Success Stories

Since our launch in 2018, the wonderful musicians on our site have achieved playlisting, gigs, radio play, interviews, signings and some have even found managers and publishing deals! Here are some of our highlights…

In collaboration with War Child, BASCA, The Hard Rock Café and Soundcheque we hosted a songwriting contest for an original anti-war song to raise awareness of the plight of children living in conflict.

Arts and human rights charity Art27
came to us looking for a theme for their new podcast and Matteo Galesi more than delivered with Come Together, perfecting the desired textures and sense of urgency, winning six months of Syncr Pro and helping to support the charity with great content. Listen to the podcasts here.

 

We’re always looking to get involved with people who do things differently, who think ahead of the curve, and most importantly have musicians best interests at heart. In 2018 we teamed up with Musicoin, a blockchain powered streaming platform, to find music “from any genre, hoping to hear music that blows us away”. We then awarded 10,000 Musicoins to three brilliant artists, who you can read more about here.

 

 

We teamed up with CloudBounce, an online service offering instant audio mastering. Like the Musicoin contest, we were looking for unsigned artists who truly had something exciting. The great Patiotic was our winner and he got a free ‘Infinity’ package worth $199.99.

 

 

 

The brilliant Amethysts got their track ‘Be There’ onto OMLSync’s compilation album UP Vol.1, earning them valuable exposure to a range of fans and industry professionals in sync and beyond.

 

 

 

 

We worked again with OML Sync to provide more artists for their second volume, including Hazy, St Daniel and Zkeletonz.

 

 

The OML Sync successes continue with Stella Novae earning a publishing deal for their track ‘Pressure On Me’.

Mari drew inspiration for ‘Always Yours’ from Kilig, a Philipino term referring to butterflies in one’s stomach.

 

Kate B’mand based her track ‘Keep It Moving’ on the Japanese philosophy of Shouganai, where worrying about the future will only deprive one of joy in the present.

On April 1st 2019, we worked with the UK Government on the Brexit anthem. In a statement Theresa May stated “We owe it to the people that put us here to put their priorities first. As we are focused on finding a way forward, we find the next obvious step is to host a contest for a national Brexit anthem.” Sisteray had an undeniable winner with ‘April Fools’, which won them a free year of Syncr Pro access!

 

Unfortunately, no-one submitted any yodelling to our 2020 Yodeller of the Year contest, meaning no-one won! How foolish do you all feel now?

 

For a brief in April 2021, we wanted to hear short, sharp “shhh”-like sounds for the spray noise of our new perfume StYNCR – The Smell of Success, the first perfume which works as an air freshener, anti-persperant, de-icer, hair spray, inhaler, shampoo and conditioner – all in one!

With influences ranging from Marvin Spray to Lynx Africa, Fabreze to Aerosolsmith, and even the spray somehow being aware of it being April fools, we decided to split the best spray noises between the two Marks: Parr and Matthews, who won six months of free Syncr Pro each.
