Hey John & Clyde,
My name is Rob and I am an A&R from Music Dealers. As mentioned in this article, we just partnered with Coca-Cola last year. We connect indie artists, bands, and composers with brands, TV shows, films, video games, etc. You can learn much more about our services at MusicDealers.com.
