About Us

Rumblefish is a pioneer in music licensing and has been a trusted provider of music for top TV shows, films, ad agencies and video games for over a decade. The company has always made artists and labels its priority, and has paid millions in royalties to its members for the licensed use of their music. Rumblefish launched the Music Licensing Store in 2006, dubbed "an iTunes for Corporate America" (CNBC). It was the world’s first online resource for 100 percent copyright-cleared music for businesses. In 2008 the company struck a landmark licensing deal with YouTube and in the summer of 2010 deepened that relationship with the launch of Friendly Music, a website where consumers can license soundtracks. The company now boasts the world’s largest music catalog for social media and diverse clientele including Animoto, Virtual Active, Amazon Studios, Kaiser Permanente and Google among others.
