2/1/2020 SYNCHAUDIO'S 2018 YEAR IN REVIEW

Doesn’t the year always feel like it flies by in retrospect? As January 1st

approaches, it’s easy enough to run with 2018’s accomplishments and let

the rest remain a blur of activity. However, at SynchAudio we like to use

the New Year as an opportunity for reflection. Our team has been hard at

work through 2018, expanding our presence as an innovator in sync and

artist representation globally. Track by track, we’ve watched our catalogue

develop and diversify. We’ve added captivating new artists from Australia,

Hungary, and Germany, while continuing to receive high profile music

placements on an international scale. 2018’s achievements haven’t come

without their share of late nights and long hours, but the artists we’ve

watched emerge have made it well worth the effort. Still, as we review

the past year, we understand that reflection is as much about embracing

the past as it is preparing for what’s to come.

IN THE NOW

Even in a fast-growing industry, that seemingly reinvents itself by the day,

there are certainly moments that feel like slow motion. It’s easy enough to

get lost in the endless stream of music at our fingertips, or the maze of

technology now available to help make it all accessible. Yet that same

complexity is part of what excites our team about the future. There are

fewer rules in today’s music industry, while there’s ample room for

experimentation to foster the current generation of creators. For a

company like SynchAudio, that prides itself on being artist-first, this is

music to our ears. We have the freedom to accommodate an artist’s

distinct strengths and needs more now than ever. As the music

business continues to re-shape itself, there’s an opportunity to build

an industry that is more sustainable for creators. At SynchAudio we

feel it is in everyone’s best interest to take that opportunity. Heading

into 2019, SynchAudio is proud to have the Artist at the core of our

past, present, and future.

It might not be a coincidence that time seems to move just a bit

quicker with each year of growth in the music business. Time flies by

when you’re having fun after all. As we look back at the host of

television and film placements, new music releases, and additions to

the SynchAudio family over 2018, we feel incredibly fortunate to have

spent our days catering to artists that continue to inspire us. We’d like

to thank all of the music supervisors that have listened to our catalogue,

placed our music, and helped support our roster over the past year. The

progress SynchAudio has made throughout 2018 would not be possible

without the incredible team of creators that we get to work with on a

daily basis. We can only look forward to our continued growth together

into the New Year.
