What is SoundCloud?

Founded in 2007, SoundCloud is an artist-first platform powered by a global community of artists and listeners on the pulse of what’s new, now and next in music culture. We empower independent artists with the tools, services and resources they need to help them build and grow their careers. With over 250 million tracks from 30 million artists from 193 countries on SoundCloud, we are the largest audio discovery platform in the world.
