VOCALISTS

SAG-AFTRA also has a Video Game Agreement applicable to the use of vocalists in music for video games. This agreement has specific terms and conditions that our vocal team would be happy to walk you through. 

SOUND RECORDINGS/ALBUMS

Historically, the use of top level musicians on recording projects is what enhances and separates the best recordings from all others.  The projects we have worked on utilize the very best, unique one of a kind musicians.  This is a perfect solution for Independent record producers or artists looking to have the very best session musicians on their project. Rates for these options start as low as $60 per hour per musician.

Sessions we have worked on include those for Pharrell Williams, Lana Del Rey,  Christina Perri “A Thousand Years”, Melody Gardot “The Absence”, Seth MacFarlane “Music is Better Than Words”, Josh Groban “Illuminations”, Elizaveta, All American Rejects, Papa Roach, Hoobastank, Adam Lambert, Dianne Reeves’ “Good Night, and Good Luck” and the weekly studio recordings for NBC’s The Voice and Lionsgate’s Nashville to name just a few.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

Encompass Music Partners has taken great pride in the live concert and theatrical stage events that they have helped contract and coordinate over the past several years.

ON-CAMERA/SIDELINING

Sidelining (or “mouthing” when applied to SAG/AFTRA Singers) refers to musicians or singers on screen simulating playing or singing to a pre-recorded track for either motion picture or television. The believability on camera of true trained musicians or singers “playing” their instruments and looking authentic is something Encompass Music Partners has taken pride in for over a two decades.

We have worked alongside many great studios and directors to give their films an authenticity and realism that adds to the overall quality of the visuals and emotions of the scenes that involve these talented musicians and singers. We take pride in the fact that we work side by side with production to “cast” the perfect musician or singer that the director and production want. We submit photos of all candidates, we coordinate the use and rentals of authentic instruments and provide the sheet music that matches the pre-recorded track the musicians or singers mime to in order to capture a breathtaking and realistic performance.We can even coordinate the recording, production and delivery of all specific Pre-Record elements for on set playback.

A few of our past projects include: A Star is Born, La La Land, Love and Mercy, Get On Up, Jersey Boys, Gangster Squad, Water For Elephants, The Soloist, Get Smart, Transformers: Dark of The Moon, LA Noir, I Love You Man, A Thousand Words, 13 Reasons Why, The Mentalist, The Cape, $#*! My Dad Says, and Hart of Dixie to name just a few.

DEMO SESSIONS

Encompass Music Partners has created an on-going series of Demo Sessions that allow composers of various experience levels to record their music with a full symphony orchestra and choir. The same world-class musicians who record the top Hollywood film scores perform in these sessions. This is an amazing opportunity for a composer, whether new or established in the film music community, to create or enhance his demo portfolio and gain the experience of working in a professional environment. Segments of 25, 50, or longer recording times may be reserved and purchased at the Demo Session rate.  Demo sessions may be shared with other composers to reduce the overall costs of the musicians, studio and engineer fees.

The incredibly low demo rates allow composers to create extensive portfolios and recordings intended for promotional purposes, including presentation for films, videogames, and television projects. Encompass also offers an on-going series of demo sessions created to give composers and songwriters the opportunity to record their music with a full symphony orchestra or a small ensemble.

With so much competition and quality of product that is present in today’s market place, it is vital that the production value heard by potential employers and clients is recorded at the highest levels possible. This includes access to the top studio musicians, vocalists, studios and engineers in Los Angeles. Competition is fierce and your demo is your audio calling card. 

We pride ourselves in having a fantastic success rate both composers and songwriters have had in receiving jobs from the recordings they have made with these world class talents. Demo scale rates are based on the size of the group and are as low as $30 per hour with a 1 hour minimum booking.
