Why How What

"We believe in a digital music environment where independent artists/labels don’t have to compete with major record companies.


We value content creators and just love discovering new independent music. Everything we do is about enhancing independent music exposure and encouraging music’s creative process.

We believe that we can aid independent artists with their quest for an audience by providing them an alternative new digital music service called Hoobz: A platform that allows independent artists to connect with their fans, sell their music directly to their fans and where you can truly discover awesome independent music."

Add band members to your Artist Profile. Wether you’re a singer/ songwriter, drummer, or lead vocalist, chances are that you are active in more than 1 band and every band has multiple band member roles. It enables fans to discover other artists as well.

Share your store

Easily share your personal music store, which is integrated in your Hoobz profile with your followers. This is a real sales stimulator, not only because of its fast-paced user interface, but also because of its practical implementation.

Transparency

People that listen to music for music’s sake, not just because it’s in vogue, deserve a platform where they can truly explore independent music, made by artists that are fairly compensated.

The Hoobz cornerstone

Inspire, connect and be passionate about independent music

Mission

Our mission is to inspire and connect independent musicians and their fans by offering them the most user-friendly online music discovery platform

Vision

Our vision is to be the alternative, artist-friendly paradigm that redefines the way in which music is discovered and consumed

 

Integrity

We promise to never compromise our mission by allowing major record labels to interfere with our vision.

If the record industry in its current state were more artist-friendly and less focused on maximizing profit, there would be no need for Hoobz. The primary reason for our existence is to offer artists and their fans a fair environment.

Passion

We are passionate about discovering new independent music and the whole experience that comes along with the journey in doing so. Everything we do, we do with passion. We don't take "no" or "that'll never work" for an answer. "A revolution is unlikely to take place without a riot".

Diversity

Independent music can be very titillating. We have found that there is much more diversity to be found in the indie circuit than music that is offered by major record companies. At Hoobz we stimulate originality and diversity.

Respect

We have tremendous respect for independent artists and the work they put in. We recognise that without musicians there is no music industry. We salute you all and thank you gratefully for all the beautiful experiences and rich emotions you share with us.
