CÜR Media, Inc. is developing a new streaming music experience (CÜR Music) that intersects free, ad-supported products like Pandora and on-demand products like Spotify for listening on web, iOS, and Android devices.
Headquartered in South Glastonbury, Connecticut, CÜR Media, Inc. is the parent company of CÜR Music, the social music streaming app for today’s listener. Scheduled to launch in 2016, CÜR is led by Jim Urie, (former President and CEO of Universal Music Group Distribution), Tom Brophy, a successful digital media entrepreneur, Bill Campbell (Managing Partner in Crossfade Partners; formerly Senior Vice President, Global Digital Business at Universal Music Group), and Sanjan Dhody (Managing Director and Client Advisor at Deutsche Bank Alex Brown, Inc.).
CÜR Music began testing in early 2012 as Raditaz, a DMCA compliant Internet radio product, and has developed iPhone and Android applications that in beta had over 150,000 monthly unique users. The Company plans to launch its enhanced product offering in early 2016 with a multi-million dollar marketing campaign.
The market for streaming music access is massive. The $6.85B US recorded music market is shifting from CDs and downloads to streaming music (access models). 275 million people over the age of 6 still listen to the radio and spend 15 hours per week listening, and more than 120 million people use some form of Internet radio in the US every month.
