Timbredio is a streaming music service built to foster discovery and empower the artistic community. Our platform guarantees all artists a fair chance to be heard and a means to be directly supported by our listeners.
Timbredio is different than most music services as we believe fair payment for artists is critically important to the entire artistic ecosystem, artists and listeners alike. This is why we've rethought and rebuilt the payment model for artists. Here are the two main mechanisms for earning with Timbredio:
If you’ve subscribed and want to help an artist directly, 25% of your monthly subscription can be designated to “back” the 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.
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 over 100 plays on those other sites. Each quarter, we designate 15% of our revenue to our Reaction Royalty pot. We distribute this revenue share to our artists according to the percent of the total unique listener likes their songs received during the period. In other words, we compensate artists every time they connect with a listener.
We want to help artists help themselves by building consistent, predictable income through our backer program. And while we can't do it all, the more you work with us, the more we'll work to help you. That's what our artist tier program is all about. Here are the details:
Listener subscriptions are $7.99 per month. Artists can sign up and add their songs to our platform for free.
You select the genre, mood, location, your adventure settings, and save these settings into custom stations. You can also manually search for and add songs to the listening queue or your own custom playlist. In the background, our proprietary algorithm uses your behavior on our site to find the music that is most likely to connect with you.
After you subscribe, you can access your account right here at www.timbredio.com and you can also download our app!
Provide a unique listening experience to your customers that's powered by local, independent musicians. This will not only help the careers of those artists, but it will enhance your customers' experience by making them feel more connected to your product.
Commercial subscriptions are $20/month for a single location. If you have multiple locations, sign up for our multi-location plan which allows up to 5 locations for just $50/month.
Similar to standard accounts, 37.5% of gross revenue will go to the artistic community. For a single location subscription, this means that $5 will go to the artist selected by the business, and $2.50 will go into the reaction royalty pool. However, since listeners do not have the opportunity to "like" a song when they here in a business, we distribute based on plays for commercial accounts.
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.
