Marmoset is an off the beaten path, boutique music agency born among the green, mountainous landscapes of the rain soaked Pacific Northwest. While we enjoy working on all kinds of inspired and creative endeavors, we spend most of our time crafting original music for story-driven mediums in the public eye. We also curate a hand picked roster of some of the most fascinating independent artists on the planet, whose recordings are made available for licensing.
Marmoset is made of real people, living real lives, making a real living crafting music and sound. We’re talking about hard working, blue collar artists, crafting music with their hands and hearts. While some of these are full-time musicians, many are baristas and bartenders too. Programmers and farmers. Fathers and mothers. Sisters and brothers.
We hold firmly to a few core values: We value collaboration because we are more informed, more talented, kinder, wiser, and better when we lean into one another. We value having fun and finding joy through artistic expression. We believe in fighting the good fight. We are advocates for the artists we partner with, working to restore value and respect for music and its creators, amidst a deteriorating global landscape that threatens its existence. We don’t believe there’s anything “stock” about music crafted with hands and hearts. And we believe doing great work and defending creative integrity always trumps the bottom line. There is a rising tide and we are all floating up together.
When artists craft music with their hands and hearts, it resonates with others and within stories crafted with the same care. We are the conduit. We are the soundtrack to your story.
