Musicians faced the test of time and commitment when the pandemic known as COVID-19 put a stop to most live shows, placing limitations on how artists could make money in an already difficult and competitive industry.
But as they explored new ways to stay afloat, many artists found success in the well-established alternative – the decades-long practice of licensing their music for television, film, and video games.
One unmatched music artist LG , whose work is featured on productions by Netflix, ABC, Xbox, and USA Network, among others.

The practice of licensing songs for a video format is known as synchronization, or sync, licensing.

Q: How did you get to where you are today?
A: My story started young at the age of 4 my mother would write me songs and sing them to me until I memorized them. 5 years later at the age of 9 I was writing and freestyling my own songs in my basement. At 12 I was gifted protools for Christmas and from that point on I record 8/9 songs a day until I left home for college. As a popular college athlete I started throwing parties and performing at my
Events. The buzz helped me sale over 500 hard copy mixtapes on campus. I was later asked to join 2 college tours. After graduating from college, I was featured on the top Philly radio station power 99 and New York’s top station hot97. A few months later I was approached with an opportunity to make music for TV & Film in LA and decided to take a chance. After 2 years of being in LA, my music is now featured on many ads and trailer for brands like Netflix, Xbox, Nickelodeon, Espn, UFC, and more!
