We’re proud to announce our partnership with Groover Obsessions, the streaming artist accelerator created by Groover, an innovative french platform that helps artists promote their music and connects them with industry professionals. As NFTs are disrupting the music industry and offering musicians a new source of revenue, this partnership aims to integrate NFTs into the careers of artists who already benefit from Groover’s support. The Groover Obsessions Collection will be available on Pianity starting Tuesday 7th of September.
Creating a new ecosystem around NFTs to make them accessible to all artists
Launched in July 2021, Pianity is the first and only French NFT music platform where musicians and their community can create, sell, buy and collect limited edition tracks certified by blockchain technology. NFTs give back control of the value of their work, meanwhile, fans support their artists by purchasing a reproduction with a unique certificate of authenticity, impossible to counterfeit, but that can be kept, exchanged or sold. The NFT’s value will then increase depending on the number of editions, its scarcity, the exclusive contents associated, and the artist’s community.
For Kevin Primicerio, co-founder of Pianity, “thanks to NFTs, we offer artists a way to create value around music. It is a new source of income, opportunity, and independence for musicians. Our goal is to bring this new technology to the entire music industry and to create an ecosystem that takes into account new formats and new uses to develop artistic careers.”
Integrate NFTs to develop exclusive tracks and improve artists’ revenue
In less than 3 years of existence, Groover has established itself as a significant player in promoting and connecting artists and music professionals. Through an innovative system that guarantees to more than 50.000 user artists to be listened to, they received more than 700,000 feedback on their tracks from the 1,200 media and active professionals. These connections have led to more than 150,000 sharing opportunities (articles, radio broadcasts, etc.) and more than 300 signatures in label, publishing, or management for the platform’s artists.
In parallel with its international development — more than 50% of the activity is made outside France, particularly in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Italy … -, the young company accompanies artists further in the consolidation and evolution of their projects. In 2021, Groover launched Groover Obsessions, the first artist accelerator for the best artists discovered on the platform. Already 20 artists benefit from operational and personalized support, leading to decisive opportunities to develop their careers.
“In our perpetual quest for the best solutions to accelerate the careers of Groover and Groover Obsessions artists, it seemed natural for us to better understand and integrate NFTs by partnering with Pianity” said Dorian Perron, co-founder of Groover. While the demand and interest for this new format continue to grow, which offers interesting opportunities, nevertheless, the success of an NFT requires strategies and specific support that we’ll provide to our artists together with Pianity.”
