Every Band's Hometown

ELBY is a locals-only radio streaming service with global implications. Your community creates some pretty awesome stuff, we're here to show that off while making sure the artist gets paid as much as possible.

Capture the Scene

Much of your community's best work can only be found live at our local venues. We help bands record broadcast-quality tracks to play on the air, then we give full rights to the recording over to the artist and pay them to play it on our station.

Distribute the Tunage

ELBY shows you what your town's music scene is all about. We're just as proud of this place as your are. When touring artists come to town, they're treated as a part of our community while they're here and we play them too.

Partner with Businesses

We also work with local businesses to replace your high-priced BMI & ASCAP licenses with our own locally crafted & curated content. ELBY offers different streams to choose from depending on the atmosphere businesses want to create for their customers
