SyncWeasel has been launched in Orlando, Florida, as a new Production Music Library. The company offers clients working across all media fresh music tracks (3,000 upon launch) culled from emerging artists around the world. The announcement was made today by David Katzoff, CEO/Founder, Jay Stollman, Director of Business Development, and Phil McArthur, Creative Director.
SyncWeasel provides hip, fresh music tracks created and produced by a worldwide network of acclaimed composers, musicians and songwriters. These tracks are meticulously curated, constantly updated, and assembled in the company’s easy-to-use and comprehensive production music library. SyncWeasel tracks are pre-cleared, ready-to-license music for all media created by composers who have provided music for major TV and film projects, advertising campaigns and interactive media clients. In addition, SyncWeasel also offers music supervision services and custom music production, upon request.
SyncWeasel’s composers have created music for and with many of the world’s leading entertainment industry brands, including major TV networks and streamers, and production companies, including CBS, NBC, ABC, A&E, Spike, Nick, X-Games, History, GSN, FOX, DirecTV and CNBC.

Regarding the formation of SyncWeasel, Mr. Stollman said, “Given the ever-increasing number of broadcast TV, cable, satellite, film, streaming, online and digital media platforms and opportunities that exist today for composers and songwriters by which to get their music heard, we felt now would be a great time to throw our hat into the ring! There’s a huge market out there for fresh, never-before-heard audio, and we are working in a highly collaborative manner with remarkably gifted musicians and composers from every corner of the globe. We think that having fresh new tracks that have never seen the marketplace previously will bring a creative infusion into the media world. We invite potential new clients to check out our offerings – we’re confident they’ll hear exciting new material they’ve never experienced before.”

About The Founders
David Katzoff A native of Orlando, Florida, David Katzoff launched a very successful IT product/services company deeply involved within the Life Sciences space in 2003.

As the keyboardist in a New York City-based band called Strangers On A Train, Katzoff and his band mates enjoyed many successful gigs such as Fleet Weeks, where the group shared the bill with Joan Jett and Marcy Brothers. Strangers On A Train also performed in other well-known Manhattan-area venues, such as My Father’s Place, The Bitter End, Kenny's Castaways, the China Club, and Maxwells.
