UK production music company rebrands to Cavendish Music following ole acquisitionFeb 24 2016










With the recent acquisition by ole of U.K.-based Imagem Production Music, which embraced its storied heritage by rebranding as Cavendish Music following the deal, ole adds 240,000 tracks to its existing production music library which now exceeds 750,000 controlled tracks.

According to the release announcing the rebranding, this creates new cross-marketing opportunities with ole’s other production music library businesses.

Cavendish immediately adds representation of this larger repertoire and will continue to operate as an independent entity under the ole umbrella serving its existing client base and market.

The Cavendish name already has a long and storied history in the UK.

When celebrated classical music publishers Boosey & Hawkes formed in 1930, it set the stage for this forerunner in the seminal production music industry. Cavendish Music was established as a separate production music company by B&H in 1967 and quickly established itself as a production music heavyweight.

In making the announcement, Gareth Owen, General Manager of Cavendish Music, explained, “Cavendish is a renowned brand that has always operated and moved ahead of the times, whilst remaining fiercely independent throughout.”

“The Cavendish name signifies quality and service and we wanted to make a renewed commitment to our clients that we will continue to bring them the best in service and repertoire. It’s incredibly exciting to have a chance to evolve and grow Cavendish in new and innovative ways.”

Cavendish Music maintains a vast library of music crafted especially for TV, radio, and film. This includes orchestral music, trailer tracks, promo cues with multiple edit points, and music beds based on a range of genres from composers of award-winning film and television soundtracks.

Their in-house team includes engineers who have worked with Madonna, U2, William Orbit, Trevor Horn, Cathy Dennis, and many more.

The company also provides U.K. representation to production-music catalogs from around the world, including 5 Alarm, Sonoton, Sonic Quiver, Epic Score, Gothic Storm Music, and 1Revolution Music.
