GigCave Reaches Milestones of 10,000 EPKs and 35,000 Artists
GigCave offers free dynamic EPK creation and hosting, along with a groundbreaking mentoring program
Cloud-based platform GigCave announced that after just over one year, it is now being used by 35,000 artists. The platform has filled an important niche and resonates with musicians. According to GigCave CEO and creator Anthony Tedesco, "we created GigCave because we knew that musicians needed a way to better control their careers and find their audiences."
He added, "While we initially set up GigCave as an American platform, we've been buoyed by the fact that musicians from countries as far away as Germany, China, and Brazil are discovering the benefits of using GigCave."
He added that GigCave now hosts approximately 10,000 EPKs. Having a well-designed, informative EPK is important for every musician, allowing artists to tell their stories and create connections in the industry.
One artist who has embraced the GigCave platform is musician Brandon Jeffries, who goes by the stage name of ICE. Jeffries is a musician who believes in the soul of music and does not want the business aspects to take too much time away from his art. Jeffries, an early user of GigCave, has had his EPK there since April of 2015 and attributes some of his increased reach this year to the platform.
Jeffries said, "I've always set out to have my music speak for itself. GigCave helps me expand my audience and enables me to better control the performances we schedule."
GigCave's innovative mentoring program is one of the premium features that sets it apart. This program allows musicians to tap into a network of industry pros for help with a wide range of issues, such as songwriting tips, ways of improving live performances, and getting the most out of studio recording sessions. GigCave has Grammy Award-winning musicians, accomplished writers, and classical powerhouses available to provide guidance to program participants.
