Santa Monica, CA (December 12, 2008)--Original music house Immediate Music has launched a new division, IM Bands, that will license music from "hot, contemporary bands," as well as from previously notable ones, for film, TV, videogame and TV commercial projects.
According to company co-founders/composers/producers Yoav Goren and Jeffrey Fayman, Immediate Music's director of operations, Emily Weber, will spearhead IM Bands. The new division has initially signed the bands Early States, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, The Underwater, Cheater, and Globus.
Said Weber, "Immediate Music is renowned for having the best trailer music in the industry. Since we like to think that we have the 'best ears' in the business, we have decided that now would be a good time to add some talented bands to our roster. The initial bands we have signed are all exciting, popular and rockin', and we will be making their songs available for licensing to our film, TV, videogame and advertising clients. We are also planning to sign a number of additional bands to our new division within the coming weeks and months."
Co-founded by Goren and Fayman in 1993, and currently celebrating its 15th anniversary year, Immediate Music is a preeminent supplier of original music for high profile, major studio motion picture trailers. Recent campaigns include the creation of original music for trailers promoting Hancock, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Horton Hears a Who, Hellboy 2, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and the custom score for Dragonball, as well as the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
