unbias consists of buyers (investors) and sellers (artists who want to transform future royalty revenue into up-front capital). 

we source artists using data across multiple genres in different stages of their careers. some artists are sourced by partners and vetted by our internal team of music industry experts. we then arrange an agreement to receive royalties of a song up to 1-3 years, or a catalog of songs, at a specific price (usually at a discount).

a song is approved or denied based on factors like an artist’s historical streaming performance, song viability, copyright issues, distributor relationship, and more.

once approved, the song’s future royalties are put under contract by a newly formed entity. the entity is then fractionalized into shares for you to invest. 

once the song is fully funded by investors, the entity will close on the song and all future royalties payments will be transferred to the new entity shareholders.
