PledgeMusic is an online artist-to-fan platform that brings the music experience alive for both artists and fans.
Through each project, artists are able to connect and presell exclusive offers directly to their fans to market their release months in advance. This creates buzz and excitement around the release, strengthens the connection between artist and fans, and applies to anything and everything music – from albums and DVD’s to tours and books.
Fans become part of that music making experience and receive access to exclusive behind the scenes content.
