Acclaimed platform connects music supervisors with culturally diverse music by artists from around the world
San Francisco, CA – Oct 28, 2022 – Television series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story continues to dominate Netflix viewership having recently become the platform’s second-most popular English language series of all time. Featured music was provided by Seven Seas Music, the go-to platform for music supervisors to discover and license music from over 145 countries. Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story features
a piece by Molam Lao, a group of khen musicians and Lam singers originally from Laos.
“Seven Seas works closely with Dan Wilcox, a renowned music supervisor and radio host,” said Seven Seas co-founder Brooke Wentz. “We had given him this music a few years prior for another project, so Dan contacted me directly about using this song specifically in the Dahmer series.”
Seven Seas has confirmed that overall revenue from TV, film and advertising licensing grew over +400% as of August 2022. The number of incoming music requests to Seven Seas has increased +133% YTD.
Other recent placements from the Seven Seas catalog include “San Prota Den Me Agapas,” a song by Greek bouzouki soloist Manolis Chiotis, featured in Hulu’s What We Do in the Shadows; Turkish/ Romani clarinet virtuoso Selim Sesler featured in Bull from CBS Studios; and “Get to You” by La Felix, a Funk/Nu Disco artist based in Auckland, New Zealand, highlighted in the trailer for Amazon’s latest film, My Fake Boyfriend.

Continuing Seven Seas’ efforts to accelerate creator access to income generated by their music, the recent placement of the song “Barübana Yagien” by The Garifuna Collective in an episode of Apple TV’s Little America allowed funds to be sent to the artist early to cover urgent medical bills.
Earlier this year, Seven Seas announced their representation of the recorded music catalogs of celebrated labels Six Degrees Records, Altafonte Records and Putumayo Records, significantly increasing the depth and quality of the Seven Seas Music catalog.
