Three Music Licensing Trends You Need to Know

It is important to diversify in a music economy that is constantly changing, especially where licensing is concerned. While television and commercials are still great placements, it helpful to keep your eyes and ears open to finding the next best thing. Think of all the games, apps (not just music centered), experiences and even workouts that set the stage with incredible soundtracks. After all, we truly live in a world of screens lending itself to unlimited potential possibilities for sync and licensing.

Fairly licensing music to companies at an appropriate value will generate a higher ROI to rights holders, and will be protected if (and when) new legislation takes place. Here are three positive trends and companies that you should be licensing your music to. (more…)

Out Today by The Orchard: Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Hoops & More

You may not be hearing from us as much next week as we spend time with family or maxing out our credit cards in the spirit of Black Friday. Nevertheless, we have a few masterful releases that are sure to keep you jamming. This week we pay tribute to a beautiful and vivacious artist along with her familial band in an album of unreleased magic, a talented and simplistic indie lo-fi album and a Latin album that will get you grooving, all out today.

There was no such thing as slowing down in the eyes of Sharon Jones. The late singer left this world last year but not without making the absolute most of her last moments. From wildly energetic performances on the road to recording her next album, Jones lived her final time to the fullest with the Dap-Kings at her side. The contagiously vibrant performer lives on through her posthumous release aptly titled Soul Of A Woman. Because she was surely one hell of a woman with a whole lot of soul. Her light shines through the new album, taking the classic feel of 60’s and 70’s R&B and injecting it’s own authentic spirit. Listen to ‘Matter of Time’ below and find the full album here.
