Revelator is the first SaaS platform to offer access to its API to allow music and non-music businesses to distribute music, provide analytics, and manage payments to artists.

More websites than ever are realizing the value that music provides to their product, but very few are sure how to go about building out a product that is artist-friendly and makes sure payment and data needs are met. Revelator is changing the game with the release of its API Developer Platform, which provides a turnkey ‘Business-as-a-Service’ set of APIs for all music and content businesses who want to build new products or integrate services to their own platform.

The first partner to use the API is Wix, the world’s largest website development service. Revelator’s API will help deliver a comprehensive solution for all the digital needs of musicians, and will be a must have tool for artists seeking to take full ownership of their careers.

The APIs offer Metadata, Music Distribution, Rights Management, Reporting, and Analytics and can be integrated individually or in combination to support the complex data processing required for music distribution, reporting and royalty payment.

Revelator’s Developer Suite Helps Increase Revenues for Many Artists

The last few years have seen an explosion in the number of websites looking to integrate music into their core products and help musicians spread their songs and get paid for doing so. Big sites like Flipagram and Vine have started offering a wide range of music to supplement photo slideshows and short videos, respectively, while other website providers like Squarespace have reached out the music community as a place for artists to host their sites. But the music industry remains a complicated place, and other sites have surely shied away from going big with music because of worries about licensing and royalty payments. With the release of the API, Revelator hopes to provide a solution for any site that wants to work with artists.

Revelator’s APIs cover the full stack of back-end services for music distribution. We designed Wix Music to be an end-to-end solution for the music market. A natural technical partner, integrating the Revelator API into our product, helped us achieve that,” said Ohad Bolotin, Head of Wix Music.
