    Centralia, IL

    One thing I really love and appreciate about Songtradr is how personable their staff is! Any time I have a question they immediately get back to me and speak candidly with me. Not only that, they are really for the artists succeeding. They take the time to promote a user's music each week in their featured artist weekly email blast they send out. In the short amount of time I've been signed up to Songtradr, I've already placed a few of my songs that has let thousands of people hear my music. I plan on sticking with Songtradr for as long as possible! I have yet to find a company that works as closely with individual composers and musicians like Songtradr does. Their staff has made me feel wanted and my music appreciated. I could not ask for anything better!

  • Solillaquists Of Sound

    Orlando, FL

    Licensing our music has always been a part of our business that we’ve wanted to play a more active role in but up until now, it’s been something we’ve had to rely on others to handle. Songtradr is exactly what we needed to change that. Now, for the first time, I feel like we have total control in the area of our business that is our biggest revenue stream. I can’t express how important that is.

  • James Bianco

    Editor and Assistant Music Supervisor for NCIS Los Angeles (CBS), Bloodline (Netflix) and others
    Los Angeles, CA

    Songtradr is one of my main go-to music licensing platforms for finding and licensing great music in a pinch. Their search engine is robust and easy to use, and all of the necessary licensing information is elegantly displayed. Even better, many tracks list clear set prices for all of the different types of rights, from trailer, to festival, to podcasts, etc.. This saves a lot of time not having to do the whole song and dance of negotiating back and forth with labels and publishers. Best of all, the quality of music is fantastic and authentic; submitted by real artists rather than a production house and carefully curated by industry professionals. If you need to license quality music quickly and painlessly for your project, I highly recommend Songtradr!
