Founded in 2008 by brothers Matteo and Daniele Luppi, SoundMachine brings commercial background music to the fore with a subscription-based service that gives business owners everything they need to create a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience in their stores, restaurants, hotels, spas, or other locations. Clients can choose from three levels of service, with all subscribers receiving full Public Performance licensing in the U.S. and Canada, access to SoundMachine’s collection of professionally curated playlists, and the ability to mix playlists to create the perfect audio backdrop, insert promotional messages, schedule different types of music for different times of day, and control music in multiple chain locations from a central account. Subscribers to the Enterprise plan can also request a custom playlist created specifically for their needs, and those who sign up for Business Premium powered by Napster receive access to an expanded catalog of millions of songs and hundreds of curated stations, along with the ability to create their own custom stations starting from a single artist or song, building a consistent mood. SoundMachine now serves more than 10,000 locations across several countries, with customers including major fashion luxury brands such as Loewe (LVMH Group) and La Perla; hotel, restaurant, and coffee shop chains; and thousands of medium to small businesses.
