My Journey with yoursoundmate: Empowering Independent Artists and Revolutionizing the Music Industry
I'm Lena-Luisa, a 26-year-old singer and songwriter originally from Austria, currently based in Greece. I have been an EDM vocalist for many years and my personal experiences with selling toplines as a vocalist left me feeling disappointed with existing marketplaces: late or no payouts, a lack of artist support and unreliable platforms. These challenges inspired me to create something better. And so, the idea of yoursoundmate was born. This blog post takes you through my personal journey of how yoursoundmate came to life, our mission to support independent artists, and our vision to change the music industry for the better.
From Vocalist to Entrepreneur:
As an independent artist, I started my musical journey as a vocalist, working on collaborations and looking for opportunities on existing platforms. I took every opportunity I got to get myself out there and noticed that independent artist face a lot of obstacles while trying to make a name for themselves in the industry. Financing promotion, music videos, low royalty splits, etc., I thought it would be a great idea to sell some of my toplines and be available for hire for custom projects. While doing that for over a year, I noticed a lot of issues and lack of support for artists who are trying to earn money doing what they love - making music. I realized that something needed to change. And so, the idea for yoursoundmate began to grow in my mind.
The Birth of yoursoundmate:
Motivated by my own experiences and with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by independent artists, I started to create a platform that would truly address their needs. Yoursoundmate became my answer - a marketplace built on the foundation of reliability, support, and putting artists first.

At yoursoundmate, inclusivity lies at the heart of what we do. I strongly believe that artists of all budgets should have access to exceptional vocals and sample packs without compromising on talent. It is our goal to curate the perfect vocal and sample pack offer for every budget, ensuring that artists can find the resources they need to bring their creative visions to life.
Building a Supportive Community:
Yoursoundmate goes beyond being just a marketplace; it is a community of artists supporting artists. I wanted to create a space where artists could come together, connect, collaborate, and lift each other up. By encouraging networking, sharing insights, and offering a platform for collaboration, yoursoundmate aims to build a strong community that empowers independent artists.
At yoursoundmate, we believe that independent artists should have the opportunity to become financially independent with their talent. Fair compensation, timely payouts, and transparent transactions are not just buzzwords for us - they are the foundation of our platform – because we want to make a difference. Our mission is to give artists the tools they need to gain an audience, monetize their craft, and build sustainable careers.
A Shift in the Music Industry:
Yoursoundmate represents my vision to challenge the status quo of the music industry and shift the focus back to independent artists. Through our reliable platform, supportive community, and commitment to fair compensation, we aim to revolutionize the industry. I envision a future where artists have the freedom to pursue their passion while gaining the recognition and financial stability they deserve.
My personal journey with yoursoundmate is based on a desire to create a better space for independent musicians. It is my belief that artists should have access to reliable opportunities, a supportive community, and the chance to achieve financial independence.
