With over a half million musicians as users – including big names like Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen – BandPage has become the platform of choice for musicians to create new revenue streams and drive higher fan engagement. The San Francisco-based company has been so successful that Sider was recently named to both Inc. Magazine’s and Billboard’s “30 Under 30: Music” lists as well as three times to Forbes’ “30 Under 30: Music.”

Eight years ago, J Sider was mopping floors at small concert venues. Today, the Goshen College alum is founder and CEO of BandPage, a popular online platform for musicians to build a presence and post content for fans.

“After years in the live music industry, I thought, ‘There’s got to be an easier way for musicians to promote themselves and make more money online’,” said Sider on his website. “We’ve built BandPage to manage a musician’s entire online presence with one update on one, central platform.” – By Ariel Ropp ’13 26
