Artists earn a fraction of a penny for every stream, which doesn’t reflect the value you create with your work. It’s time for something better. Co-founded by DJ/producer TOKiMONSTA, Sona is an artist-centric streaming platform that tilts streaming economics back in your favor. We connect you with the superfans and collectors who want to support your growth so you can keep more of the value you create with your music.
There are two ways to earn on Sona: you earn per stream based on the song’s pro-rata share of total streams, and by selling SONAs, which are one-of-a-kind digital twins of specific songs that split streaming rewards with their owners.
Why wait? Unlock latent value in your catalog by earning streaming rewards and selling SONAs — without cannibalizing other revenues or giving up your rights. It’s a whole new way to capitalize on your creativity.
Fans that collect your SONAs are your ride-or-dies, since there can only be one owner of a SONA at a time. You know exactly who they are; it’s the purest connection point to your fiercest fans.
Verify your songs on the platform so that they’re eligible to earn Sona streaming rewards.
Once your music is published, you can start claiming your streaming rewards. These pay out every month via your Artist Dashboard.
To unlock the full value of your song, schedule it for auction. Once it’s live, fans and collectors have 24 hours to bid. You can set a minimum price and try again if it doesn’t sell the first time. This is totally optional; all published songs still earn streaming rewards.
We do! Sona plugs into your existing agreements with distributors and labels.
Every month to start and then roughly every two weeks as the platform grows.
Nope! As long as you’ve published your songs to the platform, your songs will earn their pro-rata share of streaming rewards on Sona.
We take a 7% transaction fee on every SONA sold. This is then split into two buckets: 2% for Sona and 5% to fund the streaming rewards pool.
Nope! When you sell a SONA, you’re sharing 70% of the streaming rewards on the Sona platform, nowhere else. This allows fans to support the artists they love without affecting existing revenue streams.
