The music licensing community was intrigued by the Dec. 21st launch of Songview, a new one-stop platform presented by performing rights organizations ASCAP and BMI combining both databases for easier searchability. Superior's President/Founder Mara Kuge reviewed the new platform recently for Variety. Read the review here.
While we're sad to see the end of Showtime's long-running Shameless, we hope you've gotten to check out the cool music they've used in their final season. A recent episode featured the upbeat "Same Soul," co-written by Superior's Lauren Ruth Ward.
The Muffs' "A Lovely Day Boo Hoo" is featured in Michael Walker's new film, Paint. The film follows the lives of several young NYC artists as they struggle to break into the business and sell their first paintings, and is currently on VOD.
The FOX police action show LA's Finest recently returned for its second season. Featured in the mix is Mocean Worker's "My Own Little World" featuring Lyrics Born.
Don't be fooled! SISTERS were the featured artist on MTV's "Catfish," with their track "We Can Get Together" heard on a recent episode. Catfish Season 8 is currently airing on MTV.
Has Netflix's "Trinkets" stolen your heart? Season 2 is now available for streaming, which features some cool tunes from Superior writers: Lauren Ruth Ward's "Blue Collar Sex Kitten," Miguel Mendez's "Too Drunk to Breathe" and SISTERS "Sleepy Eyes (The Seshen Remix)".
You may not need your babysitter right now, but you certainly should be part of Netflix's "The Baby-Sitters' Club." Congratulations to the Vamps, a collaboration between Superior's Alex Gimeno (Ursula 1000) and the B-52's Fred Schneider, whose "Vampire Vamp" appears in the series.
