[Music Dealers'] unique model has disrupted the music, advertising and media spaces in a powerful way, leading us to confidently predict an even stronger year in 2015.

Music Dealers, a full-service music agency and music licensing platform, is expanding its global business by relaunching two U.S. offices and bolstering its business development team with new hires.

Continuing the company’s rapid growth in 2014, Music Dealers is revitalizing its offices in Los Angeles and New York to strengthen its relationship with the film, television, video game and advertising industries. Additionally, Music Dealers is hiring ten full-time employees for its global team, specifically for its Chicago, London, New York and Los Angeles locations.

“Music Dealers experienced tremendous growth in 2014 and has cultivated partnerships with clients across various industries to maximize consumer engagement through the creative licensing of independent music,” said Kayne Grau, President of Music Dealers. “Our unique model has disrupted the music, advertising and media spaces in a powerful way, leading us to confidently predict an even stronger year in 2015.”

With the ten new hires, Music Dealers will expand by nearly 30% its size to total 40 employees across its seven offices, including New York, Los Angeles, London, New Orleans, Atlanta, Mexico City and Chicago. The majority of Music Dealers employees are based in its corporate headquarters in Chicago.

The ten new hires to the Music Dealers team will focus primarily on music licensing and business development. The company’s agency capabilities have vastly evolved to include music strategy, supervision and implementation, and its catalog of independent music has grown to nearly 20,000 artists and 200,000 authentic songs from across the world.

“Since forming Music Dealers in 2008, we have placed tens of thousands of top quality songs from independent artists in global advertising campaigns, blockbuster movies, popular TV series, major commercials and video games. As brands and entertainment companies increasingly recognize the value of music in deepening their connection with consumers and viewers, demand for our services continues to grow,” said Eric Sheinkop, CEO/Co-founder of Music Dealers. “Having a music identity is becoming as important to brands as their visual identity and places the brand in consumer conversations that extend way beyond an advertisement. This important industry development means that the growth potential for Music Dealers is tremendous. This requires that we grow our team to ensure that we can continue to provide our clients with the best independent artists for their campaigns, delivering bottom line results for both artists and clients.”
