Senior Music Supervisor
Holly Fagan has strong roots in song writing and commercial copy—specializing in the urban/hip hop idiom. She began her musical career on stage performing alongside industry heavyweights such as Deon Estus in Maui, HI. As a hip hop MC, she began working with composers with backgrounds ranging from the very classical to the more urban. She travelled between Montreal, NY and Germany to record her first 2 albums and expand her music network.
Holly’s industry experience began in radio broadcast—writing and voicing ads (94.7 HITS FM), as well as writing and singing jingles for some major North American brands (Pizza Pizza, Dominos).
Liberty Music Trax is a music licensing and jingle house based in Montreal and it’s also a company that Holly built from the ground up. After aggregating over 7,000 trax from close to 400 artists and composers worldwide, she began making placements in TV, film and games: servicing the biggest American networks (“The Good Wife” CBS) and working with Canada’s top music supervisors (S.L. Feldman and Associates and Michael Perlmutter).
Realizing how service-based these segments of the industry are, Holly then decided to found a very specialized music service of her very own: the BOMB Music service. She then partnered with an incredible music resource and clearance team in LA called Music Supervisor Inc.
Music Supervisor Inc. is in charge of all music services at Dick Clark Productions for incredible music rich programming such as: “So You Think You Can Dance”, “The Country Music Awards”, and many others.
