Multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Bryan Adams has joined Songbox, a music-sharing tech startup, as a Co-founder.
Using Songbox, creators can track when a ﬁle has been delivered, whether it’s been listened to and how long songs have been played. Additionally, the platform allows for creators to upload and share music video content. After enjoying the platform’s secure music-sharing capabilities, Adams decided to join in.
He says, “Songbox allows me to share new music that I’m working on in a way that I couldn’t before. I don’t need to send out MP3 ﬁles or physical products, so it keeps my ideas and early versions safe and secure until I’m ready to oﬃcially release the songs.”
Songbox was founded in Scotland by Michael Coll, a former musician, songwriter and industry insider. Seasoned industry veteran Ciaran O’Toole is also a Co-founder. The platform now has 50,000 tracks uploaded with over three million streams. They are already serving globally-renowned artists, independent creators and record labels, and are working to bring their focus to Music City.
“I had the opportunity to visit Nashville, and I instantly fell in love with the city,” shares Coll. “Nashville is music and it’s the perfect place for us to bring Songbox, which is where 80% of our customers currently are.”
Adams was one of the first famous names to sign up on the platform, and instantly began sharing ideas with Coll and O’Toole. “Almost immediately after signing up, Bryan was contributing feature ideas and design suggestions. His insight and experience for this has been invaluable,” says Coll.
“More recently, we have added the ability for creators to not only share their audio, but also house and share music videos on the platform,” sums Coll. “Creators can house all of their assets under one roof—photos, cover artwork, lyrics, music videos and tracks, and use the platform to collaborate with other creators or pitch media, publishers, industry executives, radio programmers and more. There are so many possibilities.”
