Bruno Guez – music industry veteran, musician, business owner, and entrepreneur – has an impressive resume and a bias to making forward-thinking ideals a reality. His most recent endeavor is the Revelator, a company focused on integrating sales, marketing, accounting and analytics into one unified system to provide unprecedented transparency, simplicity and efficiency for both independent artists and record labels.
- The music industry will always be broken if there isn’t a more automated or efficient marketplace where all the endpoints are connected and the data is moving and flowing more freely.
- In the next five to ten years there won’t be any more gatekeepers (radio, labels, digital service providers) as we move to a decentralized and distributed environment, where the artist will be able to connect directly with their fan-base and audience.
- Revelator has created a scalable infrastructure for unlimited transactions – similar to PayPal, Visa, and the Bitcoin Blockchain – thus allowing real time data, real time transactions, and real time payments for artists.
- To get to a place where there are no gatekeepers in the music industry, we need better mobile applications that not only manage audiences, but also market to them that keep them engaged.
