Distributor lands Netflix trailer
With such a rich and diverse catalog, CD Baby has a variety of songs that make for excellent sync placements. However, CD Baby doesn’t receive instrumentals from its artists when they upload their music, which means they are regularly having to chase down assets from artists when a sync opportunity arises. “Sometimes we can get instrumentals from the artists, but other times it’s crickets,” says the company’s sync manager, Brett Byrd. Byrd regularly uses AudioShake for pitching, and has used the platform for everything from 1970s songs to contemporary tracks. One of Byrd’s successes with AudioShake is El Micha’s “No Hagas Planes,” which landed in a Netflix trailer for Cocaine Cowboys and uses an instrumental Byrd created on AudioShake.
