Black and Tan is an independent record label & publishing company. We founded the company in 1998 and we’re based in the Netherlands. We are passionate about music and love original artists that create original music. For a few artists we also do the live bookings and tour production. Until now we’ve released 43 CD’s, 1 LP and 1 DVD most of them are by American artists. Besides we also released a lot more music “digital only”.

Sync License

We certainly do not cover all musical styles but if you are looking for some real blues (or related music) we can provide the right music for your upcoming film, television and advertisement projects. In recent years we had over 25 placements of our music in popular tv series, films and commercials.  For our sync license activities we created a separate website.

SyncBlu small

Here you can find a wide varitey of one-stop blues and blues related music. Based on the SynchTank software you can search using lots of criteria, listen and find all the info on the track, writers and publishers. Plus you can upload your video and see how it works with our tracks. At the moment there are already more then 400 tracks on the site and we constantly keep adding new ones.
