Wayne Hampton, Jonathan Strauss and Alexandre Williams named Billboard’s 2020 Indie Power Players

Create Music Group, which focuses on unsigned artists that self-release their music, reports that it surpassed $100 million in revenue in 2019. Moreover, it says that it has 500 clients alone that generate $3,000 per month in revenue. “We’re laser-focused on creating a middle class for the music industry,” says Strauss, “and we believe that over the next five years, as we expand globally, we will have over 10,000 artists that are able to support themselves entirely through streaming royalties — something that has never been possible in the industry traditionally dominated by a select few.”

Advice for a Young Indie Artist: “Make quick decisions, release music, engage with fans and be authentic.” – Strauss
