New Startup Helps Musicians Stay Afloat During COVID

  • Tuesday, December 1, 2020

With many musicians facing financial ruin due to COVID, a Chattanooga based musically gifted couple decided to launch a marketplace called Songlorious where musicians can make money by writing and performing customized songs based on consumer requests. 

The Songlorious founders and newlyweds are Ellen Hodges and Omayya Atout, who were inspired to start the company because of a song request from a friend.

Requests range from short 30 second jingles to three minute songs, with seven different musical genres to choose from.

The company launched in June and is quickly gaining traction. In just four months Songlorious has hired 80 musicians and counting, and seen orders climb steadily with over 5,000 orders. In November alone, the company has received 680 orders and put $46,000 in artists’ pockets.
