"According to EMarketer, the global music business is expected to do $67.6 billion in sales this year, with more than $14 billion of that expected to be from digital music sales. Our acquisition of R&R Music gives us a keystone platform to launch our independent artist and music community. By combining a digital discovery and exposure platform with the distribution of internet radio and other broadcast opportunities, VoxPop Worldwide is setting the stage for creating a music revolution."

R&R Music and R&R World were founded by software entrepreneur David Ritchie and Eric Nicoli, the former Chairman and CEO of EMI Group plc and CEO of United Biscuits plc. On completion of the transaction, Mr. Ritchie will join VoxPop as CTO and a Member of the Board of Directors, and Mr. Nicoli will also join the Board of Directors and become Co-Chairman with Phil Quartararo, a VoxPop founder director.
