Licensing for Film, TV, Video Games, Commissions

Welcome to my Sync-Licensing page. There is a great variety of original music here, inspired by many countries and traditions. I hope you enjoy the music and find the right fit for your project.

My music was used in Woody Allen’s “Vicki Cristina Barcelona” and I recently recorded a custom project on harp-guitar for a video game in L.A. The music on this page is pre-cleared for one-stop licensing. Unless otherwise noted, all songs are composed and recorded by me and I control 100% of the sync and master. I’m looking forward to the prospect of working with you!
