LOS ANGELES and BROOKLYN, N.Y., Feb. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Leading independent DIY digital music distributor TuneCore, a division of global digital music company Paris-based Believe, has partnered with newly launched mobile music discovery platform Fwaygo. The two companies will work together to provide artists with digital music distribution through Fwaygo, powered by TuneCore.
Fwaygo is a new mobile music discovery platform which gives independent artists the ability to increase their exposure and, in the future, their earnings. Created by serial social media entrepreneur, musician and Fwaygo CEO Jeremy Greene alongside partners Mercari CEO John Lagerling and Fwaygo COO Janelle Greene, the company launched in beta late last year and has already attracted tens of thousands of enthusiastic users and gained the support of artists like renowned rap artist Young Thug, who uses Fwaygo to find new music and artists with whom to collaborate.
Young Thug commented, “I have never came across such so many great artists on one single platform. Fwaygo is the future of music discovery and distribution. Fwaygo is P“
Said Greene, “I believe the future of artist discovery and distribution is in mobile and I’m happy to disrupt the music industry because It’s been broken for a very long time. We are thrilled to be partnering with the TuneCore team and look forward to joining the revolution for independent artists.”
Through the Fwaygo app, artists can upload songs directly from their mobile devices, along with artwork and social tags with a 15 second burst allowing users to discover the best parts of the song. The ease of use has fueled Fwaygo’s rapid growth with over 40,000 artist profiles created since their launch.
Once the record has been uploaded, Fwaygo uses its AI powered algorithm to match fans with music they will love, giving artists the opportunity to go viral through Fwaygo’s “Discover” feed. Through the new partnership with TuneCore, artists will have the opportunity to send their music to over 150+ digital stores and streaming platforms using TuneCore’s industry leading automated distribution services, all via their mobile phones, making the entire experience simple and seamless.
Commented Andreea Gleeson, Chief Executive Officer, TuneCore, “Fwaygo taps into two areas of importance for independent artists – opportunity for music discovery and a fast easy music upload experience. We’re looking forward to the partnership and working with Fwaygo to get their artists’ music distributed to audiences around the world, while they keep their ownership, and get paid too.”
