Our founding story
Epidemic Sound was founded in 2009 by five Swedish entrepreneurs with roots in the TV and music industries. In their work, they identified two problems: it was complicated to license music for use in audiovisual productions as it entailed many different parties, limitations, payment streams, and intermediaries; and it was difficult for music creators to make a living in music.
