Sync Agent & Publishing
Brownout Studios is a sync agent and a music publisher. The
difference is subtle -- A sync agent represents music with the
premise of finding opportunities to make it work for film and
tv placements with no backend payouts due to us. A Publisher
does the same, but also has a stake in the backend payments as
the song gets played and distributed around the globe.
For the songs we write with our co-writers we will represent
them as a publisher. But we know we cannot possibly write
everything that our music partners need so we open up our
library to other writers to help them find opportunities as
Why do we bother representing music if we do not have a stake
in the backend -- because its the right thing to do for our
partners, and for songwriters everywhere. We prove as much as
possible that we care what happens after the song is done.
