Free Web Service Offers Access to a Suite of Benefits Tailored to Needs of Emerging Artists—Including Affordable Health Care
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2009 -- Independent musicians no longer have to go it alone, thanks to Wanduta, a groundbreaking, members-only free Web resource for musicians, which launched today. At Wanduta, membership has its privileges—offering musicians a suite of benefits including affordable healthcare, a musician-centric discount platform (covering travel, gear and more) and opportunities to play live shows and gain further exposure for their music.
The Wanduta mission is to give working independent musicians everything they need for success by offering them the same opportunities and support available to other professions. By signing up for free membership, Wanduta members have access to:
- Affordable Health Insurance – Wanduta has partnered with a team of health insurance pros that cuts through the red tape to offer all members a unique, concierge-based affordable health care with rates starting as low as $55 per month. Wanduta Members can call the toll-free Wanduta Health Hotline and talk by phone with health insurance experts about their questions, needs and budget.
- Discounts – The Wanduta PerksCard gives access to discounts from many thousands of local and national vendors relevant to the needs of musicians, including Guitar Center, as well as restaurants, hotels, rental cars, drug stores, electronics, movie tickets and more.
- Community -- Upon joining Wanduta, Members are the exclusive benefactors of all the Company's outward endeavors including opportunities to play live and gain management input. Wanduta has already thrown benefit concerts to raise money for musicians in need and will continue to rally around them with future efforts/events. Additionally, Wanduta seeks to advance the careers of its Members and will be recruiting exclusively within the membership base to find artists for management services.
Created by a team of executives (Michael Morrison, Jason Gershwin and Peter Rossi) who bring experience and passion for the music business, Wanduta is dedicated to helping musicians who live for their music find a way to make a living through music. “Wanduta addresses musicians’ issues on the most fundamental level, assisting with the day-to-day realities of a working musician,” explains Morrison. “Before distribution, before marketing, before all of that, there is sustainability. That's where we come in.”
The goal of Wanduta is to create a thriving community of independent musicians. In addition to the suite of benefits, Members also receive promotion on Wanduta Radio, a free, streaming radio channel for music fans to discover emerging artists. On the near horizon, Wanduta plans to expand their platform to a comprehensive, one-stop resource for independent artists, providing affordable financial and managerial guidance. Wanduta takes its name from an elder of the Dakota Nation who was arrested in 1903 for violating an Indian Act prohibition against performing a Grass Dance ceremony; the founders like to say Wanduta was arrested because he refused to stop dancing.
Paving the way for a new community of independent musicians bound by their craft and united through their desire to give back, Wanduta also plans on raising funds for artists in need through charitable initiatives and benefit concerts, in association with the non-profit organization Sweet Relief.
