Music Gateway (“MG”) is a London-based independent A&R company that is similar to Taxi but with distinct differences. The principal difference is that the songwriter may upload her entire catalog to the MG site with each uploaded song then being curated by MG. For the curated songs MG accepts, MG itself may represent one or more of the songs to the relevant licensing opportunities it receives, and the songwriter, as well, may submit to the same opportunity any uploaded songs she wishes (the possible duplication is understood by all).

Recently, SSM uploaded 11 Smooth Jazz songs to MG (see Smooth Jazz I on this site); all songs were curated and accepted by MG. As time permits, SSM will upload to MG all of the hundreds of songs on this site for curation and then for MG’s representation, at its discretion, of the accepted songs to licensing opportunities (and for SSM to pitch to such licensing opportunities independently).
