NEW YORK, NY, November 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Sha-La Music, Inc.
announces a new Publishing/Licensing Agreement with up-and-coming powerhouse Indie, Music of The Sea, Inc.
The new deal will have Music of The Sea representing Sha-La's catalog, which includes Writer/Producer Robert Allen
, as well as Singer/Songwriter Bruce Engler
, US rockers The Discontent
and UK rockers The Glass Hearts
. Allen, who is also the President of artist-driven Sha-La, is the man behind Americana/Roots Rocker DownTown Mystic
and has been establishing a successful track record with sync licensing his music to TV.
, CEO/Founder of Music of The Sea
issued a statement, "I'm very excited to be representing and working with Sha-La Music's
Catalog and Robert Allen
, who always brings a high degree of quality to his music and productions. It's my pleasure being able to give access to Sha-La's catalog to all of my sync partners and I look forward to a very successful partnership."
Music of The Sea
has quickly become one of the leading Indie Publishers in the Music Industry, amassing a catalog of over 20,000
songs in the past few years. The Sha-La Music
catalog will be immediately included in MOTS's vast network of Sync partners, which includes one of the leading Advertising Agencies in the world--the Omnicom Group
, as well as CBS Television
and Getty Images
, among others.
The deal between the 2 companies has its roots in a sync licensing deal that Eddie did for the short lived Warner Bros.
TV show, The Carrie Diaries
. Eddie successfully placed 3
of Robert's songs with the show's Music Supervisor, Alexandra Patsavas
of Chop Shop Music
, one of the top music supervisors in LA. Robert comments, "I met Eddie 4 years ago in Cannes at Midem
and we became fast friends. We talked about doing something together, and one day, Eddie sent me an email asking if I had any songs for this TV show. I sent him a few things and about a week later he called and said we got it! That was the first time we got to work together and he's been after me ever since-lol."
is Robert's alter-ego and indie artist project that features some top musicians like the RnR Hall of Fame rhythm section of Max Weinberg
and Garry Tallent
from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band
, as well as Steve Holley
and Paul Page
, the rhythm section for Ian Hunter's Rant Band
. DownTown Mystic
has been gaining fans through successful Radio Airplay, as well as critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Sha-La released the self-titled DownTown Mystic
album last year, which stayed on the Americana Music Assn. Radio Charts
consecutive weeks. The album yielded the hit single Way To Know
(featuring Max & Garry), which got airplay on over 10,000
stations around the world and went to #1
on the Roots Music Report Alt/Rock Song Chart
, with the album going to #3
on the RMR Alt/Rock Album Chart
Besides the impressive world-wide radio play for DownTown Mystic
, Robert has also been building a successful sync licensing career with music placed on TV shows like NBC/Universal's The Voice
, the WB's Carrie Diaries
, The History Channel's American Pickers
and a host of other shows on MTV
and WE TV
. Most recently, Robert has 2 DownTown Mystic
tracks featured in a web video promoting Dr. Pepper
and 8-time Female Wrestling Champ/Country Singer, Mickie James
. Next year Robert will have DownTown Mystic
music in an upcoming Indie film called From Point A to Point B
that's already receiving a good deal of buzz in Hollywood.
Unlike writing for DownTown Mystic, Robert says, "I like to create pieces of music I call 'soundscapes'
because it's very freeing not having to define a piece of music by writing lyrics for it or keeping it in a certain genre." As the President of Sha-La Music, Inc.
, Robert feels the timing is right for joining forces with Eddie and Music of The Sea
. "I've been a big fan of Eddie's ever since I met him and he's been a big supporter of mine. He's without a doubt the hardest working man in the biz and I'm looking forward to our collaboration."
