  • I've been blown away by the value that Merlin adds. They cut out middleman fees and and put us directly in a position to make the biggest impact for our digital business. They give us access to sides of the business we never knew existed.

    James Rhodes, Vice President & Co-Founder

  • Merlin has opened the horizons for KVZ to enter areas of the music distribution business where it was previously impossible to compete; areas reserved and occupied only for the big 3 majors. One can strike a deal with DSPs directly, but they would not have been as favorable as those negotiated by Merlin.

    Kiril Zdravkov, CEO
    KVZ Music (Bulgaria)
    Member Since 2010

  • In our competitive industry, Merlin's advocacy is indispensable to ensuring fair competition for independent music labels.

  • Merlin eliminates obstacles to help our organisation partner with new platforms, increases our revenues worldwide through marketing opportunities, and provides us with resources and assistance through a team of experts.

  • Without Merlin, we would not be able to run our business the way we currently do. Merlin enables us to have the best deals possible and ensures swift payment from all the DSPs.
