Here at Music Gateway, we don’t normally talk about ourselves and our success, we tend to focus more on what our community and artist rosters are up to! However, we just wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you! 

We’ve had a record-breaking year this year (despite the craziness of the pandemic) and have put our all into improving our site, services and more to continue to empower creatives like you. We’re so grateful for your continued support through all of this!

A lot has happened over 2020 but to name a few highlights, we’ve expanded as a team, welcoming more dedicated team members but have still kept that personal element and close relationship with you. We’ve enjoyed doing all the music supervision for an entire film for the first time (and celebrating it being award-winning!). We’ve launched free tools, new services and done all we can to keep offering independent artists, composers, producers, record labels and more opportunities to boost their career success and survive 2020.

Our global music industry marketplace has always been a space for collaboration, but this year it’s meant so much to us to see it allow people to collaborate who would otherwise be unable to continue collaborating, at least in person, for nearly a whole year!

“It’s been a tough year for all of us, especially freelance creatives from around the world who have had to learn how to survive and adapt during the pandemic. As a company of passionate people, I’m so proud to see how we have grown and matured, continuing our support across the music industry. So looking ahead to 2021, with extreme excitement, I am looking forward to a benchmark year in Music Gateway’s development, but more importantly enabling us to deliver more success to the benefit of you, our members. Thank you for your continued, unwavering support.”

Jon Skinner, CEO

We couldn’t do any of this without you, so, on behalf of all of us here at Music Gateway, thanks again for all your support, a very Happy New Year and bring on 2021! We hope it’ll bring you great happiness and success!
