Black Toast Music Expands Advertising Industry Success by Licensing New Indie Artists to Recent Ad Campaigns

Prominent independent music publisher and production music library Black Toast Music continues to expand its outreach within the advertising industry. CEO/Founder Bob Mair has announced that Black Toast recently licensed tracks from three of its artists, Paul Otten, Brent Magstadt, and Jen And Them – each of whom is signed to Black Toast Records (the company’s record label) to a number of notable advertising campaigns.

Regarding the company’s expansion within the advertising space, Mair said, “Through solid new relationships with top marketing agencies and production companies, we have been extremely fortunate to have supplied tracks from a variety of our newly signed Indie Artists to a diverse array of exciting, recent advertising campaigns.”

The spot, featuring Otten’s extremely upbeat and catchy tune, just broke across the U.S. and Canada. The new campaign promotes a variety of uses for colored duck tape during everyday life moments.
