In late 2009, Valerie opened The Song Rep…. a music placement agency who, in a very short time, placed music in MTV, MTV Canada, FOX Sports and Slice Networks. Along with orchestral co ordination while at Mushroom for major film and TV projects, it was only a matter of time before the natural progression to Music Supervision became the focus of The Song Rep.
Valerie believes that great film and TV projects, advertising campaigns and video games all have one basic thing in common, the surreal emotional experience their audience feels with those well placed, Songs.

Our job is to make your experience as simple as possible. We work with a number of songwriters who own 100% of the songs.
We also have long standing relationships with a number of established music publishers so we will negotiate, do the paperwork and clear your license within your budget.
