Soho Production Music

Stock Music International has expanded its production music offering with the addition of 3 exciting new UK labels which pride themselves on quality and creativity.

A piece of history with Bosworth

With a history spanning over 125 years, Bosworth is one of the oldest names in library music. This rich resource began with sheet music, wax cylinders, sound-on-film and through the analogue recording era. Heavily sampled, the catalogue boasts exceptional and unique newsreel, orchestral, classic cinema and kitsch styles. Highly targeted requests and briefings from UK broadcasters and production companies have inspired an on-going music slate of regular new releases covering popular themes such as Kids TV, Nordic Noir, Sound Design, Fantasy and Drama. The Bosworth Archive collection will take you back into time. There is simply nothing quite like the sound of an LP and the music of the vinyl era. In the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s no library created music quite like the Bosworth Archive that three decades later ended up being sampled by DJs selling multi million units around the world. Cult classics, 1960s soul-jazz and 1970s disco hit the dance floors. In fact, Bosworth provided the cream of the underground library sessions, so for cool kitsch junkies and vinyl vultures – spool a reel and get digging!

What sets the Soho libraries apart?

The spirit of Soho, the most famous and colourful district in London – the old versus new architecture, the quirky, eclectic mix of restaurants, and the characters themselves from noted historical figures, such as Mozart and Karl Marx – is the inspiration for this music library.

Soho is a vibrant, unique and eccentric label, featuring albums with a broad mix of styles and artists, with each track crafted for easy syncing across all media.

The Soho Archive collection is a time capsule of historical recordings, where you can unearth thousands of tracks which helped define and score the past century. With everything from wartime to the golden age of Hollywood, some spooky 60s sci-fi and classic cartoons, this archive collection is a fantastic source of high quality, authentic historical music.

Music Submissions Guidelines

If you would like to submit your music for consideration for our music catalogue please pay attention to the following:

  • Do not call or email asking if it is okay to send music, we listen to everything that comes across our desk. Sometimes this takes a while, so please allow four to six weeks before querying if your music has been received and reviewed.
  • Our core focus is high-quality production music. If you care enough about your music that you want other people to pay attention to it, you need to make sure it stands out. We love new and exciting music. For your music to stand a better chance to get noticed, make sure you send us finished tracks NOT demos, unless they are brain-meltingly good.
  • You must own and control 100% of the copyright in both the composition and master recording. Sound-alikes and samples are not permitted.
  • We do not accept any music on a non-­exclusive basis. We act as the exclusive music publisher for the compositions in our library, promoting and representing them to our clients worldwide through a network of sub publishers.
  • Make sure you are not under an exclusive agreement with another publisher.
  • Please do NOT email mp3s as they will be deleted.
  • Please submit a streaming link ONLY for 5-8 songs using our contact form and any other info that you think is pertinent.

And last but not least: here is something to remember: the music library business is a long term journey. Chances are you will not become an overnight millionaire! Music libraries are all about growing a steady stream of long term income. Compare it to rolling a snowball, but a snowball that sometimes rolls quickly, sometimes slowly. Quick or slow, it still grows.

We know it is not a great sales pitch but it is the reality of the business. And it says something about the Stock Music philosophy: we don’t over-sell or make huge promises to you. We just work hard, do our utmost best and with that attitude we hope you will stay and grow with us.
