Built By Musicians...For Musicians.


Our Story


In 2013,ThatsMyGig.com was founded for one big reason...
to bridge the gap between GIG SEEKERS and an exclusive MUSIC INDUSTRY.

ThatsMyGig.com began as a publication, but has quickly become the strongest employment website in the music industry. Since we launched our job board in October of 2015, over 30 major-label artists have used ThatsMyGig.com to hire their musicians and crew. Thousands of employers have joined, including recording and touring artists, artist managers, record label A&R, booking agents, casting agents, churches, production companies, cruise ships and more.

Finding a gig in the music industry, up until now, has been about 'who you know'...we think it should be more about 'how good you are'. For the first time in the history of music, up-and-coming musicians and crew have an opportunity to seek and apply to major gigs in the music industry. We have bridged that gap between an exclusive music industry and YOU.


Do More – Do Better

We are a career building, pro-recruiting, resource providing
power house!

ThatsMyGig.com is not just an employment site, we're a community that empowers musicians to think, to grow, to lead, and to create successful careers for themselves!

Meet Team TMG

ThatsMyGig.com was built by professional musicians and is run by musicians to this day. In 2013, husband and wife team Derek and Brianne Williams had a simple thought: Why isn't there a legitamate employment site for the music industry? At the time, Brianne was a recording artist in Nashville as part of a trio called Danger Love Saint. Derek was a professional guitarist who was touring with several major-label country artists in Nashville. The couple began TMG by publishing interviews and articles about how to find and keep work in the music industry. The team has a passion to teaching and serving, and that is why ThatsMyGig.com offers free membership and content to all. Learn more about our team...
