SHOUT! FACTORY ENTERS UNIQUE VENTURE WITH MUSIC MARKETING FIRM NATURAL ENERGY LAB
LOS ANGELES, CA – Music and DVD entertainment label Shout! Factory has announced a new, exclusive agreement with TV and film music marketing company Natural Energy Lab. The six year old independent company, helmed by former music publishing executive Danny Benair, will represent Shout! Factory’s growing music catalog in securing placement in theatrical films, made-for-television feature films, television series and commercials.
Benair’s proven success record with multiple song placements in top network series such as “The O.C.” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” and the worldwide advertising campaigns of Mini Cooper and Motorola, has made Natural Energy Lab one of the most sought-after music placement agencies. Benair most recently secured both the title and end credit placements of songs from artists Steven McDonald and The 88 in Paramount’s upcoming romantic comedy Failure To Launch. As well as its existing catalog, Natural Energy Lab will now represent music from Shout! Factory artists Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Solomon Burke, William Shatner and the Marshall Tucker Band, among others.
Shout! Factory COO Bob Emmer remarked, “It is a unique business arrangement that brings together the entrepreneurial spirit that has defined these two great independent companies. Knowing that a partner as successful as Danny is focusing his resources and expertise on the Shout! Factory catalog is truly gratifying.”
Benair commented, “I am very honored to be partnering up with a company that has new ideas, and where the old rules are thrown out the window! We will be making music placement a very important key to reacquainting people to classic or obscure music, as well as brand new artists, yet to be household names.”
