half circle iconWho are we?

Grüv's mission is to empower musical creatives, promote autonomy, involve fans in the success of their favorite artists (and labels), and reward all involved parties.
We believe the that the solutions to many of the music industry's problems (for artists *and* fans) lie at the intersection of decentralized technologies, artist-centric tools and software, and user-centric services. Our platform aims to solve these problems. Our vision is focused on independent artists, independent labels, and the fans who love them.

Cantus

Members curate, share, and monetize, playlists comprised of disparate sources (YouTube/Spotify/SoundCloud). Curators expose self-published/unknown artists in a single place and get paid for honest curation efforts, while abstracting the experience of organizing their favorite music into a single interface. The value to listeners is convenience and quality, while the value to artists is focused audience engagement and increased streaming revenues.
