Fan funding website PledgeMusic has announced a partnership with Sonicbids, the online platform for bands looking for gig and festival opportunities. Pledge’s fan funding facilities and their email-for-a-track tool will be added to the Sonicbids dashboard.

Pledge founder Benji Rogers told CMU: “We are really excited to partner with Sonicbids to be able to offer a full 360 degree solution for artists that doesn’t involve any of their rights being given away. Sonicbids and PledgeMusic share a dedication to helping artists succeed and this partnership makes perfect sense for both companies. Together, we are able to provide a huge benefit to artists – whether they’re working with one of us already or just signing up”.

Sonicbids founder Panos Panay added: “The PledgeMusic widget will add even more value for our members by helping bands solidify their relationships with fans. Artists will now have the ability to raise funding for demos, singles, EPs, albums, tours, PR and marketing and much more within their Sonicbids account. It’s important for us to partner with companies that are as passionate about empowering musicians to build sustainable music careers as we are and our partnership with PledgeMusic certainly symbolises that”.
