Artist Share prides itself as the first fan funding platform, launching back in 2003. Ahead of its time then, Artist Share today has carved out a unique niche in the crowdfunding space. Its platform was built specifically for musicians, and is the premiere choice for Grammy award winners and other professional musicians at the top of their game. The service is invite-only, so you’ll have to pass an application process to get in. If Artist Share thinks its share of your crowdfunding campaign is lucrative, you’ll get white-glove service to ensure its success. Artist Share also runs a music publishing administration company.
