Music Supervisor Joy Tillis, owner of WJOY Music Search & Licensing, connects ad agencies, corporate clients and film makers with the music they need. She performs advanced searches beyond the common listings found on the Internet, queries availability of music for licensing, and can negotiate usage for all needs.
In business for over eighteen years, WJOY works with major ad agencies in Chicago, New York, and LA, regional agencies, corporations, and both documentary and feature film makers throughout the US and Europe. Joy maintains strong relationships with music publishers, libraries, and masters (labels); has searched for pre-recorded and stock music using specific, project-directed criteria such as mood, theme, keyword, artist, and era; identified songs for client consideration; queried music availability and cost; and identified, negotiated, and licensed music from publishers and master holders for use in every media including the Internet. WJOY also licenses songs for musicals and live theater performance .
WJOY is often called upon to perform music research for attorneys and has acted as expert witness and advisor in music use disputes.
