As a direct outcome, the artist recently garnered the attention of a major label, resulting in a $250,000 marketing budget and a deal with the label. This success story exemplifies the effectiveness of our platform and the value we bring to artists."

    -  Continued additions of new artists and Independent Labels directly to Intercept Music’s platform.

“Thrilled with the results, we’re absolutely stoked to report such incredible growth in 2022, and want to thank our clients, partners, and investors for their trust and support," said Tod Turner, Intercept Music CEO.

Music Legend Coolio’s Estate Selects Intercept Music, a Sanwire Subsidiary, For Global Music and Video Distribution

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – April 17th, 2023 - Sanwire Corporation ("Sanwire" or the "Company") (OTC PINK: SNWR), an entertainment technology innovator, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Intercept Music Inc ("Intercept Music") - a multi-faceted label and artist-centric platform solution provider, are pleased to announce a partnership 1Pic Entertainment, the Coolio Estate and Strategic Media Entertainment for the release of ten new singles and the first posthumous album release for well recognized artist, Coolio. This partnership is very significant to Intercept Music as it represents music from one of the most well-known names in the music streaming business.

 

Artis Leon Ivey Jr. (August 1, 1963 – September 28, 2022), known professionally as Coolio, was an American rapper. First rising to fame as a member of the Gangsta Rap group WC and the Maad Circle, Coolio achieved mainstream success as a solo artist in the mid-to-late 1990s with his albums It Takes a Thief (1994), Gangsta's Paradise (1995), and My Soul (1997). 

 

The multi-platinum Artist whose hit Gangsta’s Paradise rocketed to the top of the charts in 1996 and ultimately gained more than two billion streams, was a true pioneer in the HipHop world earning him a Grammy and six Grammy nominations. The combination of his subsequent music and his movie career kept him constantly in the limelight. His current 1.6 million social media fans and 13 million monthly Spotify listeners still put him in the top 1% of Spotify’s largest artists. Coolio passed away in September 2022.

 

Tag You It , the first of the ten new songs, features well known artists Too Short and DJ Wino and was just released. It will be followed by a series of singles with other well-known artists and accompanying videos that were all in the works before Coolio’s sudden death, and then followed by the final posthumous album.

 

“It took some serious work to get this partnership finalized,” said Bryan Dobbs, CEO of 1 Pic Entertainment. “Intercept Music was there with us every step of the way, working with attorneys and their distributor, InGrooves, and we finally solidified the partnership. We selected Intercept Music because of their incredible distribution through InGrooves, their phenomenal suite of global marketing tools, and support staff.”  The partnership was founded by industry veteran Billy Moss, CEO of Strategic Media Entertainment and a premier label with Intercept Music. 

 

“This is a major milestone for us, and we expect to generate substantial streaming revenues from this partnership,” said Tod Turner, Intercept CEO. “We are very grateful for the trust the Coolio estate has placed with us, and we are really excited to apply our marketing services to this incredible music and tell the world. These fresh new songs are tracks that Coolio was working on right up to the time he passed away. This is our chance to demonstrate to Coolio’s fans, the music industry and to our current and future independent artists how far we can move the needle.”

Sanwire Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2022 Record-Breaking Revenues, Provides Shareholder Update

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2022 / Sanwire Corporation ("Sanwire" or the "Company") (OTC PINK:SNWR), an entertainment technology innovator, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Intercept Music Inc ("Intercept") - a multi-faceted label and artist-centric platform solution provider, are pleased to announce third quarter 2022 financial performance results.

 

Third quarter 2022 was another record-breaking quarter for the Company, with revenues up 250% over second quarter 2022, and up 350% over third quarter 2021. Three main factors continue to drive revenues - our "everything" dashboard, our growing list of marketing services, and 100% data transparency.

 

The business model is solidifying. Labels continue to be our best source of artists. Since they bring their artist management and understanding of the business side, and they are able to oversee the artist involvement and the music marketing. We make the least margin on distribution, but the music drives demand for the marketing services, which are the highest margin and represent much more gross profit for us.

 

Until recently, marketing services were only available to our customers for music we distributed. In late September 2022, we began offering marketing services to outside artists and labels. Our internal customers receive a 20% discount if they are distributing their music through us. This has led to an increase in marketing service sales, which created another pathway to gain the trust of the artist that can lead to future distribution. As a result, we now have a full-time person identifying and vetting these services, and then prepare them for our reps to take to market. In January 2022 we had five marketing services to sell. Today we have 22 services, with 13 more in the queue. The average spend per new music release continues to rise.

