8199 Music Group + 8199 Recordings
If you would like to license any of our music for film or TV, or if you have a project/soundtrack that you're interested in having original recordings for, please reach out to us via our contact page here.
Major label mindset with an indie label approach. The more you learn about the music business, the more you realize that it is definitely less about the music than it is the business - at least from the label/industry side. We believe that indie artists, and signed artists alike, should have a proper understanding of the industry, and their relationship to it. What's important to us? Owning our publishing and masters (recordings), artists being able to make a living with music and continuing to embark on other creative opportunities in this new age of the music industry. Thus, 8199 Recordings.

The "ode-to-the-80s" comedy feature film, A High School Story, written and directed by Nathan Blair (A Perfect Chord, 2nd Greatest), nabbed not one, but two, of Boss Eagle's tracks for the movie - the hard-hitting-yet-inspirational track "Ivan Drago" and the Hip-Hop-meets-Motown jam, "Baby." This is a honor for Boss Eagle and we at 8199 Recordings/8199 Entertainment are truly grateful to have a musical "role" in the film (pun intended)!
