Laneway Music was founded in September 2015 with a passion for ensuring that iconic artists' body of work (including previously released material, rarities, unreleased tracks and new music) was completely available on all legitimate digital platforms worldwide for fans to enjoy.
Truth be told, Laneway was born from a somewhat selfish perspective - we were unable to access some of our favourite bands on digital platforms, and decided to do something about it. It's not rocket surgery. Or brain science.
The Laneway Music philosophy is simple. We believe that:
- Great music should be accessible for fans to access and enjoy on the various and evolving digital platforms.
- Great music should be preserved and not 'lost'.
- Artists should be compensated for their art in a transparent, respectful and fair way with their interests paramount always.
Every day we feel privileged to be able to bring these amazing artists, and their important music, to fans around the world. At Laneway Music - we're about the artists and the music.
