Music Libraries/Licensing

Hey everyone! I'm trying to get into writing music for libraries and I was hoping you could share some advice and tell me about your overall experience. Which ones would you recommend to apply for and what approach do you consider the best? Thanks!

Michael Vignola

Hi Julio, I would say look at what fits you the best, and its a good idea to join no more than 3, depending on what you're looking to do with you music; then you may want to go with one that deals with mostly commercials and one that is more film oriented in my opinion. Check out MusicBed, Audiosocket, Music Dealers. Hope this helps.

Hi Michael, thanks a lot for the advice, I will definitely look into those.

You'll find east west, and vienna, in the biggest films of the day. I have personally used east west platinum for 10 years.

Aim for the stars Julio. If you're looking for the best music libraries I highly recommend you check out Music of the Sea, Inc. and Epic Music LA. I'm signed to both labels/music catalogs. They helped get in my music in for Fox Sports, ESPN, Imax, Netflix, and Oprah Winfrey Network. I personally know both CEOs at both companies so I can put in a good word for you in you have some awesome tracks. Feel free to send me a message.

Hey Jeremy! That's too kind of you thanks a lot.

Hi Julio, Check out If you are in LA (or can get here) I highly recommend attending the Production Music Conference in October (info on the site). The PMA is a Production Music organization and the listed board of directors is a who's who of the biggest libraries with the most reach. There are many other fine libraries listed as well!
