Topspin Media – Another Investment A Long Time in the Making

We announced Our Investment in Topspin Media today.  My partner Ryan McIntyre has a long post up titled Topspin, Baby! that describes the history of how the investment came together over the past ten years.  Ian Rogers – the CEO of Topspin who was profiled in TechCrunch a few weeks ago in the article Ex-Yahoo Music GM Ian Rogers Launches Topspin Media has a nice a post up on the Topspin blog titled Old Friends, New Opportunities

Oh – and there is that really cool Billboard cover and article.

As a special bonus, Ryan blogged the text from The Declaration of Independence yesterday.  This seemed somehow fitting when you consider what Topspin is planning to do for music artists.

    Congratulations on Topspin! With the market trend in the music world slanting more towards artists handling their own music promotion/distribution and utilizing their own staff in conjunction with entities like Live Nation, I think that is a great investment. I posted on my blog about a new service working with Artists for free distribution to the general public. It's in beta and called Qtrax.
