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.

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.
We would love to become your ‘trusted source” in case you are looking for blues and related music.
In recent years we had over 45 placements of our music in popular tv series, films and commercials. Our music was used in film (a.o.

Our catalogue contains a wide variety of blues and blues related music (780 tracks at this moment) and we constantly keep adding new ones. Over 550 tracks are one-stop and most of the rest is very easy to clear. Besides more traditional blues / roots music we also have some interesting projects that mix blues with (electronic) elements of modern dance music. Just contact us with the details of your music needs and we’ll immediately get to work compiling a playlist for you to preview. And if we don’t have music that fits your needs, we will also tell you so. Below you will find some playlists with examples from our catalogue
