"Without Trustshoring, this would have taken a much longer process from going to an idea to the development of a functional product to launch. The engineers they gave us were pre-vetted, so we had the peace of mind knowing we’ve got an experienced team."

About Symphony

Symphony is a company that helps artists and creatives take advantage of digital tools to grow and connect with their fan base. The company was started by Co-Founders Megh Vakharia and Chuka Chase who started an LA-based agency in 2016 that was focused on helping well-known artists with their websites and digital rollouts. The company was called Integral Studio.

Symphony has been fortunate enough to work with everyone from 21 Savage, Future, 88Rising, and Chance the Rapper – and learned from every campaign how to best use marketing to grow a fanbase.

When Megh and the team at Symphony came to us, they wanted to build four different apps in one ecosystem, including tools to run ads and collect fan information. The software needed to be fast, interactive, and efficient to allow artists to seamlessly access information about their fan base, its growth, and how to reach them better.

In 2022, Symphony released v1 to the world, the first marketing platform built specifically for the next million independent artists. Symphony’s goal is to bring together various tools to help artists understand their fan base, grow their fan base, and connect more deeply with their fans.

In 2023, Symphony announced that it had closed a $1 million pre-seed fundraising round from strategic investors from the music and tech sectors.

Outcomes

  • As of 2023, The platform has processed upwards of $350,000 worth of marketing budget, with artist spending growing 30% every month.
  • The app today has been able to integrate the power of AI offering artists more efficient ways to measure their growth and performance. The AI automatically tracks artists’ fan bases and content across every platform to deliver insights and suggest marketing and fan engagement tactics.
  • Since launching their beta which was in May 2022, Symphony now has over 5,000 artists using our platform.
  • In August of 2023, Symphony announced that it had raised $1 million in a pre-seed funding round.
