LEAKY SYNC is a boutique music licensing collective consisting of recording artists, musicians, producers, and labels + publishers, representing contemporary + legacy music for sync rights. Creatively, LEAKY SYNC plays an A&R or executive producer role, by teaming-up creators within the collective to craft new sync-friendly works; whether it be a cover, new song, remix or rework.


Available to the collective, Leaky Sync Distro provides global digital distribution with direct licensing & promo support focused on establishing music discovery for back catalogs, collabs, and upcoming releases.

a collaborative collective

Leaky Sync has early conversations with certain artists on how they feel about being introduced to other creators we'd recommend for a potential collab and/or co-write, with the goal for artists to record sync-friendly covers or original songs, and even a remix or rework.


If artists resonate, they decide on how they want to move forward. From there, Leaky Sync can then get involved in an A&R or executive producer role from the artists’ own recording, mixing & mastering process. Upon final mix, Leaky Sync then discusses the distribution and promotion plans that go into scheduling for release.

distro x promo support

Leaky Sync has been listening to rightsowners, from back catalog owners to new release projects, wishing their distributor could provide more promotion for their releases (outside of the general social media marketing / promo tools.)


With a record label and marketing services background, it made sense for our parent company, Circulate Music to find a solution for the collective as a whole. In doing so, Leaky Sync Distro x Promo was established as a global white label distribution service, with user-friendly features. This allows Leaky Sync to focus more time and resources locating music discovery opportunities that centers in on forming a roadmap that leads to a more diversified royalty stream.


With a team history on releasing well over 250+ titles to date, Leaky Sync has the skill set to present both back catalog and new releases to a variety of media relations.

next up, song exploitation

Leaky Sync parent company, Circulate Music recently formed its publishing arm, Circulate Artists Publishing to help rightsowners within the collective with their administration and song exploitation needs.


On the admin side, we’ll be announcing the global administrator we’ve partnered with to aid in registering works, while collecting outstanding and future royalties with multiple agencies, collection societies, music rights entities, and companies where a direct deal license is available for publishers.


This will give Circulate Artists Publishing the time and resources to begin to license, pitch, promote, and exploit works across the globe, where publishing royalties are available to help diversify music rights monetization in more territories.


Stay tuned...

featured case study

The music supervision team for the Netflix hit series, Ginny & Georgia reached out to Leaky Sync after discovering this perfect song on our Disco account, for the show’s season two finale, as the character Ginny, is seen to wear the color yellow quite a bit.


In fact, the song they liked was titled ‘Yellow’ by Ghanian born / Phoenix, AZ based, Afrobeat / R&B artist, Sam Opoku. The song was licensed to distribute and market under Leaky Sync’s parent company, Circulate Music at the time of the sync placement.


Leaky Sync created an infographic to shine some light on how Sam’s sync for 'Yellow' was impacted once the show became a top 10 Netflix Series, Ginny & Georgia quickly helped boost Sam's song streaming numbers & increased music discovery via Shazam. The song has now reached over 1M streams on Spotify.

a&r program

Leaky Sync is reconnecting with artist and industry relations who still have access to or are active in the creator space, who continue to make a positive impact in their music communities.

We envision Sound x Culture A&R Reps introducing creative rightsowners (artists, bands, DJs, producers, remixers) to Leaky Sync who are creating sync-friendly music for Leaky Sync to potentially represent certain songs.

points

Commission Icon

For all creative rightsowners referred by an A&R rep that Leaky Sync does sign, the rep will earn the following commission points from said rightsowners‘ earnings:


  • 10% from the Next Sync Fee that Leaky Sync places.
  • 3-5% from Digital Distribution Royalties (performance based)

All commissions come from the top of Leaky Sync's NET earnings, after rightsowners have been paid.

A&R Reps will send referral links for rightsowners to sign-up to for Global Distro, allowing reps to track earnings for each release via their own account.
