Portugal, 29th October 2021 The Portuguese-based music distribution and services company, SINFONIASUBLIME, founded by Maria Da Silva at the beginning of 2021, has announced a membership with MERLIN Network, a member-led, music-focused organization providing digital music licensing for independent record labels, distributors, and other music rights holders worldwide.
With a 24-7 support system via WhatsApp, SINFONIASUBLIME is the only music distributor who offers real-human support at all times in English and Portuguese.
“We are thrilled to welcome SINFONIASUBLIME, a Portuguese-based distributor, to the Merlin membership,” said Jeremy Sirota, CEO, Merlin. “Merlin’s collective approach to licensing will deliver premium deals to help them earn more revenue and better support their artists, as well as offer access to unique opportunities with digital partners around the world.”
On a mission to expand, provide maximum royalty transparency and a wide-ranging set of tools and benefits to independent musicians and labels, SINFONIASUBLIME sought out a membership with MERLIN, who’s known for securing premium deals and competitive rates with digital music providers like Spotify, Tencent, TikTok and, most recently, Apple Music.
“We couldn’t be more excited to embark on this new journey together with MERLIN. And to be able to achieve this partnership in just over 8 months since the company’s birth is absolutely exciting!” said Maria Da Silva, founder and CEO of SINFONIASUBLIME Music Distribution.
Maria is one of few women who run their own music business in an industry that’s currently dominated by men, and now she’s using her position to help musicians grow in the industry and show the world that a female can also be a leader in the music industry.
SINFONIASUBLIME provides independent artists and labels a free distribution service to platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and a 100+ other platforms worldwide, as well as offering a full suite of services covering strategic marketing and release planning, publishing administration, sync licensing, comprehensive graphic design and a wide range of other services all with the determination of showing transparency, collaboration and direct feedback.
Since SINFONIASUBLIME’s staff is made up of artists themselves, the company’s main purpose is to be transparent with royalty reports and to give all clients a very personalized approach and one that is aiming to help develop and grow artists’ careers, record labels, managers, and more, by giving them the necessary tools to make it happen.
