SYNC licensing is becoming more and more important for independent musicians and record companies. It’s a key revenue stream and can offer huge exposure for the artists / songs featured. Having a song in an advert, show or game can give your music the boost it needs to take your career to the next level.
Landing SYNC placements is notoriously difficult but the three companies below aim to make it just a little bit easier. For more sync licensing resources check out our free music industry directory.
