Sunset is a premier Indy labels that has managed to sign music over the last year and half, that cater to every style and format needed for placement in a film, TV and Ad.

All of these companies now have full access of the tracks from a vast music catalogue, with the opportunity to license these songs to film, television, and advertising companies in need of music. Don Lichterman, the head of the Sunset Music Publishing Company set his label group up with labels from all genres for this ability to license his catalog out to film, TV and Ad Companies. "We have a catalog of recorded music to work that is now spread out over six (6) different labels with every style, genre and format, " says Lichterman about his Sunset label group, "which is appealing to production companies."

Lichterman adds that he also has "the ability to work well within every budget."

Sunset has been setting these companies up with its' entire catalog of music over the last month. The label is also not stopping at these deals. Lichterman says they are now looking into deals to get the catalog out to more of these types of licensing companies. "We are now looking into working with other companies in this same way." Companies like Telepictures Music, DMX, Pravda Music, Konsonant, LaLa Music are all on the label heads radar and he states that "we also want to get into the in flight radio programs that I listen to when I use the airlines to travel."

Throughout the remainder of this year and into 2009 Sunset's catalog of recorded music will be worked out to these other ancillary markets for the first time since starting to sign new music. Sunset will now be marketed directly to top studios, film companies, advertising agencies and television programs in the hope of placement of their music. And, with the Music and Song Catalog Company and its online digital service, they have a network of top advertisers that have signed up to be included in that system.

Don Lichterman says, "In the day and age where everything is built on search engines, it is no different within the licensing world." "We have Steve Tilleli and Ric Laue signed to our classical label and we have Capt. Crunk and Blackwell signed to the Sunset Urban label. Tropical Records has started to sign new world music acts to add to the Stondie (Caribbean) and Cryout (Reggae) roster; we have Sunset Jazz Recordings for jazz music and Sunset records has the Federal Moguls, Blackbird, Grayscale, The New Surreal, Richtaste, TenPenny Joke and Zamza which all have their very own alternative and pop rock style." Sunset spread its label group thin for the purpose of licensing out its catalog of recorded music.
