Launched in 2003, WACBIZ emerged out of the music industry at a time when the future was unclear and volatile. WACBIZ set its sights and goals for these independent artists, writers, and producers and their managers to work cooperatively as a team, with a network of executives at the core, providing the leadership needed to develop a new movement in the music industry through digital independence.
WACBIZ offers expertise at every level, striving to protect the compositions and copyrights artists have worked hard to create, while promoting their music through pitches and placement. We provide administrative services to music supervisors, directors, producers and licensors in film, television and advertising, servicing music requests daily.
