Abbey Road prize for Music Gateway launch

New online global music industry platform launches with seven competitions, including a chance to win a day of recording at Abbey Road studios.

Music Gateway is a new online platform aiming to help aspiring or established artists and bands, musicians, producers, publishers, record labels, songwriters or even TV and film studios to collaborate and seek out new professional partnerships. As part of its launch, Music Gateway is running seven concurrent competitions for musicians and remixers, offering prizes which include Abbey Road Studio time with 7 Digital, A&R introductions to Rhino, Warner Music and Notting Hill Publishing, appearances at Liverpool Sound City and management representation. Founder and CEO Jon Skinner commented: “The music industry is a global community and I felt the need to cut out the hurdles that musicians and creative individuals face on a daily basis when trying to connect and do business with each other. Music Gateway is designed to be tailor-made, offering time efficient and accurate networking opportunities – in a straight- forward way, driving projects and transactions to a positive conclusion.” Current sponsors of the new initiative include Steinberg, sister publication Music Week and Prism Sound among many others. “This is an innovative business platform created by people who clearly know what it is to be both a music company and an artist in the 21st century,” said Music Week editor Tim Ingham. “Initial impressions suggest that it boasts cutting edge technology bent to musicians needs, removing legwork and allowing talent to thrive.”
