In 2017 Stefano Ricci is contacted by a large music distribution company, Jamvana, based in Florida to collaborate with BBS Awards and officially open the site and expand the event to all labels, artists of the Breaks sector.
Jamvana was formed by producers, DJs, and label owners like yourself. The name ‘Jamvana’ comes from a mashup of founder Robert E. Leigh’s two favorite bands: Pearl Jam & Nirvana. The company first started as an online record store for indies from 2007-2010, then became a mobile app for convenient streaming on the go shortly after. In 2013, Jamvana changed its focus to service indie content creators, specializing in the ‘back-end’ of music distribution. Currently, Jamvana is the complete package containing 60+ direct agreements, a mobile app, and free tools to help our clients stay organized and on top. We pride ourselves on having the best quality controlled catalog and the most outstanding customer service in the music industry.
