What We Do

Hidden Shoal manages a growing catalogue of label released, curated tracks, all available for your music licensing needs. We provide a one-stop shop, handling both master and sync rights worldwide and can turn clearance requests around as quickly as your project requires. We work with large and small clients alike from independent productions to big scale projects across film, tv, games, web and more. We also license tracks for compilations and manage licensing for covers of Hidden Shoal songs. Our client list includes MTV, ABC (US), Billabong, Foxtel, BBC, Greenpoint Pictures, Turn Left Productions, Victorian Government, ABC (Australia) and many more.

The Music

This wonderful selection of music covers a broad spectrum of sounds and styles, from filmic neo-classical and expansive and emotive ambient instrumentals through to inventive indie and post-rock, electronica and all the spaces in-between. To give you an introductory feel for what we have to offer you can sample a small selection of sonic delights from the catalogue via our SoundCloud playlist to the right or stream releases via our artist’s profiles on this website.

Contact us for further information or with any licensing enquiries.
