From 2002-2015, Toolshed provided specialty marketing and digital licensing services to over 350 ground-breaking artists and record labels/film companies, sports brands, and tech brands. Toolshed combined blog publicity with digital campaign strategy and record label catalog licensing, and became a powerhouse in the field, orchestrating campaigns for the first two Arcade Fire albums, several Sufjan Stevens albums, Ani DiFranco, Pixies, TV on the Radio, Amy Ray / Indigo Girls, and many, many others.

Toolshed also licensed the catalogs of multiple independent record labels to digital music services. Seminal independent clients such as Touch and Go Records, Saddle Creek, Righteous Babe Records, Merge Records, Morr Music, PIAS, spinART, Kill Rock Stars, and many others contracted exclusively with Toolshed for licensing as well as digital marketing of their catalogs.

Toolshed closed its label and artist marketing and social media division in 2015. Mission accomplished.
