Custom Channels is a new kind of digital music service designed for music conscious brands. We create in-store and online music and messaging channels for businesses of all types. We go beyond background music.
Custom Channels grew out of SBR Creative Media, specialists in advising and consulting radio stations throughout North America in Triple A, Adult Alternative, Modern Rock and Classic Rock formats.
We’ve got the experience
Launched in 1999, Custom Channels started by creating online side channels for hundreds of radio stations. Then, we took our knowledge, experience and vast music library and created a new service: custom music and messaging for business, with all ASCAP and BMI music licensing covered, and delivered over the Internet.
Today, we provide outstanding, individualized service for clients that range from one location to hundreds; businesses that are web-only to festivals that draw tens of thousands of people. Upscale restaurants, sandwich shops, fitness clubs, health care facilities, coffee shops and hair salons are just a few of the businesses that say “my music is from Custom Channels!”
We’re located in Boulder, Colorado, in a small, non-corporate, environmentally conscious office where employees don’t wear ties and a great BBQ joint is next door. We listen to music all day, every day!
