MediaTracks | About

MediaTracks is a family-run independent production label, supplying authentic and innovative music to the worlds of TV, film, and advertising for over 25 years.

Founded in 1996 by Steve Johnson, a prominent composer and performer, MediaTracks has always sought to provide high-quality music for the worldwide broadcast industries. Steve set up the company after spending a great deal of time writing for other libraries, alongside performing with high-profile bands. Steve grew the MediaTracks family by bringing on other composers and working alongside his wife, Wendy, to build a diverse catalogue of music tracks. Steve and Wendy’s goal was always to build a network of writers where quality and relationships were key to the success of the music. To date, MediaTracks has released over 200 albums showcasing the work of their writers, and providing customers with a tremendous choice to meet their requirements.

After Steve’s death in 2019, Wendy maintained the business until 2021 when the company passed to new ownership. Father and son team Andrew and William Saunders came on board to continue Steve’s legacy and move the business forward. With Andrew’s background in developing multi-million pound businesses, and William’s experience as a professional musician, the Saunders family will continue bringing world-class music to customers across the globe.

WhatMakesUsDifferent?

At MediaTracks, we’ve been doing things differently for 25 years. We’re artist-centred, building strong relationships with each composer who works with us. We’re passionate about developing young and diverse talent through our collaborations and mentoring schemes, and championing voices which are under-represented in the music industry. We’re an independent, family-owned production label - but we operate on a global scale. We’re represented around the world by an impressive collection of sub-publishers, and we produce high quality tracks covering choral and vocal, pop and dance, and world music. If all this sounds good to you, get in touch with us to find out more.

Part of this forward-thinking strategy is to collaborate with diverse partners to get the best out of today’s composers.
