Music and audio agency Elias Arts is rebranding as Elias Music. Celebrating 40 years working in music and sound for brands, the company is launching a new website and is introducing Elias Indie, a new platform to connect brands with emerging artists.
Founded by composer and producer Jonathan Elias, Elias Music is known for its work in sonic branding and for its ability to bring stories to life through music. It has provided musical needs for many brands, including Mercedes-Benz, Nike, American Express, Liberty Mutual, Honda, Google, Farmers Insurance and Apple. Services range from custom scoring for advertising, audio branding and sound design to an extensive catalog of premium, precomposed tracks.
“Music and sound have never been more important in helping define a brand’s aesthetic,” says Elias, who is the chief creative officer for Elias Music. “With decades of experience and new resources from the Universal Music family, our capabilities to exceed the needs of brands across the entire musical spectrum are what make the new Elias Music so exciting.”
The new Elias Music website provides access to the Elias catalog. The site also features a downloadable extension for Adobe Premiere Pro that can be used to access the catalog — spanning more than 10,000 tracks — without having to leave the Adobe tools.
Elias Indie is the company’s new platform for emerging artists whose work is available for one-stop licensing. Designed for brands seeking music, the new offering includes a lineup of up-and-coming artists across a broad range of contemporary genres. To help meet specific requirements of branding, the Elias creative team works with experienced recording industry A&Rs to hand-pick artists for the platform. A selection of music is available for streaming from the website.
