Posted by Stage 32 Staff - Julie



4 million independent musicians. 5 million fans. 200,000 new songs uploaded every month. A simple way to curate them all. Filmmakers, meet ReverbNation, an online platform that helps emerging artists all over the world connect with fans, brands, festivals, and, you guessed it, sync licensing opportunities.

Unless you have a big-studio budget, you likely spend a lot of your time scouring the internet for indie music that fits your tastes, bookmarking songs for potential future use, and attempting to create some sort of order out of all the chaos. Since 2006, record labels, film production companies, and music publishers - both big and small - have utilized ReverbNation’s unique solution to sign new talent, place undiscovered gems, and license content from music’s future superstars...all at little-to-no cost.

Unlike your traditional music licensing sources, ReverbNation works with you to execute a customized marketing campaign to find the perfect music for your project. As part of that, we promote your project to our artists, fans, and followers, exposing you to well over 10 million creators and those who support them.

Our community of emerging artists is one of the largest in the world and they regularly look to us for exclusive industry access.


The Easiest Way To Find The Perfect Indie Song For Your Film

Here’s how it all works.

  • An account manager will work with you to learn about your specific needs and tastes as the first step in launching a ReverbNation Opportunity.
  • We’ll then create a custom landing page that describes your opportunity, including what type of music you are seeking (or not seeking), and providing an overview of your project.
  • A custom message will be emailed to millions of independent artists promoting your Opportunity, inviting them to submit a song for consideration.
  • Using our powerful reviewing platform, you will be able to easily listen to, filter, and rate submitted songs. You can also see in-depth fan data for each artist and ultimately select the right music for your project.

As a bonus, artists who submit their music typically share a custom message about your Opportunity - designed by you - on their social media accounts, buidling significant awareness for your project and brand.
