Examples of Our Work
Working with a music producer and session musicians can really bring your songs to life. The producer’s role is typically compared to that of a film director as they guide the majority of the processes involved in the creation of a record while fueling the artist’s creativity and helping them fulfill their vision. Working with a well-matched producer can be crucial to the sound of your record.

We have been enjoying our partnerships with production houses lately. This year the TribeSound crew was offered a gig to create music for Lego and Hot Wheels advertisements. We were honored to be the Beatles for the Yellow Submarine Lego kit!
Our two studios are equipped with industry standard pro audio gear as well as special pieces we’ve gathered over the years. We run a 32 channel Pro Tools HD system and we have a growing collection of analog outboard gear, microphones, instruments, amplifiers, and other toys.
Whether it be a full rock band or a corporate voice over client, we’ve got it covered.
Video production houses can sometimes use help in the audio department. At TribeSound, we’ll make sure your film sounds as good as it looks. In addition to dialog clean up, restoration, and audio mixing, we have a talented team of music professionals available for soundtrack composition. Our producers can work with you directly to refine your musical concepts or, if need be, we can provide a music director for your film.
Here is the trailer for our most recent soundtrack, Refugee: The Eritrean Exodus, featuring WaveRadio.
Publishing is a service we’re proud to provide here at TribeSound, but you may be wondering, what is publishing and why do I need it? Publishing, in short, is a way to get your music out into the public eye. For example, say you have a great explosive song that you believe would work well in an action movie; it would be our job to seek that type of placement for your work. Perhaps you have an entire catalogue worth of music that you would like us to represent, which would allow for more options and more chances to be on that next big commercial!
At this point, you’re probably wondering what it is we get out of this. We’re happy to inform you that at TribeSound, we offer non-exclusive publishing deals at a 50/50 split between you, the artist, and us. These royalties will be dispersed by a PRO (performance rights organization), of which there are three major companies – ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC. We recommend that you register ALL of the writers with one of these, preferably ASCAP, as it is what we use.
We’ve provided you with a link to ASCAP here.
We don’t stop when the music’s over! TribeSound continues to help our clients by offering guidance through this sometimes overwhelming and confusing industry. Not only do we supply our clients with top quality recordings, we also provide the necessary information for them to develop into a well organized and educated business in the music industry. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.
