First up from our new Synchblog series COVERStories, we chat with Dondrea Erauw from instinct entertainment about why she chose to place a cover song versus the original in an episode of The CW‘s Beauty and the Beast. Have a read here!
‘What Is Love’
The ‘Doug and Steve Butabi head nod’ takes a heartfelt turn in this lovely take on “What Is Love”. Featuring female vox filled with longing and heartbreak, this track would pair perfectly with a TV Spot or Promo.
Themes – Heartbreak, Naivety, Falling in OR out of love, Sadness, Separation
Coversion represents the master for sync. For licensing inquires please visit our website or contact JB.
Gabrielle Papillon – “Keep The Fire”
Released as the first single from Gabrielle Papillon’s latest album of the same name, ‘Keep The Fire’ is a force to be reckoned with. The track has been featured on Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds: Six Strings‘ playlist, CBC Music’s ‘Fall 2017 Preview: 21 Albums You Need to Hear‘ and getting tons more positive reviews online. Keep The Fire speaks to battling inner darkness, to finding strength within during moments of weakness – but overall (as Gab put it) ‘It’s an acknowledgment of being in a really bad place and then suddenly pushing back. Hard.’
Main Themes: Triumph, Fighting Back, Power, Inner Fire, Rebellion, Battling Personal Demons
Key Lyrics: “This is bad, I know it’s bad – there’s no way to keep the light on. This is bad, I know it’s bad – there’s no way to keep the fire on”
Dear Global Sync Community – we really got a hold on solving all sync-focused cover song needs
Today, as Coversion Music charges into North America, we are proud to announce our first official license for The Sync-Focused Covers Catalog — an Austrialian McDonald’s campaign. Known as Macca’s Down Under, we are elated that such a efficient and collaborative effort leads the sound of the campaign with two different featured spots to date.
So, how did this happen so quickly? Level Two Music from Australia found out about Rocking Horse Road’s newest member of the stable, Coversion, at our international debut at the Sync Summit in Spain last month. They quickly reached out and requested our version of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, “You Really Got A Hold on Me”.
We didn’t yet have this classic tune in our arsenal. So, they took a chance on us and we jumped into action producing the cover in less than 24 hours. Talk about reaching across the entire world in time and space! Wherever you are, whatever you need, Coversion is your go-to resource for covers.
To learn more about Coversion, check out our North American launch announcement. And, if you need any sync at all, reach out to Janesta Boudreau at email@example.com.

The Cambridge born R&B/Soul musician has recently joined the Rocking Horse Road roster and we couldn’t wait to share his music with you. The stand out track from his latest release ‘Nothing Beyond’ (which was mastered at Abbey Road) is Neighbours – it’s the anthem we need for this day and age. This track is provocative, incredibly relevant to the current world state of affairs and proves he really has something to say. The rest of album is filled with songs that are dark with a spark of hope, have big builds and feature Kyan’s raw & powerful vocals. Just ask Reggie Yates – the two became pals at a recent Amnesty International event. Reggie’s been singing his songs since (just kidding but we wouldn’t be surprised).
Main Themes: Immigration, Xenophobia, Confronting Stereotypes, Injustice, Closing Borders
Key Lyrics: “This room is the only thing we trust, because the TV says the world out there is still too dangerous. This room is our woods and prairie now. And though we’ve had to sacrifice our open skies just to keep the neighbours out – we’ve got to keep the neighbours out.”

This song screams adventure, travel and will inspire anyone to get out on the open road. So how else would we cap off our August other than with a song perfect for that last great summer hoorah! ‘The Great Escape’ comes from our artist Devarrow’s sophomore album with the same name – which was released in 2015.
Key Lyrics: Restless minds of adventurous kinds are gonna find… Whoa whoa it’s a great escape
Perfect For Themes Of: Girl Power, Independence, Feminism, Leading Ladies, Strength
This track is the Girls JUST wanna have fun for a new generation. Women who are fierce and proud and kick ass.
Key Lyrics: “I want to be the one to walk in the sun, oh girls they wanna have fun”
Do you ever hear a song and that makes you believe you can do anything? It’s so empowering and positive that you think ‘man, I’m awesome!’. Well, that’s what our featured track “Brave The Dark” from RHR artist Bird Passengers does for us. It’s catchy, uplifting and groovy – seriously, try not to break out into a dance when listnening to it. Bird Passengers have released 3 EPs and are currently located in Sacramento.
Key lyrics: Remember the sun that we lose in the weather. Remember we’ll always come back to the center. And after we live today, we can brave the dark
