What is Sellaband?

Sellaband is a web-page that let's unsigned artists find funding for their next album straight from their fans. Fans pre-buy the album for $10 through Sellaband.com. Once an artist have sold 5000 CD's, and thus collected $50,000 they get access to the money and can start recording. Fans, or Believers as they are called on Sellaband, also get rewarded parts of the sales revenue as the CD hits the stores.

What is Stataband?

Stataband is a 3rd party web-page created by Sellaband user Daniel Forchheimer created to help believers and artists get more out of Sellaband. This is done by collecting and recording various data from Sellaband.com. Notably the current main function of Stataband is the possibility to get graphs showing how many parts an artist has sold over time. Information on an artist is collected from Sellaband only when someone requests it. Therefor the exact time of sold parts is always slightly off. The more people that are interested in an artist the more updated and correct will the history be.
