Stage Republic is the vehicle of expression of eclectic Dutch singer-songwriter Raven. Raven used Music Xray to pre-launch his new album, in which individual songs were almost immediately picked up by Music Xray MIP’s Charlie Mac, Eddie Sea, Zilah Music Publishing, Pulse Records, Music Boulevard Group and a number of others. In a couple months time, all 11 songs on the album have been picked up for synching opportunities in film, TV, sport events and ads. Some MIPs have also licensed Raven’s entire back catalog for synching purposes.
Raven: “It’s an amazing feeling to have all the songs contracted out even before the official launch of the Stage Republic album. I’m a very small artist without the support of a major marketing machine behind me. I had no way of getting the attention of people with credible music networks in the US. Music Xray has change all that or me. It’s given me the opportunity to be heard, critiqued and selected by some amazing people that are actively representing and pushing the music because they believe in the songs.”
Being successful on Music Xray has changed raven’s position to the extent that it is now helping him to gather interest for his Stage Republic album in his home country. Music Xray has enabled Raven to develop a new business model for himself that works and attracts attention. Pre-releasing the songs for synching has put him in a position where he can now give away the entire album to his fans for free. Download the Stage republic album HERE.
