Cleod9 Cleod9 is a music production company that creates original music for videos, commercials, docs and film.
(43)

Our company started with a modest goal. To bring affordable, quality and original music to storytellers. Filmmakers can invest valuable time searching for music by exploring soundcloud profiles or navigating large music databases. Even if they find the right track, it can be costly and the wrong fit. We wanted to fix this problem…that’s why we created Cleod9 Music. Cleod9 is a music production company that creates original/licensed music for filmmakers and production studios. We have worked on a wide range of national & international projects, including commercials, digital shorts, documentaries and film. Whether it’s a custom track or pre-made song, the goal of our approach remains the same - create unique and powerful music to help tell your story. Contact us with your project and vision. We are excited to hear your story and collaborate on your next feature!

Video: Outdoor All-Stars: Jainee Dial and Lindsey Elliott

A few weeks ago, our friend Sashwa Burrous asked us to provide the soundtrack for an Outside Magazine project, “Go RV’ing.”
~
For studio heads like us, it was a breath of fresh air. If these visuals don’t inspire you to get up, hit the road and explore...then do some soul searching #cleod9

In 2015, Lindsey Elliott and Jainee Dial were sick of the “shrink it and pink it” paradigm that dominated the outdoor industry. So they created Wylder Goods, the first (and still only) online outdoor retailer for women that features an inventory vetted for functionality and sustainability. To le...

Kosta Browne Winery

“Shore to Shore” is a mini documentary we scored for Kosta Browne Winery. It explores the irrefutable synergy between wine and food.

Thank you Rachid Dahnoun for trusting us with the soundtrack. You captured an amazing story! #feedthesoul

“Shore to Shore” mini-documentary debut. Watch the film. Join the journey.
.
There is an irrefutable synergy between wine and food. But this is only half the story—an incomplete circle. The other half is an invisible narrative, one that speaks to a sense of place—to the origins of an ingredient. “Shore to Shore” chronicles the collaborative partnership between our Winemaker Nico Cueva and Hawaiian Chef of the Year, Mike Lofaro.
