Australian Indie Artists Impress Hollywood
A three person team in Brisbane are making waves in Hollywood providing indie songs for Warner Brothers, NBC, HBO, Universal and Disney.
Music Licensing company, Hook, Line and Sync have over seven thousand tracks from outstanding unsigned artists ready for licensing.
Australian artists on Hook, Line and Sync’s catalogue have had their music featured on Longmire, True Blood, Shameless, Royal Pains, Franklin and Bash, Saving Hope, Degrassi, Burn Notice and The Listener as well as big budget films including Rock of Ages.
The company was founded five years ago in the Managing Director, Jamie Brammah’s West End lounge room as a way to support the local Indie music scene. The former band manager and radio promotions guru wanted to give indie artists an alternative promotional platform to the traditional mediums.
Today Hook Line and Sync artists not only reach a major audience through film and television but are also featured on commercials for big business brands including Swisse, Contiki, Jeans West, Qantas, and Warner Village Theme Parks.
The likes of Clemenger BBDO, The Hallway, Publicis Mojo, and Noisy Beast, have all come knocking on the company doors to search for the ultimate track for national campaigns without the price tag of major label songs and without time consuming music clearance issues.
“Our clients receive the perfect song for their projects, and the artist gets paid. But more importantly they reach a brand new fan base” explains CEO Jamie Brammah.
“A well placed song connects with an audiences of millions which then generates a buzz for the artist leading to thousands of clicks on Youtube and Airplay, added press coverage and digital sales. Opportunities like this give artists hope to continue creating and that’s what the music industry should be about, songs.”
Over thirty genres of music from Hook Line and Sync are ready for immediate licensing which means easy copyright clearance for movie studios, television networks and advertising agencies looking for a more affordable sound track option.
