Our Story

Sorted Noise is a team of creators that hand makes and curates music for picture. We live, work, and play in the most creative and music-centric city in the world, Nashville TN USA. We are real life, working composers, producers, programmers, musicians, singers, songwriters, and artists. Some of us play with the biggest acts in the world. Some of us write hit songs. Some of us even know Beyonce’. But the common thread that ties our crazy family together is a passion for making authentic music with true artists, and watching that music become art when paired with the right picture.

Our City

Nashville is "Music City"

We love our city.  Besides it becoming widely recognized as an “it” city in general in recent years by every tastemaker out there, it’s one of the most diverse, unique, and creative cities in the world.  Yes, every country artist known to man lives here.  But so do Kings of Leon, Kesha, Ben Folds, Jack White, Black Keys, Miley Cyrus, Paramore, Cage the Elephant, Jewel, Hot Chelle Rae, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Kelly Clarkson, Dashboard Confessional, Peter Frampton, Little Richard, Billy Corgan, Justin Timberlake, and Slipknot (yep, Slipknot).

And for every superstar, there are a 100 more amazingly talented, emerging artists of every possible genre roaming the streets of East Nashville or 12 South.

We know these artists.  We drink whiskey with these artists.  We make music with these artists.

Living in Nashville also means you’re surrounded by world class musicians. Our community is deep and wide, and includes Jack White’s bass player, Katy Perry’s guitar player, Ben Fold’s string arranger and programmer, the guitar player for Parachute, the percussionist for James Bay and Kaleo, the string players for Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor, the keys player for Third Eye Blind, and the bass player for Ingrid Michaelson and Kelly Clarkson. Just to name a few.

Our Work

Here’s just a few of the studios, networks, shows, films, agencies, and brands we’ve made and curated music for recently:

Artists & Composers

We’re always looking for new artists and composers.  But in full disclosure, we’re extremely selective and only work with people that we feel like we can do great things with.  If you think we’d be a good fit, please email us some links to where we can see and hear you.  Or, if you’ve got any questions, email us those too.



Hear something you like on the site you want to license?  Wanna hear more?  (Trust me, we’ve got plenty more).  Shoot us over any questions.



While we have an extensive, versatile, and growing catalog that we love to license, what we’re really passionate about is working with you at the idea stage and creating something specifically for you.  Whether it’s a 30 second instrumental for your ad (yes, we have E&O insurance) or a full original song for the end credits in your film, we can make the music you need in the time that you need it.  Give us a shout to learn more.



We believe the transition into the digital age has created amazingly powerful “band + brand” opportunities.  When there’s a project that we’re passionate about, we love going beyond the song.  Whether it’s a live performance at a brand event, a soundtrack release for your TV show, a social media viral video, or any other crazy unique idea.  We can help you execute it.
