BlackBerry has announced a mobile music deal with the indie music distributor Zimbalam. The two companies said that they are working together to offer unsigned musicians a way to bring their music content to the BlackBerry World storefront.
Customer support is tailored to the artist's local language and distribution packs are adapted geographically. Artists also have the opportunity to evolve and move their careers a step forward as currently over 20 artists a month are offered the opportunity to work with A&R and develop their careers.
"Zimbalam exists in order to allow unsigned artists to get their music on to digital music stores and to find their audience. We are excited to be working with BlackBerry as it will give artists access to a different fan base and help with the discovery of their music," said Denis Ladegaillerie, CEO of Zimbalam.
Musicians pay Zimbalam a distribution fee, but then get to keep 90% of the earnings from any music sales they make.
