Hal Leonard

We’re fortunate and proud to call the world’s largest music publisher, Hal Leonard, our number one client. Much of our work for HLC is the production of fully realized recordings of their vocal music products. These products span the entire range of musical genres from the latest Katy Perry hit, to the most current Alan Menken musical on Broadway; a vocal percussion driven a’cappella song from the movie “Pitch Perfect 2” to an authentic recreation of “ethnic world music” from all over the globe.

McGraw-Hill

Since 2003, Umbrella Media has created, composed and produced sound tracks for McGraw-Hill’s best selling music education series, “Spotlight On Music”

This work puts us directly in the bull’s-eye target of the heated controversies of “Common Core” and State Standards for Adoption of Curriculum across the USA. We love the creative possibilities that navigating through this tricky and politicized environment can offer.

International Commercial Spots

Clients from around the world use our abilities to identify the hottest emerging talents, both vocal and instrumental from the Hollywood session market place. One of great companies we serve is Mr. Music of Tokyo.

Mr. Music founder Kazou Yoshie believes that casting LA singers and musicians can separate his commercial productions from the clutter in the highly competitive Japanese advertising industry. Umbrella Media packages and produces many of Mr. Music’s music tracks for the world’s largest ad agency Dentsu.

Skype Sessions

Umbrella Media has devised ways to use the power of Skype to connect our clients from all over the globe to our LA studio and to the most talented artists in the world.

With our technology, we connect content creators directly to the headphones of our session performers. Often before starting a session we’ll use our control room to conduct a brief “project meeting”. Soon after we’re recording and getting instant feedback and production direction. After the session we upload the finished files using our FTP site.

For certain projects we also broadcast a private stereo audio stream at 16 bit- 44.1 so that critical evaluations can be approved instantly.

Some days at Umbrella we connect to Dallas, Chicago, Tokyo and London’s Abbey Road Studio as we bring the Hollywood’s top session talent to projects in distant locations.
