ChazBo Music, a Los Angeles-based music tech startup, announces the rollout of its beta platform to offer artists a music video distribution and promotions platform to reach thousands of viewers and businesses a FREE cloud-based music video digital signage solution.
Founded in June 2012 by Dae Bogan, a veteran entertainment industry consultant and retail executive, ChazBo Music offers themed and branded cloud-based MusiChannels to which businesses of all types (clothing stores, coffee shops, billiards, bars, skate shops, pizza shops, and more) can subscribe to offer their customers music entertainment that complements the establishment’s environment while enhancing their customers’ experience. CM’s MusiChannels is a FREE service to businesses of any unit size. The company boasts “No Monthly Service Fee. No Hardware Required. No Installation Required. No Software Downloads Required.”
CM’s cloud-based MusiChannels are distributed over the Internet and displayed in any web browser that launches in full screen mode on TVs in stores. The company also offers premium media players to support stand-alone kiosks and displays.
The service was developed to meet the needs of thousands of small and medium sized businesses who seek to offer music videos in their establishments but cannot offered the costly service fees or upfront hardware costs of ChazBo Music competitors.
“I’ve spent the last nearly 4 years as the VP of Marketing of one of the coolest urban contemporary retail chains in the country reaching millions of visitors per month,” said Bogan, “and still I had a difficult time finding a solution that met our needs to provide music videos in our 100+ stores. ChazBo Music solves that problem!” CM’s MusiChannels are powered by its music video distribution and promotions platform for artists and record labels. Artists can sign-up for a FREE account to submit music videos directly to the MusiChannel of their choice. Cool features such as an interactive map allows artists to pinpoint exactly when and where music videos will air; empowering them with tools to create unique promotions such as “Tweet a photo of my MV to receive FREE download of my song!”
CM has signed a major subscription deal with Shiekh Shoes, the leading urban contemporary footwear and apparel retailer in the US, to supply its 150+ US locations with a branded MusiChannel called ShiekhTV.
“Shiekh Shoes is a special customer for us,” Bogan explains, “not only because they are our first big customer, but because the company has a history of supporting independent artists and music in their communities. They get it and will be an awesome outlet for artists to gain exposure!”
CM has begun to team up with several record labels and management companies such as Def Jam Recordings, Stampede Management (manages Snoop Dogg, Mystikal, DJ Quick, YG, Far East Movement, The Airplane Boys, Kendre, Mali Nicole, Corib, and Shrona) and Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment (manages Cory Gunz, New Boys, The Rangers, Colette Carr, School Gyrls, Wonder Broz, Gabi Wilson, and Hero) to distribute music videos from more emerging and established artists in addition to its indie artist catalog.
