Connect Your Music to and Speak Directly With Music Supervisors

Do you want to directly connect your music with leading music supervisors, get access to exclusive briefs and get feedback on your music? Of course you do, and we are here to help.

Our Supervisor Listening Sessions are a great way for you to connect with and get your music heard and get essential feedback from top music supervisors in TV, film, video games, ads, trailers, brands, apps, and the Internet.  Here’s how it works.

  1.  We hold a two-hour online listening session with a top music supervisor that’s strictly limited to twenty registrants. We do this to make sure all participants get heard, get to interact and get their music evaluated.
  2. Every participant will submit a song for evaluation for an active music search to us for listening and evaluation during the session by the guest music supervisor.
  3. Every participant will get a video archive of the session, and all Listening Session playlists will be posted on the SyncSummit website and promoted to our 40,000 person mailing list.

Every Sync Music Listening Session gets your music directly into the ears of a music supervisor who’ll get you valuable feedback – and you’ll make a valuable new connection.

And though we cannot guarantee that your music will be synced by our guest music supervisors for their productions, many past attendees of our listening sessions have had their music used by the over 200 music supervisors that have taken part in our listening sessions since 2017.

In these sessions, you get the advice from and connection to key decision makers will give you the invaluable feedback you can use to fine-tune your approach to music supervisors and their projects.

October 3: Sports Music Supervisor Jerry Davis

 


Please join us on October 3, at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern, with Music Supervisor Jerry Davis for what promises to be a fantastic Supervisor Listening Session.

Jerry Davis is a 38-year veteran of the music industry who served most recently as the head of music at FOX Sports for over 16 years. Jerry began his music career in college radio at the University of California, Berkeley but quickly advanced to serve as an independent publisher at Famous Music, marketing representative at Capitol Records, membership representative at ASCAP, and a founder of Poetic Groove / Virgin Music / Interscope Records before his lengthy tenure at FOX Sports. Jerry is considered one of the rare authorities on the niche genre of sports music. Few people understand the nuances of how to weave sports and music together to create dynamite sports productions like Jerry Davis. Beyond sports music, Jerry brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and relationships to whatever endeavor he chooses to engage.

While at FOX Sports, Jerry established the music department as an extension of the marketing and promotional wing of numerous record labels. Through this collaboration, many A-list, mainstream artists secured high-profile music placements in FOX Sports productions and events. These music placements include the Super Bowl, World Series, and All Star Game. Additionally, under Jerry’s leadership, many emerging artists were embraced by the music department. One of Jerry’s unique and impressive successes at Fox Sports was to envision and spearhead the development of a 168-volume collection of extremely high-quality music specially designed for sports that FOX Sports would also own. This visionary sports music library is called FOX Trax and has been a lucrative investment for Fox Sports generating significant revenues over the past 17 years.

Currently, along with serving as the Chief Strategy Officer at Epic Music LA, Jerry lectures at local universities (UCLA, USC, Long Beach State, Mt. Saint Mary’s College), music conservatories, and non-profit organisations promoting music education, philanthropy, and motivational speaking and music supervision.
