-gated founding membership pass. Venice now wants to expand its global community through the following two subscription plans

Essentials Plan ($14.99/annually): 

  • Access to out premium distribution features including unlimited distribution, YouTube Content ID, real-time streaming analytics, financial tools, free Dolby Atmos to tracks, and more.
  • Attentive support from an experienced music content ops team 

Professional Plan ($500/annually): 

  • All Essentials Plan benefits
  • 25+ digital and IRL events each month (from online AMAs, live showcases, virtual summits, exclusive live streams, and more)
  • Access to exclusive networking and social events
  • Partner discounts from Soho House, Waves Audio, and more

Venice is dedicated to supplying musicians with distribution tools other distributors often charge extra for, allowing immediate access to unlimited releases to all major DSPs, real-time streaming insights, schedule releases, YouTube Content ID, Dolby Atmos, and easy collaborator splits. Additionally, Venice equips members with vital industry tools, knowledge, and network for their community to find success as an independent. 

“Our goal has been to help independent artists succeed on par with major label counterparts,” said Founder Troy Carter. “To sustain that success, artists need to feel educated, informed, and supported. Over the last 18 months, we’ve attracted high-quality partners and have begun to make a real impact in the independent community.” 

Venice Music’s official subscription-based membership launch commenced with seven days of digital programming from September 12 to September 18, 2022. Programming consisted of live discussions with music industry professionals and AMAs with founders Carter and Ryoo. In-person events will follow for the remainder of 2022, which includes community meet-ups, networking events, live showcases with performances by Venice members, a Web3 summit, and more. 

"Venice is reimagining independence for the future forward music entrepreneur while bringing along a passionate, global community,” says Co-Founder and President Suzy Ryoo. “We are ready to power independent ventures for artists, managers, and creative executives for the next decade and beyond.”
