These projects show the diversity of uses from the Musync catalog. But, due to the highly sensitive nature of some of our client's projects, we are not allowed to display many of our favorites publicly. Clients like Apple, Microsoft, Google, Visa, Dell keep things quiet, so we respect that. Other projects we can't demo include TV programs for the likes of The Riches, Ugly Betty, Damages, The Big C, NCIS and more. The projects here illustrate a variety of uses from the Musync catalog of over 2000 indie artists from all over the world.



The Musync team is constantly searching for new musicians, listening to thousands of songs, filtering down to the very best indie artists available for licensing. These are a few of the current favorites.

Submit Music

We're always looking for new unique, original, hip, awesome music, BUT PLEASE READ BELOW >>>>B E F O R E<<<< SUBMITTING. We'd love to work with everyone, but we can't. We started Musync in 2001 and have learned what works for our clients and what doesn't, so please read below, do the homework and if you feel your music qualifies, click that big button and we'll be in touch. We don't want to come off as aloof, we just don't want to over sell, set expectations that aren't real or waste anyone's time.

Attention labels, publishers, catalogs and bands:

We are always seeking large collections of broadcast quality, mastered, original, unique, indie music that is appropriate for use in television commercials, movie trailers, television programs, movies and for the Internet. Our clients are usually looking for instrumentals first, vocals second.


The fastest way to learn what we need:
CLICK ON the PROJECTS MENU ABOVE to watch and listen to the music our clients have been choosing from the Musync catalog.

How we work with musicians:

Our contract is non-exclusive, and allows us to act on your behalf. Our clients often need to make their music choices quickly, so they want music that is 100% pre-cleared and ready to license fast – no time for negotiations or other approvals. Since we split fees 50/50, we always try to get the most money for every license. We’re serious about helping great musicians make money from their music. We don’t license to porn, politics or other controversial uses. If your music is proven and has been licensed for use in broadcast, film or Internet, this is a big plus. Mention it in your message to us and include a link to brag about what you’ve done.


The importance of tagged music:

Music tagged with complete and accurate metadata is a top priority in today’s world of music licensing. You may do your own tagging, but it’s tedious and we find a lot of errors in spelling, punctuation, foreign accents and more, so we have to stop the admission process. If you need professional tagging, please contact our partner Tag Team Analysis (they’re fast, accurate and reasonable). If your music is NOT TAGGED, we just can’t take the time to listen to it. Sorry, but we’re just too busy helping our signed musicians get licenses. Just make sure your music is tagged. This is huge! If it’s properly tagged, we can get you direct exposure to over 2200 producers, directors, music supervisors and editors who are looking for music every day, but the system requires carefully tagged music first.

Our Book

We (Seb and Randy) noticed all the books about music licensing were written by lawyers or other people outside the business, so we decided to put together a book using our 14 year experience from inside the business - Musync. We fully understand the classic mistakes musicians make trying to get their work into the hands of busy creatives who demand great music. It's a challenge, but using our guidance, ideas and examples, the process becomes far easier than most people make it appear. The book includes details of what to say, how to contact the right people, who to ask for, and more. It's a practical guide designed to give inside information that was not available before. This is the second edition and is available with 6 directories and a glossary (, or just the book on Amazon, Apple iBooks and Google Play (see the buttons below). Tell your musician friends who want to make money licensing their music. Our goal is to help musicians earn money from what they love and do best - create more music for all of us to enjoy and use to bring projects to life.
