welcome to sprockets!
A sprocket is a piece of machinery that fits perfectly into the link of chain to keep it moving smoothly, and that’s exactly what we do. Sound is an integral piece of your project and we’ll be the perfect fit for whatever emotion you’re creating.
Will Edwards founded Sprockets in 1996, (24 years ago… yikes.) and still continues to lead the music publishing industry with passion and knowledge from experience. This experience has proven to make our client’s project run more smoothly as we know what to avoid and possible missteps, while excelling at having a fool proof methodology for publishing that’s in sync with our client’s needs.
What separates Sprockets from other major publishers such as Universal or Sony?
Sprockets' intentional lack of genre specialty.
We’re acquiring music from all over the world, including India, China, Italy, South Africa, and many others. Sprockets has a catalog that is more diverse than many of the big publishers who are typically genre and regionally focused.
We also have a few traditional songwriters that add another level of reach to Sprockets, and allows us to be a player in the mainstream music scene as well.
Sprockets continues to evolve its business model to position itself as an alternative to traditional publishing companies through an innovative approach of acquiring songs and building a comprehensive catalog.
