About us

Shaping the Future of the Music Industry

TuneRelease is enabling musicians to independently manage their bookings and promotion, helping artists make a living from performing and build their brand.

OUR PURPOSE

Helping Musicians Stay Independent

We are on a mission to build a suite of tools that work in harmony to empower musicians at every stage of their journey, whether you are performing from your bedroom or the main stage. Our vision is to create a world where there is equal access to opportunity, transparency and fair working conditions.

OUR Difference

Leveraging Technology

Utilising the latest technologies we can automate repetitive tasks, make recommendations based on large data sets and create transparency in the ecosystem with real-time information.

Our history

Founded by musicians, for musicians.

Luke Rynne Cullen founded the company in 2019 to streamline bookings and payments for the live music industry after his experience working as a freelance violinist and managing Trinity Orchestra. The company has since expanded into promotional tools with the aim of making music PR more accessible & affordable.
