From passion to platform - the founder’s story

Music Gateway is the brainchild of our CEO & Founder, Jon Skinner. His eureka moment came to him mid-bath (seriously) whilst thinking back on his career in music and the struggles he had. The struggles getting the funding for the cost of new music, getting the right people into the studio, getting his music heard by the right people and the other pain points that generally come from the music industry.

At this point, Jon had come out of the music industry and was running a successful tech company within the nightclub photography world. It was this experience combined with his music career past that spurred him to create the ultimate platform for creatives. And so from humble beginnings started a company with a humble goal; empower creatives.

Jon loves supporting artists, songwriters, producers, because understanding their struggles is part of his make up: Jon’s experience spans 27 years across the industry starting as a House DJ and progressing into production and writing before owning several labels and a publishing company.

This is a message and a mantra that is continued through the rest of the team working on our mission of empowering creatives and is something that everything we do and everyone who represents us takes absolute pride in.

Our company values

We’ve slowly learnt that as we look to change the industry for the better it’s less about experience and more about attitude. Our team came up with 5 company values that we want to emulate as a team to achieve our common goal.

Embrace the Deep End

During our journey, we have always punched above our weight to change the music industry for the better and we encourage you to maximise your potential by doing the same. Embrace it, learn from it, advance before of it and most of all, enjoy it.

  • See the bigger picture
  • Have competitive drive
  • Apply new knowledge quickly
  • Believe success relies on them

Collaboration is Key

There isn’t a single track in the charts that was written by just one solo songwriter or producer because working on your own doesn’t create a perfect product. Collaboration leads to success so make sure to bring this into your working structure instead of going it alone.

  • Give and expect trust
  • Listen to understand
  • Seek to answer the big questions
  • Build relationships; breakdown walls

Overcome Barriers

We don’t stop or work around barriers but overcome them. For every problem there is always a solution and just as we’re providing solutions to streamline workflow and expand opportunities in the music industry, we want to practice what we preach.

  • Understand what problem means
  • Don’t always need to be right
  • Don’t create problems for others
  • Look for opportunity in problems

Open Door Policy

You spend 25% of your week driving Music Gateway forward. It’s important you enjoy it, so don’t be afraid to do what you need to do to get to the top of your game.

  • Are willing to accept
  • Don’t judge others
  • Respect people’s differences
  • Live in the present
