Yes. For original music, we represent a boutique list of unique and experienced Music Directors, Lyricists and Artists.

If you need to license a single song, it could take anywhere between 5-15 days to find the right track, contact the copyright owners and negotiate a license. Projects like web shows and films can take longer.
