Clowdy is a new online platform that tries to solve two issues faced by the music industry. First, artists don't have a résumé like most, as their history is about their projects – not where they worked. Hence LinkedIn doesn’t quite work for creatives. Secondly, too often many those who contribute to a project (like session players, vocalists, editors or producers) aren’t properly credited and recognised.
In this WeSpin Recipes podcast interview, the Clowdy co-founders Stuart Logan, Damien Shiells talk on how their social network works. In short, when someone publishes a project they credit the people that contributed to it. The project is then automatically added to everyone's profile – giving everyone the recognition they deserve.
Listen to the conversation to learn who Clowdy mainly targets right now, and how to use it as a personal creative portfolio.

• Why LinkedIn doesn’t work well for the creative industries
