Music Hub – Royalties Manager – (DE)

MusicHub is the new digital platform that empowers musicians to unleash their creative potential and get their music heard, enabling them to build a sustained career, one ready track at a time.

Our seamless DIY solution allows artists to release their music on leading streaming platforms and to organize and easily promote their music independently, whilst retaining full control of their rights. Kickstarted via a company-building project, our international and diverse team of music experts is now preparing to officially launch our service in 2021. Additional content management and rights administration features will be implemented in the future. We are now looking for talented people to join our exciting journey and to constantly enhance our members’ experience.

MusicHub is a subsidiary of GEMA, the German collecting society for music copyrights whose members include over 80.000 composers, lyricists and music publishers. The company is managed by ZEBRALUTION, one of the leading distributors for music, audiobooks and podcasts headquartered in Kreuzberg and with offices in Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, London and L.A.. We combine our start-up spirit with the experience of the ZEBRALUTION Group, awarded by digital service providers such as Spotify and Apple, as their preferred provider for over a decade, and the stability of GEMA, a non-profit association with over 100 years of history.
