In April we wrote about Sony Music investing in a startup called Tully, founded by US artist Joyner Lucas, which had an app that was part distribution service, and part suite of tools for artists to manage both music creation and their business. Now Tully is expanding its offering with something called ‘Tully Platform’, including several tiers of premium subscription.
Artists paying $9.95 a month will get Tully Pro, with 500GB of storage, better security, file-sharing and collaboration features, and discounts on buying from its premium beats catalogue. Those paying $29 a month will get Tully Team, which more tools and multiple user access, plus the ability to organise tracks into EPs and albums. And there’s a tier for managers too, Tully AMP, for $59 a month.
Sony Music is clearly taking a keen interest still, too: “We continue to be impressed by their creative-first approach to Tully’s product evolution,” said the label’s president, global digital business and US sales Dennis Kooker in a statement accompanying the announcement.
