Grant Noel (CEO, founder)
How does a computer and financial whiz go from the boardroom to the founder of the fastest growing worldwide indie music platform? It’s called “creative disruption”.
“We’re using today’s technology, interactive social platforms and new media (satellite radio) to elevate an artists’ exposure and fan engagement.” says Grant Noel, CEO and founder of World Music Stage. The company’s tagline, ‘Breaking the Sound Barrier’ refers to their mission to disrupt the flow of traditional marketing strategies in the music industry by essentially putting the artist in the driver’s seat of his/her career. The concept is catching on like fire.
Responsible for the company’s overall vision and strategy as well as day-to-day operations, Grant’s focus since the beginning has been to inspire fan and artist participation by developing a simple and thoughtful platform. As a result World Music Stage is attracting a global community of artists and fans who share more than the world’s music on the platform; everyone becomes a player in someone’s dream.
Prior to founding World Music Stage, Grant worked for major computer companies and financial institutions, but his passion has always been music, and his inspiration, the artists who create the magic. Grant refers to music as ‘a force to be reckoned with’ as it’s the only artform that stimulates both sides of the brain. A would-be musician for the past 15 years, he has met hundreds of talented artists, and if he has realized anything, it’s that music is meant to be shared and dreams of making it should be and are possible. “That’s why I created World Music Stage, a place dedicated to discovering and sharing new music and making dreams come true.”
