Rostr is the ‘AngelList for the music industry’ startup whose launch Music Ally reported on earlier this year, including the fact that its CEO Mark Williamson was formerly Spotify’s global head of artist and industry partnerships.

As the year ends, Rostr is promoting itself with a data-driven report looking at the world of music management, based on its database of more than 5,000 companies and their artists.

The report looks at which management companies have the largest rosters, with Red Light’s 365-strong lineup – an artist for every day of the year! – taking top spot, five times larger than the next company in the chart.

But Rostr has also been totting up the monthly listener counts on Spotify for all of these companies’ artists: it claims that Maverick tops that chart, with 455 million monthly Spotify listeners across its artists (yes, maths fans, this isn’t unique listeners – many will be listening to a bunch of the company’s artists).

Meanwhile, SB Projects tops a third chart ranking management companies by the average number of Spotify listeners per act – 13 million in their case. There’s more to dig in to on the full report.
