Brian Camelio

Musician, Producer, Inventor, Entrepreneur, and Educator

Brian is an accomplished musician, producer, entrepreneur, inventor, and educator. Most notably he is credited as being a pioneer of modern “crowdfunding”. In 2001, he created ArtistShare, a website and software application for creative artists to fund projects directly through their fan bases which later became the blueprint for many of today’s crowdfunding websites such as KickStarter, IndieGoGo and PledgeMusic. In 2004, the first ArtistShare project won a Grammy award and became the first album in history to win a Grammy that was not available in retail stores. Since then ArtistShare fan-funded project releases have received a total of 10 Grammy awards and 29 Grammy nominations. – www.briancamelio.com
