CORD was founded in 2009. We named our company CORD because we wanted to express our desire and ability to connect.
We connect creativity to business, business to the music industry and most importantly, brands to their audiences; all through the power of music.
Music has power. Our expertise lies in being able to harness this power to create deep, meaningful engagement; to build sustainable and recognisable brand image; to help brands and agencies, musicians and the music industry to grow their reputations and thrive.
