Sync Rep’n.


Artist Collective.

about

LEAKY SYNC is a boutique music licensing collective consisting of recording artists, musicians, producers, labels, and publishers, representing contemporary + legacy music sync rights. Our sync reps pitch songs for placement in advertising, games, on-demand streaming, cable TV, and film.


Creatively, LEAKY SYNC plays an A&R role, by teaming-up creators within the collective, guiding collaborators to craft a sync-friendly cover, new song, remix or rework, with the option of using pre-cleared samples from the legacy catalogs we rep.


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.

collabs

LEAKY SYNC has early conversations with artists on how they feel about being introduced to other creators we'd recommend for a potential collab on a cover, new song, remix or rework. Artists who resonate, they decide on how they want to move forward with their craft. Under an A&R role, we present musician support, admin resources, and pre-cleared sample ideas to play around with, while checking-in on the entire process from inception to final mix that leads into dialog around distribution & promotion plans that go into the scheduled release.

distro + promo

With an artist & label services background, it made sense for our parent company, Circulate Music to merge its resources in forming Leaky Sync Distro x Promo geared to support the LEAKY SYNC collective as a whole. This global distribution & music promotion service allows Leaky Sync to locate music discovery opportunities that centers in on forming a roadmap leading up to a more diversified royalty stream.

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.
