No one becomes a musician for the love of management.
Faniak is the first solution to combine Google Drive with smart folders that cut artists’ admin time by 60%.
Organize everything in smart folders that magically add metadata to your albums, songs, gigs, tours, and more.
Every time you add a new artist, album or song to your drive, Faniak creates a Smart Folder and searches the internet for information about it - your metadata.
From then on you can use your Smart Folder like a normal one, dragging and dropping files like you're used to, but with information properly stored and catalogued.
Connect to any booking distribution, publishing, promotion or sales service, instantly.
Faniak uses a browser extension that automatically feeds metadata into any form, the services you use are completely up to you.
You'll be able to carry on using all your current services and Faniak won't store any of your passwords or login information.
Create your professional CV, websites, press kits or other public pages, automatically using Smart Links.
- Coming Soon.
Your Smart Folders are the master recording for your career. With Smart Links you'll also be able to share them publicly with your fans, booking agents and the media.
Collaborate with your band, label, manager or anyone working on your career, anytime, anywhere.
Being musicians ourselves, we know how much working together is done on the go.
Your songs, promo material and documents are always available, whether you’re at the studio and want to credit your friend that played that cool guitar riff or you're in the tour bus showing your bandmates your latest gem.
A blue folder called "My Music Drive" is created in your Google Drive. Your Faniak workspace is now available from your Google Drive.
Search your band's name and we'll automatically organize your workspace into albums and songs with metadata.
Take your career to the next level with professional tools, previously only available to labels and established music businesses.
“Faniak are working to help us make sense of our data streams and could be instrumental in supporting managers and freeing up some of their time, so it can be spent on revenue generating activities, and supporting the artists they work so diligently for.”

Smart Folders have everything you like about your regular ones, like:
but with super-powers designed specifically for music artists, professionals and businesses:
The audio for your songs is just the tip of the iceberg. With it, comes a lot of metadata that is needed for you to be accurately identified. Who wrote this song? Who played it? Who produced it?
Metadata is the answer to all these questions and is used by Spotify, collective rights societies and almost everyone in the music industry for payments and discoverability.
Think metadata next time you ask Alexa who's playing, or receive a pay check from your copyrights.
Don't forget to have all your work properly credited! We're here to help.
The Smart Folders that are available to all tiers are:
You will also be able to add other Smart Folders to your subscription with a one time payment. The Promo Smart Folder is the first add-on but we hope to extend our offer soon.
Sure, no problem. To store random data that is not specific to the music industry just create folders the same way you do on your desktop. For everything that is music related, be Smart about it.
Your data is yours and yours alone, Faniak will only store your metadata. Your data will be stored in your Google Drive and you can access it directly from your Google Drive account at all times.
You decide who you want to share your data and metadata with when you allow access to your folders. It´s entirely up to you. That said, if you use Faniak as your workspace and let everyone contribute with their data and expertise, you'll make the most of it.
The services you use are completely up to you and Faniak works for both services that you are already registered with or new services you want to start using. Our job is to save you time so you can get back to your music.
If the service you usually use is not listed when you click "send to" we won't be able to fill in the blanks for that service's forms... yet. Just send us an email to let us know and try to get that service included ASAP.
