LR-Tom-Vale2FirstCom Music, a provider of music for film, broadcast and new media, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tom Vale as film & TV licensing manager.

Vale joins the FirstCom Music team from Austin, Texas. He founded Frog Music Licensing in 2010 with the goal of connecting the singer songwriter talent found in Austin with placement opportunities in TV, film, advertising and gaming worldwide.

“We are thrilled to have Tom on our team. His passion for music has been a guiding influence for music supervisors and producers from coast to coast. He has the unique ability to find just the right music to perfectly set a scene,” said Carol Riffert, vice president/GM-FirstCom Music. “His extensive experience working with the Film and TV community and his knowledge of music licensing are a winning combination for our clients.”

Vale has facilitated music placements in an extensive line up of television programs, including Nashville (ABC), Empire (FOX), Breaking Bad (AMC), The Walking Dead (AMC), The Good Wife (CBS), Ray Donovan (SHO), Togetherness (HBO), The Following (FOX), Twisted (ABC), Californication (SHO), Parenthood (NBC), Sons of Anarchy (FX), Lucifer (FOX), From Dusk Til Dawn (El Rey), Satisfaction (USA), Casual (Hulu), Private Practice (ABC), Hart of Dixie (CW), Royal Pains (USA), Degrassi Next Generation (Teen Nick), The Listener, Heartland, and in the films Everything Must Go, Hold Your Peace, The Expatriate, Snitch, The Loft, and more, plus in national ad campaigns for Goodyear Tires, Nabisco, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, PGA Golf, and more.

“I launched Frog ML after working as an assistant to the acclaimed music supervisor Thomas Golubic at SuperMusicVision (Six Feet Under) and after many years working in the music library & studios at L.A.’s KCRW, and as a music journalist for Alarm, Under the Radar, Sentimentalist, and others,” said Vale. “Now, my music career has brought me to one of the top production music houses in the industry. I am excited to be working with the FirstCom Music team. Their professionalism, the talent, the attention to detail demonstrated by the entire crew has really blown me away. There is no question that we have a tremendous resource to offer the film and TV community.”
