Music Glue is a direct-to-fan platform which allows musical artists to sell digital content, merchandise, and event tickets in multiple currencies and languages.[1][2][3] The company is headquartered in London, with offices in New York and Sydney.[4]

History

Music Glue was launched in 2007 by Mark Meharry, with the goal of allowing artists to sell their music directly to consumers.[3][5] "Controlled filesharing" was introduced with the band Marillion.[6]

In 2013, Music Glue launched its direct-to-fan platform at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, United Kingdom. By this time, Music Glue had worked with artists including Mumford and Sons, Gabrielle Aplin, Nina Nesbitt, Enter Shikari, Ben Howard, and Ghostpoet.[3]

In July 2014, Music Glue became the primary ticket vendor for a two-day festival in Lewes, Sussex.[7] In September 2014, UK promotion group MAMA & Company announced a partnership with Music Glue for all applications for The Great Escape 2015, whereby artists applying to play the Brighton based festival would need to create a Music Glue profile in order for their application to be accepted.[8]

Recognition

In October 2007, Music Glue was nominated for a 'Best Innovation' award at the BT Digital Music Awards.[9] Music Glue had been called one of the "Top 100 tech media companies" by The Guardian.[10]
