Anyone know anything about SyncStories?

Title says it. Seems Cassie Lord is gone from 5Alarm and is now running SS as of Jan this year? As high profile as it might become, it seems pretty much on the downlow so far.....

Just signed 3 Albums that are not "live" yet. Soon. It was a long story. Promised back when everything was running thru 5Alarm - pre Ole nightmares.

Things move fast. Looks to have potential, but I'm curious if anyone has dealings with them.

@ Etch-A-Sketch ?? Anyone?

It seems like there is so much consolidation going on in production music. As in Etch's post in the other thread, many libraries are now owned by one of a handful of huge companies.

I wish I could help you but I have not had dealings with SS.

I'm very curious what you mean by the Ole nightmares for 5Alarm. What happened there?!

I spoke briefly with Cassie at a PMA event last month, and it seemed like she was really looking for “artist” driven material for SyncStories right now.

No, except if the song already generate some royalties. However, if you are a well-established producer, you may certainly negotiate a fee. Also, from my experience, they are quite long to release tracks. Though it doesn't prevent them to pitch your songs, some stuff I've signed with this company are not available after almost a year.

That doesn't sound promising. They only pay you something if your tracks are already making money, and some new tracks still aren't released a year after signing..

Robert Ott was a piece of work... I don't know the whole story, I only know it from the people I knew at MusicBox. Others might know more than me. I'll let others chime in here if they know the whole story...

All I'm willing to say is that accounting and overall direction left....ummm...something to be desired.

So D - any info on SyncStories? Where they've been. Where they are headed?

From my understanding, she decided last minute to open her own shop at the end of 2018. At one point, she was considering a high level job with a smaller (but established) library but decided to go on her own.

So I looked at the website and heard some music from @ drBill (good stuff by the way).

SyncStories has its own music, but represents other catalogs. I will have to get some music together and see if I could fit it any way.
