"Once the exclusivity period is up on my track, am I free to send it to other companies and/or pitch it myself?"
The short answer is yes, but the real answer is a little more complicated.
Lately we've seen an uptick in clients requesting some form of exclusivity with their licenses. This means that in order for us to quickly and effectively pitch your music and execute on those terms, we need to know the full and complete license history of any given piece of music in the catalog. Obviously this isn't possible if there are multiple entities all pitching and licensing the same track. Because of this, it's important that we are the exclusive reps for each and every song in our catalog.
So, when a track's exclusivity term is up, you're absolutely free to send the track elsewhere and to pitch it yourself, we just ask that you give us a heads up beforehand to make sure that there are no conflicts.
"How do I get an album featured on the front page of your public catalog?"
The first step here is pretty simple: Make an album! Obviously we love getting one-off submissions and tracks based on our searches but if you're looking to have that little bit of extra visibility, a small album is the way to go.
Albums typically range from 5-12 tracks (5 for longer, trailer tracks, up to 12 for shorter, ad-focused tracks), they have a name, some album art, and a specific theme, style or genre that ties the whole thing together. We swap out our featured albums often, so we're usually able to shine the spotlight on new releases,
