It’s been a Godsend, truly, I feel employed now! A seemingly non-stop source of work is what I always wanted to find.
In total this produced a further 3 albums and two EPs of recorded music so that really shows what you can get out of it
We produced singles and 5 albums with Sony Music & Universal Records. Followed by golden and platinum records and a Billboard Chart entry.
I’m a very worldly person so the fact you can find someone across the world that shares the same drive, creativity and commitment is great!
We immediately message each other if something comes up that fits our style and capabilities.
Not all collabs will end up with a finished project, but you’ll learn something new from every experience.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet collaborators from all over the world. Being UK & Brooklyn based, this never would've happened otherwise!
I love that my tracks and metadata can be stored in one place. It makes pitching to briefs and sending my music so simple!
The beauty was that Patrik and I were able to co-write from two different countries and still get an amazing result.
A key factor for me is their communication; a strong suit of Music Gateway is that they constantly update their members with new briefs.
My project lead to me working with 2 great producers for my 1st EP. Both were in separate locations, but didn't effect the recordings.
There’s always someone who can help my songs reach a higher level, and it is the best and easiest way to find and to communicate with them.
You don’t need to have a wealth of industry contacts to have a successful career. Project owners look at the quality of your pitch & music.
If I'm stuck on a lyric or vocal for a track, being able to bounce off people is invaluable. It makes collaborating so much more open.
Managing multiple projects will help, as some will be successful and some not. It's important to try and work with others & push yourself.
I've made a wonderful connection in Chicago & already co-written & performed all vocals as well as co-producing 5 songs in different genres.

I have gained five times as many new clients from Music Gateway than I have from any other method, highly recommended.
I've had two remixes released on Spotify through Music Gateway collaborations. I've also collaborated with singers overseas and in Scotland.
I'm from Argentina and I found collaborators from Nigeria, India and UK. Great people and great collaborators!
A project helped me find a talented female singer. She recorded backup vocals for several tracks which will be on my new albums.
I've met some amazing artists here and many of them are serious people who are looking to move their career forward in music.
I have been seeking development to help my career and by joining Music Gateway it has literally, changed my life.
