We are ecstatic to announce the appointment of our company's founder and CEO, Bruno Guez to the board of Merlin Network. Merlin is a recognized global champion of independent music, securing the digital rights and assets of artists represented by independent labels around the world.
Bruno joins fourteen other board members who together will shape Merlin’s global strategy to ensure that independents have a vehicle to enhance their ability to compete in the ever-changing world of digital music as well as to protect the value of their rights. Over 20,000 independent labels have joined Merlin Network, realizing substantial benefits gained from collectivized rights management. Combined, the independent labels working with Merlin publish an estimated 12% of the world’s digital music.
A lifetime champion for the global soul of music, Bruno is a natural fit to advise an international agency dedicated to protecting the rights of independent labels. As an ethnomusicology major at UCLA, Bruno spent his college nights DJing on the flagship NPR radio station KCRW 89.9 FM, and in upscale Los Angeles nightclubs.
After college, Bruno launched his own record label, Quango Records, he continued to curate the world’s music, developing talent with Island Records and later with entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil. Today, Bruno’s winding career has led him to Revelator, a company he founded on his belief that it should be easy for independent artists and creators to manage their ownership rights online.
Established in 2012, Revelator is a leader in multi-territorial IP rights management. Revelator Copyright Cloud is an enterprise-grade, turnkey solution for music professionals to digitally manage their intellectual property rights and bank earned royalties quickly and efficiently. In the near future, the platform will expand beyond music to other creative mediums (e.g. video, apps, books, etc.). Our mission at Revelator is to provide the tools and services that simplify artistic finance, freeing the artist to do business creatively.
