A new plat­form named GigRealm launch­es today which aims to help match artists to venues and stream­line the process for artists to play live at grass­roots venues. Although the idea was cre­at­ed before the pan­dem­ic, Lon­don-based music com­pa­ny GigRealm will now be part of the solu­tion to help the belea­guered music indus­try get back on its feet again.

GigRealm was found­ed by cousins Tom Brady and Reuben Narey who believe in the com­mer­cial & cul­tur­al val­ue of grass­roots music and are pas­sion­ate about sup­port­ing this vital part of the music indus­try. Their new plat­form is free for artists to use and is a one-stop solu­tion, sim­pli­fy­ing the sys­tem. Artists, venues and pro­mot­ers will be able to nav­i­gate the plat­form and match with one anoth­er based on their indi­vid­ual needs. As an addi­tion­al ben­e­fit the plat­form auto­mat­i­cal­ly gen­er­ates a Gig­Con­tract™ for every show, there­fore pro­vid­ing a robust dig­i­tal solu­tion that safe­guards everyone.

The two have already agreed part­ner­ships and col­lab­o­ra­tions with sev­er­al music indus­try bod­ies and com­pa­nies includ­ing CD Baby, Kyck­er, The Ivors Acad­e­my, ICMP and BIMM.

Tom Brady says: “We spent a num­ber of years devel­op­ing the con­cept for GigRealm and were prepar­ing to launch the plat­form just before the pan­dem­ic struck. See­ing the hav­oc that COVID wrought on the live music indus­try over the last 18 months or so has sharp­ened our resolve to pro­vide a seam­less solu­tion for any venue – either a tra­di­tion­al music venue or one from the wider hos­pi­tal­i­ty sec­tor – to engage with great artists, effort­less­ly pro­mote live music and, of course, for artists to find shows and get fair­ly remu­ner­at­ed.“
