About Suno

At Suno, we are building a future where anyone can make music. You can make a song for any moment with just a few short words. Award-winning artists use Suno, but our core user base consists of everyday people making music — often for the first time.

We are a team of musicians and AI experts, including alumni from Spotify, TikTok, Meta and Kensho. We like to ship code, make music and drink coffee. Our company culture celebrates music and experimenting with sound — from lunchroom conversations to the studio in our office.
