About us

The highest quality audio platform in the industry

SoundStack in a nutshell

Since 2010, SoundStack has stood for the highest quality audio delivery platform in the industry. It has grown to a community of over 12,000 global publishers who rely on our platform everyday to upload, track and deliver audio in ways never thought possible. Our quest is to simplify, demystify and deliver audio at scale, in whichever “verse” audio is listened to today and in the future.

At just age 15, SoundStack’s CEO Jon Stephenson formed EmpireStreaming, headquartered out of his parents’ basement in Hermitage, PA. Over the past 12 years, he has been able to build this business from a one man startup, to now a consistent award winner of the Inc 5000 fastest growing companies in America. In addition to EmpireStreaming, Jon was able to acquire Live365 under the newly created holding company, Media Creek in 2018.

In 2022, EmpireStreaming was rebranded to SoundStack, an enterprise audio-centric content delivery network, audio advertising solutions and analytics technology SaaS provider, powering some of the largest and most powerful brands in the audio space. In aggregate, SoundStack distributes content to tens of millions of end-users each day with a growing distributed team of 50+ full-time individuals around the world, while being headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA.
