About Us

Tangy Market is the online marketplace where anyone can invest in music royalties.


The buying, selling and trading works just like in any other market. However, Tangy Market goes beyond numbers and rates. In addition to your chances of winning or losing, your investment in a song works as an advance payment to the songwriter.


Most likely, your money will render new songs, new lyrics and new reasons for people around the world to dance, to cry, to sing along, to fall into the arms of beautiful strangers.


Yes, we’re speaking to YOU, yearning teenage fans throughout the world. And to YOU no less—all of you uptight, white shirt institutional investors.


Let’s make the financial markets sing and dance. Let’s add some yeah, yeah, yeah to the world economy!
