Sonicbids has announced it has acquired ArtistData, the web-service that helps artists manage their online presence. Sonicbids primarily exists to help unsigned bands score gigs, and hopes many of those bands will now use ArtistData to promote their shows.

Sonicbids founder Panos Panay told CMU: “We are hyper-focused on delivering value to our customers, and ArtistData was the most frequently requested partnership from our members. Helping bands connect with promoters is great, but we were missing a piece of the puzzle in helping bands and promoters get the word out about those gigs to bring in the fans. ArtistData’s founder Brenden Mulligan really nailed this, and it’s clear based on ArtistData’s traction in the market. We’re very excited to welcome him and his ideas to our company to help further grow our product”.

The there mentioned Mulligan added: “The combined offering of Sonicbids and ArtistData is extremely powerful, as it makes it easier than ever for artists to manage their touring all in one place. Sonicbids has spent almost ten years growing a sustainable business around helping artists and constantly reinvests into the independent music ecosystem. I’m proud to join the team and can’t wait to help Sonicbids make substantial progress and add lasting value to their platform”.
