Melody Management is helping music artists to get seen, get heard and get paid. Sound like a pitch from a giant record label? Not so fast. The Columbus-based company is part of a drastically changing landscape for the music industry — and it hopes to be at the forefront of that movement when the company officially launches Feb. 1. Melody is filling a niche with the widespread mobility of technology and music. The company distributes, markets and offers copyright protection in the way a traditional record label would — but it offers those services online in a way it claims is cheaper and more profitable for the artist. There are 28 artists currently working with Melody, but Johnson says the company's success is limitless.
