In 2015 we announced a global partnership with Unilever, the second biggest advertiser in the world, making us one of the biggest licensors of music, globally, and opening up opportunities for record labels, artists and production houses to reach new audiences. In February 2019 we joined forces with Songtradr, the largest music licensing platform in the world. The partnership, an industry first, will give a powerful, data-driven music solution for the brands and creative agencies that we work with worldwide who are looking to truly connect with audiences.
Since Dominic Caisley, Andy Stafford and Phil Lawlor founded Big Sync Music in 2013 we are proud to have been involved in campaigns for brands as diverse as AXE, Cornetto, Magnum, Dove, Johnnie Walker, Lipton, Amazon Prime, Marmite and Persil as well as ASDA, RyanAir and Samsung, Marmite, Knorr and Maille Mustard. We're also extremely proud to work with some of the most creative agencies in the world.
Big Sync’s involvement has ranged from searching for and licensing the perfect track for a finished film to fully supervising the music on a campaign from its inception. We have helped produce original compositions and worked closely with all contributors. Big Sync has championed and worked with emerging and independent artists such as Novo Amor and Summer Twins as well as established artists like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Guns N roses, Tiesto, David Guetta and Jack White.
