Bob MairChatsworth, CA (April 5, 2011)–Independent music publisher and production music library Black Toast Music has announced some placements in film, TV and ad projects.
Black Toast CEO, owner and founder Bob Mair has placed a piece of instrumental jazz music, entitled “A Flapper On Broadway,” in the new, upcoming Warner Bros. comedy film, Arthur, starring Russell Brand. The song, performed by String Planet, is a fun, upbeat, 1920s-style jazz piece reminiscent of the music heard in many films by Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy.
In the area of advertising, Black Toast has contributed “Blue Ridge Mountain Home,” to a campaign promoting Dominos Pizza. The song is a traditional sounding instrumental bluegrass song perfect for creating the “down-home” feel of the farm featured in the commercial. The company also supplied music to a variety of internet and other TV commercials including those for Microsoft, Bally’s Fitness, and American Eagle Outfitters.
The new NBC comedy Friends With Benefits and the A&E show Breakout Kings have both already begun using Black Toast’s music for their first seasons, as has the new CBS cop drama, Blue Bloods, and two new Fox series, The Chicago Code and Raising Hope. “Black Toast is excited to play a part of all of these great new shows,” Mair said.
Additionally, HBO’s True Blood, Season Four, has once again come to Black Toast Music for songs from the company’s catalogue. The hit series has been integrating music from Black Toast since its launch, and has regularly included the company’s songs.
Other high profile HBO series also turn to Black Toast for their music needs, including Treme, and the animated hit, The Life and Times of Tim. Showtime’s Dexter also uses music from the Black Toast Music catalog on a regular basis.
Black Toast Music has also contributed the main title theme (composed by Bob Mair and David Feldstein) for the hit Nickelodeon animated series Glenn Martin, DDS (created by Michael Eisner’s company Tornante), which airs on Nick@Nite.
