MIME believes Independent Musicians are the next big thing. Talented folks who have creative vision, immeasurable value and a product people love and use more than anything else. Over the last decade, we have seen just how much music has been devalued to .0007¢ per/stream or a download-n-done experience. Well, that ends here. MIME is on a one-way course to disrupt the music industry and bring countless artists back into the spotlight. We invite all musicians/bands to turn those awesome sounds into shares of stock, so fans the world-over can invest directly in your career.

Let's get started...
We hope this answers your questions.
Welcome Independent Musicians/Bands. No doubt you are curious about what we are doing, here on MIME. First, make no mistake, we designed and built this concept with you as the focal point, consulting with all types of musicians and savvy industry professionals, who have been around more than a few minutes. We are not "another" tech company looking to gain reputation, then sell to a bigger firm -or worse, a mainstream driven firm. We are and always will be Independent -just like you.
Why Offer Music Stock In My Music?
MIME sees Independent Musicians like start-up companies that have vision, value and a product everyone enjoys. However, the current mediums of Download and Stream are not meeting the expectations of musicians. By offering stock in music, it increases the band value, exposure, global influence, access to more resources, income and, most importantly, lasting connectivity to fans everywhere.
Are My Rights and Royalties Effected?
All Independent Musicians on MIME keep 100% copy and distribution rights to their music, because it's your music.
Setting Up Your Profile
Your profile on MIME is much more than a band selfie and a link to follow on Twitter. It enables us to showcase you on-site and literally jack you into a dozen or more off-site platforms. So, needless to say, a completed profile matters. Add background photo, social media links, bio and up-to ten (10) tracks to your personalized radio station.
