APM Music Partners with ReverbNation.com
Los Angeles (Sept 21, 2010) – APM Music, the largest production music library in North America, announces the launching of “ReverbNation Music", an exclusive production music library supplying high quality independent artist music to producers of television, film, videogames and more, via a partnership with ReverbNation.com, the leading online marketing and promotion platform for over 850,000 musicians, labels, managers and venues.
“The marketplace is inundated with non-exclusive aggregators gathering and offering content en masse with limited if any concern for the artist or client. This has not been beneficial to artists, to clients or to the marketplace as a whole,” stated Adam Taylor, APM Music president.
APM established the partnership to address issues affecting the licensing of indie music into programming and is founded upon the pillars of quality content and representation, fair price for artist and client, and freedom from worry about copyright claims. In contrast to other indie song licensing programs, the music in the ReverbNation Music library is exclusive to APM, is vetted by both ReverbNation and APM for quality and any potential copyright issues, and is backed by APM’s indemnification guarantees. The program offers artists access to the powerful APM distribution channel system.
Utilizing its deep understanding of artists’ fanbases and popularity, ReverbNation invites a select group of artists to audition for the library. Every track is then reviewed by APM’s music department prior to acceptance into ReverbNation Music. This process ensures that the library enjoys the same quality as every other track in the APM catalog. Auditions are ongoing with new music being added to the library continuously.
This rigorous dual vetting offers producers a collection of fully cleared indie music of the highest quality at APM’s regular library rates, completely risk-free and indemnified by APM against any issues that could derive from sampling, non-exclusivity or copyright claims.
“Not only does APM offer a tremendous distribution channel for the ReverbNation artists, but they share our values and a common vision around innovation in indie music licensing,” says Michael Doernberg, ReverbNation CEO. “ReverbNation is committed to bringing the best opportunities to its artist community, and it is difficult to find a more perfect partner than APM.”
