Additional expansion is planned with pending deals in the Netherlands and China expected by year-end.

"BETA Records is opening its online portal to singers, songwriters, instrumentalists, bands and fans everywhere, but with the additional advantage of local land-based operations, expanding global distribution channels and new revenue opportunities across BETA's multiple ecosystem platforms," states Honetschlaeger.

"By combining online's social interaction with the personalization of local facilities, BETA Records offers the best of both worlds to everyone who makes or enjoys music," van Handel states. "We love being an online record company, but there are many advantages to having terrestrial operations, including recording studios, mobile recording facilities, A&R representatives, video and broadcast professionals, and distribution channels," van Handel added.

"Unsigned artists joining BETA Records receive their own personal Web presence, complete with hosting of songs, photos, biographical and contact information, and a wide variety of additional features, including opportunities for networking, studio appearances, live shows, airplay on BETA Radio (, and presentation to decision-makers throughout the fields of music, motion pictures, television, radio and live venues," says Honetschlaeger.

"Every advancement in technology, recording, distribution and promotion at BETA Records brings independent artists closer to enjoying all the advantages formerly reserved for artists on one of the four major record labels," notes Chris Harper, BETA's Chief Experience Officer.
