In the creative industries, productivity is everything and everywhere, working at 500 miles per hour, so being effective whilst being creative can be an absolute nightmare.
Everyone’s looking for more creative time, everyone’s looking for more exposure for their work and everyone’s on the move whilst they’re trying to do it. It’s that classic problem of time, money and resource, we all wish we had more.
Who is Music Gateway and how can we help you?
Music Gateway is designed by creative professionals for creative professionals. We provide an area for you to manage your existing music and manage your creative projects in one place. The project side, is a pool of talent where like-minded creatives, such as artists, songwriters, labels, publishers and more can not only manage their projects but can collaborate, connect, pitch and find or license work, all in one place. We also act as an agent for members who are looking for sync representation.
The brainchild of CEO Jon Skinner, Music Gateway was first created back in 2009. We were the world’s first dedicated project management tool for music industry projects. Now, several years on, Music Gateway provides a dedicated workspace for you to create and manage projefhelcts, connect with others and pitch for projects on a global playing field and is the only all-in-one solution for creatives - all with the sole purpose of making your life easier, meaning you can concentrate on letting those creative juices flow!

In order to achieve the perfect on-the-go platform, we need to come together as a Music Industry and that’s why we’ve chosen Kickstarter. They ‘help to bring creative projects to life’ and we ‘help to empower creatives everywhere’, so here we are. For us, the key is being able to give back and reward people who are supporting and joining us along our journey and talk to other creatives that get what we are trying to achieve. We have worked around the clock to pull together some amazing opportunities and we hope you share our vision.
