WE CREATE. LICENSE. CURATE. & PRODUCE. MUSIC.
FOR - AGENCIES, PRODUCTION COMPANIES, CREATIVE DIRECTORS, DIGITAL MEDIA, MUSIC SUPERVISORS, AND GLOBAL BRANDS.
Play + Record is a network of creative, inspiring, and hard-working individuals who love music. What started out as a couple of home-recorded songs a few years ago has evolved into an award-winning custom music/sync house and media-based music library.
Our composers and writers have been featured in Rolling Stone, Filter, and Under The Radar magazines. They’ve played arenas, clubs, dive bars and festivals in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada. They’ve shared stages with everyone from todays most influential indie bands to Janes Additction, Jimmy Eat World, The Who, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. We live to write, record, and play music.
We work directly with everyone from some of the world’s leading brands, advertising agencies, production companies, music supervisors and creative directors to non-profit organizations, independent film-makers, and small companies to make award-winning sound for picture. We specialize in custom music, but we also license some of todays best independent artists, and offer a library full of carefully curated, hand-crafted music from real artists.
CUSTOM MUSIC/SOUND DESIGN
We love creating original music. Custom Music is our specialty and main focus. From full-length feature films to unique commercial spots, we’re able to create anything that you can imagine. Call us today and start beat -boxing or humming your wildest ideas into the phone, and we'll create the perfect soundtrack for your visual story.
Our library is not your standard music library. We’ve carefully selected relevant music from some of our favorite independent artists and their various side-projects, solo projects and random ventures into sound creation. Our library covers today's relevant genres and contains great music from multiple artists from around the world. Most of our Library tracks are composed by the same artists in our catalogue. So, rather than call them library tracks, we prefer to call them artist b-sides.
