Leaky Sync represents artist, label, and publisher rightsowners by pitching their works for placement across media; primarily for advertising, games, TV, and film.

We seek for great talent (not just licensable quality songs,) making time, and building relationships with artists, bands, composers, DJs, producers, indie record labels, and music publishers.

When it comes to pitching songs, we keep rightsowners abreast on certain briefs that come in, and at times requesting their input and ideas since they are much closer to their craft as creators.

collective activation

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, original works or even a remix project.

If artists resonate, they decide how they want to move forward. From there, Leaky Sync can then get involved in an A&R role from the recording, mixing & mastering process to going over distribution, marketing, and even co-publishing opportunities.

::: The Future :::

We look forward to creating new relationships, developing a community, providing resources, and recommending tools along the way.

Additional focus on networking, while forming alliances and partnerships with creative agencies, collectives, companies and organizations greatly improves our approach in spreading great music.
