Introducing Apple Music for Business

Today we are excited to introduce Apple Music for Business, brought to you by PlayNetwork.

Apple Music for Business was built with the vision to help businesses engage their customers in three compelling ways:

To speak with them in the universal language of music To build emotional connections and brand affinity To create memorable and gratifying experiences


We began by asking ourselves: what challenges do brands face and how can we help address them with music? We also understood that customers demand more than just a good product or service. Now more than ever, they prefer—and choose—to be aligned with brands with whom they can identify and connect.

Apple Music for Business solves for this, and breaks new ground for business music services by combining:

An opportunity to work with music experts to develop the music identity of your brand and a custom sound that embodies it, drawing on incredible Apple Music playlists developed for every mood and genre. A technology platform built for your world, with intuitive […]

Music Discovery: October 2019

Hey, my name is Spencer Manio, Sr Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork. I listen to all kinds of music for work but I mostly listen to rap, ambient, and dad jazz on my own time. The playlist is a mix of stuff I’ve been rockin’ as of late.




Artist: Sudan Archives

Track: Confessions

Twitter: @sudanarchives

“Confessions” is the first single from violinist, singer, songwriter, and producer Sudan Archives’ upcoming debut album Athena on Stones Throw Records. It’s one of my favorite songs of 2019 and it’s perfect for me.


Artist: DaBaby

Track: Intro

Twitter: @DaBabyDaBaby

“Intro” is the lead single off Kirk, the latest album from the current king of rap, DaBaby. Who knew you could turn up to a song that samples a *NSYNC Christmas song.

Music Discovery: September 2019

Howdy! My name is J.D. Tierney, and I’ve been working as the Music Services Intern here at PlayNetwork for the past three months. To celebrate my conscription into the workforce, I thought I’d make a playlist of new music exclusively from artists about my age who are likewise beginning to embark on their musical careers. All the songs on this playlist are made by, or feature prominently, artists who are “Gen Z,” or “iGen,” or whatever the term is this week. That means they were born in year 1995 or later. For reference, I was born in 1997.

The playlist is a Smörgåsbord of hip-hop, RnB, lo-fi pop, electronic, and indie rock. Come to think of it, most of the songs here will have two or three styles of those evident in its DNA. Below I’ve written about three songs I feel are particularly noteworthy. I hope you enjoy.

Music Discovery: August 2019

Hi, I’m Alex Ruder. I’ve been a Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork for nearly 6 years now, and outside of PlayNetwork I’m a DJ at KEXP and also run a small independent label called Hush Hush Records.

Women were responsible for some of the most exciting albums of 2018 and they’re continuing to crush it in 2019. Here’s a few singles from new and new-ish women artists I’ve had on repeat this year…



Artist: Long Beard

Track: Sweatheart

Twitter: @longbeardband

I’ve been hooked on this gorgeous slice of nostalgic, melancholic, melodic guitar-pop from New Jersey’s Long Beard (aka Leslie Bear) which is the lead single from her upcoming sophomore album Means To Me, due out September 13th on Double Double Whammy.


Artist: Clairo

Track: Bags

Twitter: @clairo

Two years since breaking through online thanks to some viral YouTube videos, and one year since her impressive label debut EP, Boston-based artist Claire Cottrill (aka Clairo) is dropping her debut full-length […]

Music Discovery: July 2019

Hey there, I’m Leroy Henry, Senior Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork, recently celebrating my 20th year with the company. You hear a lot of people say, “music isn’t what it used to be” and “how can I find new stuff that I don’t know about?” That’s where we come in as music supervisors. I’m always searching high and low for songs that have good melody, interesting arrangements, good quality musicianship, clean and clear production, nice vocals, and maybe even a good message. Here are some of my favorites from the past few months and weeks I’d like to share with you. Hope you enjoy.



  Artist: Jessy Wilson

Track: Clap Your Hands

Twitter: @heymswilson

This is the artist I’m most excited about right now – and if you think she sounds familiar, you’re right. She sang backup to Alicia Keys, was a big part of the Muddy Magnolias, and has worked with John Legend, her mentor. Imagine sassy, sultry vocals with a seductive […]
