We're thrilled and proud that the words "award-winning" can now precede any mention of our proprietary licensing platform BrandsForBands. The site just won Gold at the prestigious Hermes Creative Awardsin the Website Overall/Professional Service category. A giant high-five and slap on the back to our awesome developer JLOOP for this momentous achievement. Congrats, guys. NOW GET BACK TO WORK!
We love working with clients who are adventurous in their music choices. We're also big fans of bluegrass and vintage country music. So imagine our glee when our friends at Marc Jacobs asked us to clear "Footprints In The Snow" by bluegrass legend Bill Monroe for use in this Spring 2014 Eyewear spot. It's kind of a Laura Ingalls-meets-downtown-boho thing and we love it. Who's next? Desmond Dekker? Oscar Peterson? We can only hope.
We recently cleared two songs as part of our on-going work on Bethesda Softworks' upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order video game: John Lee Hooker's classic "Boom Boom", featured in this gameplay trailer as a German-language re-record (the central conceit of the game is that the Nazis won World War II), and "Nowhere To Run" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, featured in this trailer. Lots more happening with this project - stay tuned!
When headphone and audio accessories brand Skullcandy urgently needed a handful of songs to include at kiosks in major retailers worldwide, we were happy to help. We immediately posted the opportunity in our proprietary BrandsForBands platform, and conducted an offline search, as well. The response from the label community was swift and huge, resulting in tracks from Wallpaper. (Sony), Mapei (Downtown/Universal) and Ghost Beach (Nettwerk/SONGS).
Outdoor apparel powerhouse Columbia Sportswear recently called us with an urgent need for a song to accompany the unveiling of the uniforms they designed and manufactured for the US, Russian and Canadian Olympic ski teams. We secured the rights to a track by EDM legend Pretty Lights within hours and the day was saved.
Santa Monica-based BeachMint is one of the brightest lights in the emerging social commerce landscape. When they enlisted our help in finding the perfect song for a couple TV and web spots they were producing, we were happy to help out, eventually pairing them with excellent emerging Minneapolis band Bad Bad Hats.
Danny Davis is a snowboarding legend, so when our longtime client Burton Snowboards needed a perfect but affordable soundtrack for his recent 22-minute Peace Park TV special, they relied on our proprietary BrandsForBands platform. The result? Eleven great songs from established artists and labels, including Mexican Summer, Domino, Dangerbird and others.
Our friends at Fossil recently hit us up on behalf of their Danish brand Skagen with an urgent request: they needed songs by established Danish artists to preload into iPhones being distributed to European VIPs. We quickly mobilized, sourcing a batch of quality tunes then obtaining the necessary clearances on a ridiculously short deadline. Mission accomplished!
