At KVH Studios, we pride ourselves on being flexible, cost-effective, and innovative when it comes to saving costs for our clients. We can work to any budget and offer a wide range of services to meet your needs.
Over the past 5 years, there is one particular area we have invested a great deal of time, resource and enthusiasm into, having identified huge cost-savings for our clients, existing and new.
Non-copyright music, or royalty free as it’s also known, allows clients to forego paying music licenses due to the artists featured being unsigned. For large site businesses this is particularly worthwhile as clients can pay thousands each year on music licensing and this option eliminates that cost.
Back in 2008 we started our journey to build a high-quality non-copyright database that would provide a cost-effective alternative to using music affiliated to royalty collection societies PPL and PRS. With the added benefit of providing up and coming artists with a platform to showcase their music to a wide audience and gain vital exposure.
Over the years, appetite grew for royalty free music due to the improved suitability for commercial environments and the popularity outside of this, with commercial radio stations broadcasting tracks and the likes of the BBC championing artists. With this, around 2015 we turned our efforts to expansion and quality improvement of this database to allow us the same flexibility and control when profiling the tracks as we do with copyright music.
Today we are very pleased to be able to offer the biggest independent music platform in the UK with 250,000+ commercially friendly tracks, 35+ styles and profiling opportunities aligned with footfall and demographic plus seasonal to create effective and engaging music services for brands without compromise.
“In 2019, KVH Studios announced they had new updates to their non-copyright music. As a charity we are limited in the music we can play due to costs, so for us having a modern, vibrant and commercial feel to our instore music has been invaluable. The roll out of our new sound in-store was seamless from start to finish, and it’s been so refreshing for us to hear such positive feedback from our stores and customers regarding the new tracks.”

We’ve had huge praise for our non-copyright music provision with nothing but positive feedback from clients and stores, successful awarding of business through comparison trials, song requests from staff and an increase in new clients taking the provision. All reinforcing quality assurance. And this work is ongoing as we continue to expand the quantity of tracks and style options for our clients.
“The non-copyright music from KVH Studios is the perfect choice for us, not only is it cost-effective but it’s always fresh and appropriate for the time of day. We don’t have to do anything, it’s all taken care of by KVH Studios so we don’t have to worry about it and can focus on our customers, and you’ll usually find yourself singing, humming or bopping along to the tunes. Great service.”
