Direct Licensed Music

Pay the artists directly

Direct License Music

If you are looking for great music with no associations to other brands or products, if you would like to hear quality, original music that is not controlled by multi-national record labels then this is the music for you.

With the Sound Marketing Direct Licensed Music Service all tracks played are logged automatically and the artist paid for each play; without the PRS and PPL taking an administration charge. Unlike with the performing rights bodies the artists get a clear record of what tracks were played and when, so they can be confident they are getting exactly what they deserve.

Be part of this music revolution!

With the PRS and PPL licensing model it is a long and very arduous route for the pounds to find their way back to artists and performers. Often musicians are not aware that their music is being played in the retail locations paying to broadcast it.

  • Set your goal and expectations for background music
  • We help you choose the correct music profiles to play
  • Set play schedules for the music
  • Decide on any messaging you require to play with the music
