If only music was just about creating and performing… Sadly, every creative that has ever decided to cross the Rubicon and to release their own music knows only too well how time consuming it can be to deal with administrative tasks: collaboration agreements, copyright registration, production budgets, etc., it’s a true minefield. But where there is darkness, there is light… and Reveel: a Wallifornia 2021 startup that has developed a platform, by creatives who have suffered, for creatives who would rather not.

This is the story of Adrien. Adrien used to be a Reggae Musician in the Najavibes band, for which he was also acting manager at the time. And since Adrien is a friendly guy, when the band started to become increasingly popular (Montreux Jazz, Polé Polé, etc), he started producing other artists too. Then Adrien decided to start his own label, Bridge Music, that later became Fruits Records, producing artists from the UK, Jamaican, and beyond. This is how he learned the hard way just how hard it can be to deal with the admin stuff, and the massive amount of uncreative work it represents.

But Adrien is smart, Swiss and likes to make things right. Fast-forward to a few years later, and an early career in investment banking in the USA, as well as an MBA from ESADE & Berkeley Haas got him thinking: why the hell couldn’t other people learn and benefit from his own suffering? This is how Adrien decided to approach a friend, who is also a developer, and to launch a customized platform to automatize the administrative tasks musicians have to suffer through. And just like that, Reveel was born.

At first, we were focused on the issue of collecting due credits for studio sessions, explains Adrien, but quickly, the pandemic happened. We had to broaden our scope and to adapt to remote collabortion.” Quickly, the duo evolved and started to include tips and functionalities to help musicians complete the admin tasks they are asked to achieve.

What we discover is that building on our own experience, we can save musicians up to 6h30 of administrative work per song, which is that much more time they can spend on what they do best: writing and playing music” says Adrien.

Following the saying that if you teach a man to fish you will feed him for a lifetime, Adrien and his partner developed their platform based on the principle that they both have to educate people on how to deal with paperwork on their own, and to facilitate the process so it becomes accessible to any creator. Hence, the first version of their idea, a 3-in-1 SaaS – Software as a service.

  • Royalty Locator: the first piece of the puzzle is free. It is an educative tool that allows creatives to understand what they are entitled to, and offers them a free and personalized diagnosis of what they already collect, what they could, and who to connect with to get it.
  • Creator ID: Reveel’s second tool is a digital passport where creatives can store their personal data as well as an history of their connections with other companies.
  • My Tracks: the third functionality of Reveel is a collaborative project management tool dedicated to managing administrative tasks from A to Z and focused on releasing music professionally.

The Royalty Locator is free for all, while the Creator ID and My Tracks tools, currently in a free Beta, will be available on a subscription fee model. Recently launched, the Reveel app can already count on a strong community of enthusiastic pioneers, and the startup is growing fast, partly thanks to what they learned during the 2021 Wallifornia MusicTech acceleration program.

We have a user growth rate of 20% to 30% per week, highlights Adrien, and we’ve only just begun! At first, we were focused on the music industry, but we quickly realized that a lot of creatives face similar issues. Actually, there aren’t that many differences from one sector to another.” And the young CEO is quick to stress the key role played by Wallifornia:

During the program, we learned the importance of building strong relations and to educate people about administration, something they often know almost nothing about before signing their first contract. Wallifornia led us to the development of our Royalty Locator tool”.

Present in the USA, the UK, France, Canada, and India, Reveel plans to extend it’s services to Brazil, Germany and Belgium where “we had the opportunity to meet several key players during Wallifornia” enthuses Adrien, who sees Wallifornia’s network as one of its most impressive strengths : “It is impressive to see how Wallifornia is connected with the industry. During the program, we managed to connect with a lot of people, including right management companies in Europe, and North America. And that includes coaches and advisors. We had the opportunity to work with Yvan Boudillet, and he really is a super-connector.”

After months of development, the start-up is now ready to raise some funds to guarantee its growth. “We want to be the tool that saves all creatives from the brunt of admin work. We want to develop business infrastructures for creatives”. Music to their ears.

Is there anything better than listening to the song you fell in love to, while enjoying a Latte Macchiato in a mug branded by the artist who wrote it? Or maybe attending a concert and going home with a comfy tee reminding you of a unique performance, enjoyed with friends and relatives? The answer is yes: doing it with a quality product.

You’re probably thinking to yourself “oh lord, not another NFT article” and honestly, we feel the same. Before sitting down to write this, we’ve read dozens of articles and watched hours of videos to get a full understanding of NFT’s before figuring out how we can apply it to our area of expertise: Music.  Our artists, musicians and creators were left in the dust due to the pandemic. Their income and livelihoods were upended and true recovery won’t begin until 2022.

38 teams from across the world have been collaborating with AI in an effort to create the ultimate song. It is now the time for you to decide who the winner should be. Put on your headphones and immerse yourself in the wide variety of styles and cultural influences and give your personal opinion. This year, the submissions shine in geographical, cultural and algorithmic diversity: from Swedish folk to American funk, from Hungarian electronic beats to Mexican synth pop, from minimalist

A week ago, we were happy to learn from Christopher Edmonds that Remetrik (Wallifornia Acceleration Program, Class of 2020) was selected to join the “Techstars Music 2021” program. An incredible journey that would have been “much less likely” without joining Wallifornia first, according to Christopher Edmonds, Remetrik’s CEO. For Christopher, Wallifornia was first and foremost an incredible opportunity to learn how to communicate on his project: “I worked in the music business for 16 years and I am aware of the

They are developers, artists, creatives or gig manager. They are music lovers and tech enthusiasts. They all swear that there is nothing like a live concert surrounded by friends nursing a lukewarm beer, but they also believe that the experience of listening to music could be improved by new technologies, including virtual reality. A complementary way for artists to reach their audience, not a threat. A logical evolution that sounds like a revolution too, and a strong card to play
