What’s The Story?

“Every picture tells a story, but only the music makes it come to life.“

THE LABEL

STORY RECORDINGS is a carefully curated label, founded in Berlin by artists for artists, that showcases the highest level of expressive and authentic music composed by a diverse group of uniquely talented and inspiringly creative artists from all over the world.

Our catalogue includes a far-reaching musical palette of themes, emotions, and styles, while a simple title and photographic image on each of our album covers defines the intrinsic nature of our thoughtfully crafted musical stories. This combination assists filmmakers and editors in finding that perfect soundtrack to underscore and enhance their creative visions quickly and intuitively at any stage of the production process.

We take pride in ensuring that each and every track is expertly produced, mixed, and mastered to the highest possible standards with film and advertising usage in mind, guaranteeing top-quality music that fits seamlessly into any polished production.

Whether it’s adding a powerfully emotive layer to finish an existing sequence, or perhaps even inspiring the development of an unwritten scene, music can do that for us. It evokes an emotional response in a way that visuals alone cannot. A single piece can even provide the creative spark for a full length film, documentary, or series.

Simply put: music itself tells a story. Like all good stories, the magic of a great piece of music has the power to capture our hearts and minds, to touch something deep within us, and to help us connect with something much greater than ourselves.

That’s our STORY.
Tell us yours.