 

We have many labels which have built their entire service offering around our platform. We see labels adding artists and buying marketing services on autopilot now. We've seen increases in the merchandise sales by artist. Our average artist, in terms of streams, marketing expenditures, and overall quality of music, has risen. Nine months ago, our largest artists had 700,000 monthly Spotify listeners. Today our largest has 25 million. Larger artists tend to spend more on marketing too.

 

We see positive responses from sophisticated labels, which has been reflected in some key partnerships. One of the recent ones was the Sapphire group of labels. Across Sapphire's four labels, they will bring their 120 artists over to our platform for distribution and marketing services, they intend to add another 100 artists over the next year, and they just added eight new marketing services for us to introduce to our existing artists and labels including mixing and sync licensing for movies, radio and television.

 

In September 2022, we expanded into the Latin market. Our website and software are now available in Spanish and Portuguese. We have multilingual staff who are trained and able to support every department, from customer sales, support, onboarding, marketing services and distribution. So far, we have 12 Latin marketing services available, including some not available in the U.S. Our new Latin sales team has signed one major Latin Artist (Marcos Menchaca - 1.2 million Spotify listeners), closed a label with 12 artists in Guadalajara and Mexico City, and an artist from Peru.

 

During fourth quarter 2022, we will continue to expand in the Latin markets. We also expect to announce several major global partnerships that will drive US sales in 2023. We will launch more marketing services, and we hope to add more music catalogs.

 

With several successive quarters of growth, the Company will be finalizing its funding and capital requirements for the medium term and should be done by the end of the fourth quarter 2022. We believe that with the explosion of music being created, the success of digital promotion, and the merger activities taking place within the music industry, the time is right now.

 

"I'd like to personally thank our shareholders; we could not have achieved these results without your support," said Tod Turner, Intercept's president. "We've laid out a strong growth foundation and an incredible team to execute."

 

"Intercept Music is proving to be an international force within the music industry," proudly stated Ron Hughes, CEO of Sanwire Corporation.

Most artists struggle to develop and establish connections with domestic and international DJs to heighten their music exposure. Exploiting relationships with high-profile DJs globally, DJ Pool and Playlisting Service promotes all music genres and conveys a versatile structure to cover vast digital reach for fervid artists.

Music submissions are sent to over 5,000 DJs, 40,000 nightclubs, and 2,500 radio stations in hundreds of countries when artists purchase DJ Pool and Playlisting. The service guarantees at least 500 spins with the possibility to accumulate over 2,000 spins. In-depth feedback from critical tastemakers and music industry professionals is gifted to artists using the service. Intercept's platform provides the ability to reveal the DJs your music is reaching and their geographical location through a comprehensive heat map. Participants are rewarded with global exposure by accessing all radio stations and nightclubs playing their music from major commercial markets, large metropolitan areas, and even suburban cities and small towns.

 

Intercept expects this newly created partnership with DJ Pool will increase Intercept's live streaming revenues and potentially start recognizing revenues as early as Q4 2022.

 

"We're excited to partner with Intercept Music and provide Digital DJ Pool promotion services more accessible for labels and artists," said Matt Kearney, Co-founder and CEO of Digital DJ Pool.

 

"Music industry participants, such as record labels, individual artists and video services continue to gravitate towards Intercept's innovative technology platform," commented Intercept's President Tod Turner.

 

"The digital marketing and music distribution that Intercept offers the marketplace is gaining great traction, as we move through the fourth quarter of 2022," quoted Sanwire's CEO, Ron Hughes, "Our exponential growth in total streaming is beginning to take shape. Digital DJ Pools fits very well in our overall organic growth strategy."

Sanwire Corporation's Wholly Owned Subsidiary Intercept Music Announces Partnership with Sapphire Records and Grammy Award/Multi-Billboard Chart Winner David Veslocki

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 18, 2022 / Intercept Music announced today a new partnership with Sapphire Records; the brainchild of multi-platinum artist and Grammy-nominated producer, David Veslocki. "Our unique new partnership model with Intercept Music will help artists around the world have the music industry at their fingertips," said David Veslocki.

