Ep. 42 With Edwin Cox from West One Music Group
West One Music Group’s setup might well be the blueprint of the independent production music publisher of the future. What started as a British label label working traditionally with sub-publishers around the world arguably changed into the first hybrid independent global production music publisher. Besides having their own offices in London, Munich, Paris, Sydney, Dublin, Bangkok, Hong Kong, New York and Los Angeles they still rely heavily on local sub-publishers. What was the reason for starting their own offices in certain territories? And why do they feel they still need local sub-publishers in other territories? Ferry van Beek and Simon Webb talk with Edwin Cox, Global CEO of West One Music Group. Interested in his views on the current state of the production music industry? Check out this new episode of Synchronized!

Our guest in this episode, Art Munson, is the founder and owner of musiclibraryreport.com. This long-running website is the ‘Trust Pilot’ of library music: A forum for composers to share views on different libraries, and library practices. Art Munson’s enthusiasm for NFT’s, Crypto currency, Artificial Intelligence, and all things at the cutting edge of production music, is infectious. In a fascinating episode, this senior statesman of library music talks about all this and more:  How he graduated from playing guitar with Dick Dale and The Deltones to becoming a guru of our business? The joys, for a composer, of non-exclusivity. The merits of releasing tracks on micro-stock websites? How the subscription models of the new wave of disruptors are disrupting the older royalty-free disruptors. What it's like being an octogenarian in the library world.

Bonus Ep. 001 With Niklas Brantberg from Epidemic Sound
This time, in a bonus episode, we feature Epidemic Sound. Epidemic has been mentioned more times in our podcast than any other library label. And is without doubt, with a market capitalization of $1.4 billion, the major library disruptor of our time. So who are these ‘bad boys’ of library? What are their intentions? The Epidemic business model is certainly different, and Niklas Brantberg, head of music, opens the lid on this huge company. In a candid interview, Niklas reveals (amongst many other things) the way Epidemic differs from other libraries in its relationship with both its users and its composers, how it started, what its composers earn, how it relates to the infrastructure of conventional libraries, and also gives some clues as to how best to compete with this behemoth. It’s a fantastic interview, and a must-listen for any library owner or composer who wants to look deeper into the present and near-future of our business. Love it, or loathe it, Epidemic is here to stay!

Ep. 32 With Andy Hill from I Like Music (2)
In this first episode of 2022, Andy Hill, CEO of I Like Music, is back as our guest on Synchronized! And, of huge importance to those publishers operating in the UK, he talks about the conclusion of I Like Music's contract with the BBC, and what ILM has in store for us next. Andy looks back at how Napster slashed the profitability of the record companies in the 90’s. He predicts the same will happen to the production music labels in the near future if they don’t act on the lessons learned by the record companies. His solution? A new platform to service clients who are now moving to other worldwide platforms like Epidemic Music. Participating production music labels will not only share in the revenues, but also become equity holders in this new platform. He strongly suggests that production music label owners should act now. Want to know how? Begin by listening to this new episode!  And "Don't just kick the can down the road!"
