Current Music is now an incredible resource for production music! Eleven production music libraries and a commercial EDM label offer over 20,000 pieces of music, including songs with vocals. Unlike many other music licensing companies, this is not a collection of "bedroom composers." The music consists largely of live musicians playing real instruments.

When a production company or advertiser wants to use a song, permission is required from the owner or entity that controls the copyright (the publisher) and a fee is determined. Once this is accomplished, the record label (the owner of the recording) must be contacted and another fee must be negotiated and paid in order to use the recording. This can be costly and time consuming. Current Music controls the publishing as well as the recordings of their catalogs to be able to provide "one stop" licenses. This convenience also keeps costs down.

Current Music offers their catalogs through an easy online search engine. By accessing the Search Engine, clients can type in a descriptive word, listen, make a playlist and download high quality WAV, AIFF and MP3 files. Hard drives with searchable music can also be provided. The company also offers music research experts at no additional cost.

Says Alicen Schneider, VP of Music Creative Services, NBCUniversal, Inc: "I've been hiring Maddie and her team for several years now. They are able to easily accommodate the fast pace and incredible demands that my projects present and provide me with trust and peace of mind, which is incredibly important!"
