Songkick CEO Ian Hogarth comments, “At its best, a great show is an incredible shared experience between artists and fans, and for us, it’s what music is all about. We want every fan and artist to have that experience, and that’s why we created Songkick. With Tourbox, we are introducing a powerful publishing tool to help musicians promote their tour dates wherever fans are listening to their music.”

He adds, “We’ve worked closely with innovative, U.S.-based booking group, The Windish Agency, during our beta phase. Using the uniquely developed plug-in we built for the Windish site, their agents immediately understood the huge opportunity this represents for their roster of touring artists. They provided useful input along the way to help shape this into a killer tool for musicians.”

Tom Windish, President of The Windish Agency, said, “Songkick was a clear choice as a first partner in the direct-to-fan space for us. Through Songkick’s extensive network of partners and their new tools, the lives of our artists are greatly simplified, and their shows get incredible promotion on the channels where people listen to music and discover concerts. We see this as just a start to our work with Songkick.”

Artists already using the full suite of tools in Tourbox include The Windish Agency artists M83, Art vs Science and CloudNothings, as well as MWard, Soundgarden, AttackAttack!, ofMontreal and and label websites including UniversalMusic and Domino.
