Posted by

Looks like California-based indie music publisher/production music library Black Toast Music is having themselves a TIME. Three of their artists have just gotten placements in an array of high profile campaigns.

Read on for the full details, as provided by Black Toast Music:

Prominent independent music publisher and production music library Black Toast Music continues to expand its outreach within the advertising industry. Black Toast MusicCEO/Founder Bob Mair has announced that Black Toast recently licensed tracks from three of its artists, Paul Otten, Brent Magstadt, and Jen And Them – each of whom is signed to Black Toast Records (the company's record label) to a number of notable advertising campaigns.

Regarding the company's expansion within the advertising space, Mair said, "Through solid new relationships with top marketing agencies and production companies, we have been extremely fortunate to have supplied tracks from a variety of our newly signed Indie Artists to a diverse array of exciting, recent advertising campaigns."

Black Toast recently licensed "Breeze," by Black Toast Records artist Paul Otten, for a new campaign promoting the Duck Tape® brand. The spot, featuring Otten's extremely upbeat and catchy tune, just broke across the U.S. and Canada. The new campaign promotes a variety of uses for colored duck tape during everyday life moments.

Additionally, Black Toast recently licensed the song "Always," by Paul Otten, for a campaign promoting, a subsidiary of Staples. That spot recently broke on radio.

For the Big Star Denim brand, Black Toast licensed the tune "Wake Up Call," by Paul Otten. That spot can be seen here:

Black Toast also licensed two songs for two upcoming spots promoting Walmart: "Right As Rain," by Paul Otten, and "We Smile," by Brent Magstadt, another Black Toast Records artist.

And, for a spot advertising the Whole Foods grocery chain, Black Toast supplied the track "If I Was You," by up and coming Black Toast Records artist, Jen And Them. The track runs from 1:01 – 1:46 here:

SongHunters Testimonials

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"
