Needle Drop Co. was founded with a punk rock attitude and lofty goals. We believe that a socially conscious and artist-driven industry is the future of music and film. This is our way of joining the movement towards that goal.
We value music and artistry. As long-time members of our creative community, we want to empower musicians financially with a sustainable platform to pursue what they love. In turn our model is designed to benefit storytellers with easy access to great music.
When the perfect union of sound and picture happens the magic is undeniable. Matching the perfect song to a story elevates the art of both the filmmaker and the musician, like when Tyler turns to Marla, grasps her hand and says, “Everything will be fine” as the Pixies “Where is My Mind” sets the tone for an unsettled future. Undeniable. Magic.
We know you have a choice of sites that offer click-to-license music. We are determined to differentiate ourselves with adventurous music and intuitive, personal service. Our goal is to knock your socks off so you can turn around and knock the socks off your audience. It’s going to be one big chain of socks off if we do this right.
We’re adamant about making music licensing nearly effortless. We want to be the catalyst of your magic. We’re here to make this easier for you. No fine print. No surprise limitations.
Easy as pie.

Five percent of the profit from each license goes directly toward non-profit organizations in our community that enhance lives through music. The Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls builds girls’ self-esteem through music creation and performance. Likewise, Ethos is an organization that offers music lessons, classes, camps and workshops for students ages 2 and older. Music Cares provides a safety net of critical medical assistance for musicians in times of need.
We believe in the power of music and we want to hear yours.
