sync licensing for film, tv & commercials


“I’m not a machine” is a music for media company that launched in December 2013 and which emerged out of I’m not a machine productions (est. 2006). Run by Verity Pabla – we are predominantly a Sync Licensing Agency for an exclusive handpicked selection of emerging British artists & producers, plus award-winning American composer Chris Thomas [on Gorfaine/Schwartz] & gospel/soul/jazz artist Donald Hayes [Robin Thicke, Eric Benet, Marcus Miller]. 


Additionally, we offer top quality & award nominated one-stop production music on the I’m not a machine label, from a selection of our commercially releasing producers & artists. Our sub-publishing partners are listed below. We have just started to work with ROBA Label Services (Hamburg), in order to also release the production music albums for fans to hear on the streaming/download sites too!


Recently we did an industry release of the second epic adventurous album ‘Spirited Quest’ from I’m not a machine Trailer Music, courtesy of Chris Thomas. This followed on from the beautifully dramatic debut album ‘Glory | Tragedy’.


We also publish the commercial works of writers Greg Schofield (aka Guy Called Greg) & Verity Pabla, with a selection of their co-writes represented exclusively for sync by Secret Road.


In essence, “I’m not a machine” is all about authentic artists producing awesome tunes, with an emphasis on a quality service all around – for music supervisors, clients, partners & our roster! Our A&R standard is high & we work with Simon Long of Collins Long Solicitors, London – nominated for Music Week’s Law Firm Of The Year 2018 – to ensure all contracts are watertight and fair to everyone involved with I’m not a machine. The music itself does range in genre but we don’t try to fit every single gap & we definitely don’t have Jingles or albums entitled “Strings Vol 3” for example! We represent quality underground talent mostly in the fields of British Singer-Songwriter, Electronica & Grime. The I’m not a machine Sync Sampler will give an idea of the selection of our music & the following is one of our latest placements!
