I work with a music licensing agency called Visionworks, out of Los Angeles, that places songs in movies, TV shows, advertisements, film, and video games. I will be referring select tracks every month to their team for licensing opportunities. Right now, it is invite only, but I will be opening up a submission portal soon right here.
What Am I Looking For?
In contrast to the broad range of music categories that we cover on the editorial side of CHILLFILTR, the styles we are currently looking for are strictly Electro Pop, Commercial, and Conscious Hip Hop (to wit: clean). There are also a few technical requirements: you need to own your masters and publishing rights, you need to provide an instrumental version of your song, and you need to be registered with a PRO (Performance Rights Organization), like ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or SACEM.
Finally, you need to have a sound that closely matches an artist that is charting right now: Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande. Look here for more examples. I will be very selective, so please keep that in mind.
I look forward to working with all of you. I am very excited to offer the opportunity to share your songs with a national audience. Sometimes, all it takes is the right song licensed in the right place to open up a whole new future.
