Music-making platform Splice has worked with a number of professional artists and producers on sample packs to offer to its subscribers. Now it’s getting some starry names on board as advisors. The company has created a ‘Global Music Council’ to advise it as it grows beyond its current four million users.
Chaired by Something in Common and Black Music Action Coalition’s Caron Veazey, the group includes Mr Eazi and Imogen Heap from the artists world, as well as industry executives Mathew Daniel (NetEase Cloud Music), Hussain ‘Spek’ Yoosuf (PopArabia) and Ebonie Smith (Atlantic Studios).
Besides offering Splice an artistic and industry perspective on how it should grow, the council will have a diversity remit: to make sure that Splice supports underrepresented musicians.
“We’re all fans of the work Splice is doing to advance freedom for creators everywhere, and this team will bring a creator perspective to the work they are already doing,” said Veazey.
