This month, we celebrate our tenth anniversary as a business. It's a significant milestone for us to achieve and one that we're extremely proud to have reached. Over the past ten years, we've seen a tremendous growth in the value shown by businesses towards music, and we'd like to think we've played a small part in that growth.

We started out as passionate music fans and that passion remains as strong today, ten years on, as it did on day one. We're thankful that everyday we get to explore the ever evolving musical landscape, and share these discoveries with thousands of businesses.

"Music is the most powerful thing on this earth, and it's hard to be angry when you are listening to music." Jerry Reed


To celebrate, we've teamed up with the world's leading music discovery app, Shazam, to help some of our clients share their playlists with their customers. For the first time, music fans will be able to take home the playlists from their favourite venues helping wider audience discover brilliant music.

Open Ear have always believed that great music deserves to be shared and working with Shazam helps us to take music curation to the next level.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing stories from the past ten years and we'll be hosting a party to celebrate on the 22nd of November too (more details to follow).

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our subscribers and partners around the globe for working with us over the past ten years.

If you would like to hear more about our origins and how we work with venues you can listen back to Brian d’Souza on Monocle Entrepreneurs.
