About Epidemic Sound

In barely five years, Epidemic Sound has become one of the world’s leading sources of high-quality production music. Epidemic Sound solves an age-old problem for creators of visual content - namely securing the rights to use professional-quality music and soundtracks to accompany their productions and give their projects an additional edge and punch.

Everyone wins

Epidemic Sound’s approach benefits both the musicians as well as the producers who use their work. Musicians gain access to a global marketplace where they are paid fairly for their work, and their content is exposed to the widest possible audience. Producers benefit from a streamlined process of obtaining and using music, which frees them to focus on the creative process.

No unnecessary fees

Epidemic Sound was founded by a team of award-winning Swedish music, TV and Internet entrepreneurs, and has built the world’s largest library of content where 100% of all rights are included in the subscription fee. That means customers can subscribe for unlimited use - no need to keep paying additional royalty fees for different projects - or they can license tracks by the second. All arrangements include music clearance on all platforms, worldwide, for all time. The library currently includes over 25,000 high-quality tracks, and is growing all the time.

New technology demands a new approach

Uniquely, all subscription and licensing arrangements also include public performance rights, as Epidemic Sound owns all of its music, and customers do not need to pay additional royalty fees to music collection societies. As content creation increasingly moves toward online and streamed platforms, it’s easy to see why Epidemic Sound is now the largest production music supplier to TV producers in the Nordics.
