The band Misun has been working with Killer Tracks
Santa Monica, CA (August 7, 2014)—Production music company Killer Tracks is expanding and broadening the scope of its Artist Series, releasing a number of new tracks, including work from Portland alt-rockers Rare Monk and L.A.-based quartet Misun.
The new music can be purchased through iTunes and is also available for licensing and sync. Additionally, Killer Tracks will feature the artists on its YouTube channel and provide marketing support and promotional services. While the focus of the Artist Series is on licensing, the program also aims to boost career development and to raise the profiles of its featured artists among consumers.
“Our Artist Series is unique in the licensing industry,” says Anna Maria Hall, VP/head of music licensing, Killer Tracks. “These are real up-and-coming bands that are touring and playing club dates. It’s another way that we are extending our brand promise for having great, cutting-edge music.”
Killer Tracks launched its Artist Series in 2012 as a way to foster licensing deals for bands and other working artists. Since then, it has worked with a number of established artists including Rev Theory and Alex Band. The company is working with indie label B3SCI Records and music blog BlahBlahBlahScience to identify new talent.
Rare Monk, which has a budding reputation as a live act both in the U.S. and in the U.K., are purveyors of experimental rock with a psychedelic flavor, tight rhythms and layers of strings. The band describes it as “atmospheric space rock.” Misun produces bittersweet pop tunes anchored by singer Misun Wojcik’s soulful vocals. SPIN Magazine named the group one of its Best New Artists for July.
“We’re helping to develop bands by fronting recordings and getting the word out,” notes Carl Peel, VP of music production. “At the same time, we are offering our clients access to music and artists that are gaining traction in the world.”
