About Jeff Price
Jeff Price launched Audiam in June 2013 with a clear goal in mind: get creators paid for the use of their music on YouTube and other interactive music streaming services. With big name investors like Jimmy Buffet, Jason Mraz, and Bill Silva, Audiam now represents the publishing catalogs of Dolly Parton, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Trent Reznor, Graham Nash, and many others.
Prior to founding Audiam, Price launched TuneCore with Peter Wells and Gary Burke in 2006. In his six years as CEO/president, TuneCore’s customer base sold over 1 billion units of music, generating over $600,000,000 in gross music sales.
Price is also co-founder and served as general manager/president of the New York-based independent record label, spinART Records (with artists like Pixies, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Richard Thompson), for 17 years. SpinART Records was the first record label in the music industry to offer its catalog of releases via paid download as mp3s.
