D2C firm Bandzoogle has acquired one of its peers, Onesheet, for an undisclosed amount. Onesheet is the service launched two years ago by Brenden Mulligan as a way for musicians to pull data and content from all their social-media profiles into one place (Bulletin, 8-Jul-11). It signed up more than 10k artists in its first month, and then launched in version 2.0 in January 2012 expanding beyond music to actors, comedians and filmmakers (Bulletin, 9-Jan-12). Bandzoogle, which helps artists run their own websites to promote and sell music and has more than 20k paying users, will be relaunching Onesheet as a freemium element for its service. “We knew eventually we were either going to compete, partner or acquire the company since the beginning, because it was the missing piece in our product offering,” CEO David Dufresne tells TechCrunch. Mulligan has published his own blog post explaining that Bandzoogle has bought the Onesheet service, but that its team are moving on to do other things. For him, that means “focusing 100% of my attention on Cluster” a group photo-sharing app. He’s chuffed with leaving Bandzoogle in charge though: “They know how to create, market, and sell web services for bands. Onesheet is in very very good hands.”
