Muzak Music is the world’s leading provider of music for businesses, serving more than 500,000 client locations. In support of its Heart & Soul Foundation, Muzak is seeking tracks from Sonicbids bands for its Metro (Indie Electronica), Destinations (Global Pop), and Nu Lounge (Lounge) programs.

Muzak's programs are played in big cities, small towns and everywhere in between. From top retail, restaurant and hospitality brands to the local mom-and-pops and convenience stores, Muzak reaches a broad and diverse base of listeners, providing a unique and powerful forum for people to experience music. Chances are you’ve shopped in a store or eaten at a restaurant today where Muzak's music was playing. With 100 million listeners per day, what better way to build familiarity for your music, not to mention generate an additional revenue stream?

Unlike other broadcast outlets, Muzak's program content isn’t driven primarily by charts, album sales and call-out research. The music lineup includes hundreds of "core" and custom programs, each designed to reflect the brand personality of a business and appeal to the lifestyle of their customers. This allows Muzak to use music from major and independent labels, as well as off-label artists who might be overlooked by radio altogether.

In an effort to raise funds to support the Muzak Heart & Soul Foundation mission of "redefining music education," Muzak is looking for emerging artists for the following programs:

    Muzak's proceeds from submissions will benefit the Muzak Heart and Soul Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to redefining and expanding the scope of music education.

    Heart & Soul is just that, the heart and soul of Muzak—the world’s largest business music provider.
