All By Play

Let's turn your melodies into movements

Welcome to All By Play: a distinctive 360-marketing agency for musicians, labels and music festivals. Founded by former Spotifyer and Berklee grad Dhaval Kothari in January 2023, All By Play is a dedicated partner in the world of music promotion.

What We Offer: We believe in championing good music. Our focus is on providing the right resources to artists, labels and festival organisers to amplify their profiles, releases and other projects to reach the right audiences.

How We Work: The All By Play team’s industry expertise, musical competence and creative flair converge at the common objective of empowering musicians to achieve the recognition they truly deserve.

We start all our campaigns with an understanding of client goals, budgets, and duration of the retainership they’d like to sign with us. IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT ONE SON; when you work with us, there are weekly one-on-one sessions where we analyse and brainstorm on active growth retargeting.

At the end of each project, we provide the most essential thing artists usually overlook: YOUR DATA! We offer proper insights into what worked and what did not work for you, and what is projected to be helpful for future releases.
