Welcome to Holding Pattern, a brand new platform to promote and foster the talent of undiscovered and independent creativity. We are a market place that offers digital sales and licensing revenue where all artists can host, share, decide what price to sell their work, and still retain total control of all their copyrights. Our sole purpose is to give power back to the artist, their fans, and allow people to explore and discover music they've never had the opportunity to listen to before. We're doing this by stacking our virtual shelves with the most diverse and comprehensive collection of undiscovered and independent music on the planet.
