Introducing: Coversion Music

What is Coversion? RHR’s new baby offers a catalog of sync focused, curated covers – providing fresh versions of known tracks – customized for use in your / your client’s media. We own the masters 100%, we move quickly, can help make changes, and we can help you clear the publishing through our clearance partners in Europe and North America, if needed.
Check out our first track below.

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”

SYNC THEMED SONG OF THE WEEK:
Brave The Dark

“Brave The Dark”
Perfect for themes of: Fortitude, Courage, Supporting One Another, Strength

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 lyricsRemember 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

SYNC THEMED SONG OF THE WEEK:
CROWNS

“I Lost The Crown”

Perfect for themes of: betrayal, heartbreak and loss of control or power

This week we have, for you, an exclusive first listen of “I Lost The Crown” by RHR artist The Mearielles. Think Game of Thrones meets Gossip Girl (Queen B, anyone?) meets The Royals. It’s sassy, dramatic and damn catchy. These ladies are our own secret little super group (a clue is in the name), but we’ll leave it at that.

Key lyrics“I was in the pocket but I couldn’t lock it down. Said I’d never wait, lost the faith and lost the crown. I was in the running, didn’t see it coming or hear a sound – I lost the crown. I lost the crown.”

 

SYNC THEMED SONG OF THE WEEK:
COMMUNITY

“Where Everybody Knows Your Name”

Perfect for themes of: friendship, home, family, familiarity, comfort

Hi friends and welcome to our very first sync themed song newsletter – which will be coming to your inbox every 3 weeks or so. Let’s not waste time dilly-dallying and get right to the good stuff. This week we’re sending you ‘Where Everybody Knows Your Name’ (Cheers, anyone?) by Canadian Dylan Menzie. It perfectly envelops how it feels to hangout with the ones you love and to be surrounded by that comfortable, familiar warmth of home. Menzie’s unique & powerful voice is unmistakable – his track ‘Kenya’ can currently be heard on Destination Canada’s latest promo vid.

Key lyrics: “I’ve been away such a long, long time but I’ll always call this place home. And if they ask you won’t you tell them. If they ask you won’t you say – I’m going to the place where everybody knows your name”

 

We have some very, very, very exciting news to share.. RHR is expecting and our new baby, Coversion Music, will be brought into the world at the September edition of London Sync Sessions (which is held in Barcelona this year, hello!). Coversion is a sync focused covers catalogue run by team of experienced music supervisors and industry professionals. We can’t wait to share this with you come September, but in the meantime you can follow Coversion on social media and subscribe to our newsletter for updates at : https://www.coversionmusic.com/

 

 


No one does whirlwind quite like RHR (looking at you JB), and we’re about to take off on a couple very exciting trips! TO friends and friends visiting, we will be at CMW tomorrow to Sunday morning – get at us if you haven’t done so already:) we love grabbing food and drinks. We will also be in Saint John for East Coast Music Week – catching up with friends, attending conference sessions and of course, enjoying the evening’s festivities.

Hope to see new and old friends alike over the coming week!

Oh, right – that Coversion logo? 🙂 That’s some news for another day.

See ya!


Our latest addition to the RHR team brings Rolling Stone recognized pop artist Henry Hall on board! Hall’s music is fun, catchy and clever drawing humour from his own personal experiences and doesn’t shy away from belting it out. Hall’s inherent quirkiness fits right in with us at Rocking Horse Road and we’re stoked to have such a cool industry shaker on board. He attributes a lot of his sound to the likes of The Weeknd and Paul McCartney, who like Hall are not afraid to sing in a higher octave. Are we ever thankful for that! He has already scored a really cool sync – which we’re not sure we can talk about yet, so we’re just going to keep you on your toes until we’re ready to announce.

Welcome to the fam Henry – we’re happy to have you!

Check out Hall’s video for his song “Company” off his latest EP My Friends Don’t Like Me below!

“As one upbeat, off-kilter track bleeds into another, there’s a sense of unabashed, mood-lifting, retro goodness that feels boldly infectious” – Lauren McKinney, The Wild Honey Pie
