Sound Diplomacy


With decades of experience in the music industry, we are able to bridge the gap between music and the world of policy and urban planning. This is why we are trusted by organisations around the world to create and deliver strategies for economic and cultural growth.

Sound Diplomacy is the leader of the Music Cities movement, which sees culture built into the urban environment through policy. We help governments develop healthy music ecosystems to create vibrant, exciting communities.

Our company consults at length with the Mayor of London, and advise governments in Cuba (on behalf of the United Nations), Brisbane, Vancouver, San Francisco and Alabama; contributed to Katowice’s successful UNESCO City of Music bid; work to develop new music venues and policies for Lendlease, Legal & General Capital, U+I and other developers and have helped over 500 artists and companies break into new markets around the world
