Bailiff Secures Synch Placement on FOX’s Cooper’s Guide to Surviving Life

Can you imagine watching a hit television show on one of the most popular networks and hearing your song play? That’s what happened to ReverbNation CONNECT band Bailiff this past Sunday as they watched FOX’s Cooper’s Guide to Surviving Life. “I haven’t sat that embarrassingly close the television since the Ninja Turtles were on,” said Josh Siegel of Bailiff.

The Chicago-based indie rock band secured their first synch placement with the help of Hitcher Music. We recently partnered with Hitcher Music, a boutique music services firm specializing in licensing, supervision, marketing, and original music production, to gain access to licensing opportunities for our artists. When Bailiff’s addicting blend of jagged electro-pop, blues, and folk was presented to the music supervisor of the show, their song “Golden Hour” was selected.

“I was thrilled to hear that CONNECT got our song ‘Golden Hour’ placed in the soundtrack for Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life on FOX. Right now is a great time for new bands and new TV shows pairing up to be seen and heard. Bailiff has been hoping to get our music included in a high profile show and this song placement is huge for us,” said Josh.

Listen to “Golden Hour” and get to know Bailiff in the video below.

ReverbNation Artist Dig The Kid Secures Placement on Upcoming “Point Break” Soundtrack

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment were putting the finishing touches on their reimagining of the classic action thriller, Point Break. Almost every little detail of the film had been finished, but there was still one remaining item — a soundtrack. And if there is one thing any blockbuster film needs, it’s a killer soundtrack.

In keeping with the theme of reimagining this classic movie for a new generation, the producers turned to ReverbNation to find some great new music from our hugely talented artist base. And after more than 7,500 submissions, our Curation Team was able to help find the perfect fit — Oakland, CA’s Dig The Kid. Their song “Still Breathing” hit the perfect amount of anthemic and energetic that the film needed. Check out the song here:

5 Questions: Josh Rabinowitz of Grey Advertising on Sync Licensing

Over the past decade, sync licensing has established itself as a reliable source of income for emerging artists. Once the domain of only top-level performers, now artists at all levels are finding success with licensing. In addition to touring, merchandising, and album sales, sync licensing can boost your revenue on a consistent basis. And in today’s digital world, sync licensing is no longer only relegated to film and TV. Artists are placing music across a variety of platforms and devices, including video games, eBooks, and more.

But as attractive as licensing can be for an independent artist, it’s not the easiest realm to navigate. If you’re thinking about getting into this new arena, questions can begin to pile up. To help with that, we spoke to Josh Rabinowitz of New York City-based advertising agency, Grey, who are currently running two licensing opportunities with ReverbNation. Check out some of the helpful advice Joshua gave us, and then be sure to submit your music!
