(US) Artists, Composers and Producers Wanted
Music – New York City
Welcome to Epidemic Sound. We want your Music!
We are a music supplier based in Sweden with offices in New York City. Our sole purpose is to help individuals and companies soundtrack their stories with quality music. We know better than most, since two of our founders are multi-platinum music producers, that you can’t have quality music without quality musicians.
We provide content creators with exceptional music in the simplest way possible. At the same time we offer songwriters and producers the opportunity to work with, and earn money from, their music. Epidemic has a strong history with building long-lasting creative relationships with composers, producers, and recording artists.
We pay upfront for your work and acquire the exclusive financial rights. We are unaffiliated from traditional collecting societies and payment is never based on usage. You are always paid, whether the track is ever used or not. Composers must be unaffiliated with collecting societies and PROs.
We pay competitive rates upfront for all music we buy, regardless if it is ever licensed.
Some producers make several tracks a week, others make one track per month. Set your own schedule. No limits, no reservations.
All producers are provided with a dedicated listening team with extensive music industry experience, packed with producers, songwriters, and engineers who will help you grow as an artist.
The majority of our producers have worked with us for several years.
Your music goes into a database 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 Spotify and other streaming platforms, where we push them on playlists with hundreds of thousands of followers, and we’ll split the streaming revenue with you.
What we are looking for:
We want independent and enterprising producers/artists/composers, especially those making Hip Hop (Trap, Boom Bap, and Chicago styles preferred). We’re especially interested in versatile creators that can write, record, and mix their own work.
Willingness to Develop & Collaborate
Artists create new music for us based on reference tracks and playlists, and a team of seasoned music industry professionals provide feedback at every step of the process. We want talent looking to grow and hone their skills as writers, producers, and performers.
Collecting societies in the United States (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SoundExchange, etc.), or any equivalent society internationally, prevent us from working with their songwriters. We can only provide opportunities for artists unaffiliated with collecting societies.
Good music comes from everywhere. We want to work with producers, composers, and artists from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented populations.
Epidemic Sound is renowned for the quality and authenticity of our music. Your tracks will be screened for quality by our music team.
