FlySongs will specialize in the music of Texas, Tennessee and Louisiana and represent it to the film and television industry. The new company will actively seek to place compositions in movies, television specials, soundtracks, primetime and cable series, video releases, and commercials.
“We have spent our energies developing deep production and film industry contacts,” says company founder Sandra Fox. “We have established solid relationships in Hollywood, and in the national film community, and are using those connections to expand and enhance this music we love. There is a wealth of opportunity, but success demands immediate response. Filmmakers very often phone to say they need a specific type song for a project and, especially when dealing with television, they need it now! Our job is to quickly and expertly provide those songs.”
Fox spent over 25 years working in the publishing business including 15 years with MCA Nashville Publishing, plus time with EMI-Tower Street, Mercury Records, Big Picture Entertainment and others.
“I was fortunate to have been mentored by two of the best in the business, Gary Smith and Keith Stegall,” says Fox. “The next step for me was a logical one, to open my own company and to represent the best songs available. I was born in Louisiana, raised in Texas and learned about the music industry in Tennessee. That’s where FlySongs will look for the music we present to filmmakers.”
FlySongs will host a launch party on Thursday Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at Nashville’s Blue Bar, 1911 Broadway. [email protected]
