Timbredio is different than most music services. We offer two unique methods of supporting our artists:
Traditionally, streaming services pay their artists via a “pay per play” system, which requires artists to amass huge volumes of plays before receiving significant compensation, which is further diminished if the artist is signed. We pay our artists based upon how many unique likes listeners give their songs. A listener can only like a song once, but the payout is greater for that individual like than listening to the song many times on other platforms. Each quarter, we designate a portion of our revenue to the “pay per like” system. We allocate this revenue share to our artists according to the percent of the total unique listener likes their songs received during the period.
If you’ve come here and want to help an artist directly, one dollar of your monthly subscription can be designated to “back” an artist of your choice for as long as you stay with us. Musicians don’t have many consistent income sources and this is a fantastic way for them to get the support they need to continue doing what you both love.
Listener subscriptions are $7.99 per month. Artists can sign up and add their songs to our platform for free.
The iOS app will be available for free download in the Apple App Store on August 21, 2018. The Android app will come out in early September 2018.
Timbredio is a combination of the words 'timbre' and 'radio'. Timbre is a term used to describe the unique characteristic of a sound. For instance, you can tell the difference between a trumpet and a violin when they're playing the same note. This is because they have different timbres; they sound different. We believe that every one of us has our own unique perspective, our own voice, our own timbre, and that it deserves to be heard.
