Music marketing and promotions services company International Solutions has launched in Australia and New Zealand with an office based in Melbourne.

The expansion will increase International Solutions global footprint, with offices in Amsterdam, London and New York.

Founder and CIO of the company Paolo d'Alessandro commented: "I am thrilled to be able to extend our international music services business into Australia and New Zealand.

"After London, Amsterdam and New York adding Melbourne to our setup allows us to focus our attention on some of the absolutely incredible music coming from Australian and New Zealand artists and help them establish an international foothold outside of their home market.

 "Conversely, we now bring a domestic Australian team to our existing and future clients, with boots on the ground and a very strong local in-house promotion expertise," Alessandro said.

International Solutions offers hands-on marketing & promotion services and manages a large network of local promotion teams that promote local and international music.

Melbourne prides itself as being the live music capital of Australia, with hundreds of music venues, big and small located all throughout the city and surrounding suburbs.  Through its creative industries arm, Creative Victoria, the Victorian Government has invested over A$12 million in grants, and live music programs designed to enhance the industry, which contributes an estimated A$500 million dollars to the Victorian economy each year.
