Music Matters

The way a brand looks is a carefully managed and well funded component of every brand strategy. However, despite the almost equal impact of sound, music rarely features in any strategic brand thinking and is dramatically less well funded.

In Music Matters, we investigate why this is and uncover why the process of finding, selecting and licensing music for campaigns is so difficult and stressful.

Music Week Magazine (the premier music industry trade paper) published a piece about the topics discussed in the report, which you can access here.
