Tinderbox Music is based in Minneapolis, MN and has been representing bands for over a decade. The eight members of Tinderbox’s staff collectively have over 70 years of music industry experience across almost every area of the music industry. Tinderbox pursues press, tour support, music licensing and distribution for a limited roster of acts each year. Fundamentally though, Tinderbox is hired as a promoter on behalf of bands to represent them to both college and community radio (The CMJ Format) on a national basis. Since opening for business in 2000, Tinderbox has charted 300+ bands in the highly coveted CMJ Top 200, with a majority of these bands being self-released.

Additionally, Tinderbox Music has placed nearly 1,000 songs in the past seven years to these shows: Grey’s Anatomy, Chuck, The O.C., Men in Trees, Six Feet Under, The L Word, The Real World, The Hills, Bad Girls Club, Buckwild, and many, many others. Tinderbox also has several unique network relationships that they do whole album content music clearance for. The Discovery Network and NASCAR Productions are two current examples. Most of Tinderbox’s licensing opportunities are non-exclusive and quite often Tinderbox does not re-title the works.

In 2011, Tinderbox started a dedicated Hip Hop department. Last year at radio, it achieved 14 Top TEN CMJ chartings! Tinderbox’s Hip Hop department has already charted 8 acts since the beginning of 2013. One Tinderbox artist Jahshua Smith reached #1 for two weeks in a row! Other notable artists include; The Herbaliser, The Extremities, Ghettosocks, Ecid, and Kristoff Krane.

It’s time for you to take your music to the next level and Light A Fire!
