Two pioneering internet-based jazz brands team to fuel a wellspring of creative projects.
For more than 13 years, ArtistShare has pioneered the industry of fan-funding and today is the most respected brand in artist career development through fan engagement. After 29 Grammy nominations and 10 Grammy winning fan-funded projects, ArtistShare has extended their expertise and innovative spirit to the global creative community with the announcement of Launchpad.

Launchpad offers artists a platform to fund creative projects while actively engaging with and acquiring new fans. By allowing artists to raise funds while sharing their story in real time, Launchpad not only provides an effective solution for the creation of new artistic works but also builds the long term relationships needed to insure the creation of future projects.

Launchpad for Jazz Musicians

  • The ultimate fan-engagement model based on 13+ years of proven success by ArtistShare;
  • Complete artistic and financial freedom;
  • 100% ownership and control of all creative works;
  • Fulfillment and distribution services built right in;
  • Build on successive projects creating a sustainable career in the creative arts;
  • Actively engage with and acquire new fans.

About ArtistShare

Founded in 2003, ArtistShare is the first “crowd funding” platform that connects artists with fans in order to share the creative process and fund new artistic works. As an innovator in this business model, unlike the companies that have followed, ArtistShare focuses on the equal relationship of the Artist and the Fan, creating an environment and destination for the best fan support in the industry.

The BlueNote/ArtistShare label is a partnership forged by ArtistShare Founder and CEO, Brian Camelio, the late Chairman Emeritus of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall, and current President of Blue Note Records, Don Was. ArtistShare projects have received countless awards and the artist roster includes some of today's most prestigious artists including Pulitzer prize and Oscar nominated writers, Guggenheim fellowship recipients, Grammy winners and NEA Jazz Masters.

* Musician profile upgrade spans the duration of the Launchpad campaign.
