One of Dubai's most recognized music companies, AudioSwim, has chosen Philadelphia for its first expansion into the United States.
Music Distribution, royalty investment and NFT platform, AudioSwim, is expanding into the United States, just weeks after helping Nigerian based artist, Rema, reach number 1 on the newly established Official MENA charts, the company thinks that now is the time for musicians in the region to start thinking global. After securing a small investment, AudioSwim is now ready to take Philadelphia based musicians onto new heights.
“The opportunity for music start-ups in Philadelphia’s music scene is enormous,” said Albert Carter, Philadelphia native and AudioSwim’s Founder and Managing Director.
“Philadelphia has clearly got a long history in music and is one of the fastes growing music scenes in the country. Add that with the growing digital economy, Philadelphia can rival any other major city in the states” Carter stated. Musicians operating both online and offline in the city can now use AudioSwim to upload their latest music releases to traditional streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, TikTok, Instagram and more or artists who want to sell their royalties or NFT’s can now do so in a one stop shop.
AudioSwim can be a catalyst for other global music brands to focus on the the city’s booming music scene and expand their various products and services to help grow musicians in the region to international heights.
There are a lot of great local musicians that haven’t yet took their talents to a global level. One of the ways that will help them grow their fanbase and therefore help other demographics to resonate with music investors is opening up these new markets.
AudioSwim was founded in 2020, during the global lockdown measures that took place across the globe. This helped cast the spotlight on the various ways that artist can monetize their music.
“When you have a combination of talent, investment, and creativity its a formula for success as a musician. So our goal is that we help to showcase established and emerging talent to the world.
