Here's a List of Every PledgeMusic Board Member

Who’s on the mysterious PledgeMusic board of directors?  These guys.

Earlier this week, the PledgeMusic board of directors with a terse statement on the PledgeMusic site.  The statement emerged as investigations and potentially criminal charges loom, depending on the severity of what occurred prior to PledgeMusic’s bankruptcy.

The statement offered no assurances that artists or funders would be paid or reimbursed.  Artists were encouraged to download all of their materials previously uploaded to the site.

Initially, top executives at the company were blamed for the sordid situation that featured frozen funds, outright lying to artists and their backers, and disastrous crowdfunding campaigns.  But separate sources to Digital Music News have also been pointing the finger at the company’s board for creating a company potentially guilty of financial fraud, embezzlement, and other malfeasance.

But who’s on this mysterious board?  On that note, one source pointed DMN to a recent filing with the UK Companies House, which lists all of the company’s directors — past and present.

All of this information is publicly available.
