With a 15-year tenure in the music business, Jarred Causly has influenced music creators to compose beyond the boundaries of everyday listening and create with an ear of visual imagination.

I’ve always held to the fact that music is visual; the more you can pull an image out of your sound, the better it makes for your composition to be licensed.” – Jarred Causly

My Story

Starting with a musically trained ear at an early age, Jarred synchronized his personal compositions to dubbed videotapes of his favorite animated action scenes. He began showcasing his work at the many creative music outlets across Los Angeles, which soon led to his first apprenticeship with world-renowned composer and music producer, Robert Rettberg. While under Rettberg’s tutelage, Jarred quickly gained the attention of his peers with an innovative visual sound that would catapult him into becoming a creative licensing standout.

He was soon recognized for his amazing “sync-ear” and within months, his work began to gain traction with securing music placements with brands like Adidas, Ford and Nascar; along with getting music featured in major television networks across the globe.

With having early success in landing placements, Jarred turned his passion for sync licensing into a career. His start began with a three-year tenure at the Winogradsky/Sobel (WinSo) Music Licensing Firm. He locked in as the head of Sync A&R and Lead Music Curator. While working for WinSo, his production catalog maintained its traction and secured further placements with ABC’s record-breaking sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother” TNT’s “Franklin and Bash” and NBC’s “Criminal Minds”.

After his time at WinSo, Jarred focused on building a network of independent creative licensing professionals. This collective would form the Illiad Music Library which was a platform comprised of fellow music composers, artists, and producers. The Illiad Music Library was responsible for hundreds of music placements in TV, Film, Documentaries and Advertisements. The success of the library led to Jarred and his team writing custom music for the APM music library. These works are still being used by production houses to this day.

Jarred Causly continued to navigate his way through the music business, forging his way through the ever-changing world of sync licensing. He has worked for a handful of music companies throughout his journey, including the illustrious Universal Music Group. Working for UMG opened his perspective and helped him broaden his skill-set – leveling up his expertise in creative sync and honing his music clearance savvy.

Today, Jarred is the Lead Music Supervisor of TV Promo and Trailers for Trailer Park Group in Hollywood, California. Jarred works on projects for a myriad of brands and TV platforms like Tubi, Freeform, ABC, NBC, Hulu, Disney+, BET+, and more. He’s responsible for selecting music to support TV promos, TV trailers, and network sizzles for Trailer Park’s producers, editors, and clients. When conducting music searches, he works with major and indie labels alike, along with dozens of music publishers and music libraries in order to find the perfect compositions to pair with media.