Sapphire Records will build upon the Intercept Music platform, utilizing global distribution, marketing offerings such as playlisting, DJ pools, social media advertising, and professional services such as custom merchandise design. Intercept Music will also provide physical distribution to retailers such as Barnes and Noble and Walmart. With this partnership, Intercept Music offerings will expand to include beat licensing, feature contracting, music mastering services, future audio-visual sync opportunities, and more. The one-stop solutions company also provides attractive elements for artists such as real-time data analytics with 100% transparency.

"Intercept Music built the label platform we had only dreamed about, by putting our music expertise together with their platform and services, we think we can blow this up and support a multitude of artists," said Veslocki.

Veslocki is a guitarist, producer, songwriter and label executive, earning multiple number-one spots on the Billboard Chart in over 50 countries. He has been heard worldwide on countless major networks, radio stations and feature films. Veslocki has contributed to numerous Emmy and Oscar-nominated film and show credits, won first place at the International Songwriting Competition and released songs with RCA Records, Atlantic Records, Sony Records, Kontor Records, and 300 Records, along with more remarkable accomplishments.

"David's depth of understanding from both sides as a performing artist and label manager offers tremendous insight into how we can work together," said Tod Turner, President and CEO of Intercept Music. "I am excited to get as much of David's expertise built into the platform as humanly possible, our ability to help artists and labels can only get better."

Event Horizon is the first new label partnered with Skyfall Music out of Nashville and their founder Craig Wilson. "Craig has done an incredible job of building Skyfall into a formidable competitor in the Country music space," said Veslocki. "Event Horizon will offer a whole new format for indie artists in the country space, where all vetted marketing services are available, along with a staff to help you get the most out of your music." "This new venture will break Skyfall/Event Horizon out as its own structure outside of Sapphire, and this is really big for Craig and Skyfall," Veslocki adds.

Constellation is the second new label. It will be a premier, concierge-style label with hand-picked artists from Veslocki. "Our artists at Constellation will be selected based on where they are with their socials, streaming, and development as an artist. Through our partnership with Intercept, these artists will receive special attention, custom-designed marketing programs and access to other marketing services typically only available to major labels."

Sanwire Corporation's Wholly Owned Subsidiary and Start-up Music Tech Innovator, Intercept Music, Goes Global

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2022 / Intercept Music, Inc., a multi-faceted artist and label solutions subsidiary of the entertainment-technology company, Sanwire Corporation (OTC PINK:SNWR), is going global. This month, the innovative start-up launched global distribution, hired bilingual partners, and integrated their label-suite markup language into Spanish and Portuguese.

The announcement was made during Intercept's showcase at the Latin Billboard Awards in Miami last week. "With the partnerships we have in place throughout Latin America, we are well positioned to take advantage of the exceptional growth happening in the Latin markets," said Intercept Music President, Tod Turner. "We are going to be able to help thousands of talented Latin artists amplify their music careers."

To date, hundreds of artists and labels have joined the agency worldwide. By partnering with Intercept, music distributes to over 230 countries and over 80 service providers through their worldwide distribution partner, Ingrooves, owned by Universal Music Group. Members can also review detailed data reports, streaming statistics, and their Dashboard in their native language with access to full-time bilingual customer service and account representatives. Also, new visitors can view the Intercept website in Spanish and Portuguese.

According to Music Business Worldwide, Latin Music is on course to generate over $1 billion in the U.S in 2022 following a phenomenal 35% growth in 2021. Long-term growth is driven by emerging markets such as Brazil and Mexico, according to MIDiA. In 2022, the global streaming revenue is expected to be larger than the entire Recorded Music Market was worth in 2018.

As a complete marketing, distribution, and merchandise platform for independent labels and artists, Intercept Music and its passionate creators have worked aggressively to express inclusion to talent locally, regionally, and globally since the company's start in 2018. Cultivating diversity and worldwide growth, Intercept partnered with Grammy-award winning artists such as Anthony Moses Davis (known as Beenie Man), a Jamaican Dancehall deejay, this summer.

Intercept Music is an earlier riser making global reach and independence possible as a creator for creators. Intercept is a facilitator in the dynamic industry and plans to continue its growth, becoming a fortress for indie artists and labels.

"In the first six months we've added 15 new proprietary marketing services, three advisors, four new partnerships, and over 50 new software updates including royalty accounting, one of the most comprehensive in the industry, all in the name of helping indie artists and labels navigate their way to success."
