Please note, we get a lot of requests asking to use our music for free or little cost. We are unlikely to be able to respond to these. Our sincere apologies in advance. We firmly believe in compensating artists for their efforts. To clear a piece of music often can involve speaking to artists, managers, lawyers, publishers, label representatives, A&R teams and others. This is often not a simple task. We then need to prepare, draft, agree and finalize contracts and arrange payments.
