MonoKrome Music, the new artist and label services business that launched earlier this year, has announced the appointment of a new non-exec director and the launch of a proprietary digital rights platform called The Hub.

The company describes The Hub as “a one-stop platform for the storing and management of both publishing and master rights, opening that key information up for artists, managers, publishers, labels and distributors alike”. The firm reckons that its platform is “powerful, cohesive and clear”, and therefore a “21st century approach to managing music data”.

Expanding on all that, MonoKrome founder Kristian Davis-Downs said: “Rich data is key to everyone’s success and having that stored in an accessible but secure location with the ability to update and polish where required will ensure that our clients are represented correctly and efficiently. The technology is second to none, by starting with a clean slate and using the knowledge gained over the last 20 years, I am confident we can eliminate a lot of the problems associated with different rights holders today”.

The new non-exec director is John Holborow, who previously had MD roles at the Beggars Group and Sony Music’s RCA, and who now consults for various entertainment businesses.

Confirming the board addition, MonoKrome’s Lee Morrison said: “We are extremely excited to have such a highly experienced executive join the MonoKrome team. John has been at the forefront of many changes within the industry and, drawing from that knowledge base, MonoKrome can continue to grow and build on its long term strategy”.
