​What is Global Rockstar?

Global Rockstar is a Royalty-based crowdfunding platform, a music label and a music publishing company created to support Artists and up-and-coming talent.

​Global Rockstar was founded by Christof Straub, an Austrian songwriter and producer who started his career in 1992 with his band „Papermoon“. Most of his productions reached gold and platinum status. Over the years Christof produced many successful acts, like ZOË, who represented Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest Stockholm 2016.

​Global Rockstar now offers Artists the possibility to present Projects on the platform globalrockstar.com to finance and/or market their new track with the support of their Fans. Fans invest and purchase the right to receive future Royalties from that track.

When a Project is successfully funded on the platform, the Global Rockstar Label causes the Master recording of the Song to be produced, distributed and/or marketed worldwide. A User that made a Pledge for a successfully funded Project is then entitled to receive Royalty payments from the revenues generated by the commercial exploitation of the Master and/or the Song, for a duration of up to 70 years.

Global Rockstar offers „all-or-nothing“-projects and „keep-it-all“-projects: „All-or-nothing“- projects are successfully funded when the funding goal is reached. „Keep-it-all“-projects are successfully funded when they end, no matter if the maximum funding goal has been reached.


​Why invest?

​Some very good reasons why you should have a closer look at the projects on this platform:

1. Be a part of the next track of your favorite Artist

For the first time, you can „own“ shares of a new track from an Artist you like. When the Project is funded, you’ll receive your contract and a Royalty certificate that certainly looks nice on the wall of your living room. You can preview the contract on all Project pages.

2. Money

Imagine you invested, at an early stage, in Ed Sheeran’s „Shape of you“, by having purchased the right to receive 5% of its Royalties from all streaming services.

​With 5%, you would have made approx. 1.000.000 € until today, only from streaming!

It’s a fact: The music business has finally found, after 25 years of recession, a solid and sustainable business model again. The worldwide revenues from streaming services have increased by 57% to 5.4 billion US $ between 2015 and 2016! And the trend continues. Be part of it!

​3. Sustainable revenues

The revenues from streaming never stop, since the users of Spotify, Deezer etc... will continue to stream their favorite Songs for the next 20 years or more. This generates continuous revenues for all beneficial owners. You can be one of these lucky people: invest in the right Artists and Songs!

​4. The power of the crowd

In the Global Rockstar model, up to 80 different investors can be invested in one production. All these people are interested in a commercial success of that production. We’ll provide them with all the information that they need, so that they can help make „their Song“ a success: For instance, by sharing it on social media, pitching it to playlist curators and many other meaningful measures that help to make a production popular! 

​5. Support Artists

Last but not least, maybe the most important reason why you should invest: Artists are people who dedicate their live to making beautiful things. On their journey, they don’t care about financial security, and go all-in for their music. Many extremly talented Artists struggle with financial issues, because for whatever reason, their time in the spotlight has not come yet.


Check out the Artists on this page, and if you believe in what you hear, help them to take the next step. You’re doing something good, and you might be rewarded soon with revenues!


​How do I invest?

It’s easy: Just check out the Project pages of the Artists that you find on this website. 

1.Check out the Songs and the Project details

On the Artist’s Project pages, you’ll find promising Artists who created Projects to fund their next Single. Others have already produced their new track and wish to get a funding to promote and market it. They’ll tell you more about their plan in a video displayed on their Project page. This video always includes a rough version of the Song that they wish to produce. In case that the Artists have already finished their production and are looking for a funding for promo and marketing, you’ll hear the finished track in their video.

The Project pages display if these Projects are live, funded or ended. If a Project is live, the funding goal has not been reached yet, and you can make a Pledge for that Project.

You’ll find a detailed description of the Project, the funding goal, the allocation of the funding, the team that is designated to work for the production, the Artist’s biography and some financial stats of the Artist’s previous releases (if available). You’ll also see the type of Royalties (Royalties from Master Rights exploitation or Royalties from Publishing Rights exploitation) you would receive in the future, and for how long you would receive them. You’ll see on the project pages if you invest in a „all-or-nothing“-project or in a „keep-it-all“-project.


​2.Make a Pledge

On the Artist’s Project pages, you’ll see what the Artists offer to Investors. These offers vary depending on the Project. In some Projects, you may be able to purchase 1% of Royalties for 60 €, in others 1% may cost 300 €.

If you believe in the Artist that you see, and in the Song that you hear, you choose the amount of shares of future Royalties that you wish to purchase. After you made your choice, you click on the „PLEDGE“-Button. You can make a Pledge for only 1% of shares, or for more, up to all available shares.

Then, you will be asked to enter additional information, so that we can conclude a contract, when the Project gets successfully funded. Then you choose the payment method for your Pledge. We support CB/VISA/Mastercard, Maestro and Sofort. 

When you enter your payment data and the payment is successful, you made a successful Pledge!


​"All-or-nothing"-projects:

​​You will only be charged if the Project is successfully funded. If the Project is not successfully funded, the full amount of your Pledge is refunded.


​"Keep-it-all"-projects:

You will be charged and become a shareholder of the track whether the maximum funding goal is reached or not.


​3.Check out if the Project gets funded

Please read the texts on the project pages to know if you invest in a „all-or-nothing“-project or a „keep-it-all“-project.


​"All-or-nothing"-projects: 

All Projects have a certain Project duration (in average 3 weeks - 1 month) in which the
funding goal must be achieved with Pledges from Investors.

We will notify you as soon as the Project has reached its funding goal.

When the Project has reached its funding goal, the Royalty Agreement enters into force. We will send you the Royalty certificate and the Royalty Agreement right after.

You are then entitled to receive Royalties from the commercial exploitation of the Master and/or from the commercial exploitation of the Publishing rights to the Song.


​"Keep-it-all"-projects:

When you make a pledge, the Royalty Agreement enters into force. We will send you the Royalty certificate, the Royalty Agreement and the invoice as soon as the maximum funding goal is reached or when the project ends.


You are then entitled to receive Royalties from the commercial exploitation of the Master and/or from the commercial exploitation of the Publishing rights to the Song.

​What is my investment used for?

You will find the information concerning the assignment of the funding on every Project page. 

They might vary depending on the settings of a Project. Basically, the possible allocations are as follows:


​1. Budget to enable a music production

This budget includes all costs that are necessary for a high-quality music production:

  • ​Producer fee
  • Studio costs
  • Costs for musicians
  • Costs for recording engineer

  • Mix
  • Mastering

​Am I taking a risk if I invest?

In addition to offering a great opportunity, an investment in a music production and/or its marketing also entails risks. Nobody can know for sure if a Song becomes a Hit and you might not recoup your investment within the desired time frame, or in the worst case, at all.

So check out the Artists and the Projects in detail before taking your decision but never forget that, in any case, you’ll help them to take a step further in their career!
