We created Musicraiser Accelerator because we wanted to find an innovative way to gather like-minded artists and rethink all the dynamics of the music industry by giving access to a powerful service that would help artists keeping their music independence and, at the same time, realize their projects with the maximum exposure to the public! The Accelerator assists the artist throughout all the stages of the publication of a new album, from fundraising to music distribution (physical and digital), from the production to the promotion, providing all the services of a record label.

It's an alternative to self-production or to the continuous knocking on the record labels doors, a meritocratic way to involve the public and lead them into a collective successful experience.

What is it?

Artists who join the Musicraiser Accelerator receive our support for the creation of a customized crowdfunding campaign to be published directly on the Musicraiser platform.

During the campaign, 7 different promotional levels can be unlocked according to the number of raisers involved (i.e. persons who book one or more rewards created by the artist). Each level consists of unique services offered by Musicraiser, which aim to enhance and give more visibility to the artist's project.

The most important level is the 7th, which can be reached by involving 250 raisers, that entitles the artist to a digital distribution proposal plus a customized push promo dedicated to the launch of the album. We will be happy to produce all the artists of any musical genre that will reach this level.
All previous levels include important awards as well, such as the free printing of the booked CDs, free mastering, exposure on Musicraiser's social media and to its community of over 135.000 people.
Awards are always based on the number of participants of a Musicraiser campaign.
Every time you unlock a level you have the right to new awards that add up to the previous ones.

The offer is in no way binding and can be rejected by the artist.
Any refusal will not affect the disbursement of the funds collected.

If the offer is accepted, the artist will also be entitled to free access to the services of a press office specifically dedicated to the promotion of his/her album; in the event of rejection of the proposal, the artist will not be entitled to press office services.

The record deal offered by Musicraiser must be accepted or rejected in its entirety. Partial acceptance is not possible.
Musicraiser also reserves the possibility of presenting the proposal for distribution to any project on the platform, including projects with less than 250 raisers.

The release date of the album will be agreed with the label.

The artist will remain the owner of the master of the album and Musicraiser will not influence the artistic choices of the musician, who will retain his freedom and creative independence.

The press office will undertake to promote the project to media of the music sector that are in line with the genre of the album, trying to enhance it with original ideas and aiming to gain visibility on radio, television, webzines, and press through reviews, articles, and interviews.

How much does it cost?

The project proposal, the campaign manager's advice, and campaign launch are totally free.

Musicraiser holds a commission only at the end of the campaign and only if it succeeds (i.e. if it will have reached or exceeded 100 % of its economic objective).
