MondoTunes fuels dreams. They’ve helped us land several national commercial licensing deals for independent artists, dozens of television sync licenses for indie rock bands, and through their commitment to artists, MondoTunes reminds me every day about why I went into this business back in 1990…for great music created by passionate artists. I’m excited about the journey ahead, and how MondoTunes & POC Media can blaze some new trails together!”
