This year, the Musicbed Challenge had a different end goal than in years past. Creatives had an unprecedented chance to re-shape culture during a critical moment in history. So we asked them to use their talents for the greater good. To find a story within their communities, and to make a film that could make a difference.

Inspiration can play a big role in your work and it doesn’t always strike while you’re sitting at the editing bay or in the office. Whether you’re researching music or discovering new artists, we want to make that process as simple as possible. That’s why we’re excited to announce that Musicbed is now on Spotify.

The wait is over! We’re proud to announce Musicbed subcription. Now, for the first time, get unlimited music from the artists you know and love for one monthly or yearly fee. It’s a revolutionary take on the subscription model, giving filmmakers and creatives full access to real, emerging indie artists and leading composers. This is not a royalty-free production library. These are hundreds of chart-topping, nation-touring, genre-defying Musicbed artists at your fingertips.

International Justice Mission’s latest film, written and directed by Adam Joe, is a docu-narrative that tells the story of Liana (her real name is protected), a young girl who was sold into sex slavery by her own mother. In this case study, we’ll explore how Musicbed Custom Music Composer Chris Coleman took Adam’s direction to create a stunningly on-point score for this heart-wrenching and redemptive short film.

Rock ’n roll was born at Sun Records. The list of earth-shattering artists who got their start there is hard to believe: Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and so many others. As Collin Brace, VP of Sun Records, told us, “These guys defined not only a genre, but a generation.” In many ways, Sun Records and its artists paved the way for indie musicians and studios today. They were future minded. Open minded. They welcomed anyone with a guitar and a song. This is how they found legendary, mold-breaking artists like Johnny Cash. And it’s also how they ended up with over 8,000 master recordings from artists who never made it big, if it at all.
