Welcome to Epidemic Sound. We want to hear your Music!
Partner with us to create music without limitations. Whether you’re a producer, songwriter, instrumentalist or vocalist, we want to collaborate with you.
We offer musicians the opportunity to partner with us to work, develop, and earn money from their music, while working to soundtrack storytellers, streaming playlists, broadcasters, multinational retailers and boutique store owners.
Unaffiliated from traditional collecting societies, we pay up-front for tracks and acquire their exclusive financial rights. Base payments are never based on usage, and we split all of our streaming revenue 50/50. Our music creators are not affiliated with collecting societies and PROs.
What we offer:
Financial Independence & Flexibility
We pay competitive up-front rates to acquire ownership of all the music in our catalog. All streaming revenue is split 50/50.
We offer short, flexible, non-exclusive agreements to our music creators, never locking anyone in.
Your music goes into a catalog with eyes on it from production companies, brands, and digital publishers that play a significant role in the modern media ecosystem. Tracks make their way to streaming platforms, where we push them on playlists with hundreds of thousands of followers.
Guidance & Support
Our team of music professionals advise each creator from the first demo to the final mix to make sure each track becomes as great as it can be. These Reviewers provide extensive personalized feedback to help music creators achieve the best version of their music's original creative intent.
Epidemic also provides in-house mastering.
We appreciate that no two musicians are identical; motivations, backgrounds, ambitions, styles, everything can vary from person to person. Whatever your situation, whatever your ambition, whatever your background, there is a place for you and your music at Epidemic Sound.
What we are looking for:
Collaboration & Versatility
Collaboration remains at the core of how we work with music. We need creators who relish feedback, desire development, and thrive when working toward a common goal.
We look for independent and enterprising creators with strong sense of self and a good head on their shoulders.
Location & Non-Affiliation
Due to legal limitations, we only work with creators based in the United States or Sweden but save all other applications for the future!
Collecting societies (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SoundExchange, etc.) prevent us from working with their songwriters due to their exclusive affiliation agreements. We can only provide opportunities for songwriters and producers unaffiliated with collecting societies.
Quality & Diversity
The world knows us for the quality and authenticity of our tracks; music from writers, producers, instrumentalists, and artists who want to be themselves and succeed with their creativity.
Good music comes from everywhere. We want to work with creatives from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented populations.
