Believe, one of the global leading digital music companies, and its leading automated distribution division TuneCore recently announced the funding of a grant for India-based music creators. The Grant is a cash endowment of INR 1,00,000/- that will be awarded to one artist. This artist will be selected by a panel of music industry experts like Padmanabhan NS, Sandhya Surendranath, Rahul Sinha, Mae Mariyam Thomas, Rumpa Banerjee, Atul Churamani, Sarah Elizabeth Chawla, Nikitha Gandhi, and Heena Kriplani.
Andreea Gleeson, the Chief Executive Officer of TuneCore said, “The Indian music market is robust with talented independent artists and I’m excited that, by offering financial support in the form of the TuneCore Grant, we are able to provide a rising artist with the resources to continue to create work that inspires and resonates with audiences around the world.” All Indian-based Tunecore artists are eligible for the grant. Grant applications should include an original single in any language and genre. Submissions for this will be accepted till the 15th of December, 2022.
Earlier this year, TuneCore also unveiled the unlimited program that allowed constant music creation to be made more accessible for all artists. They achieved this by giving artists the ability to release an unlimited number of singles and albums for one flat price.
Believe, one of the world’s leading digital music companies set out with the mission to help develop artists and labels in the digital world by providing them with the solutions they need for a better reach. TuneCore, its automated distribution division, is a global platform for independent musicians to build audiences and careers with technology, services and a wide range of promotional services. It’s headquartered in Brooklyn New York with offices around the world.
Coming back to the TuneCore Grant, as Heena Kriplani, one of the judge panelists for it rightly said, the resilience shown by music creators during the pandemic is something that is to be noticed and commended. TuneCore has taken up this wonderful initiative to “eliminate the barriers faced by independent artists” and remind them that they are not alone.
