As we often note, music supervision's definition has expanded far beyond simply licensing songs to picture. Today, the field encompasses a wide range of activities, including matching music artists to brands.

Pepsi's music platform The Sound Drop is an excellent example of music supervision in motion. A partnership between the beverage brand with iHeartMedia, Shazam and Viacom, The Sound Drop was launched by Pepsi in 2016 to help artists "promote their story, share their art and connect directly with their fans."

The latest artist to get a boost from The Sound Drop is Tinashe, soon before the launch of her second album Joyride. She's part of a highly intensive 360 that sees Fox also joining the party, to help promote the hit series "Empire." To see how they put this complex play together, see Gail Mitchell's complete article in Billboard

  • "I'm one of the top Indie songwriter/producers in Canada with a catalog of over 250 songs. The SongHunters - Doug Diamond, Dave Weiss & Dave Hnatiuk, are always emailing me asking for submissions for their placement opportunities. They listen attentively to each of my submissions and end up getting me a synch license every so often - the last one with Airwalk Shoes. These guys are professional, helpful, and prompt with communication, working hard to get my music placed.  And they're nice guys too! Thanks SongHunters!"

"This book had a direct impact on my career. From the multiple books that I have read on building a career in the music industry, this book is the most eye opening, informative, and useful of them all. It is akin to taking the brains and experience of fifty music industry vets and inserting them directly into your head."  –Adam A. Johnson

"Thank you for writing the Music Supervision book. I am a singer/songwriter, but wanted to better understand the perspective of music supervisors, and this book definitely helps me to do that."
