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.

Additionally, Leaky Sync Distro is available strictly for the collective providing Global Distribution with Licensing & Promotional Services in support of their back catalog and upcoming releases.

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.

::: Featured Colabs :::

We recently connected our Musicom legacy catalog client to DJ Drez, who chose to remix a classic Gregory Isaacs track, due for release on January 12th, 2024.

case study: sam opoku

Leaky Sync created an infographic for Afrobeat / R&B artist, Sam Opoku to shine some light on how his Sync placement for song 'Yellow' in top 10 Netflix Series, Ginny & Georgia quickly helped boost Sam's song streaming numbers and increased music discovery via Shazam. The song has now reached over 1M streams on Spotify.

  • Full transparent credits & metadata will need to be supplied, including Song Lyrics.
  • Download link to Well Recorded, High Quality and Mastered AIIF's (are prefered) or WAV files downloadable, preferably via

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.


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.
