Tinderbox Music is a Minneapolis based boutique promotions firm that has been representing bands for over a decade. The six 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. In 2010 Tinderbox charted 26 bands in the highly coveted CMJ Top 200, with 16 of these bands being self-released.

Additionally, Tinderbox Music has placed nearly five hundred 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, My Life as Liz, and many others.

Services vary and fees can be based on availability. So why does this service cost money? We’re like a lot of other things in the music industry. If you go into a studio, you’re going to pay for them to record your disc and for their experience. Getting discs made? You’re going to have to pay for them to be made. And having someone promote your disc to radio, press, licensing, etc… that actually has experience and will do a good job is going to be the same case.
