Talenthouse has acquired Creative Commission, a leading platform for hiring freelance creatives in the music industry.
Creative Commission was founded in 2014 and has worked with leading artists like Arctic Monkeys, Doja Cat, Coldplay, and The Rolling Stones. The acquisition will see Creative Commission add its loyal user base to Talenthouse’s creative community of over 14 million members. The Creative Commission and senior leadership team will be fully incorporated into the Talenthouse business.
“We are super excited about the acquisition of Creative Commission. It will strengthen Talenthouse’s relationships with the entertainment and music industries,” says Clare McKeeve, CEO of Talenthouse. “The acquisition is an important step in our vertical expansion strategy, always with the aim of providing more work and opportunities for our community of creatives. We look forward to growing the existing Creative Commission platform and welcoming the Creative Commission into Talenthouse.”
Nick Clark, Co-Founder & Director at Creator Commission, says, “We’re excited to be joining Talenthouse to further expand our global reach and physical presence in the music industry. As the go-to connectors for record labels and artist managers since 2013, this deal will greatly increase the volume of paid freelance jobs for our amazing community of creators as we enter exciting new territories across the globe. We can’t wait to get started!”
Creative Commission is headquartered in London and is the leading platform connecting creatives with the music industry. It brings together its community of a large membership base with clients including Warner Music Group, Universal Music Group, Sony Music, Columbia Music, Interscope Records, Atlantic Records, and Virgin Records.
Details of the Talenthouse acquisition of Creative Commission were not disclosed. The signing of the acquisition took place on April 27, 2022.
Talenthouse also hired the team who built Sponsokit and acquired the AI-based, data-driven software platform for influencer marketing. Both parties of that transaction agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. Talenthouse uses the Sponsokit software as an additional campaign management tool and to enhance its data analytics.
