How did NeedaJingle Evolve?

NeedaJingle was developed after much experience producing music and sound in and around the advertising, film & television industries.

Music is a subjective topic. It is often difficult to explain in words what kind of music you are looking for. Even musicians find it hard to analyse and discuss their music. But briefing a musician on what kind of track your have in mind for your next project can be a nightmare. We need to talk about style, mood, feel, instrumentation, pace, influences, maybe there's a vocal, how shall it be voiced? The list goes on...

In a traditional agency pitch environment, even with all care taken to articulate the brief as clearly as possible, no two submissions will ever be the same. Composers are influenced by their own style, instrumental skills, production techniques, culture and past experience.

Having only one composer pitch on a project will provide only one take on the brief. You can refine it for months, but each and every version is still going to be limited by the experience of that one composer. Then there's headache of locked-in costs, looming deadlines and the risk of unknown outcomes. 

So what's the solution?

NeedaJingle's unique music crowdsourcing model allows you to brief hundreds or even thousands of composers from all around the world.

Artist Royalty Information

An essential part of an Artist's income are the royalties that composers receive when their music is publically performed or broadcast. These royalties are generally filtered back through music end-users such as fitness centres, cinemas, music venues, television & radio stations and other businesses. Royalties are not an additional cost to the agency or production house.

We respect our Artist's right to these royalties where available and request that our Clients take the time to report on the usage of all music sourced through NeedaJingle; after all it doesn't cost anything and will only take a couple of minutes to fill out the form.

What's more, we’re not a publisher and do not take a cut of our Artist's royalties. Any and all royalties that may occur from the public performance or broadcast of music sourced through NeedaJingle should be directed to the Artist or a suitable person acting in their interest.

If an Artist is talented enough to win one of our music contests, we reckon they deserve their royalties!
