Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - May 23, 2017 - After successfully launching the Portugal Invasion campaign in the beginning of May on the most listened to Internet radio station, idobi Network, 20 handpicked artists and bands chosen to participate under a unique ‘Radio & Sync’ partnership are now currently being pitched to the sync world. Headed by boutique music licensing collective, Leaky Sync, the startup has begun to present the 20-song playlist to key music supervisors, studios, trailer production companies, in addition to brands and their advertising agencies. With both companies forming the Radio & Sync relationship, it shows a great example of how Leaky Sync continues to create new opportunities on a global scale through its Discovery Boost music marketing program.
Over the last year, Leaky Sync has helped paved a path for indie artists and label communities in Portugal to receive international recognition. Through Discovery Boost, the program has already helped artists and labels gain exposure in a handful of opportunities ranging from hospitality to in-flight background music programming for their singles and music videos. During this time frame, Steve Bootland from The Portugal Music Scene, and Portugal territory A&R/Sync rep for Leaky Sync, brought in a healthy number of Portuguese artists and bands from multiple genres into the collective. This eventually established a Portugal Invasion, literally within the Leaky Sync catalog; eventually forming a solid media partnership with idobi Network.
Since the launch of Portugal Invasion, idobi Network has been interviewing artists such as Best Youth, Moullinex, The Glockenwise and Sequin, with more to come. In its outreach to the sync world, Leaky Sync has created a landing page presenting the curated Spotify playlist along with some of the campaign’s artwork and contact info that can be seen at http://leakysync.com/portugal-invasion.
“It’s been a huge pleasure partnering with idobi Network, whom we’ve been promoting artists to for close to a decade now.” Mentions Josh East, Dir. of Licensing/A&R, Leaky Sync. “Portugal might be a small country, though we’re working hard to shine some light on these gems.” Adds, East.
For sync licensing, in addition to the idobi Anthm targeted indie/indie rock genres, the collective has a wide range of artists and dedicated songwriters from around the world, including a legacy artist catalog ranging from Amalia Rodrigues to Celia Cruz, and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to Ravi Shankar. On the master-only recording side of the legacy catalog, Leaky Sync has exclusive pitching rights to live concert digitized audio tracks from the likes of Bueno Vista Social Club to Sade, as well as studio recordings from Herbie Hancock to KC and The Sunshine Band. The boutique has created a separate landing page for its legacy catalog with emended Spotify playlist that can be heard at http://leakysync.com/legacy-catalog.
To add to the company’s expansion plans, Leaky Sync will be rolling out more opportunities that will help their individual rights holders (artists, labels and publishers), as well as brand and media partners through a line of Label Services. Such services will offer creative imprint label management, worldwide digital distribution and a handful of digital marketing opt-ins. Its Discovery Boost program alone has major plans too, as it gears up to debut a Playlist Pitching service towards the end of June, allowing rights holders to participate in a monthly playlist delivery service aimed to pitch individual songs to targeted genre and mood based curators, indie and major playlist companies, and major streaming platform editorial departments.
For the remaining time in May, you can stream idobi Anthm live by going to ido.bi/anthm or downloading the idobi app for iOS. Additionally, you can visit the Portugal Invasion playlist on Spotify from this short link http://sptfy.com/invasion.
