Welcome to License Your Music!

For those I have not met, I'm Jody Friedman, and for a long time, I was doing everything in my power to achieve my dream of "making it" in the music industry.  In my mind, that meant being a live performing / touring artist, signed to a recording contract and it was a struggle.  I had a job that I enjoyed, BUT I was never creatively fulfilled.  

That all changed when I did my first music license. My first license was for a theme song on CNN's "Nancy Grace" and it earned $30,000 in royalties in one quarter!

Until that moment, I had no idea that I could MAKE GOOD MONEY from my songs which is where my passion truly lives - in songwriting and creating.

I quit my job in NY and moved to Los Angeles, where I set up my music licensing company and committed myself wholeheartedly to landing more licenses, meeting with and getting to know the Music Supervisors around town.

In 2008, we landed a placement in True Blood Season 2, and it spiraled from there.  Over the next four years, MY INCOME DOUBLED EVERY YEAR. 

Since that time I've secured numerous SIX FIGURE LICENSES and have become a skilled, established Music Licensing entrepreneur, with over 10,000 songs licensed for all sorts of media. 

I've found success as a Music Publisher, Music Supervisor, Record Label, Producer, Songwriter & Composer.  

The real dream was having “CREATIVE FREEDOM" and I've achieved just that, and can help YOU do the same by teaching you everything I know about Music Licensing while approaching your career through my method of thinking called  E.L.E.V.A.T.E.™

Some of my Clients and Projects I've worked on are listed below.

It worked for me and I believe with hard work it can work for you!
